We had an amazing meal here. We were just walking down Ashford Ave. looking for a spot to have dinner. We stopped to read the menu on the window. First thing we noticed wad their happy hour specials. We were at the tail end of the eligible time but a very nice guy came out and ensured us he'd make... More

While staying at the Hilton Caribe I sought out reviews for near by restaurants and found some for here- so happy I did. Located just across the bridge from the hotel. This restaurant offers an array of delicious local food that is very tasty. I don't think you can go wrong with any choice you make - the pork tacos... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the amazing view of the ocean while you are eating. The portions are good but they don't take credit cards which is weird in such a touristy area. The waitress was rude.

Pros: I had the chicken Mofongo, and if you love Mofongo, you need to stop here and try it. This plate definitely could be shared by 2, I barely could finish half myself. If possible sit near the back, large windows with ocean view, an uplifting breeze with the sound of crashing waves. Reasonably priced. Cons: Their credit card system... More

We found this place after driving around for about 30 minutes looking for a place to eat downtown. We were pleasantly surprised by the choice we thought we had just "settled" for. A little pricey for budget seekers but with a view directly at the crashing waves and actually hearing them while eating was amazing!

Huge windows open to a breathtaking view of the ocean. Below the windows are pools of multi colored fish. The staff is so sweet and friendly. The food is exceptional. I had the shrimp mofungo.

Restaurant was recommended by someone who has spent lots of time in San Juan. We walked from the Caribe Hilton, which was a nice walk across the bridge. The food was good, service was great, sunset was beautiful. This is a casual place, good for families.

Great atmosphere! The big airy ocean breeze windows were phenomenal to look through, take pictures in or feel the nice cool breeze in your hair. The Chicken Morongo was huge and ahhhhh so good (I had leftovers). The staff was great and very accommodating.

My tacos were just okay. My husband's pork and onion dish was delicious. The drinks were excellent (rum punch and mojito), and the servers were very polite and friendly. But the star of our meal was the view. They sat us all the way at the back of the restaurant, which backs up to the ocean. Such a gorgeous view... More
