After kayaking to Gri Gri lagoon we had lunch at Cafe de Paris. The restaurant is very plain, however the food was great. We had the lobster which was very good and inexpensive.

Went to Rio San Juan looking for a good restaurant, found Cafe de Paris. I was a bit skeptical at first, but was surprisingly good. Great service from owner and friendly staff! Only bad thing I can say that they don't accept credit cards.
