“Good but service was horrible.”
Reviewed February 6, 2011

My boyfriend and I were in old San Juan the day before we left for a cruise and came across Punto de Vista. They had a great happy hour and inexpensive drinks. A week later when we got back we decided to go back and try the food. We got served our drinks and a menu then waited literally for a half hour for her to come back to the table. She had even walked past us several times and it wasnt like she was that busy with maybe 4 other tables. We were enjoying the scenery and our drink but were so fed up with waiting that we just left money for the drinks and left.

“Walk in and enjoy great food”
Reviewed February 3, 2011

Michael's restaurant is a real gem. Wonderful food - the mofongos and mojitos are the best! We enjoyed the shrimp, steak and chicken mofongos - the presentation and flavors were amazing! Our friend enjoyed the churrasquitos too! We learned about this place at the Sheraton. Michael from NJ is a warm & friendly host. Carla provided excellent service!

“Great food, great price!”
Reviewed January 23, 2011

What gem this place is... I found it thr. an cell app. We got there and the place looks like a sport bar. What a surprise the food was presented like a 5 star restaurant, it look great and tasted great. Michael service was great and the buy 1 get 1 free mojito did not hurt either... I will go back for sure... Great service, great food, great price!

“Best Value, Delicious Food!”
Reviewed December 28, 2010

We wanted to try real Puerto Rican food and noticed this place on a walk from our hotel. While we were initially a little weary based on the "bar" feel of the place, we were SHOCKED at how delicious the food was. We have a large group (10 ppl) and everyone loved their food. It's extremely affordable, and we've now returned 3 times. Fish tacos, chicken tacos, nachos, fried plantains, rice and beans and puerto rican rice are all delicious. AND, it's extremely affordable. You can go down the street and pay triple the price for less. Or, you can check out Michael and the crew at Punto de Vista and have the BEST! :)
