A must stop! Do you want to experience some of the best Mofongo and Mojitos on the island? Then, stop here... First off, our waitress was fantastic, friendly, and had us smiling. The menu is pretty extensive, but I would definitely suggest the Mofongo with the Garlic Sauce. Mojitos were on special while we were there - buy one get... More

Service was great at this place and the staff was incredibly friendly to out of town guests. mofongo and mojitos are a must at this place. Also, try to get a table outside as the inside is a little small. Great place to eat though.

We wanted a more low key night for dinner so we went to Old San Juan and based on reviews from TripAdvisor came to Punto de Vista for dinner. We're so happy we came. Everything from the food to the service was top notch. There was a bit of a wait but no big deal the 2 for 1 Mojitos... More

The drinks, food, and service are exceptional; and I was pleasantly surprised that it's owned by a former classmate from NJ!!! Mike (owner), Paulina, Marco, and Isabel were great and the chef/kitchen staff prepare/present food that makes your think you're in a fine restaurant! I can't wait to come back with my sweetie!

Oh...I learnt the word "mofongo" there! It is sooooo good!!!! Right on the edge of old San Juan, close to the Sheraton hotel by the port. After your meal, you can take the ferry to the other side of the sea, that is where you would visit the Bacardi factory.

After a long day of walking around we decided to eat here again. It was a welcome to the heat outside. We were seated and drink orders were taken right away. All for of us had something deferent. The food came out a little slow but that was okay. The cold air was feeling good. All the food was great... More

We went to this place recommended by a friend who had gone to Puerto Rico. The place is not very pretty... Kind of dark inside and some tables and chairs outside. It was ok, We sat outside and got a mojito and mofongo... The drink and food tasted sooo good! Nice place to try for a quick drink and food... More

We were a little skeptical about going here because of the area and how close it is to tourists and the dock, but we are so glad we came. This little place had THE best Mofongo we had out in San Juan, and we had a lot while we were on our trip. A must try is the Shrimp Mofongo... More

Upon checking in at our Old San Juan hotel, we asked the Front Desk Agent where to get mofongo. At first, he recommended a place known to cater to tourists. I waved him off and told him not to send me to that tourist trap, I want REAL mofongo. With a smile, he then directed me to Punto de Vista,... More

While I admit the atmosphere is lacking being on a busy corner the food and mojitos will take your mind off that in seconds. Never having shrimp mofongo before I was a tad skeptical but scarfed every morsel of the delicious dish. We also had the fried sweet plantains, rice, beans and steak taquitos appetizer. We were only in San... More
