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

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

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
