What a great place to eat---on the sand by the sea!!! This place is not in the touristy area but it is worth walking to. It is very peaceful and great views of the water. It is a little pricey but well worth it.

My wife and I went on a honeymoon cruise in the Caribbean and ate at Pamela's before the cruise, friends of ours (who are from there) recommended it. It was delicious and so relaxing. I had a whole red snapper deep fried. We will be back!

Had lunch at Pamela's this week. Sat outside and watched the waves roll in. Luckily I was in a mellow mood, since I only got one of the three things I ordered. Luckily it was the whole snapper, which was delicious, and they quickly brought me my drink. Never got the tostones, but I didn't get charged for them either.... More

We ate at Pamela's on the last night of our vacation in San Juan. There were few people dining so service was very good. It is rather pricey but we shared the whole red snapper. The fish was not as big as we have had at other places but was nicely done and the presentation was pleasing. we had a... More

We had lunch at Pamela's today and enjoyed sitting outside in the shade with our feet in the sand while watching all the activity on the beach. The lamb chops and red snapper were truly delicious and the mojitos were refreshing (and not watered down). The setting is beautiful--you can watch the goings on of Ocean Park Beach from a... More

We chose Pamela's as our last meal in PR thinking it would be memorable given the location (tables literally on the beach) and decent reviews on here and Yelp. Well, it was memorable for sure, but not in a good way unfortunately. The restaurant itself is nice enough inside and outside is nice too. Obviously dining on the beach is... More

Excellent food, drinks, and beach setting. I would recommend this hands down. I have never been much of a fish person, I ordered a fish dish and loved it, and along with our appetizer. I will be vacationing and eating here again for sure.

I had a very good piña colada and chicken dish with the homemade risotto. My boyfriend had a pork dish. As a entree we had a mixed plate. We liked the food, but due to rain showers we had to switch to indoor area which isn't so comfortable. The food is good, wasn't brilliant for its price. But if the... More
