“Hidden gem off the beaten path”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

My husband and I hiked El Yunque and then in the afternoon drove clockwise along the coast with Paradise Sea Food as our easternmost destination. It was not a garishly flashy place, and we almost missed it along the small road that was the "highway" we followed. Parking was on the street, and when we arrived Wed. night around 5:30 we were the first ones there, so we had excellent wait service. The decor is very much like the seafood restaurants in Morehead, NC -- plastic table cloths, ocean paraphernalia on the walls, nothing fancy. But the lobster-stuffed mahi-mahi we had was very good, and the flan we had for dessert was the best we'd ever had, bar none. The portions were generous and the side dishes were plentiful -- we had our choice of starches and chose "cassava puffs," fascinating lightly fried balls of cassava that are a bit heavy but yet complemented the seafood well -- very much like a larger, heavier version of the hush puppies of Morehead. We felt like we experienced a local, not touriste, restaurant and enjoyed the experience.

“Worth the Trip”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

My wife and I, along with our two best friends spent the week at Palmas del Mar and hit most of Puerto Rico's tourist spots, along with several recommended restaurants....among them is Paradise Seafood, which is some 20 minutes north of our resort. Two of us had whole red snapper, deep-fried...excellent. Our wives sampled mofungo, which is an island side made up of mashed plantains with various spices...as main courses, they both had the combo rice and shrimp dishes....they were very pleased. We men also had two bottles of Medalla beer, which is brewed in Puerto Rico...they were great but the waitress on our check only charged us for one round...when we were leaving, I told the owner-manager that we had a small problem and he, sheepishly came over to our table, worried about what our problem was....I then told him he had to add two more beers to the bill and he was quite relieved. This is a family-operated business, with about fifteen tables....great service and terrific food. Recommend it highly. Cost was approximately one hundred, twenty dollars, tip-included.
