We walked here from our condo. We liked the look of the place and had high expectations but were sorely disappointed when we were ignored for 20 minutes after being seated at our table. It then took a very long time to get our food and our check. The food was good but not worth the wait.

Of course the check showed the full price.. $18.00 We mentioned the special, oh..it was a minute passed 7:00 blah blah. They did change it but why tell us about it if its... More

Great location, wonderful food but very slow service. Recommend checking it out, but be ready to have lots of time! Coconut shrimp was outstanding and the salad with cranberries and blue cheese was beautiful and tasty!

I love this place because of the location and food and especially the ambience but truly disappointed with the service. This was our 4th time here and the service is lacking. Both times on this recent trip we arrived for happy hour and both times we were charged full price for our cocktails. The first time happy hour apparently ended... More

This restaurant is in the La Playa hotel that was right next to where we stayed in Isla Verde. The ambiance was the main draw for us since we could see from our apartment the cool dining area that hangs out over the ocean. We walked here on a Friday night about 8pm and there was a decent amount of... More

The location-oceanfront! The food was very good and not overly priced!! Comfortable bar!!! The fact that it is a locally owned family business-not a chain.

We ate here twice - more for the beachside ambiance than anything. The food was good and it's close to most of the hotels. They always have drink specials during happy hour (5-7 pm)

This is a somewhat hard-to-find bar/restaurant, worth seeking out if you're staying near Isla Verde beach. The seating is all open-air, some of it covered, with absolutely spectacular ocean views. The service was not as friendly as other restaurants we visited in San Juan, but the standard is set very high, as we found the employees in restaurants, hotels, taxis... More

This is a must go to when visiting this area of PR....great drinks, food is very good and the view and setting is breath taking, it doesn't get any better than this....as for the service we ordered at the bar and the bartender was totally neutral which stands out in an area known for great service. They were there to... More
