Beautiful location, good food, confusing menu setup

This place is legit. Right on the ocean with huge surfing waves crashing down, perfect for a sunset meal. The waitress, Jennifer (who was fabulous) brought out an enormous tray with the catch of the day. You get to choose the fish you want and they cooked it right up. My husband is not much of... read more

The views are spectacular as the waves roll in with the surfers. The food is excellent and the service staff helpful and professional. We highly recommend this restaurant for the views and atmosphere.

Amazing views of the ocean, great food. Their prime rib is superb as well as their sirloin. They sometimes have guitar music. I am not a fan of their desserts though.

We picked this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews. We went for lunch and all had the Dorado. It was delicious. I ordered some sort of caribbean mash as a side dish and I didn't like it. The waitress was so kind and replaced it with potatoes which were delicious. Our waitress was super smiley and quite attentive. We waited more... More

We all went for lunch, seven adults. We all found plenty of choices. The octopus was the freshest on the island. The food was all great. Recommend doing the two tapas plates if you want a good variety. One was land, one was sea. It was a great way to spend a few hours in the afternoon.

Took a drive from Dorado to Arecibo today. Stopped by Salitre on recommendation of my resort. Great place to stop and have a drink or meal while enjoying the ocean view. We had drinks and appetizers. Calmari was excellent as was the white Sangria. Service was great. Fresh seafood was available. Prices on the high side. Worth a stop just... More

Lunch today at Salitre was terrific. Server Krystal was friendly and efficient, while the sea, sky and temperatures were perfect. Tried the carmelized brussel sprouts this time. Even if you're not a big brussel sprout fan,you'll probably like these - soy, spice, delicious. Another reason we keep coming back!

My wife and I were traveling east down the coast after a day on the beach and came across this little gem of a restaurant. The restaurant was a good combination of local food with an incredible ocean view. You are literally eating 50 feet from the ocean. The cocktails were delicious and the food was very good. I would...
