“Espera demasiado larga. A loooong waiting time.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Llegando a las 5:30 pm con mi familia tuve una tarde bastante larga. El restaurante no tenia muchos clientes y el personal lucía desorganizado. Ordené para mis hijas pequeñas algo sencillo pero la espera fue de 2 horas para poder comer. Finalmente salí a las 8:15 pm y con una gran decepción.

Arriving at 5:30 pm with my family, I had a fairly long afternoon. The restaurant did not have many clients and staff looked disorganized. I ordered for my young daughters something simple but the wait was 2 hours to eat. I finally left at 8:15 pm and with a great disappointment.

“Consistent good quality on sea food”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I have been a customer of Restaurant El Roble for many years and visited it recently. They specialize in sea food, although they also serve other types of food (American and country). We visit it mostly for sea food and have tried their fresh fish, lobster, shrimp, and some other plates, with very satisfactory results in all occasions. Their side of "tostones" or fried plantains is very special, as they prepare them in a way I have not seen anywhere else. You must try them.

The service is very good, as they have a pretty large staff and they are all very nice, courteous and efficient. Their prices are standard (as for similar food in other places), but you get a better value there for their quality. The portions are also very appropriate. It is not a luxury restaurant but it is clean and comfortable. They have parking facilities. The place might not be too easy to find, as it is located in a pretty complicated neighborhood, but it is where other restaurants are also located and is very well known, so you can ask anybody for directions, or simply head toward the water, as it is across the street from it. I'm sure you'll get a very nice culinary experience, as we have had every time we visit.
