Hidden Beachfront Bistro

Pretty protected outdoor dining, we ate here for 1 breakfast and 1 dinner and enjoyed them both. Nice variety of seating spaces. Ideal for a romantic getaway.

We were in search of an ocean front restaurant for our last evening in Puerto Rico. We came across Uvva while we walked the beach. It is a picture perfect setting with the beach & ocean right in front of your table. The paper leaflet menu didn't have a lot of selection for dinner, but that was ok. The menu... More

There were three of us for dinner on a Thursday evening. Two of us enjoyed the well prepared filet mignon. The third person was as impressed with the shrimp & clam linguini as it was very creamy.

My Wife and I had an amazing beach front dining experience last week at Uvva (the restaurant of Hosteria del Mar). The restaurant itself is beach from with candles, but they even had 5 tables actually on the beach, just feet from the ocean. There are no other hotels/restaurants on the island where you can actually have dinner on the... More

We were tipped off by another couple on the beach that this place has a great bar right on the beach and boy, we are so glad we asked them to take a photo for us or we may never have known! We had amazing margaritas (ask to have them made with fresh lime juice, Patron and Grand Marnier) expensive,... More

Great food in a cute place on the beach. The service was a little slow like many places in San Juan but easy to enjoy the beach view while you wait.

This was one of our favorite restaurants in all of San Juan during our recent weeklong vacation. The open air concept directly on the beach was wonderful. (There is also seating under a roof in case of rain.) The service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. It wasn't a large menu, but what they offered was terrific, and every... More
