Pitos Seafood is at El Tuque beach, in Ponce. The restaurant is located just in front of the ocean. At the table you will have a beautiful view. They have free parking and a good service. I love shrimps in garlic sauce, the tostones are very fresh.

When I visit Ponce I always try to eat at Pito's. Fresh seafood, small but nice wine cellar and excellent ocean front view. You can go with friends, family or as a couple and you will have a nice time there. Service is good and they try to satisfy your special demands. Visiting them on an afternoon or before the... More

Deck right on the ocean. Delicious food, a mixture of Carribean and Italian. Great wines and drink choices. Depending on where you're coming from, you may need to pass it and turn around.

This is not the place for the best sea food in town. This is NOT the place for lobster of fresh fish.

Our service was good and the food was very good. Nice location with a great view. Our only complain was that the prices were a little high. If I was back in NY the prices would be fine but down here compared to a lot of other restaurants the price is a bit much.

Right on the water. Great location, great staff and great great sea food. Waiters are very friendly and prompt. The Maui Maui was excellent! If you like fresh seafood and great atmosphere this is a place you must visit as it is very good.

I wanted to get all the Caribbean seafood I could in my short visit to Ponce. Pito's has it! I had Alfredo shrimp and red snapper. My husband had bacon wrapped shrimp and we both had fried sweet plantains. We chose to sit out and enjoy the evening. We watched the pelicans diving for their dinners as we ate ours.... More

The location of this restaurant is hard to beat! Amazing view of the ocean, with great light breeze coming in. Kind of hard to get to if you are coming from Ponce, because you pass it on a divided highway and then have to turn around to come back to it. We were a large table of 10, the service... More

Seafood, wine and sea. If you are driving through the south and you are not planning on stoping in Ponce and you are hungry make yourself a favor and stop here. They have being in business for well over 20 years. Great service, nice atmosphere and great food. Located in #2 road.
