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

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.

We enjoyed eating here for the food and the views. As a vegetarian, they did offer a few options, including mamposteado for my main course, and vegetarian mofongo as my side dish. My wife ordered the salmon, which was a huge portion. My son ordered "fish sticks" made of mahi-mahi. The views were great, ask for a table outside if... More

Recommended to us by friends who live in San Juan. Pretty easy to find. We were there in the early afternoon. Freshly caught fish sold by weight, the server will show you what they have and you pick! Right on the beach, very clean.
