Superb service from Jose...GREAT WAITER...this is a killer restaurant with awesome wines right on the sand...Why can't we do this in AMERICA? I live in Italy, and eat all summer long at OASIS NATURALE in Rome...This is a true rival in quality and service...A really amazing selection of local choices, the CERVICE was great...

My husband and I made reservations for Pamela's as a romantic dinner after our Vow Renewal in Old San Juan. They went out of their way to make it special for us. They had roses on the table. Our table was on the beach. Watched the Sunset. And while we waited for our meal we were able to walk the... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, taxi had a bit of trouble finding this place and nearly drove away as we thought it was closed. The view from the side street is very unforgiving as there is no sign or indication what is behind the high wall and gates. Luckily the driver got out and walked around on to the beach... More

The three stars are for the beautiful location on the beach. I would not consider this fine dining though. We ordered the Chorizo appetizer which came out cold and without the bread they described on the menu. We asked for bread and they said they were out and needed to make some so that took about 20minutes. We both had... More

We had our best meal in Puerto Rico at Pamela's. Located in Ocean Park, we got nervous when our taxi brought us through to a gated community and we had to buzz to get into the restaurant. Once inside we were thrilled. We were offered inside dining in a petite dining room with tables with white tablecloths or outdoor sitting.... More

We stayed at the attached Numero Uno Guest House. This is a great little restaurant. We had dinner there one night and lunch there one afternoon. Both meals were great and they were quite accommodating to me as a vegetarian. One of the great features of the restaurant is that they have beach seating...you can enjoy a meal while digging...

and you can sit out on the beach and eat!! I travelled with a vegetarian, which is tough in PR, but they made her a wonderful meal with no notice.

Sept 2nd was my engagement and a day I will never forget thanks to the service of the awesome folks at Pamela's. My fiancé had always hinted of having a romantic dinner on the beach. And no place in Puerto Rico offers a more romantic experience than Pamela's. On the day I was in contact with Ruddy, and Audrea -... More

Other restaurants in Candado and San Juan may rank higher but for food quality with local flavour this has to be right up there. Mains are well priced with entrees and desserts also high quality. It is the drinks that will see your bill climb. While many advertise dining on the beach, this is the only one I have been... More
