We started with Pastelillitos Chapin (FRITTERS). We follow with Mofongo Relleno with Lobster and Shrimps, Pina Colada and Puertorrican goodies. THE BEST IN LUQUILLO!!!!!!.

“Excellent service.. Amazing food!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The food is so flavorful and authentic. We ate some typical Puerto Rican dishes..Im half Puerto Rican and I can voucher that the flavors at King Seafood were what I expected from a Puerto Rican restaurant. Service is the best I've had in a long time. Our waitress was very attentive to anything we needed... and was there before we had to look for her.

“Needs TLC”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

It used to be a place very frequented by locals. They have not kept up the place and now it is so-so. Just needs a little TLC.

“Fresh Lobster”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The service is slow but you are forewarned. Although the service is slow, it has a very friendly staff. The best fried "chillo" (red snapper) in Luquillo. I also highly recommend the lobster whether it be grilled, stewed or in a salad. The tostones and the rice and beans are a must.

“An Ok Place for Fish”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We decided to try dinner at King Seafood during our recent trip to Puerto Rico, as it was a local restaurant. Service was very friendly. In fact, when we came into the restaurant unsure of what exactly was on the menu, our server offered to suggest another type restaurant to us if their menu was not what we were looking for.

King Seafood has no atmosphere--just wooden tables and chairs.

The food was just ok, and rather pricey for what we got. The cup of clam chowder had no clams that I could discern, and the broth was watery rather than creamy. Totally forgettable!! My grilled mahi-mahi was well cooked as was my husband's grilled halibut, but where was the seasoning? Fish portions were ok.

All the sides that came with the entree were fried. We asked it would be possible to get some vegetables and our server said yes, we could have mixed vegetables. Imagine our surprise to be paying over $20 for an entree and to receive frozen mixed vegetables!

Another member of our party had what seemed in essence to be chicken parm. He did not particularly enjoy it.

All in all, it was a mediocre meal at a relatively high price.
