Mucho Gusto  is a restaurant along the Malecon in Esperanza. It is set back a bit, although there is also an eating area in front. It has Puerto Rican cuisine and an excellent cook . The meals are a bit more pricey than some of the other beach food places, but worth it. The flan is wonderful, great consistency and flavor. Menu items also include more familiar American food, like sandwiches. Fresh fish with a wonderful flavor, daily. The restaurant may seem more dressy because it is inside, but in fact the owners and staff are very friendly and personable.
