“2 for 1 Mojitos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed almost a week in San Juan. Punto del Vista was the best. Shrimp and Garlic Mofongo was the best thing we had, Baha fish tacos were also great. Jorgito and the rest of the staff were fun and friendly and kept the 2 for 1 mojitos coming. Not just the best food, drinks, and service, but also the best value. The only regret we have is not finding them sooner. We went on the second to last night of our stay... and again the next day.

“Great Local Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We went to Punto de Vista because of the good ratings on TripAdvisor. Though the place is relatively small and isn't fancy, the food was very good. Lots of good Puerto Rican dishes on the menu. The steak mofongo with garlic is delicious! I expect the other mofongos are good too, and there are several choices for you. Appetizers and drinks were also good.

If you are going to San Juan, and Old San Juan specifically, you should make it a point to visit this restaurant.

“I thought abuela was in the back cooking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We spent the evening looking for this place and couldn't find it. Once we located it the next day it was like finding a hidden treasure. We were greeted by the bartender and given the special of the day which was the mojitos. Between my wife and myself we tried them all and were not disappointed. The menu selection was just enough variety so we ordered carne frita con arroz y habechuelas and my wife ordered nachos (could of fed at least three people). The taste of the food was like that if your grandmother's cooking I asked the bartender if my grandmother was in the back cooking because it was so delicious. As soon as I knew it he had pulled the chef out I the back and asked "is your grandmother this short?" We had a great time with the staff and the food was great. A definitely place to go back to

“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We loved the amazing food and the staff is so friendly and welcoming! Not expensive at all and right in Old San Juan. Our group repeatedly went back in our four day visit. It is easy to find right near the main bus terminal and accessible by taxi, bus or trolley. The fish tacos, skirt steak and mofongo were excellent. Great selection of beers and also is a sports bar. We ate outside with a view of the harbor and pier. The staff was very attentive, fun, warm and so friendly. Only ten minutes from most hotels and the airport. The staff speaks Spanish and English.
