Fish tostatos... nothing but octopus.
Ordered the Paella... the mussels tasted like a week old.
The one clam was outdated.
The three large shrimp tasted horrible. Found something in recognizable.
The rest of the serving was rice and octopus with zero flavor .... PAELLA:
Paella. With chicken, chorizo, mussels & prawns. “This tasty paella has a bit of everything! Wonderfully comforting, flavoursome and colourful ”. Serves 6. Cooks In1H 25M.
Never again. This place sucked.
Horrible... nasty... not good ... bad..

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!
