One of the best beach views. There is very little beach so you feel like you are very close to the beautiful waves, the occasional surfer or the distant fisherman. You can also see the Arecibo Light House in the distance. The restaurant is also just up the road from La Cueva del Indio. The outside seating has a roof... More

I've been here several times, it's my local family's go-to restaurant when people come to visit. Personally, it's just not anywhere near my list of favorites. The views are wonderful, that is undeniable. The food is fair-good, some dishes fare better than others but mostly it’s average. The main draw of course is their seafood. On a handful of occasions...

Believe me, I don't mind spending a lot of money in food...but it certainly must be really good food, accompanied by good sized portions and a great service. This place has none of the above. Service was poor and very slow and we were there for dinner at around 7 pm on a week day with only another table occupied.... More

Thanks for your time taken for posting your review. I am very sorry your visit was not as you expected. We do take care of allergies and we certainly made a risky mistake if food that was not supposed to be on your plate, was there. I would appreciate if you can provide us with more details from your experience.... More

It is a very beautiful restaurant near the beach, but the lobster I ordered was over cooked and cold and also the price was very high.

The view of the ocean was great, their staff was well trained. The mango smoothie was delicious and I had the Seafood stuffed Mahi-Mahi, their side dishes were to die for and the tres leches was the best one I've had. Great time with friends and great atmosphere for the whole family.

After a long morning in Arecibo we decided to eat at Salitre. We were not disappointed! We started the meal with the best Mojitos that we have ever had. We got the calimari for an appetizer, and though a little chewy, they had great flavor. For a meal I got the Mollusks in Squid Ink and it was AMAZING! The... More

Many people complain about the slow service but I have visited the restaurant 4 times and service was satisfactory. We usually ordered the fresh fried snapper which was always very good. It's a great place to enjoy the afternoon with its beautiful location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Service must be improved; waiting time is too long; service personnel must make visitors enjoy the experience: food quality is good.

Romantic sea view, ample parking, good service, option to seat inside or outside. Patience is key esp during weekends as seafood is not previously prepared.
