Loved everything about this place.. Waiters were right on top of our every need. 1 waiter showed us a few comedy acts that kept us entertained... We will make a special trip to go back when we return.

Puerto Nuevo use to be the happening spot for lobster, tequila and beers in the 1970s through 1990s. However, the lobster have been nearly fished to extinction and you cannot get a large or even medium size lobster anymore. BEWARE! When you see the menu choices say: Large Lobster $29 USD; Medium $20 USD; or Small $15 USD. My husband... More

Puerto Nuevo II is an awesome place to visit when you're looking to feast on lobster. Been coming here for over twenty years. This restaurant also has other offerings for those not looking to have lobster feast. Their house lobster bisque is delish.

In front of the ocean. They do it right. You can expect to see the waves break and enjoy lobster with beans. Nothing better!

Puerto Nuevo lobster is a must! While the flavor is different from Atlantic lobster, the pairing with beans, rice and freshly made flour tortillas make a unique combination that is perfect for a warm summer day paired with a cold beer. A must!!!

It has been a few years now but they have the tastiest lobster I have ever had! Absolutely juicy, tender and full of flavor! That along with all their homemade sides you have a perfect meal! Just be prepared for a long line to get in. Cash only!
