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.

We sat outside and really enjoyed the ocean view and it is perfect to go with kids since they can play in the sand while you eat. Service is extremely attentive and helpful. We order lobster in two different ways. One was grilled and the other as a suggestion from the server Thermidor. The grilled one was cooked like it... More

Wonderful meal and wonderful location! We stopped here after a day trip to the Arecibo Observatory and the Camuy Caves. It was a nice relaxing end to a busy day. I chose this restaurant based on some great reviews on here and they were correct. Everything was great - the service, the food and the views. We enjoyed the spectacular... More

While the food is really good and the view to the ocean is breath-taking, the wait turns off all the good qualities of this restaurant. Waited an-hour for our food, no apologies for the wait or at least some bread (which I asked for). Wouldn't recommend during dinner time, but perhaps a late lunch, when less crowded. Bring insect repellent... More
