“loved the food and the mojitos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We were only in San Juan for a day - cruise port - and wanted to find a great, local, authentic meal.....we were delighted to find Punto de Vista! It's close to the port, which caused a little concern, we thought maybe it would be too "touristy" but we saw plenty of locals enjoying food and drinks on the patio so we went for it. We're glad we did. The 2 for 1 mojitos were great - nicely made and tasty. The food was delicious - my husband had pork mofongo and loved it; I had fish tacos and loved them, and the yucca frites were awesome! The service was good - not overly attentive but competent. The restaurant isn't very big and maybe there isn't a lot of ambience - unless sitting on the patio enjoying the warmth, sunshine, and a nice breeze is your idea of ambience - like it is ours - then there's plenty of it! And it's a great people-watching spot as well. We would definitely go back.

“Great lunch ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

First lunch in Puerto Rico and we were very impressed! The fish and steak tacos were great. We recommend the rice and beans as a side. The Bacardi Mojitos were very refreshing. Great food and great service. Overall a great experience!

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

One word, ok 2 words...Shrimp Mofungo Had a taco app that was great along side the two for one mojitos. Then the garlic shrimp Mofungo which was excellent. Don't let the look of this place throw you off as the food is great. We were told they are moving to a nicer location in the near future.
The staff we warm, friendly And we had some laughs. Well worth the visit and very reasonably priced.

“Disappointing. ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Stayed in line for two hours. Was battling pigeons that kept us engaged. Nothing great about mofungo or mojitos as they claimed. Lousy ambience.

Overrated. Don't waste time waiting for this one. There are plenty others that are much better in the area.

“Excellent Mofongo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The mofongo here is really good, we ordered steak and shrimp mofongo, the mofongo is really good with great source in it. it is the best mofongo I had in San Juan.
However, The service here is just soso, the waiter only show up when we order and finished. Maybe it's because there is too many people here
