The young owners, who are also surfers, have created a relaxed ambience that is delightfully matched by the delicious rotating menu and specials. Try the breadfruit, yucca or plantain chips, all fresh. Great fries, VERY good burgers at a fabulous price; these are stacked with onion, cheese, tomato, etc... all fresh! Grand seafood, always several selections (usually catch of the day from the local fisherman's kiosk a few doors from the retaurant) . The skirt steak (churasco) is tender and tasy. Vegetarian dishes to die for, and tropical fruit frappes tangy and unique. Try the veggie stir-fry. Delicioso! We feel El Anzuelo is the Best Kept Secret on the NW corner. Watch folks dance on the plaza out front on weekends. Extremely high quality food, ample servings, for remarkably reasonable prices.

I really love this little restaurant in the Fishing Village (Villa Pesquera) of Isabela. I have been there many times over the last year and the food has been excellent every time. Their fresh seafood choices are very good, and their coconut flan is outstanding! My kids looove their kids menu selections (the pizza is made fresh and is really good, and the chicken bites are real seasoned chicken). The prices are very reasonable. Can't recommend this little place enough! No air conditioning in case that bothers you, but it is really close to the beach so it is usually breezy and nice at night.

Visited because of the great reviews from other Trip Advisors. A bit difficult to find and not what we had anticipated. Very small place and if you didn't know better, you would drive or walk right by. Owner was fantastic explaining the menu and answering all of our questions. The food was fresh and perfectly prepared. Al fresco dinner on a plaza in PR was really a great memory.

I did not catch the owner's name, but thank you for a wonderful and delicious mea/

This little place has the best seafood. So much so that when we ate dinner here, I ordered the shrimp twice! We ate here as often as possible. Everything is super fresh. Great salad's, excellent service, low prices and the fish is caught daily! You won't be served day old fish here! Must try!
