My husband and I came to San Juan for our honeymoon and we're staying at the Hilton near by and his this was the first restaurant we stopped at (albeit because of the happy hour). We were greeted by the friendliest manager and our server, Margarita, was a delight. My favorite food is salsa (no shame) and this was the... More

Stopped in when looking for a place to have dinner. We were in between this place and Ropa Vieja which is next door. The outside is not as inviting, but we were curious to see what the hype was from other reviews that spoke about the great view. The view of the ocean is just amazing! We sat in the... More

The food was good, but not the best in San Juan. The real winner was the spectacular view. Make sure to sit in the back of the restaurant in front of the large open windows with the view of the ocean.

Excellent water views spectacular right over the crashing waves. Octopus mafongo was good. Beef fajitas excellent. Special hot salsa was amazing.

We had an amazing meal here. We were just walking down Ashford Ave. looking for a spot to have dinner. We stopped to read the menu on the window. First thing we noticed wad their happy hour specials. We were at the tail end of the eligible time but a very nice guy came out and ensured us he'd make... More

While staying at the Hilton Caribe I sought out reviews for near by restaurants and found some for here- so happy I did. Located just across the bridge from the hotel. This restaurant offers an array of delicious local food that is very tasty. I don't think you can go wrong with any choice you make - the pork tacos... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the amazing view of the ocean while you are eating. The portions are good but they don't take credit cards which is weird in such a touristy area. The waitress was rude.

Pros: I had the chicken Mofongo, and if you love Mofongo, you need to stop here and try it. This plate definitely could be shared by 2, I barely could finish half myself. If possible sit near the back, large windows with ocean view, an uplifting breeze with the sound of crashing waves. Reasonably priced. Cons: Their credit card system... More

We found this place after driving around for about 30 minutes looking for a place to eat downtown. We were pleasantly surprised by the choice we thought we had just "settled" for. A little pricey for budget seekers but with a view directly at the crashing waves and actually hearing them while eating was amazing!
