“Great food, friendly staff, great view, can't go wrong.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

They have food for everybody, including picky kids. Great view of Jobo's beach and sunset. If you don't see something Liz will suggest something that will be right on. Bar drinks were great. This was second time we visited and will be back on our next trip to Puerto Rico.

“Vastly improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

It looks like the bad reviews had an effect, the service, food, and drinks were great. You must admit that the location is the best, so give the place a break, it ain't the Waldorf. Good band, good food, good drinks, what more do you want.

“Good food, slow kitchen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

A group of 7 arrived at 5:35 andreceived appetizers close to 6:45. The food was fantastic (various types of mofongo, creole shrimp, lots of rice and beans). The servers were amazing but the food took quite a long time and put a damper on our visit. Total for two people (2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 drink and 1 dessert- a coconut flan to die for!) was $96.

This restaurant boasts a view that will be tough to beat. If you have some time to spare and do not mind a wait, this would be a good choice.

“A lovely experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We ate outside at the bar because seriously, you're going to sit inside at this place? With a view like that? That would be crazy. The food was fine, but the service and the view was wonderful. We had two servers helping us and both were incredibly helpful and nice. But you go to this place for the view, for sure. Go during the the late afternoon and watch the sunset. You won't regret it.
