We went there with my group of 7 friends on vacation, they charged us different prices than the menu. The menu said 26$ they charged us $60. When we tried to speak to the owner he said “it is what it is” and that we...had to pay regardless. Also called the cops on us. When the cops arrived they told us that it was the waitress’ fault but he still insisted on pressing charges. Would not recommend this place at all.More

Food was not that good! Lobster overcooked. Margarita was made from a terrible margarita mix. If you want to just have a quick bite it might be ok because the view is amazing but the food is not well cooked.

We arrived and it has a spectacular view. The place looked clean and quaint. The restaurant had a wobbly table and plastic chairs which didn’t bother me. The problem began when I ordered a pitcher of Sangria, they filled a pitcher with ice and poured...a cheap bottle of pre made Sangria mix. Don’t order the Sangria! Then I asked if the fish was fresh and our server said yes so I ordered the Dorado fillet and it was bone dry and under seasoned and NOT fresh! The churrasco was much better. I was completely underwhelmed and disappointed. It might be a better place for a beer and appetizers.More

THE WORST EXPERIENCE IN THE WORLD!! Ocean Front, Playa Jobos... Isabela was very disrespectful to my family in front of everyone in the salon. There was a misunderstanding between us because of a $12 shrimp cocktail with Tabasco sauce (HELLO! cocktail with tabasco sauce) We...spent approximately $450.00 and we just asked for the withdrawal of the cocktail that wasn't consumed because of the strong spicy taste. The person in charge without giving us any chance to explain started screaming and threatened to call the police. We were very respectful and calm but the person in charge and the bartender started threatening us and screaming at us demanding we pay the $12. This was very disappointing, uncomfortable and very shameful. Their last words were "We've been here 33 years and everyone who has come here HAS to pay" ridiculous, they rather lose a client than $12 dollars. What a shame!!More

We wanted to eat somewhere with a view and this was closest to where we were staying. The servers didn't all speak English, but did their best to help out. Service was slow (which seems to be standard for the island). Appetizers weren't great -...mussels were half unopened and crab cakes were flavorless. Entrees were much better - we both had shrimp. Good pina coladas too.More

My husband and I stopped by the Ocean Front Restaurant on 1/1/20 for dinner. We were seated promptly on the outside deck , which had a beautiful ocean view. The waiter took our drink order, and we asked about his recommendation for apps. He suggested...the codfish croquettes. My husband asked about the beer selection, an ipa, no, a dark local beer? No, so he went with a Heineken. Drinks arrived, and then app. A Waiter dropped off the app ( not our original waiter) and did’t ask about entrees, left quickly. The codfish croquettes were served 4 on the plate, each a little bigger than a tater tot, they were croquettes with a mystery cream inside, no sign of fish, and absolutely no flavor. 30 minutes later we had to flag someone down, as our waiter never returned. We asked this waitress if she could take our order. We ordered fish tacos and a pulled pork wrap. 30 minutes later, no waiter checking on us for maybe another beverage, or our entrees. 15 minutes later a waitress walked by and asked if we needed anything. Yes, can you check on our entrees? We told her what we ordered. She left. She didn’t return with our entrees or an explanation. So we waved another waiter down to check on it for us, explaining what had happened. We asked for our check and to cancel our order. He went to a manager, who literally minutes later brought out our entrees, and asked if we wanted anything to drink. I ordered a glass of wine. The pulled pork wrap was hot, and very good. Fish tacos were simple, no salsa, or garnishes were served with it. Wait ! Yes there a garnish in my taco, I took a bite and ended up with a wedge of lime in my mouth. We had to call a waiter over for our check. Paid the bill and left. Never to return again.More
