It's an amazing place. I live in the area and pass every day for work. I decided to visit with my wife for a valentine dinner it was the best option. It's a family owned local, nothing fancy just a nice wooden local with a view to Palomino and Culebra island if it's clear enough. As we get in, they... More

Fresh seafood, cool atmosphere, and friendly service. Seaside, casual dining. Whole fried fish and seafood stuffed arepas are a treat! This is an experience that should not be missed!

This is a place where food is king. Puertorrican seafood is a culinary art form of its own. Experience eating like you never have before.

Very casual, in fact, you sit outside but right at water's edge. Feel free to feed the Tarpon who hang around with their noses out of the water! But you won't want to share your food with them. I had the Arepa de Pulpo. Enough said. I can't wait to go back and eat that again. My first time having... More

Always come here for the "arepas rellenas de carrucho". Fast service with a view of the ocean, very informal but very delicious!

Arepas rellenas are unbelievable. Or choose your fresh fish and they will fry it. It's a must place to visit. Expect the best fresh sea food.

Pick your fresh fish and they will fry it to perfection. Or you can try their arepas stuffed with seafood - from codfish, shrimp, octopus, etc... Don't let the primitive green structure fool you, this family owned place is the real thing. Fridays, Saturdays, Sunday and holidays...
