“A good local's restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We went out fishing with Capt. Hilly Boo of Freedom Tours and caught several Jack Crevalles, snapper, and lobster. He recommended we take our catch to this place saying it was one of his favorites in town. We could have had the same meals without providing our own fish but it added to the fun and enjoyment. The restaurant kept track of everything and we ate 4 meals (2 lunch & 2 dinners) using our fish and lobster.

My wife’s favorite was the snapper steamed in foil with green peppers, onions, and tomatoes. The lobster was outstanding both grilled and in a seafood soup. I saw several people having lobster burritos and everyone seemed to be very pleased with their order. They were enormous! The fresh fruit drinks were very good also.

Pupuseria Salvadoreno is located on one of the back streets in San Pedro a block or so off the main drag.

“Awsome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

This place was great. We ordered pupusas and they were delicious. These nice ladies make them right outside, so they are very fresh. Service was prompt and friendly. Don't expect much in the asthetics of the place, it's a place for locals, aside from that. A+.

“Great service and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Friendly people immediately upon entering. Very clean and great prices. Lobster burrito is huge when in season. Combination of Lobster, Shrimp and Conch Ceviche was enough for two people or more! We meant to go back for dinner for a Pupusa that they make right outside the restaurant or have served at your table but never made it back; see you next time.

“Excellent ceviche!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

We stopped here for lunch based on a recommendation of someone I met that shared my love of ceviche. I love the sampler at Wild Mangos but this woman said pupuseria's was better. I had to find out for myself...She was right! We ordered the mixed seafood ceviche and it was a traditional preparation with lime, tomato, onion, cilantro, etc...it was so fresh and delicious and filled with fresh lobster, shrimp, and conch and the portion was huge. We also tried a pupusa for the first time and enjoyed it along with their small chicken burrito. Everything was very good, the server was extremely friendly, the prices were cheap and the watermelon juice was refreshing on a hot afternoon. I am going back for more ceviche in April!

“Pupusas are great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

We just stopped here to get some pupusas to go. We chatted with the guys behind the bar and had drinks while we waited. Everyone was super nice and the pupusas were yummy.
