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

My wife and I went to Dinner here for a special birthday dinner in August. The food was average, but the prices were above average. We definitely were paying for the atmosphere and location, but the food was not worth the price, funny thing was that the bill included the tip. The tip they included was less then I had... More

We went with a group of Americans. It was a bachelor group, and the waiter totally took us to the cleaners. He convinced us to get way way more good than we needed. We felt like idiots, and the waiter knew what he was doing. It would be a great place to go with a date, but Large American groups... More

The service was amazing and it was a beach front hotel. It was in Ocean Park away from the chain hotels. I love it because it was cozy, quiet and the food was amazing. At times it seemed I had the beach to myself.

Pamela's was a disappointment. The food is overpriced. The service is not good. The tables are plastic tables with plastic chairs "plopped" in the sand. The restaurant is located in an ugly hotel with bright ugly flood lights lighting the outdoor area. The indoor space is decorated with heavy Spanish furniture which is completely inconsistent with the beach environ. My... More
