“Great little spot”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

This place is a little off the beaten path, but well worth it. You can literally sit on the water and enjoy the view. The food is great as is the atmosphere and wait staff. Must try the Churrasco wrap at this place!

“No frills waterfront dining with excellent food”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

My wife, son and I ate here based on positive reviews. The restaurant itself is at the back of a small hotel near the Isla Verde point. Parking is very limited. There is no indoor dining however all but a few waterfront tables were under cover. The decor is not fancy but the food was awesome. I had the churrasco mofongo with chimichurri and it was the best churrasco I have ever eaten. Very tender. My wife had the risotto and said it was excellent as week. There is a children's menu as well with the usual items. The service was good with out being intrusive. It's a little bit more expensive than nearby places like Metropol but it's a lot quieter, the views are better and the food is worth it.

“Excellent service!! beautiful location”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Our server was the sweetest cutest gal, she was knowledgeable and friendly. The drinks were outstanding and not skimpy of the 151!! GO for the Coco Loco! you won't be sorry. The crab fritters were bar none!

“Stay and eat”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Very good food. It was a little overpriced, but most everything here in San Juan seems to be overpriced in all fairness. We ate there twice and both times it was good. The "veggie burger" was excellent and original. If we come back to Isla Verde, we will definitely be back.
