We found the roadside view to be average in appearance, yet ventured in. What a wonderful surprise, the staff, the menu, the view and the prices made us feel as if we had been there a hundred times. La Bella is a gracious hostess. English/Spanish are equal here with no hassle. Senyora La Bella provides a menu of wonderfulness.

Great outdoor spot. Food was average. We both got the fish. Service was slow but it was a very busy Saturday night. Live music made for a good time.

This restaurant is located in a beautiful spot by the water. The staff is friendly and the drinks are cheap. We got the garlic grouper which was excellent and the Mahi Mahi nuggets. I would not recommend the nuggets. The beers were 2.50 and Piña Colada's were 5.00. Check it out.

The hostess was very accommodating. We went in the evening for tapas & drinks ( was not terribly crowded). We did not go for the view. We ordered 4 things. The spicy sausage, pastry filled with peas & fried fish & chicken pieces. Our drinks were simple: Sprites (3) & 2 Pina Coladas. The drinks took awhile. The drinks arrived... More

On our first visit we ordered an appetizer and dinner. We were very pleased with the food but the service was very slow. We came back a few days later before sundown for drinks and tapas and the service was much quicker. The location is beautiful as there's balcony seating that looks out on the ocean.

The only positive about this place is the view. If you're hungry and expecting good service this is not the place. We ordered appetizers and drinks. After a 45 minute wait the food was cold and bland. If you're a local you'll automatically know that the food is over priced. If you're a tourist, this is not what our local... More

The location is very nice, right on the water. We sat down and ordered cocktails which were decent, but took at least 20 minutes to reach the table on a relatively slow night. Ordered chorizo con vino for an app and then mofongo stuffed with shrimp. The chorizo arrived cold, and tasted like they'd been sitting there a year. Being... More

The location is second to none, right on the water at the marina. Watching boats roll in as you are having a drink or something to eat. Food was good, drinks were good, service friendly and fast. What we liked most was the atmosphere of the place, lively, with a nice mix of locals and tourists. We stayed right across... More
