Stop here for breackfast, while is hard to mess up a breackfast, some people do. But not here, the service, food together with the view makes for a must stop morning breackfast!! Jonathan and Michel were very attentive! Forget Dennis!!!😄

We walked by this place so many times while in candado. From the street it looks lower end than it is! Walk inside to the back and oh my! Most amazing views ever. We only had drinks there which were delicious and quite a few people we met went there to eat various meals. They said the food was very... More

I had a PuertoRican dish, my wife had a Mexican dish. I loved my food and would go back for that meal, my wife never wants to go to that restaurant again! The view is beautiful and the drinks were good. If you go, don't order Mexican, go for the Puerto Rican dishes!

Super place for drinks. The view is spectacular out the back. Absolutely awesome. Can't say the same about the food. I was always told that a restaurant's food is inversely proportional to the quality of the view, and it usually holds true. However, I would return for drinks

We were not sure about this place but when we walked in, we were wowed by the scenery. It has the most beautiful ocean view, and some great food, but most of all THE BEST MOJITOS! We went back a couple of times!

Walking by this restaurant on Ashford Avenue one might think it isn't any good due to the front area being empty. Walk in to the ocean side of the restaurant and oh my! A crudely beautiful place with charming open windows to the salt air, crashing waves on the rocks and expansive ocean. You can't beat the sight and sound.... More

The first restaurant we wandered into when in San Juan. I never quite expected the view I was going to get at the rear of the restaurant, just by looking at it out front. Perfect little ocean view from wide open windows. Don Jose has a decent, extensive menu. There is really something for everyone, whether you you just want... More

Came here for a late breakfast around 11am and got a front seat of the ocean. The food is very good but the portions are a little small, perfect for a woman but not enough for my boyfriend. Just order on the heavier side, the prices are good. The view is so worth it!!! This place is absolutely amazing. Service... More

View on the back of the restaurant is very good but nothing beyond that is good in this restaurant. Our waiter was drunk or atleast felt like it by his body motion. Food was really bad. I would highly discourage going here.
