This restaurant is just a few kilometers down the same street were La Cueva Del Indio in Barrio Islote Arecibo is located. The sign is small so be careful not to miss it. The restaurant is in front of the beach and it has tables inside and outside but all have ocean views. We ordered the sampler as appetizer (fried native food like alcapurrias, sorullitos, bacalaitos). The kids had pepperoni pan pizza and fish fajitas ( they are called fajitas but they are really like bigger sized fish sticks with fries). We also ordered Chillo fillet with fried plantains and veggies, a side or rice and beans and mofongo. We all had piñas coladas and for dessert chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream (called tsunami). Everything was delicious!! Be prepared to wait as the food is all freshly made and they take a little longer than usual to take the food to,your table. The restaurant is a bit expensive (over 70 dollars for a family of four including tip). Did I mention its ocean front? And that you can see the sunset and may even see turtles coming to shore to lay their eggs? Wow! It's totally worth the time and money!

We almost missed this place if it weren't because we had the exact address. It seemed closed, but the waiter came out and explained that the chef hadn't arrived, apologized for the confusion and opened the parking lot. Although the chef was still out, we were promptly served our drinks and a fish sampler with homemade tartar sauce which was hot and delicious.

We ordered stewed rice with crabmeat and mofongo with garlic lobster. It was delicious, very well seasoned and although enough to feed one person, was very satisfying. We ended our meal with homemade vanilla flan and coffee and just wanted to go take a nap. Wonderful ambiance, right next to the ocean, breezy and delightful, with quick, expert service from Herrison, our waiter. Will definitely visit again.

We visited this restaurant on a Sunday night. We were in a table close to beach with a spectacular view. We just ordered some drinks but heard other people in tables close to us that were waiting too long for the food. We didn't order food, but after the waitress bring our drinks, she didn't ask if we want it something else or if we were ok. We even went to the front to pay because she didnt' returned to our table. I think they have to improve service because they have a great place close to the beach. Prices were ok and as mentioned before with a spectacular view.
