Good food - Great view

The view from the restaurant is fantastic and parking is right in front. The food was good and service was excellent. I had the tuna steak which was cooked perfectly. It was a little salty for my tastes but it was still good. My wife had the ribs and thought they were also good. We didn't stay... read more

A group of us stopped here for lunch. The drinks came out fast but the food took at least an hour to come out. Some of it was undercooked and had to be sent back to the kitchen. The food that was cooked was pretty good (I had a burger). Nice view of the ocean while we waited tho.

We came here for happy hour with a large group of family in town for a wedding and it was the perfect location! Service was quick and attentive, they had all the usual tropical drinks along with beer and liquor. We ordered appetizers, the fried cheese wasn't that great, but the risotto balls, wings, and fish tacos were delicious. You... More

We ate here on Good Friday which would explain why it was so busy. Because of this the food took almost 1 1/2 hours to get to our table. We were informed of this and were willing to wait but the wait wasn't worth it. The only food item in our party of 5 that was good was the Seafood... More

The hotel attached to the restaurant was a great value and the churrasco I served at the restaurant was the best I have ever had. I wish I would have asked how the sauce was made. The location is great and staff was friendly.

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!
