“Best Place Overall...”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is not the first time I visit El Nuevo Acuario, in fact I've been there on a few occasions, and every visit has been excellent. I am a local and so glad I can go have a beer on my bathing suit right after the beach or more casually dressed to enjoy a great meal, watch the great Ocean view and relax. Emmanuel will take care of you, from mixing your favorite drink to a song request on his never ending playlist. Leonardo is the type of owner that will go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and important as a customer. Everything I've had to eat here has been outstanding, seafood is fresh and tender the Calamari, Conch turnovers, Conch Salad, Mofongo, ufff the list goes on and on. BUT my all time favorite...Steamed Red Snapper with beer & wine reduction sauce (pic. included). As a beach and local food junkie I have been in almost every restaurant in Pin~ones, so it is, that my car drives itself there according to my wife. So believe me, if you want a family friendly place with great atmosphere, awesome service and outstanding food do not forget to visit these guys, you'll be glad you did. As for me, I will continue to visit my friends @ El Nuevo Acuario and be grateful that I live in PR.

Reviewed February 1, 2014

So, just got back from Puerto Rico and have to say that this was not only the best meal that we had there but the best night!! The service was unbelievable,Leonardo was a first class host the whole evening - he even picked us up and brought us to the place!- from the menu selection to the quality of the food at fair prices...best HOMEMADE WATERMELON SANGRIA ever...the catfish is the house speciality and it was to die for....being from new england i know seafood, and this was the best calimari, shrimp, and fish that i've ever had... recommend everybody visit this place during their trip to Puerto Rico....i've been to many caribbean islands, and honestly have got to say this was the best night out restaurant experience i've ever had!! Thank you Leonardo and Emanuel!!
