Every time I'm in Puerto Rico this is my first stop no matter where on the island. Food is always fresh and staff is always great. The mofongo is to die for, I want that for my last meal.

Had dinner there last night. Food was hot, fresh and delicious. I had mojitos (the owner mixed passion fruit with coconut for me), salad and fish tacos. It was definitely my favorite meal out in Isabela. Would definitely recommend.

Had a plate of 2 fish tacos. Super fresh and good- Wasabi mayo is the added twist. Shrimp roll up, same thing good and fresh shrimp cooked just right. Coconut flan for desert was very good. Passion fruit sangria was a hit. Thanks for a good dinner.

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
