Food was good, location amazing. The restaurant it self is ok. Great spot to hang by the beach all afternoon. A little pricey tho!

Cons: far location meant limited Uber availability so we had to wait a bit to return to San Juan, and food was just okay.

Pros: amazing views, quiet and relaxing.

Worth it? Yes for the views 100% worth checking out!

No le dan alternativas de platos a la persona no lo motivan a otro si no hay lo que piden pues no toman acción y la persona se queda sin comer algo se queda solo con bebida. Me encanta el lugar pero fui con amistades y mi amiga le sucedió eso✍.

Definitely not the same Hook’d as we experienced when we were living on the island. What a shame how they have let one of the best places on the island fall back so far

Al momento de llegar , no nos dejaron entrar a las 11 para cruzar a la playa , cuando me habian dicho que si . Nos dijeron que era a las 12 , llegamos a las 12 para disfrutar de la playa en lo que abrian ña barra y el restaurante y por poco no nos dejan entrar ñq estaban en reunion de staff . Por lo demas todo bien y limpio . Tienen que mejorar la comunicación con los clientes . Y parecia que molestaba al staff cuando teniamos preguntas .

This place is both awesome and amazing. I used open table to get the reservation but missed to include that we needed outdoor seating. The host and the manager worked with us to setup a whole new table for us to be able to enjoy the weather, beach, food and music. Highly recommend for an exhilarating dining experience!

La persona que nos recibio, ni miro que puse que era una graduacion, ni miro que mi hija pequeña tenia un yeso! Nos sentaron en una mesa alta! Para que se reserva si alli las medidas de distanciamiento no esta! La mesera ni pendiente estaba a nosotros😡, la comida carisima y no supera las expectativas de tan cara pq de verdad no es lo que cobran! La gente seguia llegando pq es miercoles de salsa como si nada! La musica muy buena es lo unico, sin embargo si escribes que es una graduacion debieron ponernos en una mesa o mejor dicho en un lugar que estuvieramos tranquilos no en medio de todo el mundo que llegaba! Para que RESERVAR SI ALLI LLEGA TODO EL MUNDO COMO SI NADA! En FIN MI EXPERIENCIA PARA CELEBRAR LA GRADUACION DE MI HIJA NO FUE BONITA! NO VUELVO PARA TODO LO QUE PAGUE PQ NO VALE EL DINERO QUE ME COBRARON! Deben tener un poco mas de CUIDADOS Y VER QUE ESTAN FALLANDO! Pq dd verdaf la EXPERIENCIA FUE HORRIBLE! Tanta PROMOCION DE UN SITIO TAN EXCLUSIVO Y FALLAN DESDE QUE TE RECIBEN HASTA LA MESERA Y COMIDA! Por MI NO VUELVO F PLUS EN TODL

Tuvimos una sola mala experiencia y fue cuando se nos acercó la gerente para pedirnos desalojar la mesa porque tenía gente esperando. Nosotros hicimos reservaciones previas y estuvimos consumiendo en todo momento. La cuenta fue de un poco más de $300.00

Amazing location. More than fair pricing. Food quality (warm, taste, etc.) varies and can be inconsistent. But overall food is good. Coconut shrimp are AMAZING. Service is above average, more often really good and rarely exceptional. Personnel wear masks correctly and are super friendly. There is room for improvement but in summary this is one of those places I want to become a regular of. Ps: $25 buckets of mimosas in front of the beach?! Yes please! Serious Caribbean brunch boss vibes!

Don’t even know where to begin... Everyone was welcoming when my family and I arrived to the restaurant. First the waitress took our order and 15 minutes later she return to our table to tell us she lost the paper where she had taken our order down. Then we waited for our food for more than an HOUR! We also had ordered appetizers and we did not receive that either as we waited for our food. After complaining about our food for the second time, the waitress brought us our appetizers and the ceviche we had ordered was not cooked correctly. We told our waitress and she agreed that the ceviche was not cooked well and had to switch it out for something else. After we complained for the third time about our food, we got our order. The wait time was definitely not worth it. All we ordered was burgers and a salad. The food was alright. Lastly, the waitress demanded we give her an 18% tip for having a party of 6 or more but we asked for separate checks and told us that we all had to give her an 18% tip. Honestly, will never give back because it wasn’t what we expected especially after reading such good reviews.

A fun experience near the boardwalk. Great views, nice, rustic wooden structure. Good food, better than every-other-Puerto-Rican cuisine, including real salad. A fun evening. Great waitstaff. The drinks were weak, though. Very very weak.

Drove about 40 min from the St Regis where we are staying to get off property to change things up for dinner. The restaurant is right on the beach but dining at 7:30 we couldn’t enjoy the view as it was too dark. Limited menu, but our food was good. Service was very quick. It was a Sunday night and there was a live band playing but that ended around 8/8:15.

The food like the hamburgers must have more flavor because there was no taste and the sea food inside the plantains cups also need flavor if you guys use a bit of garlic and sorfrito you will see the difference in each plate of food you guys serve.the sampler I love also loved the fish nuggets all the dips love them all especially the guava one.
