The food and view were worth
The food and view were worth it but the restaurant's inability to electronically connect for credit card approval was very disturbing. What had been a great lunch ended on a sour note with us waiting 45 minutes for our checks to be processed. Otherwise would highly recommend.

Very hard to find at end of
Very hard to find at end of street on the water. Sketchy people loitering in street and no one answered the locked gated door. Had to walk around to back of restaurant on beach to get in. Everything else was great.

Stumbled upon Pamela's while in San Juan. Doesn't look like much from the street, but the food and the service were great! Definitely on my list for a repeat!!

Our party of 8 had wonderful evening; the food was delicious and their claim to the best calamari was absolutely true. The staff was very accomodating and made us all feel very welcome.

casual but somewhat upscale
casual but somewhat upscale dining experience. each of the entrees my table tried were well executed, and the conch fritter appetizer was terrific (which i find can typically be a dime a dozen). eating on the beach was great as well.

feet in the sand
We dined here two evenings inn one week. One night with our feet in the sand on the beach and the other in doors on a windy night (a little tight). Service was friendy, helpful and prompt without being intrusive. Food selection was good and food was well prepared and delicious. A little pricey but not over priced. Highly recommended.

This was a great experience.
This was a great experience. Eating right on the beach very informally but with excellent food. Offered great local color. Juan, our server, was so friendly and accommodating. He spent extra time with us talking about PR. We enjoyed generous portions of ceviche, calamari and salmon tartare as appetizers and had snapper and a langoustines special as entrees. All delicious. Reasonable prices as well. Great place!

This was our 4th visit to
This was our 4th visit to Pamela's over the past 4 years. The pluses are outdoor dining on the beach, knowledgable service, and OK food. The minuses are OK food and difficulty getting cab back out of the residential area where Pamela's is located.
The salmon tatar was very good. The organic salad was unremarkable - lettuce, a couple of croutons and a citrus dressing. My wife's mahi mahi was OK, but boring, plain rice. I opted for the daily special - beef churrasco with pinapple chimichurri. It was flavorless and very oily (I know it is olive oil) and had no zip.
It seems that the quality of the food is on a down tick - too bad, we love the setting. The food at Jams - A Rum Bar had it beat hand's down.

Great restaurant on the beach!
Great location right on the beach, great food, great service, great in every respect! The staff are super accommodating. Best to call and tell them special needs, such as large groups outside. We went twice in 5 days, first with a group of 12, then went back with 20, and they handled it fabulously!

Great location - right on
Great location - right on the beach and great food. Best sangria I have ever had. Only cautions are that I feel the items are overpriced and there aren't that many selections.

One of the best restaurants
One of the best restaurants we have been to this year. You are right on the beach. Food and service both great.

Great ambience and food!!!
This is our third time at this restaurant. We typically go to Pamela's on our last night in San Juan because it is a great end to a great trip to Puerto Rico. The food is fantastic, unique, and very tasteful. The ambience involves your feet in the sand, fantastic view of ocean, no city lights, and great sound of the ocean. Thie food is not inexpensive but the quality matches the value/price.

BEST MEAL In Puerto Rico
We had a wonderful dinner. The food was superb. Quality, Temperature, taste! I would recommend this restaurant to all. I wish I had the time to go back a second time. The server was knowledgeable friendly, and made our experience even more special.

In San Juan for one night with a group (6) of friends. Found Pamelas on open table. It was nothing short of wonderful. Sat on the beach and everything was great. Our server, Juan, was friendly, attentive and made perfect recommendations for all courses of food. Their house favorite calamari was simply the best we've ever had. We were all very pleased and glad we chose this place. Would definitely return any chance we get.

Everything I had hoped for
The reviews suggested that Pamela;s would be a great place to eat on the last night of our vacation and we were not disappointed. Was it the sound of the ocean, the end of a great vacation or was it truly amazing food. I think it was a combination of all the above, but our dinner was one of the best meals I have ever had. I hope we get the chance to eat here again and would recommend this with hesitation.
