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

Very good atmosphere, great service, a little expensive, food is very delicious. Beautiful ocean view. Few minutes from Jobos beach and Pozo de Jacinto (amazing scenery!).

Went for dinner and was looking forward to a great meal after reading the reviews and Was very disappointed. I ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp which sounded delicious but got the driest shrimp I think I ever had. It seemed over cooked or cooked earlier and reheated, not good either way. 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.

We were there on a Monday night and it wasn't crowded so the service was pretty fast. I thought the food was excellent especially the fish cakes and the empanadas. The waiter was very efficient and friendly. This felt like an authentic PR restaurant.

Each of us dining ordered different plates. They ranged from 10-30 dollars. It took over 1 hour for our food to be brought out to us. The food was barely warm. It tasted horrible. 8 dollars for a rum and coke is outrageous given the size. When we introduced the poor experience to our server she was very rude. I... More

We´re very sorry to hear that, we also are surprised because our rum & coke doesn´t cost $8 it costs 6.50 with taxes included! Our menu doesn´t have anything with $30 Perhaps you mistake us with another restaurant, the one you really went? More

What an awesome place. We stayed about a half mile down the beach from Ocean front and this was by far our families favorite place to eat and hang out. We had a full meal here on Wednesday evening and ended up going back for appetizers and drinks the next two nights because we loved it so much. The seafood... More
