Great authentic food right by the beach!

This place was recommended by our hotel in San Juan- the food was fresh and tasty. Red snapper was fired only so we did the grouper and Mahi- both really good. And the homemade coconut flan is great!

Atmosphere is casual and fun. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Menu had lots of options from appetizers to light fare to full entrees and included a kids menu. My daughter and I shared the stuffed pineapple (with rice and shrimp) it was definitely big enough for us to share and was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend getting it... More

Bad Services and tasteless food. As a puertorican is too bad that I can cook better than the restaurant. The quality of the food was below expectation. In addition, they got my wife's order wrong. Had to wait too long to get our drinks. Asked for sparkling water and was told they didn't have any. Asked for bottled water and... More

So we started with Queso Frito, now one of our favorite Puerto Rican appetizers. My wife had the shrimp stuffed Grouper and I had the Pork Medallions. The shrimp stuffed grouper was smothered in a light cheese sauce, the pork medallions are stuffed with beef and wrapped in bacon. When you go to the Kioskos you expect to find low... More

We stopped here for our first meal in Liquillo. It was very pricey and we didn't receive near the friendly service that we later encountered elsewhere on the island.

We had numerous locals tell us to eat here. It's in the shacks at Luquillo Beach. Not sure if it was a comparison to the rest of the food at Luquillo, but the food was ok, and very expensive. Much better places to eat for less...

Excellent food, service and owned by a chef! Check it out. We came here because we saw the fresh lobsters...they were caught right off the island! Super fresh and delicious!

We ordered the steak mofongo and it was crazy delicious ! We also ordered mahi mahi and that was very very good too. On another occasion I ordered the shrimp mofongo but it had 4 shrimps , not enough for the cost of it. The prices are average. Free parking . The strip looks sketchy but we were reassured it...

Visit almost every year!! Love this place! The food was amazing. I visited this place several times over a period of eight years. I must warn you, don't park on the side of the road, make sure you park in a parking spot.

True this is the only Kiosko we tried, so we can't compare. Also, the number of stars would not be the same back home in NYC, where it would be about 2-1/2. But with the choice and what we had seen elsewhere, this seemed like a pretty good choice and experience. The traffic in and out is insane. Be ready... More
