Dining at Eclipse was a surprisingly nice experience especially given the scarcity of good restaurants in the Isabela area. Setting was beautiful, food was good, service was excellent.

This restaurant is really good! It's an open air restaurant overlooking the beach, so the kite and wind surfers are out during the day on this gorgeous beach area. Some may consider the service slow, but we didn't. We were on "island time". Don't go if you have a flight out of Aguadilla in a half hour. Enjoy the view, kick back, have a drink!

The staff knows the food, and explains it very well. The soups are incredible! Like nothing I've ever had anywhere. The pumpkin, the asparagus, and the corn chowder were all great! Nothing was bad! The kangaroo, the risotto with the langoustines, clams, and Mahi-mahi dinners were great! Daily specials and the lunch and breakfast menus (bittersweet chocolate pancakes!!!) to die for!!

The cocktail, wine, and beer menus were very good with a great variety of ginger-based cocktails, wines from around the world, and microbrews along with local beers.

Staff was wonderful – friendly and personable. Gabriel and Laura were “above and beyond”. Reservations were easy to make for our favorite table.

The Eclipse is highly recommended!!!

We went back to Eclipse (we usually go almost every time we come back to Isabela) this time and find that the restaurant is being going thru major changes. The atmosphere is still great and we find that is one of the best place to have dinner (romantic or not). This time the food, I ordered the pork medallion, was hard and with no flavor. My wife had a scallops appetizer and they were very dry and small compare to the usual plate that they served in the past. Service was decent (except for the host not very knowledgable of her job) and prompt. The captain (Gabriel) came and asked how was our food and he was attentive to our feedback and offered us dessert on the house which I must say they were excellent.

In summary I believe that the restaurant is going thru a transition and I will give it another chance when I am back in town.

Very nice views, very romantic, great food, and so-so service. We went here several times while staying at Villa Montana. The food was always solid, but the service was hit or miss. It seemed like they usually needed a few more staff, and we were literally abandoned at the bar between the lunch/dinner shift - very odd, and a bit annoying, but not a deal breaker.

Most importantly, the chef(s) seem to know what they are doing, so we will not hesitate to go back.

Waited for ten minutes after someone greeted us . two tables opened up and were taken by others who arrived after us. Nobody said anything to us. We were then offered the bar... After waiting for ten minutes. We left. Have been to the restaurant before but this time service was terrible. Make sure you get a host or server who is competent . we drove fifteen minutes from our hotel. What a complete waste of valuable vacation time.
