We had a very good meal and attentive service at this charming oceanfront restaurant. The food was delicious-- well-seasoned and interesting choices.

Amazing to be dining right on the beach....We had a piece of fish that was a bit dry & so they took it off the bill & gave us a most delicious creme broule as well...!! That's the way to make your customers happy! Would definitely go back! :)

Last time we were here it was awesome. This time it was very mixed. We were 4 people sitting outside. The service was very slow and not very attentive. We had empty cocktail glasses on the top until dessert. And it was tough to get another round. I will say that the wait staff was very knowledgeable and helpful when... More

I visited Puerto Rico for the holidays and Pamela's was recommended to me by a friend. I really enjoyed the experience, having lunch on the beach and going back for dinner. The ambiance is wonderful, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious. If you go, the ceviche is a must and the paella for dinner was... More

Food was delicious and service was excellent!! Sat at a table on the beach. Local fusion cuisine was fantastic. Entire family enjoyed the selection--including my kids. Not our first time at Pamela's--go every year and the menu selection always has something new to try. Looking forward to our next visit!

We had a drinks and tapas here. It was bit over price but can't beat the atmosphere. This is the only restaurant at this beach.

Pamela's is right on the beach in Ocean Park which made for a nice evening meal. The restaurant is known for the local cuisine; especially fresh fish dishes. We sat outside on the beach. Our meals were good. Tasty fresh fish and veggies. A reasonably good wine list and good cocktails. Andrea was attentive and helpful with the menu, descriptions... More

If you can get a table on the beach, go for it. The best experience here would be to sit outdoors. We were seated indoors and had a small indoor, lifeless pool area to stare at. Dinner entrees are expensive -- but the atmosphere and facility are not up to the prices. Service was good. Long wait for the food,... More

We visited twice. Once for drinks while on the beach (great) and once for dinner (not so great). Dinner was interesting. The calamari we started with was not the traditional presentation or flavor. We enjoyed the new perspective, but it wasn't very tasty. My wife enjoyed her Paella, but my NY strip steak was incredibly rare despite being requested as... More

Ok my husband's fish sandwich was average, at best. My so-called Caesar Salad was not a Caesar salad at all -- a small portion of limp lettuce, no Caesar dressing, stale Parmesan, no croutons, and four undercooked shrimp for $18. What a waste of time and $43. (They added 15% gratuity) Go down the street to Oceania restaurant.
