sipping drinks overlooking the ocean

Spent part of our first night in Isabela on the deck listening to the ocean. Friendly spot with a live music, great way to start our vacation.

Outstanding food and service! Great view of the ocean - best MOFONGO ever made. The chef even gave us the recipe to try it ourselves. Unbelievable atmosphere, view, and amazing food! Will definitely stop again next time we're in Puerto Rico.

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend last week on a road trip and we both fell in love with the view and their food! The steak and the ceviche were simply amazing and the ambience goes perfect with the vibe of the beach view right next to you, i recommend it!

This restaurant is a relaxed place in a relaxed setting but has really good food. Try the ceviche and the mofongo. Both stellar.

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.

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
