We come here because we want local seafood. The wait was ridiculous and the food was low quality. I ordered a whole lobster (charged by pound) and was so so, they fill part of my lobster with “mofongo” (that I don’t ordered) that was uncooked and I think that they remove some of my lobster to cook other plate that...

I stopped in with my girl friend to have a some beers and hopefully a nice meal. The beers were nice and ice cold. We ordered a lobster turnover which was not the best but it was still edible. We also ordered some fish nuggets and it turned out that the it wasn't the freshest fish the batter did not... More

We stopped in for a beer and a snack one midweek early afternoon with no expectations for fast service or good food. All we wanted were a few cold ones and to enjoy the view and the breeze on a hot, sunny day. The appetizers were standard fare and yes, the service was slow, but who cares? The beers arrive,...

The food was amazing, the service was not that bad and I love the view. Best sea restaurant in Salinas and the price is not bad at all.

If you are on the south coast of Puerto Rico near Ponce take a slight detour to the small seaside town of Salinas and look for this restaurant right on the water. Must try the stuffed tostones with seafood, crabs or lobster. This is an open air restaurant that gets packed on the weekends. Schools of tarpon swim freely near... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant at the beginning of October 2012, while on vacation in San Juan. The food, drinks and service were excellent. Try the red snapper fish with sauce and onions. It is delicious!
