Having moved to the states and being originally from Isabela, PR, it was refreshing to hear about this restaurant, which sounded promising. Although I went there at night and it was raining, everytime there was lighting I could see how breath-taking the view must be during the day, or better yet at sunset. However, we found the view had a lot more to offer than the food. The server suggested we have their special drinks called "Caldo de Oso," a local type of sangria; this was the best part of dinner as the drinks were better than our meals. We ordered a ceaser salad, which was not fresh. The tostones soup was good, but nothing special. I ordered the chicken stuffed with mofongo, and the only good part was that the chicken was not as salty as the rice and beans. Halfway through my meal, I stopped eating the rice and beans because they were just too salty! My partner had the steak with a side of rice and beans, which again was too salty and not the best quality for the price. My suggestion if you visit this restaurant is to ask for no salt if possible, or to order something which you know won't be soaked in salt. The place should be called "Sal y Arena," instead of "Olas y Arena." So obviously my main complaint was that the food was extremely salty so be aware. Although the server's cellphone started ringing as she was taking my order and she just ignored her loud ringtone, I actually did not think she was too bad; however, not the best service either. The end.
