“View is worth the price of admission.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We have been to this restaurant several times and have been always enjoyed the fine food served there. The wait staff is adequate, not great. The alcohol is pricey. However, the view makes up for any deficiencies. It is magical and breathtaking.

“Food Very Good, Sevice very laid back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

The food was very good, maybe the best in this part of island, but expect to take a while to have dinner. If the their busy expect 2 1/2 hours for dinner, and 1 1/2 if they not busy. The resort is supose to be relaxing and unrushed, which the Eclipse takes to heart. The view of the beach is beautiful, and the pool at the bar was little used but fun.

“Dinner on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

Amazing dinner just off the beach with the sunset and great ambiance. The service is on island time but that seems to be the norm for all the resturants in the area. I had the beef with a vegetable, vegetables are not typical dinner fare in Puerto Rico. It was very good but pricy.

“Amazing food, amazing view but poor service and overpriced alcohol”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

From the moment you walk into this restaurant it is as if you are in paradise. With that being said, I clearly understand that part of the high prices of this restaurant are simply for the view. I have gone here twice within the past couple months and will say first that the food is gourmet and most of it is cooked to perfection. I highly recommend their salads, seafood risotto and fresh lobster. All of these plates are to die for, melt in your mouth.

The bad about this restaurant was the service and the extreme alcohol prices. Although we were waited on by a north American blonde looking woman who spoke fluent English, she obviously wasn't trained in customer service. We went with a large group for my birthday and first, my husband asked for a bottle of wine for just the two of us. On bringing the wine to the table she screamed loudly, "who's trying"...thus, making a very awkward situation for everyone. Then on pouring the wine she spilled a large amount on the table - she said "oops" and never offered to clean it, leaving a wet puddle that we went to other tables on our own and took napkins to clean it up! She also never brought a napkin or towel for the wine (which was on ice) so every time we poured more (because she never once refilled our glasses), the bottle would drip all over our plates and table. In retrospect, we found the bottle of wine in the store for $9 and we were charged $35 there - almost a quadruple mark up! So, if you want to have alcohol I would recommend doing it at home before or after going to eat here.

Will I return? Most likely. Will I drink at home first and secretly pray for a different server? Most definitely.
