My family and I where hungry, so we stop to eat here. My sister order the mofongo with octopus, it was horrible cause the octopus was from the can and not fresh. The only thing in here good was the mofongo with chicken.

We stopped by around 1 p.m. for lunch on a Wednesday and we were the only people there. The decor was dated and the ambiance lacking. We were disappointed because this is on a beautiful bay near the Arecibo LIghthouse area. The restaurant smelled musty like bad cleanser. That said - our food was delicious. We tried the snapper and... More

Hello Susan, Thank for your visit. As you noticed our location is very secluded far from main road. Locals came during evening after work since is not very convenience for a one hour lunch break during weekdays. We take proud of our cleaning and maybe what you noticed was the Freshly catch Lobsters from the tank that have a particular... More

I stop there with my father for a quick lunch, he had a "asopao" and I had two different appetizers; fried calamari and fish fingers. Everything was good, but not excellent. The restaurant is ok, but not a destination place.

We had fettuccine with shrimp, fish fingers as appetizers and tostones. We paid USD 50 all in for two adults and 9 year old. 4 groups of... More

I felt like taking the one hour drive back and telling the tour guide that gave us the recommendation to stop sending people there. My wife and are foodies and we try to see the best in every restuarant we eat at. But this place was just a mess. Ambience: it has none. The place has a very strong chemical... More
