I stumbled upon this little place on a corner in Isabela and was thoroughly impressed. After a long day of traveling I found an excellent order of wings was just what I needed. The next night in this beautiful place offered me the opportunity to bring my family for dinner and again we had an excellent meal. The owner is... More

We attempted to go on a saturday night around 7:30, but they were already full for the evening (( think they close at 9) so the next day we called to make a reservation and this worked out much better. They also are cash only. The menu has all the local dishes as well as some burgers and wraps. Very... More

Heading east from Jobos beach, turn left before road climbs into Isabelaand you'll be on a laid-back beach road frequented by locals on the weekends. On the right at the start of the beach is El Anzuelo. Outdoor terrace with beach view, friendly staff and quality food at moderate prices make this a find. Seafood, burgers and PR specialties plus...

Awesome location, very clean and great food. Loved the owner's tips and advice. Open air atmosphere. Was very fresh seafood and everything was made to order. Will repeat business.

As "locales", we like to visit Isabela about once a year (during the surf competitions). We found this place through Tripadvisor and the reviews are on point (at least the good ones). We had the fried shrimp with. coconut sauce, the mahi mahi with "tostones" and for dessert we had the "cocada" (best coconut flan I've ever had). All these... More

What keeps me coming back to this place again and again is the variety of fresh fish they offer. Every time I go they have something different to try, could be mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, kingfish, whatever the local fishermen are catching at the moment, always fresh and never disappoints, served with your choice of toppings. They also offer killer... More

The just moved to a new much larger space. Easy to find since now they are at the entrance of Villa Pesquera, short drive from Villas Del Mar Hau. The service is super friendly, Ari and her staff make you feel welcome. The menu has something for every one. Margaritas and the Suntan cocktails are excellent. Don't forget dessert, the... More

The food was very good and the service was friendly. They will be moving soon to a more appealing location which in my opinion is likely to elevate this restaurant into the excellent category. We had the fish empanadillas as an appetiser which were excellent, so were their fish broth, stuffed mashed plantains (muffing relleno) and burgers. The Pina Colada... More

Very cool restaurant with fresh, healthy food. I always find it hard to find vegetarian food in PR; I was pleasantly surprised to find options here. This little corner is amazing, and the owners provide the best service!

Ideal for couples or small families. NOT for large groups. The food is always fresh, prepared at the moment. We use local fish and seafood. It is located at the entrance of Villa Pesquera, next to the condominuim Isabela Beach Court, before the basketball court. Scenic view of the Atlantic Ocean. Come and enjoy the sea breeze!!!
