Great local restaurant at a boutique hotel. I'll admit I was a little nervous driving through the city & you park at a dead end street with a very unassuming door. But what a cool experience - the tables are literally right on what feels like a very private beach. We wanted to have some authentic cuisine while on our... More

We visited Pamela's for the first time on the night before Thanksgiving (appreciated online reservation option) and were surprised to find that there was only one other dining party present when we arrived @6pm. While they were in the attractive indoor dining area (which was heavily air-conditioned), we definitely wanted to take advantage of the option to dine on the... More

This Ocean Park restaurant is located in a guest house on the beach. We were strolling the beach, having walked down from Ashford Ave at Parque Indio, saw tables outside under some Palm trees and decided to stop for lunch. I was expecting casual beach fare. Instead the table was set with glassware, china and cloth napkins; the menu offered... More

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...
