This restaurant sits right by the Atlantic Ocean with a spectacular view of the sunset. The food is not that great.

Salitre specializes in seafood and Puerto Rican cuisine, the menu is extensive and varied. You can seat in or out, where you see and hear the ocean right in front of you. it can get humid, even in the shade as the ocean breezes were not coming up. Jennifer was our waitress , she was very sweet, efficient and nice.... More

But the food was average nothing to really make it special. The price is on the expensive side and if i return it would be for drinks and at... More

Seafood is fresh and high quality. The Pulpo a la Brasa (grilled octupus) was perfection: sweet, white and tender on the inside, caramelized on the outside with a hint of vinegar. I had it twice during my stay! The young women attending the restaurant are very accommodating without appearing forced or artificially cheery. They understand well the concept of customer... More

The setting is nice (on the beach) but the food is mediocre (to put it mildly). As long as you know what to expect, you'll enjoy yourself with the atmosphere and the cocktails. It's all a matter of expectations..

The Salitre Meson Costero is a restaurant that I saw a billboard advertisement in Arecibo. The advertisement said something about great seafood. Well the advertisement was correct. It was very much worth the extra 20 minute drive from the main highway into Arecibo. The wait staff were very pleasant and seated us quickly. The view was spectacular and the food... More

We were out driving and ran across this restaurant. The ambiance was nice and enjoyed sitting on the patio by the beach. The food was good and not just average. The service was friendly and would have been easier if I spoke fluent Spanish. I would go back no question.

I visited the restaurant with my niece, who is vegetarian. After almost one and a half hour wait, our plates arrived: a "mofongo" filled with frozen vegetables and Salmon montuno with a very, very dry mofongo. We paid $16.00 for the frozen vegetables and $22.00 for the untaste salmon, $3.50 for a cup of coffee. Elizabeth, the waitress tried very... More

Terrific lunch seaside. Salitre has a new menu since our last visit, keeping lot of the old items, but with some interesting new ones. The chorizo, octopus, and garbanzo casserole (can't remember the name of this dish) was dynamite! Looking forward to trying some of the others. Justine took good care of us - loved our visit, as always.

Stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner appetizer. Even though it was hot and humid we sat outside - great ambiance out there. When trying seafood I usually shy away from fried items, but the waitress said how great the mahi mahi tenders were so we tried them. She was right. They were so good! We also shared the shrimp...
