Tasty local food, affordable and stunning views. Walking distance to hotels, don't be misled by the revamped entrance... go to the back of the restaurant and enjoy the breeze and fresh food.

We came here for breakfast, we wanted to sit down but not pay and arm and a leg at hotels. Breakfast special is $8.25 includes 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bread, side of meat, Orange Juice and coffee. Great value and amazing view! Huge windows looking at ocean.

We went two nights in a row for the view, the rum punch, and Margerita's top notch service. We had the shrimp mofongo, carnitas, fried red snapper, enchiladas, and fajitas. Everything was delicious and the view cannot be beat. For a bit of fun the staff toss tortillas out into the water; the fish love them!

You can't beat a table by a huge open widow that overlooks the ocean. This was my first time at the restaurant, and I ordered the chicken mofongo (recommended by a fellow traveler). It was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is small and the staff are friendly and attentive. It's not fancy ... but it's good and reasonably priced. I will... More

The view is magnificent. The food is average at best. The service was good but at the end of the meal and 2 rounds of drinks we were told that they only accepted cash---So...we had to walk back to the hotel for cash. We would recommend going early for a good view of the ocean and drinks then go to... More

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.
