Nice place and view. Waiter was friendly although had started working on the restaurant the day before we visited. Was informative and friendly. The entrees where served quickly. The wine we ordered was a good value. The food was very good and tasty. The shared dessert was not enough for two. The restaurant lacks cleaness and maintenance. Overall review: A... More

Great food! I've eaten here four times in the past three years. It is worth a stop. The food is fresh and made as ordered.

We visited twice in different years (2016 and 2017) during winter weekdays. Very little traffic. The food was excellent, and the service a bit slow, but very friendly. Yes, there are some cats on the deck, but they never bothered us. Bring some insect repellant if you come around sunset (which is nice to watch from the deck) as the... More

This used to be a small wooden shack, torn down and built very nicely. The name means water up to the neck. Great seafood and you must try the tostones, fried plantains.

We stopped here on our way to the lighthouse and the beach where we were told that the beach is the second best beach in Puerto Rico (which it is). This restaurant however was very slow. We asked many times just for water and after sitting down finally received water only after 30 minutes. We had to ask twice for... More

I purchased a gustazo for this place. When calling to make a reservation, Cristina, the receptionist had a horrible attitude. She said I had to be there at 4:30pm or not go, like that. I asked the reason and she said it was full. When arriving at the restaurant at 4:25pm, it was empty. I asked her why she had... More

I'm writing this review immediately after leaving the restaurant. When we got there we were seated promptly. A half hour after being seated, a lizard's poop fell on the table. We asked the waiter to clean it up and the rag used to clean the table left a horrible smell on it. I instantaneously lost my appetite but I had... More

What's not to like about eating open air overlooking the mangroves?! The food was very good. The service was slow, but it really didn't matter given the view.
