Pretty good food, but we got there too late to enjoy the view. The service staff was slow, but they had a balladeer singing with his guitar, wandering by the tables. The food was pretty good with a heavy Puerto Rican flavor. (Note: The women's room lights weren't working . . . so be careful in there.)

Not impressed with service, beautiful place to go for a date with only drinks. Food is average for locals, short of staff, bartender tried to please everyone but it did not worked for me. On a Friday, local holiday, manager should have more staff at lunch at least.

Really nice spot to get some drinks and food during sunset. Sit at the bar, which is on a deck almost overhanging the water. You can order food and enjoy the views. We tried the homemade sangria, which was excellent. The empanada app was delicious, and the mufungo was decent. My wife ordered mahi mahi, which was terrible. The most... More

Went here after a long day at the Jobos beach. The place have a nice bar in front of the shore with a perfect view of Jobos beach. The food and attention was great. You can eat a nice elegant meal, as easy as you can have a hamburger with a great quality. I had a burger and it was... More

Good atmosphere, we visited the restaurant on the night of the 4th of July, the attention was excellent; they give you the choice to eat outside with oceanview or inside the restaurant. The food presentation was really good and taste excellent! At the bar outside they had live music with a local rock band and inside one of the waiters... More

We ate outside, early dinner, near bar. As became later in day a lot of locals arrived who obviously usually congregate here at day's end. Made the place fun though noisy. There is an indoor restaurant as well which has same kitchen and might be less casual and more private with same great view. Food was good although I have... More

My husband had he skirt steak which we asked... More

Stop there for lunch coming from the beach. I wasn't expecting to have such a nice lunch with a sophisticated touch while still on my swimming trousers. Nice ceviche and mofongo as well.
