“Best Joyuda Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

First of all, everytime we go, they treat us like royalty. Staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. The food is to die for, from the appetizers to the desserts. Everything is always fresh and delicious. The only thing that kind of bothers me is that, since it is a family owned restaurant, when they have their kids in the restaurant, they are occupying a table which can be used for other clients to enjoy their great food and service.

“Best Seafood Restaurant on teh West side of Puerto Rico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Fresh Puerto Rican seafood (Lobster, Fish, Conk, Octopus, etc). The quality of the dishes is second to none. Family own restaurant. The Owner is the Cook so quality is number 1. The wife manage the Restaurant and their kids are the waiter, waitresses. Great bar and great atmosphere. The best know Seafood Restaurant in Joyuda Puerto Rico! Hands down!!

“Great road trip meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013 via mobile

While out on an all day PR road trip, we stopped by Mao's for dinner. We had seafood mofongo and steamed red snapper filet. All of the meals were tasty and plentiful, we were very satisfied. Not too expensive. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant .

“Way over rated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

First and last experience at this place. I honestly don't recommend this place. Interiors have a terrible design. Outdated bar, terrible service, after order waited too long to get your order served. Waiters are not organized. And the worst is seeing that people struggling manually making all checks. A restaurant w/o a POS is simply ridiculous.
Another aspect I believe senseless was were seafood is everywhere in the area charging $88 dollars for a simple lobster is crazy. In addition to that for a frontbeach place don't event have view tothe ocean from anywhere in the restaurant that was LOCO.
Hoping that Robert reconsider his restaurant again at the yatch club.
