I dined at Monserrate twice while on a business trip to Puerto Rico and was very pleased both occasions. The Caribbean atmosphere is absolutely gorgeous since the deck is right above the sea and has stunning views of large tarpon feeding and swimming right on the coast under the deck! The wait staff was very friendly and offered knowledgeable menu... More

My first visit to Ponce, I did not do my research, I just went for it and ate here because we saw it driving down the highway and it was right on the water. We were literally the only people dining here this night. This gave me pause, but my hunger won, so we stayed. I'm glad we did because... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for the past 20 some years, ever since our daughters were small, ( in the 90's). We just visited Puerto Rico and took my dad and his wife for lunch on a Sunday. Sitting outdoors, on the terrace, enjoying the cool breeze,looking out to the sea, and down to the... More

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
