Dinner with an outstanding view

We were told by our innkeepers to stop at this restaurant and we are glad we did. Each dish was superbly prepared and delicious. And then there was the view. Don't drive by this restaurant, a must stop.

This out of the way restaurant in Arecibo offers a great view to dine, especially if you sit outside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. But food leaves a bit to be desired. Appetizers were good (turnovers with lobster, cetí (a local fish), lionfish, conch and others). The lobster was overpriced and nothing to write home about. I ordered a whole red... More

The view here is beautiful. The service was good. The calamari was tough. The fresh fish (Mahi mahi) of the day was way overcooked. The dessert had been frozen and microwaved. It had warm whipped cream on top and frozen bits of cake underneath. Overall the meal was disappointing to say the least as, unfortunately, so many meals in Puerto... More

If you want to sit outside next to the ocean with waves rolling in and gently lapping on shore, this is the place. The view is perfect. Our server did a great job. Everyone enjoyed their meal, menu is large with a lot of local dishes. I had a burger, my wife went veggies only and our friends had octopus... More

This place is located on almost a rural area. It probably is the only restaurant on the street. But the food is amazing. We loved our coconut shrimp and fried calamari. This was one of a very limited places that offered spicy foods. But be prepare to see pricey meals, but worth it. We went twice during our week stay... More

Atmosphere is great. You sit under covered area overlooking the ocean and can see/hear the waves. Very tranquil and beautiful. Service was great and very friendly servers. Food was very good but plan on paying a little more here but worth it if you can afford it.

Seafood empanadillos were soooo good. The spicy sauce they have on the table is amazing. This was my favorite restaurant that I visited while I was in Puerto Rico by far!

I took my mom to my hometown crown jewel of restaurants. This is my friend's Wicho restaurant so I felt right at home. You cannot find fresher seafood than at Salitre. The food was great, the ambiance is nice, and the sunset is breathtaking. We live right next to Salitre so it is our backyard we were sharing with the... More
