Went with friends who had recently been there. We had salmon in butter caper sauce, dorado fish and chicken zaboreo. Fish dishes were done as ordered and very nice presentation. The chicken dish was tasty. Rice and beans were very good and bread was delicious. Located on a hill it has nice views and today a very nice breeze. Driveway... More

My wife and I come here ALL the time. Definitely our favorite local place. Have tried at least 50% of the menu and always good. Anthony is the BEST!!! Environment is nice and relaxing. Will keep going. Cheers.

Staying at Palmas del Mar, we ventured out to try this newly suggested restaurant. We enjoyed the food and location so much, we plan to return again during our stay. Salmon with a creamy piccata sauce, grouper with shrimp in a roasted garlic sauce, and halibut with mango sauce were super, and the service given by Raymond could not have... More

15 minutes from Caguas, perched in an accesible hill, we visited this restaurant for the first time last Sunday. It was a pleasant surprise with a great view, nice young ladies taking our order and well prepared food. We had fish and it was fresh and presented with some imagination and in reasonable time. We'll go back again.

My wife and I own a 2nd home in Palmas del Mar and often bring friends to PR with us for much needed down time. El Zaboreo long ago was enthusiastically recommended to us by Palmas friends, but our initial visit well exceeded our high expectations. Driving instructions are somewhat convoluted, but be patient---it's worth the trouble. Situated on a... More

Sancocho for appetizer and sorullos were delicious. We both had chicken breast, one with the cheese on top and the stuffed one and it was... More

I love going into a restaurant without air condition - El Zaboreo is located on a hill with nice view towards the El Yunke mountains and you sit like in a tree house. The only caution to take, is having a repellent handy. The courses are well prepared and very tasty. We did not try any other mixed drinks apart... More
