Perhaps it gets its rep from Ponce's higher class who visits. The service is very good, the food is nice but there may be better choices if you are looking for a seaside restaurant in the Caribbean.

The menu was limited but more than adequate, and I choose the Bar-B-Q buffet served the in the outer dining plaza, which I was allowed to bring inside to dine with my companion and... More

There was a wait to get in (even with reservations) but they actually had plenty of seating inside. But now I understand why - they try to keep people waiting at the door because the food takes a while to prepare. Luckily, we devoured an entire loaf of bread and a $4 per shrimp appetizer (actually very tasty). All in... More

As I always eat in restaurants this one was actually very good. I had the beef Wellington (Christmas menu) a d it was cooked perfectly. This is a great place to eat at the Hilton if you want something different than pizza and burgers.

We loved everything. I had the filet mignont, the others had the salmon and pasta w/ shrimp. For 3 entrees, 1/2 bottle of wine, 1 beer, 1 mojita and 1 dessert $150.00

It has become a tradition that we celebrate my daughter's birthday every year when we visit Mom....we take the entire family.....we have never had a bad meal there...it is sort of Puerto Rican Fusion. It is also a beautiful restaurant and the service is good. One of my favorites in the... More

They have specials, and everything is modern and upscale. I have had the lobster special, and steaks. Both were good, but the Lobster was outstanding.

This was the fancy restaurant at our hotel. It seemed like it would be a great date spot, and it was the only place to get food indoors. There were still mosquito's biting us indoors. My fish didn't taste fresh and was extremely salty. My boyfriends piece of meat deflated upon cutting into it. Next time I would just save... More
