My wife and I went to all the hot spots in Old San Juan, then randomly a fellow guest at our hotel suggested we walk over to this restaurant. It didn't look like much, just a beachy hole in the wall. Oh man was it good! The food was fresh and well prepared. The place was always full of both locals and tourists staying near by.

If you are staying in Isla Verde this place is a must visit. We ended up having dinner there three nights in a row. That good!

Great mofongo with ice cold beer, great combo. It's a restaurant/bar, so it can get noisy. Good location as it's directly on the beach. My kids enjoyed the meals as well.

very slow service, but atmoshphere right on beach was good. Food, just ok, scallops were way too overcooked, but fish tacos were good.

Don't let the appearance scare you away. It's a small beach front deck restaurant...it's open air...it's not fancy.
But, the food!
You must try their Spicy Crab Dip...it's to die for and the Mofongo...amazing.
Better yet the prices. We ate there twice and both times we had dinner, a couple of beers and with tip the cost was less than $50.
This is gourmet food at cheap eats prices.

My husband and I stopped here for quick apps and beers after spending a few hours at the beach. We stayed at the wster and beach club down the street so decided to give the place a shot. Perfect selection of food and nice beach views of the ocean. Relaxed vibe with tv and music setting tone for that nice dive bar feel. We ordered the sweet and tangy calamari and the chicken quesadilla. Great portion size to go with our afternoon beers. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone spending some time in the Isla Verde area..can't go wrong!
