Just okay

It's okay, but we wouldn't visit again. Generally more expensive than it should be. The view out back is fine but is overlooking the bay, not the ocean (as the name implies). There are better selections in Arecibo.

I felt like taking the one hour drive back and telling the tour guide that gave us the recommendation to stop sending people there. My wife and are foodies and we try to see the best in every restuarant we eat at. But this place was just a mess. Ambience: it has none. The place has a very strong chemical... More

I went with my mother in law and my wife. She ordered the lobster and got to pick one from the tank. She liked it. My wife ordered "mofongo" with shrimp and was pleased. I ordered the fish fingers and vegetables and were prepared to perfection, nice and tender out side soft and delicious inside. My daughter ordered another version... More

This place has no class at all at least in my point of view thanks to the worst waitress ever. By the way her name is Brenda. I went with my girlfriend to this place and the waitress lasted 17 minutes tu bring our drinks: water and a limonade. We order chicken winds for appetizers and later the principal plates.... More

Slow service was expected, but the illness afterwards was not! The food was served slightly off temperature. My 2 kids felt a rumbling stomach w/i an hour. Bathroom had no running water or soap (how are employees washing hands?). View is a dirt parking lot - back end of a boat ramp area.

The food was very good. They have a deck in case you want to eat out close to the beach. Not the fastest service but worth the wait. The menu is excellent and if you are into Caribbean food you'll have a ball. I got to choose my own lobster which was a first for me. They also have this... More

Terrible service. Took 10 minutes before a waiter actually gave us a menu. Ordered appetizers and those took 20 more minutes because I reminded them. At that point I was upset but continued to wait. We ate the appetizers and our drinks arrived after the fact. Now we ordered our meals. A few seconds later the waiter comes to tell... More
