“We wished for better”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

New management here since last visit - decent enough food but no atmosphere (repeats of bad keyboard covers of old tunes doesn't cut it). One waitress (patroness) running around doing everything while husband doing little. We watched others leave. Felt sad as they have obviously put a lot of time and resources into trying to make this place work, but they need support and shown how to do it. Off the beaten track so either you find this place by accident or it is recommended - sadly I don't think I can in all good conscience recommend it.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Even though its a bit boring, no tv, not much of music or anything the food was great. Really tasty puertorrican food. My husband had a lobster, he was delighted. I had Fettuccine Pasta with chicken and it was really good. Our daughter had rice, beans and skirt-stake and it was really great. You cannot go in with a rush because it took a bit of more time than expected but the staff, which seemed they are in need of, was very friendly and you could say they were really trying their best to offer us the best. So, I would come back.

“In love with Sandy”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Restaurant is not located in the main tourist area on the waterfront, but located a short distance off the plaza . Decor was clean & very comfortable. As someone else mentioned the pina colada's are off the charts. I had Red Snapper, very fresh and excellently prepared. My wife had mofongo, which was excellent. The biggest surprise was the reasonable price, $18.00 for a salad, red snapper, baked potato. We loved it so much we went back the following day for their luncheon menu, also great value. Our friends who are Puerto Rican also loved Sandy's.
