Stopped here after a long day and had the best seat in the house! The location is great, the staff was very friendly and the food....was great. I had the mofongo de pulpo with a garlic sauce, and would gladly get it again!

The first thing that I noticed was the great service, starting when we were being seated. The people working there are extremely polite. The food is so fresh and delicious, the view adds up to it all. At the end, the food is worth what you are paying for, and it's not even that expensive.

It was a little bit pricey but one of the best Mofongos with pulpo I have tasted. The wait time was not bad. The location could be better organized. Would go again.

I am a person that enjoys dinning out, as an effect I have visited many restaurants but non like Salpicon. It is its freshness, cleanliness and environment that particularly attracts customers. The staff is very attentive and the food is simply amazing. I would definitely say that my favorite dish is the carruchos, they are just DELICIOUS. I definitely don't... More

I enjoyed the fresh seafood and the view of the ocean! The server was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave great recommendations for food, in addition to recommendations of local places to visit.

We found this delightful restaurant by accident 3 years ago as we were exploring the rough north coast of PR. We travel to PR at least 4 times per year and this has become our dining establishment of choice. The food is outstanding, the staff from the chef on down are terrific people, the location is so close to the... More

I've visit this restaurant at least once a month. The food is always consistent, fresh, great taste, and always has the same flavor. It has an amazing view of the ocean and it has a great outdoor dining area. My favorite plate by far is the unique mofongo with shrimp with scampi sauce, it is by far the best mofongo... More
