In el yaque you can find different restaurants, most of them are too expensive and not as good as you expected. This places is good is not too expensive like one called "Beach bar" and is a way better, so I recommended you this options if you want to have a good dinner in the beach El Yaque!

I stayed at Hotel Casa Rita and every night I went with my girlfriend for a beach bar burguer, ( gourmet burguer quality) and some drinks, its amazing and in the middle of the beach, the staff is very friendly, although the one thing that I didn't like was the beach dogs looking for food, they should put little doors...

Shark is a good choice for local sea food. It has variety of local dishes. This is an open place, in front of the beach, so be prepared not to have air conditioning. At peak seasons and weekends is pack, so be patient. The reward at the end is a safe and good food, low price.

The place was packed but not overcrowded when me and my wife got there, we were received by an unfriendly sweaty nervous waiter who tried to rid himself of us by suggesting to look for a different place, we insisted and eventually got a table, it was constant hard work to get anyones attention, bit by tedious bit we got...

Strong points - good food and fish , shrimps, fresh juices. To take in consideration - service could be faster, with smiles, and when it accommodates persons from Europe, it doesn't mean that we are all rich. Our last bill was a little bit.....

This place is the best in El Yaque. I have tried almost all restaurants and with all of them, they have a challenge with supplies so that a lot of the things on the menu are not available. Besides that none of them is really reliable when it comes to opening times. They close or open whenever they feel like.... More

It's a normal place at the Yaque beach front, the food is nice nothing special but for that kind of restaurant. We asked for crispy chicken and crispy fish both were nice. The price is average. If you're in El Yaque don't miss it.

Food was good, definately fine for the type of establishment and the setting (on the beach) was nice but our fish was a little on the tough side. Daughter loved the pasta with pesto. Kitchen is on view from the restaurant which inspires confidence.
