Great atmosphere good food

Nothing like sitting on the beach watching the sunset enjoying good food and a good breeze. The mojitos were good just had to much mint. The only thing we could find unappealing about Pamela's was the $350 bill for 4 people to eat but the atmosphere definitley made up for it. Would highly recommend.

We went to Pamela's based on the reviews. We found that the place only had a few peoples seated in a rather large space. It was right on the beach. Several of the menu items were not available when we visited. The staff was almost indifferent and not attentive. There are other more interesting options in the area. It is... More

The prices for beer are ridiculous! Lowest price is $6 for a local beer - they go up from there. No other restaurant or bar in the area charge these prices. A complete rip off to patrons and the tourists!!! They should use some of those profits to install Turtle Friendly Lights for the endangered leatherback turtles that nest on... More

My wife and I celebrated the first night of our anniversary trip to Puerto Rico with dinner at Pamela's. When we arrived, we weren't really sure we made the right choice as this appeared to be somewhat of a hole in the wall. Were we ever wrong! The staff was gracious when they found out we were on our second... More

Perfect view of the sunset while eating dinner with your feet in the sand. Very romantic feel. The food was delicious and the servers were very attentive. Looking forward to going back in the future.

My husband and I ate here 2x on our stay in Puerto Rico. Lunch was delicious. Huge portions, and the food is amazing. We came back for dinner on a different night, and we dined on the beach (tables and chairs). Very romantic - especially with the ocean just a few feet away from us. Food and service was high...

Had an amazing meal here. You can eat inside or on the beach. Incredible sunset views. The Ahi Tuna was perfection and the sangria was one of my favorites (and we drank a lot of sangrias!). The staff was so kind and made my birthday special.

This was great little restaurant on the beach in Isla Verde. The plantain crusted chicken was excellent. Make sure to go at sunset. Only downside was that since the tables are in the sand on the beach, you end up getting a bunch in your food.

Came in with my adult children from cruise ship. Spent the day on the beach. Bought the beach package which included 6 drinks each, lunch, lounge chairs and umbrella on the beach. Fantastic service. Brought our drinks to us on the beach. Then had lunch in a relaxed atmosphere in Pamela's. Great food and friendly service. Nice getaway from the... More
