For me this is an overrated restaurant. There are plenty of other restaurants around Joyuda with better quality of food. Been there several times and yet to have a good experience with the food.

This restaurant has a typical Criollo menu, is good for business meetings but not for a tourist looking for good tasting food. There are so many rest along the Joyuda area that you better continue down the 102 road .

One of the best restaurant in Western Puerto Rico! Consistent fresh seafood, excellent service (run by father and family), view of the Mayagüez Bay and has parking. They serve fish broth and crostini as appetizers (free). Also good to order out. Try empanadillas de langosta...More

This is a legendary place. González Seafood has been around since dirt was just sand, and there's a good reason: excellent food, generous portions, lots of free stuff like a plate of bruchetta and cups of a nice seafood chowder. Service can be iffy, as...More

Great restaurant. The owner is always there, very friendly and eager to please. They always have fresh, local fish. Very crowded during the weekends, so that must mean that there's something good going on! The service is good and, even though it's advertised as a...More

I had cravings for conch & octopus in salad mode (not stewed) with side mofongo... Got more than expected. Even the onion in the salad was good! If you like octopus and conch, dare you to try this one...!!

Although is not a formal place, it's very familiar and the food worth going. I am sure they will try to accommodate your party but definitively try to organize something beforehand
