This restaurant has many reasons to motivate me to return. Located just in Ocean Park beach.. you can imagine the spectacular view! You just open the door and you are stepping the beach sand. They offer a very good service, you can feel at home and reasonable prices. The menu offer very good options... For appetizers... from a mushroom cream...... 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 booked this beach club as a day pass while cruising, for our day in San Juan. We were a group of 25 (adults and kids) and our chairs were all set up. 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!

We came here and stayed for the day, due to recommendations from others, on the beach and had lunch here. The restaurant is located pretty far back from the beach but they had servers running back and forth. They set up our chairs for us where we wanted and was constantly checking on us to make sure that we were... More

This quaint restaurant with ocean side dining also has tables on the beach with an excellent view of the sunset. The food and service was excellent. My wife ordered the churrasco with chimichurri and I ordered the snapper. Both were excellent dishes and this place was moderately priced, under priced in my opinion for the quality of dishes. I grew... More

We read great reviews for Pamela’s Caribbean Cuisine. It’s a small restaurant actually on the beach. We had a 6 pm reservation and no one was there except us, which by most standards is not a good sign. We stated off with the chicken lettuce wraps which were outstanding. The chicken was cooked in a spicy sauce that was wonderful.... More

A friend who is from Puerto Rico said this is his favorite restaurant on the whole island and we understand why! This was not only the best meal we had on our trip, it was one of our favorite meals ever. Great for the whole family, moderately priced (for good, real, fresh food) in a relaxed but not touristy atmosphere.... More
