We stopped here for lunch on a sunny, warm day and ate outdoors. The food was super fresh, and the service was excellent. The bartender/server was such a sweetheart and the wine list was respectable (not easy to find decent wine in PR). I would definitely return for dinner, hearing it is not only yummy but very charming.

You can have lovely Mafungo, Amerillos, etc. if you ask for the Puerto Rican menu. They are right on the beach, have good drinks and a cover-up for your bathing suit is just fine.

Went to UVVA for dinner, right on the beach but too windy to sit outside. It was dark anyway. Not much in the way of ambiance, dimly lit and shabby. I had to use my cell phone flash to read the menu and see the food. Waitress was not very helpful. The food was disappointing, the arancini was mushy, the... More

This is a re-review of Uvva from February of 2015. After reading my previous review, I felt the need to share the improvement in food quality and service. Just last week at this time I was at Uvva having a beer and lunch after spending time on the beach immediately in front of the building. Having been there 4 days... More

We were strolling on the beach and found this little place. I had the pulled pork sliders which was actually a starter. There were 4 little sandwiches with very crispy potato slices piled on top. Delicious. My husband had salmon with black ink risotto which he really liked.

Had the french toast embedded with blueberries and a plate of fresh food. Everything was good and fresh, and the staff was friendly. Coffee was ok; too dilute with milk. The view wss amazing, since this restaurant was right on the beach.

Service it's good, food is awesome (even though it's a little bit expensive). It's a romantic place, better when it's good weather because you can sit and have dinner at the beach. I recommend the white sangria, one of the best I've ever had.

Stopped by this nice little find walking the beach when we first arrived in Puerto Rico. Nice little tiki bar right on the beach. Hit happy hour, very reasonably priced. Looked at the menu for lunch and dinner. We didn't order anything to eat as we had eaten a late lunch. But the menu looked nice, expensive but nice. I... More
