Went with a large party so it took some time but so well worth it! Great margaritas!!! I had the Lobster burrito with coconut cream sauce. Best seafood burrito you will ever eat! Every thing is so fresh!! Loved this place!!!

Waruguma was not my favorite by any means. We stopped here because we passed by, but the food was below par. I got the stewed chicken and on the island you can get that anywhere. I was looking for something that stood out to me, and nothing. Food needed more flavor, service was very average. Would not return.

I had the lobster burrito, my son could not resist the seafood burrito challenge to get his picture on the wall. Everything was tasty...pupusas, ceviche, burritos, great seafood and very reasonably priced.

Delicious food, huge servings, and good service. We had the combo feliz which is a rotisserie whole chicken, tortillas and salsa for $10USD and a large beef burrito for $12. The lady next to us had a huge lobster cream burrito easily big enough for 2 big eaters. Yummy, yummy, yummy. Highly recommend this casual restaurant.

Great prices, informal setting. We had lobster pupusa, a lobster burrito and lobster tacos. The tacos and pupusa were amazing. Drink prices are reasonable, a rum and coke was $2.50 US. Don't forget to take advantage of the Waruguma lobster photo op

The lobster burritos are phenomenal. I wasn't in the mood for fish that night so I just ordered a cheeseburger. He came back and asked if I wanted beef in mind, which of course I did. It finally came out well after everyone had already eaten and it was a hamburger bun with a block of half melted cheese. But... More

We ate here for dinner. We started with pupusas - which was really good then we tried their specialty menu, shrimp with rice beans. It was really nice. We were not offered for special dessert but their waiter told us to try pupusas as dessert so we ordered pupusas with banana filling and chocolate sauce. It was good! The service... More

Great food! Great, friendly staff! I got the seafood sampler, amazing! This restaurant is essentially outside, it's covered, but has no walls, so it could be warm on some nights.
