Every time I come to SJ I have to stop here. Whether it be for lunch or a delicious dinner, Pamela's never disappoints. The food is great and scenery is to die for.

How much better can it get? You get to have a table on grated sand while you see the deep blue ocean and you hear the crashing of the waves. For your entertainment, you can see bathers enjoying the warmth of the Puerto Rican sun or swimming the pristine waters of Ocean Park. You may catch kite boarders riding the... More

Friendly staff, indoor and outdoor choices but outdoor sitting is right away at the beach. Food is very good. Fish tacos, salad and dumplings are fantastic. Any choice is an appeal.

We needed a few more umbrellas which were quickly placed by the staff. We were given tickets for our drinks and ordered our food. It took a... More

We stayed here for a day while on an MSC cruise. The service here is excellent! We had good food and drinks, they even provided towels! Everything was clean. They also have a pool which came in handy when our little one did not like the big ocean waves. Would love to spend a few days here at the small... More

We were not sure about this place at first but the service and food were so great. Get the Whole Fried Snapper, it has the absolute best flavor. The pork dumplings and Shrimp Creole were amazing as well. Decent wine list and you are served right on the beach!
