This is the one of the only places in San Juan you can have a nice dinner with your feet on the sand. A hidden gem... you should make a reservation to dine on the beach. This is a nice restaurant, frequented mostly by locals (and some americans) that will give you a good "New Puerto Rican" dining experience. We... More

We dined on the beach! It was a beautiful night, there was a light breeze, the place wasn't at all packed. The food is delicious, very well plated. Service was average for our liking, we thought they were very slow. However, I believe it's probably excellent service by San Juan standards, because everywhere we went seemed very slow (long wait...

We arrived in San Juan and wanted someplace on the way to our destination- just off the road a short distance. Pamela's had great reviews - we decided to try it. Inside a gated community and narrow streets with a lot of cars.... it was worth the trip! We arrived and were greeted and taken out to the beach with... More

Pamela's is literally on the beach. Chairs are in the sand. Great menu. Appetizers were top notch. Calamari and shrimp were awesome. The muscles were a bit spicy but for those who like the bite, were great. We shared a few entrees and were all very happy. Kids ran around and played in the sand. We would definitely go back.

Combination of very good food, excellent service, and magnificent view. Eating good food on the beach and listening to the ocean, what else can you wish for.

Eating at this restaurant is truly a different experience. It is located in a private guest house in a quiet neighborhood in San Juan. The restaurant sits directly on the beach making it very romantic! They serve great seafood, great drinks and a fantastic experience. This restaurant is one of the best we have eaten at in San Juan. Don't... More

Restaurant with an italian-carribean touch. On the beach, they provide beach service, coexisting with a slightly wornout hotel, the restaurant and service is better than most of what you get in DownTown San Juan.

Gourmet food feet in sand view to live for. People have decided to emigrate to Puerto Rico half way through the appetizers.

A little hard to get to (located in a gated community) and only has street parking but worth the trip. Had the Seafood Fricasse and it was delicous. Restaurant is known for their outside beach seating but we didn't eat outside, since it was already dark and wanted to see what we were eating. However, food and service was still... More

Pamela’s, is a small hotel in the Ocean Park Residential Area of San Juan. Is basically near everything. (But in San Juan you always will need a car) They do not have parking for guest, you need to park on the street. They offer basic amenities, the rooms are small but clean. Their restaurant is very good, and basically you... More
