Excellent dinner

Had the two pound lobster special with shrimp, octopus, clams. It was great! My wife had the skirt steak over pasta and that too was wonderful. Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced.

This is a casual family restaurant with medium prices. Seafood is fresh and meats are delicious. They have two separate areas for dinning and you don't need reservations. Grouper nuggets are really good.

El Capitan is a family restaurant offering good sea food especially the lobster that is apparently brought in on Thursday fresh. The fish is good,basically prepared as you desire. Some of the puertorrican side dishes are well prepared especially the arañitas and the mofongo. It's safe with security. The atmosphere is basic and clean. It's a place full of locals.

We went for the first time to El Capitán this week to celebrate my birthday. What a great way to begin the celebrations. The employees offered excellent and fast service. Everything we ordered was wonderful. We began with the Ceviche and Calamari rings, it was served very quickly. I had the catch of the day and it was splendid, it... More
