My suggestion, don't go. Food took one hour to come and when it did, it was not vertu good at all. All the food tasted like it was frozen. Our 50$ filet with lobster was grossly well done when asked for medium rare. He then brings another out and it is hardly cooked at all. Needless to say the chef... More

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide in Castillo Serralles and by other trip advisor guests. We had a horrible experience. We were greeted by the most sour faced woman. She directed us to the back deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The color of the water made me feel like I was back home in New England. The prices... More

This place is a reason to return to Ponce. It is out of town, and right on the water with a great view and a nice breeze. I had the Mahi-Mahi with Creole sauce, and it may have been the best fish I have ever eaten! It is worth the trip. Everyone in our group had a great time here.

We stopped in for lunch while touring in Ponce, and had an excellent meal. The setting is fantastic - covered deck over the sea. The menu featured many fresh fish and seafood dishes. I choose the octopus salad which was delightfully seasoned and was a generous portion of succulent, tender octopus. My husband chose the mixed seafood. The combination of... More

We stopped at this restaurant completely by chance as we were driving by and decided to finally eat something. It was the best decision ever. I had the best grilled, fresh fish since Lebanon (where we also ate at a seaside restaurant). The place is not fancy, but it is located right at the seaside and this is what you... More

I've been to this place twice now and they have been consistently impeccable. Menu is wide and every item is available and fresh. Service is always friendly and thorough. We have had lobster, seafood combinations, different side dishes, fish broth, fish turnovers and other appetizers. Ambiance is nice and welcoming. Prices are average-good for the kind of menu they serve.... More

This seaside restaurant has an excellent view from the terrace. The food is very good. We had fried snapper, lobster stuffed snapper filet and shrimp pasta with alfredo sauce. Everything was well presented and tasty. The fried fish turnovers we had as appetizer were overfried, almost burnt. Took them 20 mins to take our order and 65 min for our... More

Fried pork chops were good, co-workers red snapper with creole sauce very good, rice and beans excellent. Very relaxing to sit above the water and have an enjoyable dinner. I've heard the saying during my trips to PR, "island time". So don't be in a rush if you eat here, not excessive but slow compared to mega chain restaurants.

As we were getting out of the car, we saw a young man walking in with his snorking mask and flippers and carrying a plastic bag with three just caught octupus which he sells to the restaurant. Can it get any fresher than that? I had the octupus and conch salad, and my husband and grandson had a mariscada in... More
