My husband and i loved this place, it was by far the best meal we had on our trip. It was reasonable with a relaxing atmosphere. The fish tacos are incredible! We also got two virgin pina colladas which were good. It's a little tricky to find, you'll see flags with the restaurant name on the building, it's INSIDE the hotel and you take the stairs/elevator up to the 5th floor.

Hi Amanda K,

I agree we have excellent fish tacos (Caribbean style) & our Pina Coladas are always good (with or without rum). The flags were only temporary but we are easy to find as we are on the rooftop of the Hotel Milano. Please stop by on future visits to beautiful Puerto Rico.

Ciao

Amazing food that should cost more. A Sunday afternoon respite from shopping on the streets below. What everyone says about mofongo and the mojitos is very accurate. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Shannon was great. Friendly, helpful, and attentive. We sat out on the patio was nice and sunny with a little bit of a breeze perfect for lunch. Spouse had the shrimp mafongo with the red sauce was very good. Daughter had the shrimp mafango with the garlic sauce really good. Either sauce is great just depends on your taste preferences. I had the fish tacos which are excellent. Some of the best I've ever had. The mafongo was the best we had in PR. Would recommend and return.

I was here on 10-31-15. I was here last year around the same date and decided to give it another try after a good lunch last year. I had the Shrimp Tostones Relleno and since there is 2 for 1 Mojitos I got a Mango and a Watermelon Mojito. Sebatian did a great job with the Mojitos as they were super good. The food was really good as well, this is something I've never had before and was really pleased with this choice. I sat at the bar so I can watch the football game on their TV and also enjoyed a couple of beers after dinner. Hopefully if I get back to San Juan I will come again to have lunch here. The people here are friendly and I would recommend this place to anyone.

We had an all day trip to Old San Juan and had lunch at "Punto De Vista". We tried 4 different dishes and their "Mofongo" was the best. We were there after 2 p.m. so we got to enjoy 2 for 1 Mojito's which was delicious and the staff was friendly too.
