Pretty good

We ordered fish with shrimp. The food was decent, but plates are nearly $30 a pop. The view out back is cool, but the parking up front is limited, and is literally off the shoulder of a highway with crazy drivers. We got lucky, and one of the staff helped us back out.

Great service, delicious Fresh seafood but best of all, the amazing view of the Caribbean Sea! The lobster was the best part of my meal and the asparagus, just delicious!

We had a fabulous dinner at Pito's on the deck overlooking the Caribbean Sea while the sun set and the stars came out, a beautiful way to enjoy their excellent seafood. We had Parrillada de Mariscos, Tostones Rellenos Langosta and Flan de Queso and coffee for dessert. The waiter was very helpful making this selection, which was excellent. The only... More

We had lunch at Pito's Restaurant on the return drive from Cabo Rojo to San Juan. Pito's is an outstanding restaurant with excellent food, service, atmosphere, and views. Everything was perfect. We will definitely go there again when we're in the area. Thanks Pito's for an enjoyable and memorable experience.

I did and enjoyed every last bite of the biggest pork chop I ever seen. We started our meal with the Octopus Cocktail Salad since we both love Octopus. For me, things just got better but my wife wasn't very fond of the Seafood Mofongo. After 3 or 4 days of a steady diet of carbs, it get hard to... More

Six of us ate here recently for dinner while staying in Ponce for several days. The restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide and we were interested in eating by the water. We found the setting to be quite lovely as we were out in the patio area with the waves of the Caribbean gently coming in right... More

We returned to this restaurant for the amazing views. The food is good, but the view is better. If you arrive before sunset you can get some great photos. We had very good service and enjoyed our mofongo and dessert as well.

Went to Pito's for lunch. Overall, the food was very good, and very well plated. The lobster empanadas were fabulous. Staff were very friendly. Beautiful views of the ocean. Parking is a bit tricky.

My visit was late afternoon. The food was presented well, fresh and excellent. I traveled alone and enjoyed the little birds. My view was a beautiful day of the sea, and comfortable in the shade of the trees. My table set level in the upper limbs of the surrounding trees. The service was good and staff was friendly. Would love... More

The incredible setting makes up for the slightly high prices. The food is also excellent. The whole snapper was slightly overcooked, but the mixes seafood salad and fish broth were spot on perfect. Nice chewy mofongo. A little hard to get to from Ponce, you must overshoot it and circle back. Worth it.
