The good: Excellent food!!! Great flavor , well prepared and well presented.. Meats are fresh, specially the seafood.. This is a restaurant that will actually give you what you asked for: if asked for grouper you will get grouper, if asked for snapper, that's what you will get.. conch is well cooked, not gummy.. and good selection to choose from.....

Delicious flavors. Fresh seafood. Menu for kids - e.g. wings and fries Although some items are store bought, e.g. fish sticks. Liked the cod fish, shrimps, lobster.

We travel from Arecibo on a family road trip and decided to go there, food was great, ambiance was good. Place was pack, waited over an hour to be able to enter. The smaller the group the faster you get a table, we were 7 people. I would recommended if you are not in a rush. But over all we... More

I am not a negative person, so this is difficult for me; but my purpose for taking the time to review and provide pictures of my experience is for the traveler, not the establishment. We have been to this restaurant more than a few times, but less than 10, and thought that we had found a place that consistently provided... More

The view on the deck with the waves crashing is awesome. Naguabo with the water front walk and some dozen Cantinas is nice to take... More

For some reason when ever we go to this restaurant and sit on their balcony there is no breeze and its very hot, however you can't beat the view. The food is very good, the drinks are strong and the service is good. Expect to wait a while for your food as its all made fresh. I suggest going on... More
