Beachside restaurant with a beautiful view

We went to Salitre restaurant after visiting the Arecibo Lighthouse recreational park. It is a short drive along route 681, which runs along the coastline from Arecibo to Barceloneta. They specialize in seafood and have a wide variety of fish. I had the mahi mahi (dorado) in a passion fruit and... read more

We visited the restaurant because a friend recommend it to me. It's decorated with real ropes used to tie ships to the dock in the inside and at the terrace area, at the back of the restaurant, they even have a canon from the 17 century. The fish we ate was caught the day before and it was really good.

As a customer I feel like they don't pay attention to the details. Wrong timing at service time. Food came cold. Totally absurd ratio amount of food vs price.....pulpo a la brasa.

I had the pleasure to dine at Salitre by ramdom chance on a day road trip to Arecibo roughly a month or so ago. I sat outside on the patio and had an early dinner/ late lunch. I had a perfectly made pina colada to start and then ordered the ahi tuna sashimi in ponzu sauce which was locally caught... More

My wife and I went to Aracibo in search of Ceti Mofongo, and were unfortunately disappointed. Not because the food wasn't excellent, but because they didn't have it as the season hasn't started yet. So instead we "settled" for the paella and were very happy. Couple that with a couple of passion fruit mojitos and a wonderful ocean view, and... More

I took my friends who were here on vac. We were told that many people liked this place after they went to La Cueva del Indio (Great place). We arrived and loved the scenery. But sad to say that the food was really bad. I have been to many restaurants in the island and this by far is the worst.... More

I had been to another restaurant close by and had to ask for service and still did not get service, so I walked out, ending up in Salitre Meson Costero. Wow the service was super great and fast. The Sparkling Wine was cold and good. For main course I had Halibut with Mashed Puertorrican "yautia" . It was delicious. It... More
