“Perfect”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We stayed at the El Con and asked about some local food. This place was perfect. The best red snapper I have ever had. The kids loved the skirt steak appetizer. We had to go two nights in a row! Samuel was our server both nights. Good local micro brew on tap. Wife loved the sangria. Family friendly. Food highlight of the trip!

“fun dining”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

we had a great evening of dining under the stars at this fun restaurant. the menu consists of entrees as well as puerto rican and spanish tapas. we chose to make it a night of tapas and split five of them along with some delicious sangrias. the tapas were delicious and by adding puerto rican themed ones, allowed us to try a different take on the traditional ones.

“Fabulous decor, immaculate restaurant and fantastic food!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

A gem! We ate at Tasca Ole Lelolai twice over our recent new year's stay at El Conquistador. From the resort turn left at the main gate and you are there in less than 3 minutes tops. It is on the right hand side of the road and parking is just across the street from the restaurant. It overlooks a marina. Despite having a reservation, we did have to wait about 15 minutes to be seated the first night we went. However, the owner was great and kept checking in with us. Prices are comparable to the resort’s, if not a little lower, but the decor is fabulous, the restaurant is immaculate, and the food is fantastic! You can eat inside or outside on the deck. Tapas, mofongo and paella are the specialties. Try the sangria and shrimp mofongo. Both the seafood and chicken paellas are excellent too. Fried cheesecake is to die for! And the crepes are melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Be aware, as in many PR restaurants, depending on their suppliers and delivery schedules, they may or may not be out of a particular dish, or many dishes, so ask ahead of time if you are looking forward to a particular menu item, such as a fresh fish. And make reservations! The owner turned away several groups the first night we were there. It's not a big place. The service is excellent as well. The waiter was very attentive and clearly answered questions we had regarding some menu items. The owner came to our table multiple times as well and engaged us in conversation, even bringing us a beautiful crystal bottle that we had noticed on a table where diners had just left. She explained all about the homemade hot sauce inside which we declined to try, but it’s there for you braver souls! We enjoyed both our dinners at Ole Lelolai and highly recommend it!

“A Place to Experience”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner here and were glad we made the drive. We passed by earlier in the day on our way to Seven Seas Beach and thought it looked inviting. Our B& B was about an hour away, so it was a lot of time on the road since we went back to Ceiba after the beach. The service was great. We ate indoors as the terrace was full, but I enjoyed watching the kitchen staff through the huge plate glass window. It was clear that they were working at a fast pace to get dishes prepared and out to the servers. The paella was average but my partner ordered a sampler type of dinner which was fairly impressive and he enjoyed all of it. The sangria was good, both the red and the white. We enjoyed it without complaint.

“Good price and great food”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Bacalaitos as free appetizer was very nice and delicious. Kids chicken strips with rice was very good. We went in December and the temperature was nice to sit in the balcony. Will return!
