Romantic dinner at the restaraunt on the beach

Hi Everyone,

My husband and i are going to celebrate our anniversary in San Juan next week. We are flying in on Friday night around 10PM. We would love to have a romantic dinner around 11PM. The IDEAL place would be a restaraunt on the beach with some traditional live music, fresh sea food, mellow atmosphere. Can someone please recommend a place in or around San Juan? (we will have a car). Much appreciated!!

Restaurants are not open that late. Not many restaurants on the beach in SJ either.

At hotel La Concha there is La Perle, has a nice romantic scene and there are tables with beach view.

There are many nice romantic restaurants : marmalade, trois cent once, budathai, 1919, and others. But they do not have beach view.

Most restaurants close at 10ish so I hope you have luck finding one. Maybe Soleil on Piñones area.

I'm pretty sure restaurants is Isla Verde stay open late on weekends. Check this hotel for restaurant hours:

There's another hotel but name escapes me. Let me see if I can find it by googling...

Meat market is not by the beach, is very stuffy, and has no seafood. What the OP is looking for is found on the east and west coast, not so much in SJ.

Beach_orchid gave you many good choices (except Budatai, terrible place imo), but I believe they close around 10pm, are not on the beach and are upscale restaurants.

Perurrican is a favorite of my NY friends as it has an outside deck with an ocean view. But they close at 11pm.

Svedka2013, where are you staying? Also, if you land by 10pm, wait for bags and are renting a car you will not be out of the airport by 11pm, maybe closer to midnight.

Thank you all very much for your replies and suggestions. I agree our late arrival might be a problem. We will look into the suggested places that stay open past 10 or we wait till Saturday night!

I realize the OP would prefer a restaurant on the beach and the ones I mentioned aren't necessarily on the beach, but the hotels are on the beach. The airport is in Isla Verde, and so are these hotels/restaurants so they can easily have a nice meal after their travels.

Both the hotels I mentioned seem to be special occasion hotels. When I read the description for Miami Meat, I was ready to hop on a plane! I think special occasions deserve splurging and dressing up so you look good for your partner.

Those hotels also have more than one restaurant. I'm dying to see the roof top at night at Water Beach after reading about it. I'm trying to offer practical suggestions to the question based on my many trips to PR.

The OP didn't say where she was staying so I was recommending places close to the airport. The OP should probably count on having more than one "romantic" dining experience unless they're on a very tight budget! But then, you can make any place a romantic experience with advance planning.
