Beautiful spot to eat and relax by the water. We went for lunch and ended up returning another night for dinner! Our meals were great and the service was perfect. Try the crab/artichoke quesadilla for a yummy, different treat. Salads were huge, fresh and tasty.

Great spot to have fish in chips or a juicy lamb burger! We even met two locals who were eating there, so that’s when you know it must be good. The special drinks were also excellent and inventive. I forget the names but mine had...More

While we were staying on San Juan we age twice at the Madrona. Both times the food was excellent and the service very good,even though much of the wait staff was just coming on board for the summer. Highly recommend you try it.

The best part of this restaurant is the view and the service. The waiters were wonderful, friendly and funny. They always had smiles. The food was good but really nothing out of the ordinary. The Classic Caesar was fresh but the dressing was very plain...More

We've eaten here multiple times for both lunch and dinner, but never before for lunch on a midweek day in June. The day was one of nature's best, which probably contributed to our sense that this was very special. Despite it being late-June, the restaurant...More

Lovely setting and great food. Try the shrimp and avocado "cocktail" -- it's delicious!! Course with the view of the water any meal would be great!

If memory serves me correctly there were very few vegetarian entrees. The only one I remember is the Caesar Salad.

What better way to spend a summer afternoon than relaxing in this over-the-water restaurant dining on coastal-casual cuisine and sipping flavorful cocktails? The deck sits over harbor, offering diners the only sunset view over water on the island. Fresh salads, creative grill sandwiches and famous BBQ ribs are menu favorites.
