Stopped for the views on our way back fromArecibo to Rincon. Looks out at Jobo beach and surfers to the right. Perfect spot for a stop and with a nice breeze.

I also ordered the skirt steak empanadas recommended on trip advisor but I was bummed that they ran out of their ricotta sauce! For the entree,my husband chose the shrimp wrapped in bacon. Sooo good!!! The cocktail... More

We ate here for dinner on our last night in PR. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp which was good--not over the top, but still very good. We sat on the beach deck and could hear the ocean the whole time. They do not have a kids menu, so be prepared to pay $8 for chicken nuggets and fries for... More
