After we went kayaking out to Monkey Island (see other review), we stopped by Makito Restaurant on a tip from Bob. We sat on the upstairs deck outside, and got to just smell the breeze and enjoy the day. Fun vibe, great music, and great views. Like most of Puerto Rico, nobody is in a hurry, but the food is...

Our first and only time at El Makito was superb. After all day out with the family, we decided to give this restaurant by the sea a shot. Sat by the back balcony overlooking the sea for an additional treat. Our waiter went far and beyond to accommodate our daughter's hunger. She was desperately hungry and Victor rushed her order....

We had a friendly attentive waiter, who took six different orders without ever writing it down. I love that! The fish soup was huge and hearty, the mofongo delicious, my shrimp salad was pretty basic for 18 bucks, which seems to be the going price for so many meals here. It was great to sit outdoors, the place has a... More

Ask for a Lobster and mofongo there. So delicious, and very good prices. Seafood is the best there. Try an Arepa de COCO. you will love this one

I came to PR on a unexpected trip and always seek out great local cuisine; the kind that I cannot get where I live. In a quest to get great seafood, my uncle suggested El Makito. I ordered a whole Capitan fish and it was awesome!!! It was complemented with white rice, beans, "tostones" (fried plantain fritters) and a small... More

We didn't stay to eat though everything looked nice and clean inside. We ordered to go because we were going on a boating trip. However, the food was DELICIOUS. Packed neatly and the prices were fair. Would definitely eat in next time.

Took about a 30 min drive from Rio Mat to Naguabo. It was a Sunday afternoon so the Resturant was packed. One could sit inside in the AC or outside which afforded a nice view of the sunset and the bay. I would love to go back to try more of their menu items which looks great. I had a... More

The food here was amazing. The views were breathtaking, from the drive to the restaurant and our table. While seating and having drinks, we saw a shark off the balcony. The only restaurant that served Hennessey!! Loved the food, it was authentic and sooooo good!!
