The views are gorgeous and so is the restaurant's ambiance. The steaks were great, other meals so-so. The drinks were very good. The service was very slow. We lived with the 20 minute wait for our drinks, but another hour for our meals and another hour for our check...yikes. If you want a whole evening experience this is your spot. The restaurant and its views are wonderful, but we got tired after 3 1/2 hours.

We had a lovely evening at Eclipse. The food was delicious (and that is after having had a gala dinner for ProArte Musical the night before at Augusto's in San Juan. My husband had filet mignon with lobster confit that he said "was to die for". I had seared scallops and an Eclipse salad - two small plates - that I found refreshingly good and unique. The atmosphere is really lovely - open to the beach with a fine country tropical style of decor. We also had a cucumber gimlet - a signature drink made like a mojito but with cucumber infused vodka and cilantro. Definitely, try it!

Wow. This place was STUNNING. We had our last meal of our vacation at Eclipse, and it was so special. Our table was right in the corner of the restaurant, facing the spectacular view. There were a few moments that I actually closed my eyes and told myself to live in this moment because it probably won't be repeated. The food was so delicious and artfully presented. It was, hands down, the best meal on our entire vacation. The fish and seafood was so fresh. I also had a charred fruit salad that was staggeringly creative and delicious. Also, the menu is very pescaterian friendly, with a more at the top that they can make most meals vegan or vegetarian. I felt our meal was WELL worth the cost, considering we spent the same amount at several other places for lesser quality views and meals. It was perfect. Completely.

Only good thing about staying here is this restaurant. Really yummy fish, great ceviche! The restaurant is located right on the beach so it is very romantic. I would recommend for lunch or dinner.

This high end restaurant on the beach has both outstanding food and views of the beach. If you are staying at Villa Tropical apartments you get a 10% discount. Wine was reasonably priced and save room for desert. Wait staff is very attentive and helpful with describing the gourmet menu items. If you are in the Shack's Beach area take that someone special to an outstanding meal. We had the Dover sole and the Shrimp pasta dish along with a shared Eclipse salad. For desert a Flan that would easily serve two people and the chocolate 'Pot de Creme' was outstanding. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant.
