Started with an Appetizer, which was forgotten, but gave to us free. Received incorrect mofongo. This was second time here for us and probably not return. Ikaos is much better.

Excellent food with a beautiful view of the sea and very clean restaurant. Their specialty is sea food and it is very accessible. My family love it.

And we were not disappointed. The menu is English and Spanish. The restaurant is raised and view of Naguabo's playa is breathtaking​. We loved the beef empanadas, it reminded me of a Skyline type chili. The guava flan is a must try, and I don't even like flan. If you want to sit out side, use bug spray, as this... More

I went there last weekend for lunch because I never been here before and a friend always recommended this place. The area is usually full during the weekends but the parking staff was very friendly and they gave me a great spot. When you walk up the stairs they received you in front of the main entrance in order to... More

Good lobster salad, but fried red snapper was overlooked, conch salad was just average, maragaritas tasted like pre-mix, pale tomatoes and iceberg lettuce only (no fresh greens), and the empanadas were just average and the shrimp, lobster, and crab empanadas all tasted the same although the crab tasted fishy. Restaurant floor was dirty, open storm drain ditch under entrance steps... More

Be careful eating fish at this Restaurant or any other restaurant in this area. Three (3) weeks ago I got Ciguatera poisoning at this restaurant. The cause was consumption of reef fish ("Capitan" Hog fish) contaminated with ciguatoxin, which originates with certain dinoflagellates (ie, algae) associated with coral reef systems and accumulates up the food chain from small herbivorous fish...

We stopped here for lunch while driving through the area, mostly for its location and outdoor seating area. The menu was quite pricy, but the food was quite good and more than I could finish. I shrimp in chili sauce with rice and beans.
