The whole experience was shoddy, and expensive. Langoustine was overcooked, chicken greasy, calamari in such a thick heavy crust it tasted like overcooked onion rings, and a waiter so clueless and unavailable that we had to keep asking for water. All for the low price of $120 ! Don't go here unless it's for drinks at sunset.

After a few days of beaching, we finally found this gem. We rented chairs and umbrellas and had use of the bathroom facilities and rinse shower. They had a waiter serving on the beach for refreshments and food. We went there for the rest of our vacation time at the beach. Foods served at lunch was tasty, especially the ceviche.

A total experience. Dinner on the beach, great service and a great food experience. Good for out of town business dinner or dinner with the wife.

Very pleasant sitting outside except our chairs kept tilting in the sand until we learned how to lean to stay balanced. The food was wonderful.

Went there with my wife for an early Valentines day celebration. She is alergic to dairy and fish, so I appreciated the server went to the kitchen and they cooked grilled chicken, an item out of the menu. She gave me some to try, and was deliciously marinated with rosemary. I had the grilled salmon with mango pico de gallo... More

We were looking for something new to do in San Juan. We found this little gem. Six drinks per person, lunch, 2 chairs and an umbrella with beach chair service from Jose for $90 plus gratuity. This beach is private. There are 6 of us here from the ship. What a great find!!!!! I WILL be back!!

My fiancé and I just visited this restaurant for dinner during our stay. We had to eat inside due to rain but the food was amazing! We then went out and walked on the beach for a while ending in a proposal for marriage! This will be one we will never forget!

Pamela's is a casual, friendly oceanfront restaurant in the Numero Uno Guest House in San Juan. It has a relaxed vibe and all of the fish dishes are delicious. It has a relaxed, authentic feeling.
