Had to order the twice, so fresh they melt in your mouth. Had to have the Coco Loco too and it was very refreshing, enough for 2 people because the give you the coconut full and a glass on the side. A little hard to find, it at the end of the beach past the El San Juan Hotel and up the steps across the street. Has an open restaurant with a nice view.

After being out of my country for so many years I decided to come back for a vacation. Had a few friends recommending this place so I gave it a try. Lovely place with a lovely view and amazing staff. The bartender Jan made us great coco locos (best ever!) and the waitress Mirna gave us the best service we had in our vacation!! BUT when we ask for the manager to thank him and compliment the restaurant he didn't wanted to come to the table, the waitress told him and we wave him but he chose to IGNORE us, so when we finally went to him he was really rude and said "what do you want? I don't have time for you" with a really mean look in his face it was scary... MIGUEL WAS RUDE TO US!! Over all we had a good night!

We ate at this Restaraunt while on vacation, it was recommended by a worker at our hotel. The food was average for the area, but there are much better options to get authentic food nearby. The food was bland, and nothing exciting. In my opinion for the quality of food and flavor, the menu was overpriced. Try other options on the Isle Verde strip like Platos.

Right on the water at hotel la playa. Good burgers discounted from 11-2. Was craving a salad after five days in a country devoid of vegetables for the most part, I got two here. They were simple but good.

Great mojitos too. Friendly bartenders. All in all a nice low key restaurant amidst the built up overpriced hotels in isla verde.

After a very late arrival night before and not wanting to go far, this restaurant was recommendation by a family I met on the beach. Just steps from the ESJ Towers. Facing the beach to the left (East). Look for the 'Yoga' sign on a bldg. and walk towards it. Very local "Puerto Rico" menu. We had Mojitios and shared 3 appetizer to sample the waiters recommendations. I wish we had time to go back for the Sangrias and Crab Cakes that others had. The ambiance was wonderful, right on the ocean!
