Great view; great food; great service

Arrived at 2 PM on a Thursday so avoided the crowd. Unlike other reviewers we were seated promptly and exited the restaurant at about 3 PM. We sat outside with a front row seat of the pounding waves. We came for fish and were not disappointed. We had grilled red snapper (large piece) and stuffed... read more

1st visit; very happy it opens on Monday; things looked promising at the entrance; casual cafeteria style layout; no wait; very slow day; staff was attentive and knowledgable; FOOD WAS EXCELLENT! Very fresh fish; but prices are on the high side. Would expect a better ambiance for the money.

We stopped in here when in the area. We were a party of eight and they had only two other tables of two for mostly the whole time we was there. It took a very long time for food to arrive after we ordered (probably 1 hr +/-). The fish was great. I had the yellowfin tuna with a garlic... More

This place has the best and freshest seafood around. Is a little pricey, but it's worth it. Great location, the view is just breathtaking. The only complain is the servers are slow.

Went here for my in-laws Anniversary. The staff prepared everything for the special occasion at notice. The service, attention, drinks and food were exactly what we ordered ( we were a group of 15). Prepare to be treated like a King.

Our family of ten stopped in on our way back to San Juan after visiting Cueva Ventana. We found the restaurant on OpenTable.com. The view from the restaurant's patio, where we were seated, was gorgeous! The kids could get up and move around on the lawn, nice for them and us. The menu was interesting, seemed reasonably priced and had... More

Had we known how long it would take to get our food--almost 2 hours- we would of ordered appetizers. After the long wait, the food was just okay. Our waitress was nice though. I wouldn't go back.

We stayed at the Salitre hotel for several nights and had two excellent meals at the restaurant. The staff is fantastic and treated us like royalty. We enjoyed the tuna, mahi mahi, lobster tail, and a fantastic rice dish with multiple types of seafood. The atmosphere, music and outdoor oceanside seating is outstanding.

Great place right on the beach. Great attention and the staff is always verifing if they can do anything else so your stay is an pleseant one. It has an area that has A/C and another on the terrace. Great varity of wine, and diferent types of dishes. The varity goes from sea food to chicken and steaks.
