“We keep coming back”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We have been to Puerto Rico 5 times, and we eat here each time we go. The reataurant is right on the water on the West coast in Aguada. The food is excellent and the prices reasonable. Most meals are in the $10-$20US range. They have steaks, seafood, and pasta dishes. There are two indoor dining rooms and a covered outdoor area with a few tables and a full service bar. The wait staff is very good, and most speak both English and Spanish. The last two times we ate there, we had a large party and had no issues with the service. I have twice had the parmesan pork chops with home fries. The pork chops(2) are boneless ans covered with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. The home fries are actually thinly sliced potatoes cooked in a skillet with oil and onions(excellent side). Our last visit I paid for eight adults meals and acoholic beverages and flan for $200US. This is my favorite restaurant in Puerto Rico. I recommend El Galeon to anyone visiting the west coast of Puerto Rico.

“Outstanding Puerto Rican cuisine in an oceanfront setting”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We're a tough crowd when it comes to judging restaurants, but this one was excellent! All four of us liked El Galeon so much that we went back two nights later. The "arroz con camarones" (shrimp and rice - a local Puerto Rican favorite) and any of the fish dishes are memorable. So is the service. They are attentive to your every need, like European professional waitstaff. The only area that could improve is the beer list, but otherwise this is a great choice for an outing from either Aguada or Rincon. You can sit inside with white tablecloths, or in a more casual setting outside with a flat screen TV for sports viewing.

“El Galeon - well worth the trip”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Based on other reviews for this restaurant, we drove here from Aguadilla. even though we came between traditional meal times (we got there around 4 pm), the service and food were excellent. We chose a table on the patio overlooking the ocean, so it was great. We started with the grouper balls appetizer. YUM! My husband had the skirt steak (cooked to perfection). I had the seafood mofongo, also excellent. The portions were huge, so no room for dessert.

Highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best Mofongo Ever!!!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The restaurant has somewhat a classy decor to it, and the best part is that its right in front of the ocean so the view is fantastic!!! You can choose to sit either inside or outside. I have to say that the mofongo is the only reason why I go, although all the food is excellent! But the mofongo is by far the best I've ever tasted and the sauce it comes in is delicious!!!!!! :)
