Honestly I didn't like this place, the mofongo with shrimp I ordered I had to clean the shrimp, take guts out of shrimp, plus the service was not worth $60.00 and without tax and tips. So far Platos Restaurant in the Condado is the best restaurant in this area. Sorry I did not like the service.

We stay for 3 days so we did breakfast, lunch and dinner in Uvva, ☺️ Yummy! Everything was really tasty and with fantastic presentation. It's a little pricey, but you are in a premium beach front location, eating in a bistro. The mofongos are really tasty, good bar cocktail selection and the view and ambience is really good!

Visited this place with my wife. The service wasn't good. I got my plate before my wife. They didn't have churrasco for the mofongo. My wife's plate came wrong (she ordered chicken and they came with shrimps and she's allergic). The amaretto flan was a joke. And let's not talk about the sangria!!! When we asked for the check they... More

We ate here twice. We were walking the beach and found this restaurant. Not many beachfront eating places in this area of the beach so were glad to take a break and have a meal and a drink. The service was a little slow, one of our glasses had a chip on the top edge and there were ants in... More

I had a great time at this beach restaurant. The pina coladas were great! They have $4 seafood or meat pies that were tasty and the best value for your money. Some of the other menu items were very expensive. I would just come in for a drink and a small meat pie as a snack and enjoy the stunning... More

We were in search of an ocean front restaurant for our last evening in Puerto Rico. We came across Uvva while we walked the beach. It is a picture perfect setting with the beach & ocean right in front of your table. The paper leaflet menu didn't have a lot of selection for dinner, but that was ok. The menu... More

There were three of us for dinner on a Thursday evening. Two of us enjoyed the well prepared filet mignon. The third person was as impressed with the shrimp & clam linguini as it was very creamy.
