LOVED the octopus appetizer ($9). Only downfall of this restaurant is they charge $0.25 for hot sauce. Hate that, it's like charging customers for ketchup. A friend ordered churrasco for dinner every night and he votes this as the best churrasco of all the restaurants we dined in. Diet coke: $1.40 Churrasco: $17.00

The best thing about this restaurant is the 2 for 1 mojitos and all the different flavors. Coconut mojito was great. But I was looking for the best mofongo and it was not There mofongo is not very flavorful and I actually had to add salt. Service was great appetizers were good.

We loved the Mofongo at Punto de Vista so much that we had to go 2 days in a row. An absolutely excellent meal for the entire family. I ate the recommended Puerto Rican dish at least 6 times at various restaurants and this is the only place worth telling all of Trip Advisor about. Currently located right across from... More

I went to dinner at Punta de Vista because the owner (the incomparable Mike Walstrom) is a longtime friend of mine from high school and because the reviews were so good. I am very happy to report that the experience was every bit as great as I had hoped. I had the chicken mofungo, which was excellent and the best... More

It was close to the port which was nice, we had planned on eating lunch in San Juan so it was nice not have to go far since we all were hungry. Had to sit outside since there was nothing available inside (either that or they couldn't seat a group of 5). So it was pretty hot eating outside but... More
