We ate here at night, so we couldn't enjoy the beautiful view, but we still enjoyed the fresh air and calming sounds of the waves breaking. The food was good, not exceptional, but great for a reasonably priced beach front restaurant. We would recommend eating here and we'll happily return.

I'm torn with this review, so I'm gonna break it down: Pros: AWESOME deck and view of the ocean, good food and drinks. Cons: staff is a bit inattentive, food and drinks are flipping expensive. The food was overall good -- I got the skewers and the shrimp wasn't bad but the steak was cooked to perfection, as was the... More

We walked into the Oceanfront, a family of five, and very pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, service, and food. Carlos, our server, was helpful and pleasant. One of our fond memories from a great trip

We decided to sit outside to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean while enjoying nice cold drinks from the outside bar. Our bar tender was excellent. The food took a while but it was worth the wait. We ordered seafood and pollo mofongos,... More

I have been to this restaurant for over 10 years and the food was always great. The service has always been very good with an attentive staff and a beautiful view of Jobos beach.

I think it was the owner who was smoking in the bar and restaurant cigarette smoke is felt throughout the restaurant. The quality of the food very good. The only bad thing was that the 3 courses including forgot my 6... More

The food was good and fresh, the seafood soup was delicious. I didn't like the birds flying all around but it couldn't helped as the restaurant is open to the outdoors. Think of it like a giant gazebo with no doors or windows.

Wonderful and friendliest restruant! Music was lively and the waitress Liz was so helpful and a great assets to this restruant. The food was delicious and prepared in a special way. I had the ceviche which was probably my best and favorite food here. The lobster was fresh and the vegetable seafood soup was amazing .
