I was truly hoping this would be a more authentic sampling of Puerto Rican food, rather than the standard American fare offered by most of the restaurants. That said, I was disappointed in the food. We tried the whole fish, the swordfish, shrimp soup, and chicken. I felt it was the worst meal we had that week. We've eaten at other Puerto Rican restaurants on the main island that were far better.

This restaurant along the Malecon in Esperanza has inside restaurant seating and a chef who is well known in the area. Although you can find menu items that are more 'Americanized' , the cuisine includes traditional Puerto Rican items. The prices are perhaps a bit higher than at the beach type restaurants, but worth it. And do not miss the flan! It has a wonderful consistency and flavor. Daily seafood specials of fresh caught fish are available, and the fish is wonderfully tasty. The proprietors are a very helpful and friendly couple. Mucho Gusto is set back a bit from the street, along a covered walkway on the side of a small plaza. Don't be intimidated by the somewhat dark entry. There is also a small outdoor dining area in front and usually a menu is posted there, but the inside dining is more comfortable and a respite from heat or other weather.
