Pamela's was a lovely hidden area in the ocean park area of San Juan. A gem of a restaurant, we ate there Christmas night, with a full moon, with our toes in the sand, the food was absolutely fantastic, very authentic Caribbean and Puerto Rico cuisine!!! The meal lasted for 3 hours, it was not rushed, it was fun, the... More

Wow, great cod with shrimp, and snapper with an appetizer of ceviche. When our server was asked what are your best two dishes, he told us straight up and he was totally correct. And eating wonderful seafood on the beach with great martinis was terrific.

The menu is limited, but great food right on the beach, and I mean right ON the beach! Wonderful relaxed atmosphere, great service, and good food. Inside dining is an option, but unless the weather is inclement I can't imagine why.

The view for outside dining was beautiful. Now that the good is out of the way, let me begin with the bad. First,the server was very forgetful and slow. I would understand if it was a busy day but we were only one of 3 parties there and the other parties were being taken care of by another server. I'm... More

Was taken here for my birthday. It started out great. Beautiful view, great ambiance, appetizers (pork spring rolls) and bread were delicious. Then it rained, which I was not the fault of the restaurant and beyond their control. But the indoor dining was crowded and muggy. Our service significantly declined. Food came VERY slowly. I ordered prime rib with Mac... More

My friends and I enjoyed a meal here, and as we were staying upstairs, decided to partake. The meal was wonderful on the whole with starter such as Parcha (Passion Fruit) Grouper Ceviche,and Tamarindo (Tamarind_tropical fruit) calamari. Both were fantastic. Mains such as the Churrasco (skirt steak) best eaten rare to medium were sabroso (tasty), and fish such as mahi... More

We were in San Juan for the day and booked a day trip to Pamela's and was pleasantly surprised. Pamela's is a restaurant on Ocean Park beach that has some really good food and a nice quiet location. The staff was very friendly and could not of ask for more. The beach was nice and clean and quiet. We will... More

Four of us had a table on the beach, had a great meal, sangria, dessert, and it doesn't get better than this! We would recommend Pamela's to anyone who is looking to have a great night and the prices are quite reasonable.

Sat on the beach with toes in the sand eating a wonderful steak, drinking a mojito and ending the night with fried cheesecake. Delicious!
