Went there July 25, 2014. Place was packed, an indication that we should have gone elsewhere. Even after reading its negative reviews we entered at 5:40pm. Because we were a group of five adults and one baby we were asked to either have the meal outside with biting midges and mosquitos or in the bar area which we opted to... More

We waiting over 2 hours for our food and the waitress has very bad attitude every time we ask for our food saying we only wait 45 minutes. I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Way overly priced for the food you get. Paid $18 for 5 medium breaded shrimp, the kids meal had four shrimp with a drink for $8 so I ended up paying $10 for one shrimp. The conch salad was ok but it was a tiny serving. It also took forever to get the bill. The view is nice but it... More

We stopped at this restaurant which is just on the edge of the water on the north coast of Puerto Rico, in Islote Arecibo. Service was prompt, courteous and very helpful. We had sangria of the house, made with white wine which is my favorite. We had a sampler of several local fritters and the main entree consisted of local... More

This restaurant has the most beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean! Unfortunately the chef thinks his customers don't know the difference in the type of seafood. Here comes the bait and switch! I ordered the recommended Langostino ($30 for 4) and when the dish came the top one was a Langostino but the others under were large shrimp with the... More

Hello Gabriel S, I recall the situation and I am very sorry your experience is not what it had been for you in previous visits. All I could do was not to charge the entrée of Langostinos. We are not only restaurateurs, but fishermen, accountants and marketers. Your conclusion on the Langostinos while being creative is just WRONG. We have... More

The decoration is good, the service is very friendly but, the big asset of this restaurant is the food. The quality of the food is great and is one of the most delicious meals, ever. Don't hesitate in visit this great place for a great dinner.

We where there on Father's Day. It was a busy day for the restaurant. This do not affect the excellent service and the quality of the food. They have a terrace on the side and the back with a beautiful view. We have an excellent day there celebrating Father's Day.
