Beautiful surroundings, the best view in the area. Highly recommended for the seafood. We had the stuffed snapper, it was the whole fish, beautifully prepared and served. The staff was helpful and enthusiastic. There was a live vocalist who had sung with Tito Puente in years past. It really made the visit feel like "real Puerto Rico". Highly recommend!

We got there in time for the sunset and were treated to a moonrise and loved the view of the coast. Three of us also had very good meals but the service was terrible. Ended up being there almost 2 hours. It was a Saturday night and there was no crowd so we couldn't understand the problem.

View is amazing! That's all. Food is subpar. Prices are way too high for what you actually get. Waiters are nice but food takes ages to get to your table. I will not recommend this place to anyone.

First time in Puerto Rico, came here at the recommendation of another resort goer and was not disappointed! The view is something to see that pictures don't do justice. It's such a neat restaurant. Pineapple rice with chicken and filet mignon were quite good!

Predominantly seafood on the menu. Open air restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating at the top of the hill. Beautiful views of the Rio Grande resorts down below. We stayed at the Wyndam and it was only about 5-10 minute drive to get there. I had the pineapple fried rice with chicken and my friend had a snapper dish. Be... More

My hubby and I were in Puerto Rico for the first time and the hotel staff suggested this restaurant. It was spectacular but what made the evening even better was the amazing service we got from the waiter Angelo. He was so attentive and suggested the Red Snapper which is the best meal my hubby has every had out. Thanks... More

Our third trip to this fun restaurant. My husband had the mofungo and I had the pork ribs, yummy! Lovely views from the terrace, warm and friendly service. And free shuttle service from our nearby hotel. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our waiter was so nice! He really helped us pick out some good food. The view from the cafe was amazing. (Puerto Rico is the prettiest island.) However, it was almost $100 for both of us to eat there, and we shared a dish. I liked it, I just didn't like it that much for what it costed.

We went here 8 years ago on our honeymoon. We remembered it for its view. This time the food with the view and the friendliness of the staff definitely made it the right choice to go away from Rio Mar to. The restaurant provides free shuttle from many of the local hotels. While the ride can be exciting you arrive... More

You should wear a gas mask as you enter the restaurant; heavy smoke like inside a chimney. The place is dirty, the owner ( a chubby lady) smells really bad; she is smoking one cigarette after the other. She touched my food twice, I know she didn't wash her hands... The food was cold and has plain taste. For the... More
