    Drift called us to let us know that they wouldn’t have food, only appetizers and drinks. We really appreciate knowing that and preparing before we arrived. We had a great time listening to the band and enjoying some drinks. Thank you

    Estuve celebrando mi cumpleaños en el lugar en el día de ayer (11 Sep 2022) Primera vez que los visito y quede encantada. El trato del staff fue excelente, en especial nuestro mesero Steven que estuvo atento a todo lo que necesitábamos. Debo añadir que el propietario nos dio la bienvenida y estuvo muy atento a que no nos faltara nada. Súper recomendado!!!

    We love this spot so much and have been coming here regularly since moving to PR. We were looking forward to coming back to enjoy the coconut shrimp and Grouper Bites. When we got there they said the new chef took them off the menu (because it wasn’t “fresh or caught locally” however Salmon Tacos have been added to the menu and you can’t find a Salmon within a few thousand miles…I think we were “fed” a company line) We tried other things but were bummed about our favorite items and a new menu. We did really like the tuna tartar Tacos though. Overall this establishment used to be our most recommended food spot to people visiting. The food combined with the view made for an easy recommendation however, it will no longer be. Bring back the old menu!!!

    DriftResponded on September 9, 2022Hi Daniela. Infact with our menu change, 90% of our seafood is actually fresh. Salmon isnt, but are served because clients request it consistently. Salmon tacos have always been on our menu. We have kept the bestsellers like the tacos, the cheeseballs and also the grouper bites. The new additions are all made from scratch in our kitchen. We apologize the inconvenience it has cause you, but we have received great feedback from our new items. Thanks for the feedback!

    Hidden gem in Piñones. Food was really good, like better than it should be. For $15 had 3 salmon tacos with the most amount of fish I’ve had in any taco ever. My boyfriend, who’s not a foodie, thought it was one of the best burgers he’d ever had. Pair that with the view of a beautiful and uncrowded beach - it’s perfect.

    A friend (from the island) and I went for Sunday brunch. All of the seating was outside, but most tables were under umbrellas or tents. There was an enclosed area, but it wasn't set up for dining on that day. It was a lovely day, so I imagine that most folks would prefer to sit outside anyway. Drinks were good (cocojitos) and the food was tasty (french toast, chicken and waffles). Prices were comparable to other restaurants in Condado. Service was great - quick enough without being rushed. Super laid back atmosphere with good music. The beach was quiet - not crowded - and beautiful. You can get chairs/umbrellas if you make a purchase above a certain amount (I think $25). You can hang out on the beach and have access to the bar and bathroom (which was clean and neat, thanks to a very nice attendant). Plenty of parking when we arrived around 12:30pm, but it was a bit crowded when we finally left around 4. My friend thought that it would be a "tourist trap" when we pulled up, but now she's saying it will probably be her new "go-to" spot for beach days.

    The food and service was INCREDIBLE. However, it should be known that Ubers are hard to find after 7pm— impossible actually and the server was kind enough to let us know and gave us the # to a taxi service that way overcharged us and took 45 min to get there. Only recommend if you take a car.

    They do not have many options on the brunch menu, the menu is very limited and they do not have coffee that is essential for many in the morning. The regular food menu is very good.

    Beautiful views of the beach. Excellent service. Food was average but the views made up for it. Good parking facilities. If you want quiet, go during the day. We did. If you want party, go at night when it gets hopping. Place is highly recommended.

    Drift is more of a bar than a restaurant. The drinks were tasty, service was good. There was a live band and what appeared to be a few locals. It’s off the beaten path but we enjoyed our time there. The food is ok, about what you’d expect for bar food.

    Food and drinks and view is great. Service was good. Music was way too loud for the space outside.. they were very accommodating and moved us further away but still way over what it should have been. Lava cake was a great size for $7 but disappointed in the flan.. $5 bucks for a tiny little thing. Overall I’ve been there a few times and will continue to ☺️

    Es un poquito caro, pero todo es muy rico, lxs empleadxs son muy amables y la vista espectacular. Les hace falta es servir café para los brunch o después de comer. Tampoco me parece que es accecible para personas con sillas de ruedas o dificultad al caminar. Tiene una rampa para entrar al primer nivel, pero ahí no hay mesas. Pregunté si había otro acceso al comedor sin escaleras y me dijeron que no.
