I thought that the food was too expensive for what we got. The soup was too salty for my mom, it was fine for me. My shrimp wasn't that big, but average. My dads fish was average. His plate was expensive though. The view is pretty and it is nice to sit outside.

Pito's is one of my favorite restaurants in Puerto Rico -- the food and view are worth the trip from San Juan (there are tons of things to do, places to see, restaurants and lodging in Ponce). I find the food to be exquisite each time we visit. Today's lunch special was grilled salmon topped with fresh grilled shrimp with... More

Our tour guide recommended this place if we wanted seafood. He did say it was close to Ponce but it did take a leisurely drive of 15 minutes to get there, but it was well worth it. There was a short wait as we were a party of 8 with no reservations. My wife and I split the seafood platter... More

This restaurant is right on a busy highway, but right on the water. The food was amazing. The soups were fabulous, but the grouper was to die for

Pitts came as a recommendation from the car rental deal. When we travel we love to experience the locals favorites. A leisurely drive from San Juan along some beautiful views, as well as small cities. The view from the restaurant is fantastic with waves crashing into the sea wall. The food was well presented and flavorful. Our server was attentive... More

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. The out door dining experience above the caribean is beautiful. The food and service are 1st class. If you are in the Ponce area, definitely dine here. I would suggest lunch with the caribean view. Located just west of Ponce on calle 2.

Its specialty is fresh seafood in a very casual location. Good service, but most important in a clear day you can experience one of the most beautiful sunsets from your table. Great for photographers.

We started with strawberry mojitos and a beer. Had a great day at the beach in Playa Santa (Guanica) and we were looking for a great seafood. We saw the reviews and Pito's was our choice. Mofongo was great, specially with the mojo caribeño sauce. Seafood salad was fresh and delicious. Coconut flan was ok but not the best.
