“Nice view, food decent”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Nice place to sit outside for lunch. Monfongo was a little dry. Seafood monfongo needed more sauce, but was not bad. Husband had the skirt steak monfongo - skirt steak was really good and had more sauce, so the dry monfongo wasn't as much of an issue. Good flavor to it though,despite being dry. Calamari appetizer was okay, not great. Bland. Glad we went, would go back, but wouldn't rush to do so.

“Burgers with a water View”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

If you are staying in the Isla Verde area of San Juan and want a really good burger, tropical drinks, dining al fresco overlooking turquoise waters this is a must for you. The eight ounce burgers are juicy and cooked to perfection, served with fries for $10.00. Tropical drinks and sangria are also excellent .

“Best View, Wonderful Food, Great Staff, Awesome Drinks”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Once we found this place, we couldn't stop going back! I would eat here every day if given the chance. The view is amazing, the vibe is cool, the staff was awesome, the food is great and drinks are fabulous! Enjoyed the mojito's but the Coco Loco's were HEAVEN. Sat on the back deck with the best view ever. Our group had the burgers, blue cheese salad and shrimp mofongo (local dish) and all were FABULOUS!

“Best food in Isla Verde”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

If you want good food, amazing views and the best mofongo, this is the place . Do your pallet a favor and try the fish ceviche and mofongo, great service and friendly . We walked here from our hotel and it was so good we went back for dinner ! Nice ocean breeze and a fantastic place. We will be sure to come again. If you are lucky, will see the manatee's too !
