This is off the beaten path, but well worth the effort to find. The Margaritas are spot on. ordered the fish fingers for an app and were perfect. (Fresh Grouper). We were there on a Monday night, so we couldn't pass up the 2 for 1 Lobster. By far the best we had on the island for our two weeks! Buttery, sweet and tender! Ended up with a few more Margaritas for dessert!! Under $70 for multiple drinks, shared app and two GREAT Lobster dinners! BTW the service was some of the best we have had ever! Cannot wait to go back!

This was our second visit to La Perlita and this time we brought our friends. Lionfish was extraordinary as was the seafood stuffed red snapper. The food is incredible, the service is amazing, and the prices are just unbelievable. This restaurant is possibly one of the best seafood restaurants I visited in several countries. The food is so fresh. Do not miss an opportunity to have dinner at this amazing place!

We went back to La Perlita after hearing rumors that it had closed - it has not! While i was sad that they didn't have lionfish this trip, we still had great ceviche and fish. My friend got the chile relleno stuffed with seafood which was amazing! Still love this place - its off the tourist path (yes, there are other americans there, but let's just say it doesn't have the tourist vibe) and a great reasonably priced option for local seafood.
