This is one of the places thar yo can not miss, because everything I had was flavory and delicious. I had an octupus salad that was great. The service was great, they never fail in this area, it is a casual atmosphere. If you want fresh sea food this is the place.

Had the grilled lobster and it was really good. The rice and beans were delicious and trust me I know...my daughter had the fried shrimp and enjoyed it as well. Service was great and the view was beautiful. Right on the water.

Great seafood and atmosphere. You can see the water and big fish from their outside terrace. I love their sea conch and mofongo.

Have been coming here for years. Very friendly and attentive staff. Food is great. From appetizers to dessert, delicious! The only thing missing is a good cup of coffee. Unfortunately they do not serve coffee.

This is an excellent restaurant in the area of Joyuda, Cabo Rojo. Their prices are great, as well as, the seafood! Very courteous and friendly staff. They have several dining areas, one large one with air conditioning.

Good service, and decent prices. The pan fried red snapper was delicious. I ate it with fried plantains + salad, and recharged my batteries immediately.

We were told this place is an institution , a must if you are around Joyuda. They did not disappoint , they have a good variety of seafood ( try the conch salad or the octopus salad both are good as can be) and of course they have Pastelillos ( turnovers puertorrican way) filled with almost any seafood, fish !...
