“Amazing”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

This is the restaurant that we came back to PR for. Were there last year, were walking down to Condado and got stuck in the storm. Jumped into the first restaurant we saw, and oh my god the place was great. The view is insane, right over the ocean. Food was delicious - my first pulpo salad ever, and better than anything I've tried since. Drinks are good and cheap. This year, we came back just to have that salad again. Try chicken mofongo, it's to die for! Wait staff was very pleasant - and I am a waitress myself, believe me.

“Great place to watch the surf, bad food.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

If you sit at the back, this restaurant has wonderful, wide-open windows over the surf. There is even a ledge to sit with your drink, and they won't mind if you perch there. However, the food is not good, and certainly not worth the price. A lot of the Puerto Rican items are greasy and overcooked. However, if you want a reasonably priced, very basic breakfast with a great view, this might be a good choice.

“Great food, great location”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We followed the lonely planet advise and had dinner and breakfast here. The food is very good! Simple but tasty and of good quality. The staff was super friendly and you sit right above the ocean. Very recommendable! Tolles essen - absolut empfehlenswert!
