This is Puerto Rican Food

We went to El Resuelve since was recommended by a local. It's not a fancy place, but is clean, is not expensive (eat 4 for $50) they have music and the quality and amount of food is excellent. If you are looking for Puerto Rican food this is the place.

Arrives looking for a local place to eat. The recommendation of the neighbors was positive and very good food. My favorite was fried snapper with arepas ... simply delicious!

We went to El Resuelve on our way to the beach. After reading the reviews of this place, I had high expectations. Everything we had was just ordinary in terms of quality and flavor. Both, the octopus and conch salad were cooked and served hot, which was a bit shocking and not what we were expecting. The octopus turnovers were... More

We have eaten here before but on this trip we would stop and get there pastelillos to take to the beach. We tried them all and all were very tasty. We will revisit on all our trips back to the island.

We were the only stateside people there when we went. The food was SO good, the music and dancing even better! Highly recommend the shrimp in garlic sauce.

El Resuelve is NOT a fancy restaurant - it is a small setting on the side of the road with parking in the back. A tin roof and canopy cover plastic chairs and tables scattered about.

No joke about it. This is serious Puerto Rican food and drink. Amazing value, great food, strong drinks. ZERO abnoxious tourists (except me) shrimp and garlic great, wings best my daughter has ever had. There is parking to the side and back much easier than the street.
