The first thing you do before you eat is to check the bathroom if it's clean, they don't just have a dirty bathroom but broken toilets. You like mosquitoes? Well don't worry plenty of them on the deck. The service is very slow on a full day and the food is lazy, the salads taste terrible and the menu has... More

The restaurant is nicely located right on the edge of the sea. During the day this is great, however, once it starts to get dark if you are sitting to close to the edge get ready to get spayed by sea water. The sea food is good, I enjoy the rice with crab meat. Drinks and cocktails are well prepared... More

First of all this restaurant is quite far from Yabucoa, Patillas is beyond Maunabo on a winding scenic route. It is much easier and equally enjoyable to drive to San Juan, Caguas, Ponce, Cayey, or Coamo, even to Mayaguez or Rincon than to get to Patillas where there is very little of interest. If you go to Yabucoa which is... More

The view is great during the day, especially at sunset. The food is average and the drinks watery. The prices are elevated considering the average service and horrible plates and utensils they serve the meals.

This restaurant is right on the water with a great view during the day. At night, however, you hear the splashing of the water against the side of the restaurant and that water splashes right into the restaurant . So steer clear from those tables. In addition, my kids were eaten up by mosquitos during the meal. Food was okay,... More

The restaurant is located in Patillas not in Yabucoa. The service is extremely slow, it doesn't matter how many people are waiting. The churrasco tastes horrible, almost like beef steak. It seems like the meat was cooked long ago. The "pilon" the plate in witch they serve you the "mofongo" ( fried plantains) stink very badly. They have to change... More
