Seafood is fresh and service is very good. Very personable staff that treat you like family. It has to be one of the best seafood restaurants in the area. The quality of the food is excellent. Everything I had ordered from the menu has been very good.

The prices are a little high, but not too different from what everyone is charging in the area for the same plates. I would definitely pay $1 or $2 more per plate for better quality and service.

My family and I ate dinner at Mao's and had a wonderful time. The red snapper and hogfish were quite tasty. The service was excellent and like my wife said it was very "unpretentious". I definitely recommend a visit.

Friendly, clean, airy restaurant withe very good fresh fish well-prepared in this family owned restaurant. Although there is no great views if the sea, the soft blue walls with their white and beige trim is very appealing in its simplicity. The service is very friendly. We spent a wonderful three hour lunch eating and talking with friends. The whole chillo and the fresh mero were outstanding.

First of all, everytime we go, they treat us like royalty. Staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. The food is to die for, from the appetizers to the desserts. Everything is always fresh and delicious. The only thing that kind of bothers me is that, since it is a family owned restaurant, when they have their kids in the restaurant, they are occupying a table which can be used for other clients to enjoy their great food and service.

Fresh Puerto Rican seafood (Lobster, Fish, Conk, Octopus, etc). The quality of the dishes is second to none. Family own restaurant. The Owner is the Cook so quality is number 1. The wife manage the Restaurant and their kids are the waiter, waitresses. Great bar and great atmosphere. The best know Seafood Restaurant in Joyuda Puerto Rico! Hands down!!
