My wife was wanting to go, as this was in Lonely Planet as a good spot to eat. Meh is all I can say. The view from the back of the dining area is spectacular. Frankly, good enough that at $17 + tip for 2 people for breakfast, the place wasn't a complete waste of time. It's a very cheesy... More

I do not recommend this restaurant. I was going through the other reviews and just hoping that maybe I went on a bad night. Great view, awful food. I ordered the pork tacos and they came out cold with no cheese no rice and beans or anything. My husband ordered the steak fajitas and they were not good either. I... More

Hacienda Don Jose was recommended by our taxi driver. The restaurant is small, has some tables close to the street, but the best tables are inside and next to large windows which open onto the ocean. Waves practically crash next to your table! We tried Puerto Rican dishes and enjoyed everything we ate. The mofongo was delicious. The drinks were... More

My girlfriend and I traveled to the area recently and landed at this place near our hotel prior to knowing where in the world anything really was. The first thing we asked was to go to the back on the ocean...and WOW....perfect view. The food and prices were good and the setting was great. It seemed to be a warm... More

For the price this is an ok Mexican food restaurant. If you are on a budget, it is a good place to have decent food and drinks. It has a nice view and breeze from the ocean. The service was good and pleasant.

We were in San Juan to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This was our favorite restaurant and we ate there several times. Loved their homemade salsa and pork tostones. The view was amazing! It was an easy walk from La Concha too.

I believe this restaurant is a staple in Isla Verde. Good PR food, good service and reasonable prices. The food we ordered was very tasty and well prepated, the waitress was very attentive and helpful. For a quick bite, a sandwich, a drink or a bigger meal, they have you covered.

We always go to this place, right on the water in Condado, great views, great margaritas and great food....NOT! In the past, it was, not anymore....they do a combo of Mexican and Puerto Rican fare. Sounds good. The first sign of trouble was when walked in, the waiter had a sneezing fit and essentially walked away from us because he... More

This was the cheapest restaurant and literally it sits on the water. My husband loved the beef and chicken tacos. I had the shrimp mofongo and was good except it needed flavor and the shrimp had the shell on which I don't like it this way. Overall it's the best ocean view.

We ate at this restaurant in April (2014).... Had the BEST shrimp fajitas ever! If you are in Puerto Rico, you definitely need to try this place! Reasonable prices and great service. Make sure you ask to sit in the back of the restaurant so you look out over the water.
