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

Wow! We were the couple sitting next to "sedationjax". We heard them arguing while we were waiting for our food (45 minutes) and we heard them say to the waiter that they were going to post a bad review on Tripadvisor. To all fairness to the restaurant and the server, which was great, their review is not fare to what... More

The mofongo is bomb!! Good view of the point. Excellent service. Watch out for those loaded coronas!! You can check the surf from the bar and even maybe spot some whales. It was convenient to have the hotel right next door. It's a good place to meet some nice helpful people.
