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.
