Pito's provides a very nice menu - food is well prepared and tasty. Service is very friendly. Best of all, you sit on a balcony overlooking the Caribbean - especially nice at sunset.

Pito's is in a grouping of a few restaurants a short drive from the Hilton Resort in Ponce, where we were staying on the second leg of our trip to PR. It was recommended by other guests at the hotel and I drove down one afternoon to check it out. The outside is unassuming, but the view from the dining... More

After a 3 hour visit in the downtown of Ponce, we came to this restaurant hungry and tired, the atmosphere is comfortable, service was helpful and friendly, we were recommended Prawns, Red Snappers and Calamari, everything was tasteful and the price was reasonable, would recommend it to all visitors!

Business colleagues have recommended Pito's several times, and we finaly made the trip. We had great service (mid-week dining), and the food (local catch's) just made us want to try more. I felt price was commensurate with quality (very good) and location (again...very good). Seems like a great place for just about anybody looking for a great dining experience. I... More

We went to Pito's based of the recommendation of the hotel. In this instance they were wrong. When we first walked in it was very confusing.. no one talked to us and there wasn't a spot that screamed it was the stand or even the front of the restaurant. Finally we just went on the patio and sat ourselves. Walking... More

Very very slow service. Took forever to serve us drinks and dinner. Very nice sit out on the back deck. I got the red snapper stuffed with shrimp and it was not very good.

We stopped for lunch on the way from San Juan to Guanica. Got a table overlooking the sea, such a nice treat. Wait staff was perfect! I ordered tostones to start with - the sauce to dip them in was wonderful. I also ordered a small bowl of seafood soup which was full of goodies-so tasty! The seafood mofongo is... More

Pito's is on the western outskirts of Ponce about 2 miles past the exit to the Holiday Inn and Casino. The front desk clerk recommended it and we were not disappointed. A bit hard to get to, since Hwy 2 is 4 lanes and you have to make a U-turn to get there. Believe me, it is difficult to get... More

Glad that we went out of our way to get to Pito's. It is approximately 7 miles further than the downtown area right on the ocean but worth every bit of the extra miles. Fantastic views, right on the ocean, beautiful breezes while dining on the outdoor patio. We shared oysters Rockefeller (order specified 5) but when we indicated we... More
