the food was good but we did as well at kiosks and street vendors at 1/4 the price. the staff were starchy but the maitre d was very informative about local activities. the desert was great but the value for the price was lacking. we did find some great dining experiences in puerto rico and will be back.

This is nice restaurant, but it's clouded with pretentiousness. The service was not bad, but the severs were not the least bit warm or friendly. They operated almost robotically. The octopus salad was refreshing, tender and delicious The lobster linguini was rich and delicious but the lobster was a bit chewy (overcooked) The seafood paella was good, but I've definitely...

Old school Puerto Rican food. It looked like a local family dinning spot. Well worth the trip if you are looking for local cuisine.

Very well done paella and delicious flan. Great local atmosphere with minimal tourists. The fish was fresh and the bread and butter was tasty. The locals tend to show up later in the evening and the attire can be from super casual to fancy.

Lovely quiet atmosphere with delicious food. Waitstaff was very attentive and made sure to make sure the special dietary needs were met for one of our group. Loved the experience. I ordered prawns in brandy sauce with tostonas. For dessert we tried the flan. Meal was delicious. Great experience

Their parking lot has been chained closed for the week I've been here. Their phone number is no longer viable. And, according to the parking attendant at the adjacent El Hamburguer restaurant, Atlantica Viejo is permanently closed. I was so looking forward to the seafood paella.

Went for lunch looking to take advantage of the advertised Visa Dining Program special and was told that it was not available. Nevertheless we decided to stay and order food since we were already there, it was a bad choice. The service was poor, slow and uncaring. It took forever to get the order taken. The quality of the food... More

We had home delivery thru Foodnetpr so I can't comment on the restaurant. The lobster Thermidor was huge, hot on delivery and cooked to perfection !! Their beans, Puerto Rican style and delicious as well. I will definitely be eating from there again !!
