Friday night, after a hard work, was imperative to have some drinks and talk a little bit with friends, El Porvenir is the place...

Had lunch in this place, great food, good pricing. The only issue was the service. Although there were not very busy, it took a long time to get our food.

Thank you very much for your comments!!!! We are very sorry that the service that day was not as fast as it usually is, Feb 5th. is the my sons birthday and we had servers helping with it in the second floor of the restaurant.(it is not an excuse, we should give always very good service, I´m just explaining why this happen) and we also had two catering events at the same time.
We hope to have you back soon and give us the opportunity to change this wrong impression that you have of our service.
Thank you!!

Here you can eat delicious seafood and drink all kind of beverages, something funny, is a message that says "Here you are better than across the avenue" (this is the cemetery), but someone in the cemetery´s wall wrote "Here are the ones who used to drink in front".

This restaurant has been in operation since 1923. The food was amazing ( I recomend the "Mercedes Benz " with crab. The beer is deliciously cold and the portions are not skimpy at all.

An old school restaurant - in fact we had many client / senior management dinner meetings there. Classic service - older gents who are respectful of the table and did not hover or annoy in any way.

The by line of the restaurant is "It's better in here than over there". "Over there" in this case means the very large cemetary acorss the road

Excellent seafood fare, fresh and vibrant. Jolly spot with several areas, from family dining to a gent's cantina. The kitchen is excellent and the rest of staff quite efficient. Go for negrilla filet. One of my favourites.
