Awesome Beachfront Location!

The location of this restaurant is just perfect!! Tables right on the sand! The restaurant was quite a hike from our hotel, but it was worth it once we had our toes between sand as we enjoyed our sunset dinner. We did have a little hiccup once we arrived as we did not know we had to seat ourselves... read more

The awesome location, in front of the beach, during the day and super during the night to sit in front of the beach, having drinks with the tables out in the sand. They also have inside sitting facing the beach as well

Pamela's is a beachfront hidden gem! I ate there today for lunch with a good friend and we were impressed at the menu and service as well as the incredible location right on the beach. We had the passion fruit ceviche, the pork spring rolls and the burger and they were all very delicious. We had a great server who... More

The food in the restaurant is good. However, if you want good food in San Juan, there are much better choices for the price you will pay here. At Pamela's, you are paying a premium because you are next to the beach. Far from being an upscale restaurant.

We had heard good things about this place. Great location right on the beach but over priced with uninspiring food. Was not at all impressed.

Beers served with cold glasses! Your toes in the sand! A heaping bowl of exceptionally delicious calamari! We loved Pamela's for its friendly service, beachside tables, & yummy food in big portions. Our server even treated us to some sort of "tamarind moonshine" shots to celebrate our last night, really nice guy. Service and food were some of the best... More

Great food! Small menu but the food was delicious and the staff was excellent. Twice they even told us we didn't need to tip that much because gratuity was already included in the bill. But they were so friendly and helpful we didn't mind. Speaking of prices....it's definitely not cheap and the decor is nothing fancy. But it is adjacent... More

We ate this restaurant for my birthday dinner and it was wonderful. The beach and the waves in the background made this the perfect spot to celebrate! It was empty when we arrived which made us suspicious but its hard to find and worth looking for. This would be a perfect spot for a romantic dinner for two.

We were able to do dinner on the beach. It was amazing! Great food and the waves behind you. The salmon is amazing.
