Awesome food, restrooms are pretty bad.

I visited this place at the end of Oct. 2014. I've been here before so I know how good their empanadillas are. I got me carrucho/conch and chapin/Trunkfish/boxfish, and tostones with Carne frita/fried pork for my mother. Of course I had a taste of that plate as well. All good! I ordered to go since... read more

We stopped for lunch on our way back home from Cabo Rojo. This is a pretty ride. In Joyuda there are many restaurants to choose from, but we had heard about this from some friends so we stopped here and we were not disappointed. The fish was fresh and tasty. The empanadillas were excellent. It was clean and we enjoyed... More

I used to frequent this place when I was a child with my family, I hadn't gone in years, I was expecting the see through tables with sand, shells and fish figures inside. I was staying in Cabo Rojo with my husband and we stopped by, found the place completely remodeled. We had cheese balls, fish balls, "empanadillas" and we... More

Great restaurant I don't think I can change it for another one in the area.No matter that we have to drive more than one hour to get there. We are from Camuy.

The best turnover in the West Coast of Puerto Rico if not in the hole Island. The Chapín (Conch Fish) you cant missed them . The fritters are exceptional and fresh. Very reasonable price for the food. Waiters are friendly and helpful. A must in Juyuda, Cabo Rojo

Went in with a group of 7 people. We saw the place opened and went in. We were sat down and the waiter gave each one of us a menu. After we looked at the menu we were wondering if they were still open. We asked out of curiosity and we were told it was closed. Then, why allow us... More

The food is good, they treat you promptly and the waiters are courteous. The prices are low and the service is great. Every time I go to Joyuda I stop here.
