Island View is located next to the ocean in a "fisherman town". The town is famous for it's seafood. You will find many restaurants on the same road, but I always come here. Parking is not a problem and is free. Don't expect fine dining here. The place is run by friendly and attentive staff. There is indoor seating with air conditioning and a balcony/patio on the back overlooking "Isla de Ratones" a small island used many years ago for skeet shooting now a national "mini" park. When eating at the patio look at the ocean, you may see an occasional Tarpon swimming by in crystal clear water. Take your time reading the menu, plenty of choices. For appetizers I recommend "empanadillas de chapin" a fried turnover filled with delicious fish. I often order the seafood rice, with nice chunks of lobster, shrimp, octopus and such. Try the mofongo if it's available, a staple in Puertorrican cuisine. Overall, expect a delicious meal on a casual tropical environment at an affordable price. I went with a friend and didn't spend more than $45 with tip. This is a place I will recommend to Anthony Bourdain!

I was driving along the coast and there were so many options for restaurants - so I just figured I liked the name 'Island View'. Well, when I went inside I was greeted by a really nice gentleman and apparently, this was a family business with the brother, father and mother in tow - all very nice and welcoming. And, the name well it's because from the back dining deck (where I sat) you have the most perfect view of 'Isla De Ratones', the food was good, the family was warm and the sunset spectacular!!!! I'll definitely be back.
