After a couple of bad meals at neighboring restaurants along Luquillo beach we tried Ely's despite a lack of many reviews. The restaurant is small and looks like despite the few reviews has been around for quite some time... Service was slow, however they apologized for being short-staffed. We ordered and proceeded to wait for a fair while for our... More

There are so many restaurants to choose from in the Kioskos, but you don't want to pass this one up! Ely was so welcoming, warm and friendly. She visited our table a number of times to ensure that we were enjoying everything and to chat. She made us feel like family and because of that, we will be returning. Beyond... More

Tonight we stopped at this kiosk/restaurant. Delicious and amazing flavors. The food is fresh since is prepared to order. The owner Ely came to the table and made sure everything was good. The server, Rosita was very friendly and knew the menu from front to back. It's a must and will come back again before leaving Puerto Rico.

Great place that can easily be overlooked. Don't let the street view stand in your way. Nice patio seating in the rear. Fantastic staff, very friendly, and reasonably priced great food.

Ely's place is always great, I always end up here when visiting the island. The staff is nice and the food is great. Like the vibe here b/c it is very laid back and family oriented. Ocean front, this obviously makes it a favorite. Make sure you check before you go, I don't think they open every day

I really enjoyed Ely's Place, Kiosko #10. The staff was very nice, friendly and funny. The food was spectacular. We shared the alcapurrias and the piononos which were heavenly. Absurdly filled with flavor and goodness. My friend ordered the fried cheese.. wow! I could've eaten the whole thing myself. I ate pork chunks with rice and beans. It reminded me... More

Sometimes a "hole in the wall" type place can be a big surprise in terms of quality. My friends and I walked into the place because there were a few people close to the entrance that had mouth-watering plates, I still don't know what they were eating but it looked great! I had the fried pork with tostones and it... More

Been here a few times. During the day to eat, have some alcapurrias and other fried local food. At night, like all kiosks, the ambiance shifts into the local bar pub. They have live music sometimes. Good LGBTT amaaince to hang out.
