Excellent choice for a restaurant directly in the center of town. Must try their pupusas if you go here. Very reasonably priced mixed drinks compared to other restaurants of this quality in San Pedro.

Staff was very friendly. Pappusas (sp?) were absolutely delicious. Portions are LARGE and everything cooked perfectly. For us, we do not like super saucy dishes. Like many places on the island, the food can be covered in sauce. We asked for light sauce and they accommodated. The lobster burrito was so delicious. The kids devoured the pappusas and my husband... More

Last time some of our group were here Waraguma was on middle street but now we find it moved north to back street, just a block or so over from our hotel (Sunbreeze Suites). The seating is set up under a larger open air patio, well lighted at night (sun sets at 6:30pm) but no view to speak of. Floor... More

My wife and I ate here 3 days out of 5. Can't go wrong with the Lobster Burrito, we had it twice within 4 days. Also had the Lobster Ceviche and Grilled Lobster. Prices CANNOT be beat. Definitely plan on dining there again and you should too.

Visit the new location on Back Street (Angel Coral) for a airy, spacious lunch on a breezy Sunday morning. Less dust & noise than places to eat on Front street! Hubby had the Fish Burger w fresh red snapper. He also got coleslaw, rice & beans, guacamole & a spicy dipping sauce. I loved it ALL! I ordered the Fish... More

Afternoon or evening Waruguma's lobster burrito is a "must have" for any island visitor. Many offer, but none compares. The lobster is done perfectly (huge pieces), with a mix of rice and cabbage. Can share for a lunch, more than enough for a dinner. The papusa's are done on an open grill in front of the restaurant. The mixed variety... More

We had a great lunch at Waruguma that included the shrimp pupusas and a shared Tres Carnes burrito. We were bummed it wasn't lobster season, so I guess we'll just have to come back during that time! No wait, great service, and amazing food! Don't pass this place up!
