Would visit again

I had the lobster with shrimp and it was good. My wife had the snapper filled with lobster, also good. Enjoyed their piña colada and tres leches dessert. Beautiful view just to chill and let time go bye.

The view out of this restaurant is amazing, definitely worthwhile. The food is ok but I found it a bit pricey, service is not bad either. The one challenge is parking.

My parents used to take us here while growing up in Ponce. I was visiting Ponce and dined here with my kids and other family after many, many years. La Monserrate is still a great place to eat. The views are spectacular. The food is still great. Had a "mariscada" which was excellent. It sure brought memories to return. Only... More

When we are in the Ponce area we stop here for their seafood empanadas. The mariscada ones are tops and a good deal for $4. Two empanadas and a beer make a great lunch. Sorullitos are good too. Tonightwe lingered and after the empanadas we ordered dinner. Salad was plain, just OK. tostones were not crunchy or flavorful and were... More

La Monserrate was recommended to us by a regular visitor to Ponce we met at our hotel. Great recommendation. The place isn't fancy, but has great views, and the whole Red Snapper was absolutely fantastic.

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
