The Perla Del Mar is situated in the seawall of the old fort. It is an easy 10 minute walk from the Queen Emma bridge along well lit streets. The dining area overlooks the Caribbean Sea and is covered; and the noise of the waves breaking on the rocks is very romantic. The menu had a wide selection but featured... More

Great place for a lunch, they offer a 10 dollar lunch (choice of chicken, fish or pork) including 1 drink. Don't expect a culinar miracle, but the price/value for the lunch is good. The view over the sea is great.

Our waiter disappeared at times and it took a very long time to receive the food. He also made a mistake with our order. Fortunately, the food was very tasty.

Very nice place, food is really tasty and well serve. the mix grill is awesome. Also the red snapper is really tasty, try it and you will see. The location is one of the nicest and is kept almost in is original state. (born and raised in this neighborhood) Highly recommend it.

This restaurant came highly recommended so we made a reservation for a weeknight evening so we would be sure to get in. After being seated at a different table then they had reserved for us due to a table full of smokers seated at the next table, we were never offered a menu or a cocktail. We waited patiently for...

We ate dinner here at sunset and it was amazing. Service, presentation and taste were all excellent. It is tucked away behind some buildings on the water so a little harder to find but worth the search!

This place came to us highly recommended, so we tried it on one of the first nights. The setting was perfect, sitting on the deck and listening to the waves crash the pier. The service was okay... Not spectacular, but wouldn't stop me from returning. The food was above average, as were the prices. Two people had the red snapper,... More

My plate was dirty and I had to wipe it off before I ate. Looked like old crusted sauce. The risotto and shrimp was very good but the grouper filet was tough and dry. We had 3 different waiter come to our table. The staff is nice. Atmosphere is also very nice. The bathroom needs an upgrade.

Partially perched on stilts above the ocean, great ambiance, nice sea views. We went for lunch. Service was friendly, drinks arrived quickly but the food not that fast. They have a huge menu so I imagine they had to get the kitchen started up as we were the first people there. My wife had the seafood casserole in lobster sauce.... More
