I'd heard that Waruguma has fantastic food and was excited to eat there. Unfortunately, they were out of lobster, but so was everyone else because it's not the season, but also shrimp. I ended up ordering a veggie quesadilla and it was mediocre. We also ordered pupusas and they came out so long after our main dishes that we were... More

Friendly, no nonsense place for some excellent seafood. You will NOT go away hungry. It can be a busy place so time your visit.

This is a San Pedro classic. The Salvedorean family who owns and operates Waruguma has been in San Pedro for decades and their food is world class. Ceviches to die for. Papusas like your abuela made. But the seafood combo is out of this world! A huge platter of mixed grilled in season, very fresh seafood--octopus, shrimp, lobster, conch, snapper,... More

Enjoyed the food and service for a decent price. Perhaps a little more "open dining" than some would like.

They were AWESOME, the best I have ever had. The ceviche was good and comes in a big bowl to share. We just missed lobster season which ends mid Feb. The fish burritos are great too.

One of our final restaurant stops during our 10 days on the island and really wished we would have choose somewhere else. The reviews looked good, the menu looked good, and the restaurant seemed unique all anything but.. Our 7 year old had the burger in fries at $20blz$ we expected a bit more. My wife and I shared the... More

When I was last there 5 years ago the restaurant was just a little kitchen with a few tables and really good food. I went looking for it recently and it has expanded into a full sized open sided dining room. The food is still good and fresh. The lime juice is fabulous and you can't beat the price.

This place is next to or works with the pupusa lady out front. Great for drinks, socializing, watching sports TV, wonderful island food. Do not miss the lobster burrito.

We were celebrating our anniversary this day with a sunset cruise and wanted something informal, but good to eat afterwards. The original lobster burrito is awesome!! It is a lot of food for the money- two people could share. Service was good, too.
