Spent a couple of nights in San Juan for my wife's 40th. Booked a reservation in hopes of the restaurant being a family friendly environment (1 yr old baby). Once we arrived it appeared to be a slow night at restaurant but the staff was super friendly and attentive. Food was good but view is limited from inside restaurant. Over... More

We weren't expecting too much from Pamela's - we just wanted to eat on the beach. As others have noted, the tables are right on the sand and your chairs sink in! It's a beautiful setting. But the food was absolutely terrific! We started with a yucca soup and green salad. The yucca soup was served room temperature, which was... More

Came here for the prospect of sitting on beach for our dinner. Was a little skeptical at first but the food was first rate and the service was amazing. Cocktails were custom made in house and I would recommend the margarita and mojito.

In good weather, dining can be beach side which is very charming and relaxed. The food and service were very good. We enjoyed the unrushed vibe but attention to detail with our meals.

We went to Pamela's last night. We got there at 4:30 and were told dinner service doesn't start till 6. So we got a seat on the beach and had drinks till dinner service. I ordered rack of lamb and my boyfriend ordered the ribeye. It was delicious! We had a $200 bill so it isn't cheap, but we drank... More

Wonderful little restaurant where you can choose to eat inside or right on the beach!! The surf and turf burger was to die for! About 14 dollars but worth every penny!
