Fodor's Review

This meson gastronómico, hidden among a string of oceanfront seafood restaurants south of the center in the Playa de Salinas area, is one of the most respected on Puerto Rico's southern coast. Sit in either the open-air patio or air-conditioned dining room and bar and sample specialties like mofongo relleno de mariscos (seafood-stuffed plantains) or the many preparations of mahi-mahi, red snapper, arrayao, octopus, lobster, or conch. The paella with seafood is a house specialty.

Ruin our St. Valentine's day

I hav lived in Ouerto Rico for so many years and I must admit, this is the worst restaunt taht I and my wife have been. We sat for close to two hours without even attended my the waitress. In the meanwhile, people who came way after us and were sitting in front and in the back of us were attended..THAT WAS UNBEIVEABLE!..So much, that we approach the desk center and we told the person there that what was happening and that were leaving. This place

should be investigated for services and discrimanation.
