It's a nice alternative. The service is average and the prices are not too high. But you get what you paid for. Food is not bad, but not excelent. Maybe if I had better service.

If you visit the Arecibo Lighthouse or La Cueva del Indio drop by Picholo for great fresh sea-food. This used to be a locals rest but now it's visited by many torists that come to Arecibo. Service is excellent and the prices very reasonable.

This was the first restaurant we ate at when arriving in Puerto Rico. We weren't greeted by anything other than some redfish and shrimp that looked like they had been sitting in the window all day. We had a party of fifteen and not a one of us could recommend their meal. I prayed non of us got sick and to their credit non of us did. That said the place had no air was lack luster and was way over priced $25 - $30 a person for a plate of food with no presentation or flavor. Every time we passed this restaurant we all cringed. Hopefully the restaurant will freshen their place and food up.

OMG it took forever to get my food. Basically a fast food restaurant & took 2 hours from arriving to leaving. Once it arrived food was decent. I had red snapper & it was tasty. A bit salty but I liked it. Be prepared for the whole fish, head included. I went with four others and no one complained about the food. Very loud too. Just give yourself plenty of time & be patient.

food was good but the service was not. The waiter was always busy talking with friends at a table for far too long. We had to bother another waiter to help us. The place can benefit of a good cleaning and renovation
