One server for seven tables is not the prettiest site if you are hungry. Ordered appetizer(pastelillos de pescado) and was told 30 minutes later they were out. Ordered something else and waited some more. Finally was told they were out of sauce for entree (chillo a la criolla). Settled for mojo isleño. Dish was underwhelming. After complaint I was informed... More

With SO many restaurants in the island I find little reason to drive hours for a meal in PR. Everyone that offers "criollo cooking" will have the mofongo, the octopus salad, the shrimp and the lobster. A place like Ladi's happens to be on the water so if you are into the view you are OK. But I agree with... More

This is lobster in a A very succulent tomato and onion based sauce. With Mofongo on the side it was delicious. Service was a little slow but still very descent.

The restaurant is under new administration and they are remodeling the place. They have built very nice terraces by the beachfront. Great place for beers, local drinks and the original mojo isleno sauce for all seafood which I highly recommend. When you sit at the terrace you can feel a nice breeze. Must remember most every place operates on island... More

This place has a view to die for!!! The Caribbbean Sea, so calm and quiet. You can see people enjoying the day with kayaks and small boats. We were lucky to enjoy the sunsent here and it was lovely. The food, on the other hand, is average. We ordered fish nuggets (mero) and they were ok. The empanadillas (turnovers) were... More

The owner I think came to our table and helped us order. I thought this was going to be good. Then it went down hill. After 45 min the meal arrived. We ordered mafungo as a side we got plantains. The waitress took them back. My fish stew was so salty and oily it was hard to eat it. My... More

I think its the economic slowdown. It seems that they have laid off a lot of staff due to lack of business. The food is still good and good portions, but the service staff is non existent. Just getting a glass of water is an effort.

There is a great view, unfortunatelly the sevice was so bad that the eating out experiece was a disaster. We had to look for a seat ouselves, wait so long for a waiter that we cosider a couple of times to leave, and the food....so and so. In summary, its a nice place, run like a fast food with prices...

Amazing food, fresh seafood, fish broth with a great taste, very nice service and, best of all, the great view! Get there about an hour before sunset and you'll witness one of the best! Will be back there soon.

The restaurant has definitely a beautiful view. However, I believe we were misled while waiting to take a trip in La Paseadora (about a 30 min trip around the bay and mangroves). Juan, the owner of both the restaurant and the Paseadora, told us (we were a group of about 15) to wait in the restaurant for the boat, which... More
