Food is amazing. Great views. The restaurant hangs over the water. Several large fish swim underneath and they jump out of the water if you drop food to them. But forget the fish and the view. The food is really good and really good price/quality ratio.

We went to several places looking for fried red snapper. Most places we went to did not have any. Found this place on TripAdvisor. Have to say it was the best fried red snapper I've had. Beautiful view overlooking the ocean. Service was a little slow but it was okay as we were not in a hurry. It was well... More

Surprise find! Great patio by the shore. A bit of slow service but cordial and welcoming. Will come again for the crab rice with beans.

I highly recommend the rest. food is outstanding service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. I live in Cayey and I often like to visit the rest for a good meal. You know it good when you have local in a rest.

Plain and simple: Nice view, with the Caribbean sea singing to you Literally. Good food at affordable prices. I ordered Chillo relleno de Langosta...and the portion was huge. Tostones de Mapén and Arriz con Juelles: delicious.

After a long day spent on Gilligan's Island, we stopped at Monserrate for for dinner. When we arrived only one couple was present. This is usually a bad sign. But we stayed the coarse and sat down at the waters edge. What a terrific view. The ocean, the sounds of waves breaking on the reef, and giant Tarpon splashing below..... More

Why not take a nice ride to La Parguera, or Jotyudas, or Guanajibo for the best seafood in the area? Why staying in Ponce for sea food? Please, don't!

After leaving San Juan, we headed south to Ponce to see the rest of the island. I was looking forward to the REAL conch salad that I hadn't had in over 30 years and La Monserrate delivered. My husband had fried shrimp and we both had fried plantains. We chose to sit outside since the weather was nice. Our table... More
