We learned about this place while searching for homes online on goolgle earth. Online it looked like a neat place to try, and it was not a let down. The parking is a bit lacking for the patrons that come for lunch. But there is extra parking on the street and at the beach next door. It is an ocean side restaurant but you only get the better views when the deck side seating is not reserved as it was on our visit. But overall the atmosphere was nice and cozy. We always travel the caribbean during the holidays for our anniversary, and we always search for a nice lobster dinner. This place had a great option with the lobster mofongo and its delicious bowl made from the mashed plaintains. It was cooked pretty much perfect and was very tasty. They have a small bar that has some great Puerto rican rums on site as well.

Gonzales sea food is a very special place it has a wide variety of dishes and the presentation makes it look delicious and the service of the waiters is fabulous they want to make sure the food u ask for is presented exactly as request the wine pairing has improved greatly very resonable prices the owner Poi will pass by the table and assures you have the quality of his product to consume in asking how is it and has a brief conversation with you very family type ombiance and casual. Medium cost range.

Took our friends from Mississippi for a taste of some great seafood on the West side of Puerto Rico and this Restaurant is one of your the best on this side of the island. This was their first visit ever to Puerto Rico. And I’m glad to say they enjoyed it as much as we had.

Numerous people recommended this restaurant to me because they had excellent seafood at an affordable price. I was a little disappointed. However, the staff was great. Our waitress was friendly and prompt and the owner went around greeting people at all the tables. I really enjoyed the welcoming attitude of the staff. My wife ordered the Chillo Entero, which was huge and wonderful. I ordered the grilled lobster, which was a nice size but over cooked. I would really like to try this restaurant again because their staff was great and it might of just been an off day for my lobster.
