Simple place, hard to find in a cool local area just east of the airport. Incredible view, very comfortable and low key, and a great pina colada

This restaurant is hidden in the edge og the beach in Loiza. But once you find it and taste their food, you will like to come back. My favorite was the Mojito and the Coconut breaded Chicken breast. My granddaughter loved the Ham croquetas.

We were brought here by one of the local taxi guys who said it was a good place to eat. I suspect he gets a discount for bringing people here. This was our last stop before the airport, we had to be at the airport for 2 pm checking, and airport is just nearbye. We arrived at 1145 am and... More

The Waterfront's best asset is its location. Food is good though service can be a bit slow, depending on your timing to visit.

Tricky to find as it's back off the main road. Once you get here sit facing the water and enjoy one of the best Pina coladas ever! Mofongo with seafood is delicious. Yes, I came here two days in a row. It's a good stop between San Juan and El Yunque National Forest. The drive takes about 20 minutes longer,... More

After a long morning of shooting our music video, we went to the Piñones area and came across this beautiful restaurant right next to the boardwalk and the view was so nice and calming. You do need to pay attention to the signs when getting there since its right on the beach. I went with my music producer, his wife,... More

The Waterfront restaurant was a very cozy and romantic place for couples. The food was excellent, like their lobster cocktail was great. The main dish shrmp in devils sauce was delicious. The view and atmosphere was very pleasant. It was really an enchanted place.
