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.

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
