I went with my wife on two different occasions during the month of February. Both times at night during the time they were supposed to be opened.Both times the place was closed. I tried calling, several times each day, from the parking lot, and got a busy signal. Tried several times during the week and, still, busy signal. Finally the... More

Went to Bamboobei for my friend's birthday. Even though reservations were made and confirmed well in advance, the restaurant was not ready for us. When we arrived at noon, there were no waiters; only the owner was there. That situation continued for THREE AND A HALF HOURS while we waited for food to be served. We were so desperate that... More

Bamboo bei is open for business. After couple of years of management turnover , Carlos the owner is back with a new partner from Italy/New York. Linda will welcome you to the most beautiful bay in Puerto Rico

I am surprised about all of the negative reviews, and feel the need to review this place because my visit in late January, 2013 was magnificent! The entire restaurant has a great ambiance. The majority of the restaurant is open-air beautifully decorated, with blue and white lights, palm trees, and relaxing music. The owner, Carlos, was incredibly friendly and brought... More

We searched for a less noisy place in Pinones and this fit the bill. A delightful terrace and secluded tables allowed for a very restful dinner. The fish was expertly finished and the tostones were the best I've personally had in the past month of eating three meals a day out. We'll definitely return to this hidden gem of a... More

My husband and i do a lot of eating out. I saw a "Gustazo" (on line coupon) for this place and bought it to give them a try. The best thing they have is the location. That's it! The staff does not have uniforms, so unless someone is carrying a tray, you can't tell who works there and who is... More

Hi, We went to Bamboobei using a Gustazo (an offer, some of the other reviews have mentioned it), the first thing I noticed was how beautiful the place is. Close to the beach, blue and white walls and inside there are many beautiful ethnic decour. However, it's such a shame that such a beautiful place has such a bad service.... More
