Good food. A bit different than others. Shrimp avocado salad is good. The coco fríos with three kinds of rum are relish. This time they were out of whipped cream which kinda ruined it. Will go back for a drink on the water.

This bar/restaurant was a great find. We watched a beautiful sunset while sipping on drinks. Crabs kept climbing up to the deck and the food was typical Puerto Rican. It was a great way to kick off our adult only weekend.

My family and I went to this bar everyday for the week. Cory the bartender is very nice and makes the best coco locos and passion fruit mojitos. Food is amazing and the view is worth the trip. Overall this needs to be a place...More

The hummus is so good! They just need to add a few pieces of cucumbers 🥒 and some fresh slices of peppers to go with the pita! Cute place to get a quick bite before you hop on a plane. They have valet parking too!

Visited bar several times in afternoon while staying in Isla Verde. Happy hour all day long with 2 for 1 beers, and discounted other drinks. Ate while there, and food was excellent and reasonably priced. Nice view of ocean from deck, and service was great.

We went for dinner and had some a great time. The location is amazing, right on the water. It's an easy walk from so many of the surrounding hotels and condos and it's worth the stop. The food was delicious as were the mojitos. Corey...More

Great little corner of tourist area and Isla Verde beaches. Lovely views and friendly staff. Grabbing local bites to eat with awesome views of the ocean. Close to all Isla Verde hotels. Walking distance to other beaches.

I am curious about the reviews that state that the toilet is right in view of the hotel room. Is there no privacy?

They valet park. I would let them park the car for you rather than attempt to park it on your own unless they instruct you to do so. The roads are narrow and not all streets allow cars to be parked on. We walked from our... More
