We stopped in for a late afterrnoon, post flight dinner. Of course the place wasn't busy and we sat right on the water. Service was typical Latin American, slow but friendly. The hummus was surprisingly good. The shrimp wrap was tasty and the shrimp mofungo was excellent. The house signature rum drink was also excellent, served in a carved coconut.... More

Accidentally came across this place 5 years ago and keep coming back year after year. Small quaint outdoor restaurant with the best view you'd ever want. Great food and wonderful service. It's a few blocks from the main street, Isle Verde, but within walking distance. We love this place.

We were staying at the Ritz Carlton and wanted to try some Puerto Rican food. After reading the reviews we decided to give this place a try. And it was totally worth it. First we were a bit skeptical about the streets on the way there, (it is about a 10 minutes walk from the Ritz) but it was fine.... More

We stayed in Puerto Rico on a Thursday night prior to a flight Friday to the USVI. At the pool bar and at the hotel front desk I asked the same question I ask all over the world when I travel. "If you could go dinner tonight - where would you go?" The answer was the same from both people... More

This place's level of formality did not command the prices on the menu. However. 1) Staff was very friendly, though a bit slow. 2) Food was delicious. And 3) nice waves breaking below you on the dock. Try the Playita salad - scrumptious plus mashed plantains to fill you up so it makes a meal.

Eight of us arrived at La Playita around 1:30 on Monday for lunch. I think we overwhelmed them, as service was slow, but the lunches were very good. I ordered a fish in plantain dish (and I'll not be correct but will try anyway in naming), Tostones? fried and mashed plantain with fish in the center, it was tasty and... More

A short walk from the major Isla Verde Hotels this little gem offers casual dining right on the water-- a little high tide splash over possible on the lower deck. Menu ranges from Burgers and Wraps to a solid list of moderately priced entrees. Drinks are terrific-- try CocoLoco or Margaritas. The Burgers and Wraps are served with excellent French... More
