We arrived pretty late on a Sunday evening, so it wasn't very busy. The service was a little slow, and while the food was ok, we felt a little like we were bothering them by being there. They didn't say anything and acted very nice, but it was just a feeling that I had while we were there. Overall, it was an ok experience, but I feel as though it would have been better if we had gone during a busier time.

Waitresses had absolutely no intention of providing decent service (much less a good one). Restaurant don't have jugs to bring iced water to the table. Kitchen lacked half of the things listed in the menu. Paella was horrible.
This is the second time we go there and the experience was very similar both times.
No more.

Business meal for a party of seven. We made reservations thru OpenTable.

When we arrived at 6:00pm the patio/ terrace area was almost full, but inside only a couple of tables with guests.

We ordered drinks and appetizers. Then we order main course, mofongos and cazuelas were main selections. The food took more than 30 minutes, but everything arrived hot and what was ordered.

Overall good diner and service.

The view at this restaurant, when seated outside, is phenomenal. It looks like the waves are about to crash into the restaurant; that's how close you are to the water. The outside seating area is also covered, which is a big plus. However, the service was very slow and timing of food service was awkward (salad was brought with dinner, after having sat with no food for more than 30 minutes). In addition, for a restaurant with this view and these prices, a few very basic touches were missing. For example, some effort to control flies when the food came out, such as a citron candle, would have been much appreciated. Still, that view is one of the best I have ever seen at a restaurant.

WE WAITED 90 MINUTES FOR OUR FOOD!!!!!! That's right. From the time we ordered to the time our lunch came, it was an hour and a half. We were there for almost 2 and a half hours total. It's a beautiful location but 90 minutes is totally unacceptable. And they didn't even apologize. They thought that was normal restaurant behavior. Never again.

Amazing Restaurant

Memorable dinner. The view at the outdoor tables is outstanding. The entire atmosphere is breathtaking. Our server Dariana was amazing, always taking good care of us and always looking for ways to please us. She is unique and really focus on customer service. The food was superb, fresh, flavorful and the chef went beyond my expectations. Five stars isn't fair for this restaurant. If you are in Arecibo is a must visit this restaurant.

Cena memorable. La vista en las mesas al aire libre es excepcional. Todo el ambiente es impresionante. Nuestro camarero Dariana era increíble, siempre teniendo buen cuidado de nosotros y siempre buscando maneras de complacer a nosotros. Ella es única y realmente se centran en el servicio al cliente. La comida era excelente, fresca, sabrosa y el chef fue más allá mis expectativas. Cinco estrellas no es justo para este restaurante. Si estás en Arecibo es imprescindible visitar este restaurante.

This restaurant is a must if you are near Arecibo. The service is spectacular as is the food. We had mussels and fresh fried red snapper. The portions are huge so make sure that you order carefully. The beautiful scenery overlooking the ocean just adds to the experience.

My party had a tremendous coastline view. That is the best that I can say about the restaurant followed by the service oriented staff.

The menu left a lot to be desired. Most of the seafood on the menu were imported fish. We found three items (Ceti, Crayfish, Dorado) that may be considered local stock.

The assorted Pastelillitos apetisers we tried were indistiguishable from one another. Even the staff could not tell them apart.

The Cod was poorly prepared and tasteless in spite of the sauces in which they were cooked.

The Mofongo with Ceti I had was well prepared and tasty. The plaintains were fresh and tender. The Ceti sauce balanced. Ceti is a tiny fish that is caught, it was explained, near the shore line of Arecibo.

My fiance went while we were staying in Arecibo and we had a phenomenal experience. The coconut shrimp appetizer is so light, and tasty and the dipping sauce was perfect! I had the seafood medley mofongo and cleaned my plate. It was amazing, although paying $32 for it was a little steep, it was worth every penny! My fiance had the tuna burger and loved how fresh it was!

The food is the freshest and most delightful - fresh tuna in a most piquant and slightly spicy sauce started our dinner on a high note. The octopus slightly grilled with oil and spices was soft enough to melt in the mouth, the cilli (not sure of spelling) - small fish native to PR - stuffed red peppers were buttery and refreshing after more spicy tuna. the main course of fresh mahi-mahi in butter sauce was flavorful and memorable, the grilled grouper was soft and flavorful in the crust soft and flavorful.

The view of the sunset, the changing colors of the sky and the sea, the waves breaking onto the stones hugging the shore, the distant surfers - the effect is life enhancing.

The waitresses are beautiful, pleasant, and helpful.

Third time to this place and the quality of the food, and service has been decaying. And the prices had increased significantly. Worst fried plantain ever, hard as a rock. On the other hand the fried whole fish was outstanding, as well as the basil and garlic sauce. The desserts also were great. I know they will improve.
