“Holy cow, the cow is good!”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

Came across this gem courtesy of our other fellow Trip Advisor brethren. It was a little tricky to find, but so worth the walking in circles. This place is very unassuming from the outside, but the food and presentation is top notch. You know it's good when you see other chefs eating there. From the owner running food and taking time to greet patrons to the local patrons giving marriage advice to us, a newly engaged couple, what a fantastic experience. Get the steak and stick around for the mojitos!

“Best Service Ever”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

We had the pleasure of stopping at Punto de Vista and meeting the owner Mike and him and his staff gave our group the best service ever. The mofongo was absolutely delicious and the drinks very good and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend all visitors to try this place just once. You will not be dissapointed.

“Lives up to the hype!”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Wow- Went there to try the Mofongo based on other reviews, was so delicious. boyfriend had the Churrasco steak which was also delish. Service is really great. The owner himself was our server. The drinks were a bargain. best strawberry mojito. 2 for 1 all day and they are fresh and hand made. we loved it so much we went back there 2 days later for the lunch specials which is about 1/2 price off regular dinner menu. LOVED IT and will definitely return to this place when back in PR!
