“A nice place to eat good seafood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

We love seafood! and Salinas have plenty of places to choose from. We stop by a "La puerta del Sol restaurant "and we enjoy the food pretty much. It is a nice place to take your friends for a good fry fish!

“Tranquil local.. Amazing sunsets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Skip the noisy locale down the block... This place is been around for many years. Service is good and the food is also. But dinner on the balcony next to the sea... Watching the pelicans dive for food . Tranquil and quiet, this is the place to eat.

“Average place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

This restaurant has been around for some years now, so we decided to go to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We ordered beer, sangria, fish turnovers and marlin bites to start. The turnover and marlin were quite tasty. For entrees we had garlic lobster in mofongo (mashed green plantain). It was not garlicky, tasted bland although it was freshly prepared. Service was ok, the sangria was watery, wouldn't go back to this place. Once was enough.

“Tostones Rellenos are the best any ware”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

The food here is usually fresh especially the lobster. There are many divers who use the bay and they pick up lobsters. When they do and get them up on land all of a sudden they don't know what to do with them. So the sell them to the restaurant. Same with the fish. Land crabs are kept in pens outside the front entrance.

“Come for the Tostones Rellenos, stay for friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2010

With friends in Salinas, we were introduced to this restaurant, and every trip we make the hour ride from San Juan for the food. Good seafood,and typical Puerto Rican fare. The tostones rellenos come in shrimp, lobster, crab -and are extremely tasty! You cannot get them in San juan. Ask for Benny
