We visited The Social Justice, now "La Justica de Don Pino" on the occasion of the day after the proprietor's 45th wedding anniversary -- and the 45th anniversary of this long-standing local favorite restaurant.

Amor was in the air, as our local friends traded jokes about an ingredient in one of the types of ceviche that is supposed to give a man the strength of many donkeys (in bed). After much laughter and refreshing drinks of mineral water with lemon and lime, our main courses arrived. Decadent lobster with garlic for me and my husband, ceviche and breaded fish for our friends.

The owner came over to say hello, and I am pretty sure his grandsons or other family were the waiters. His beautiful daughter visiting from Mexico City came by and he pulled her over to sing a song for us, a Capella.

We got advice on love while eating lobster...a magical evening of food, friends and family.

Stuffed fish fillet with a seafood mix. Yuck, it was a frozen bag mix, with some weird cream sauce on top of it. Will not return.

As others have mentioned this place is now called La Justicia de Don Pino. Pretty easy to find near the big Chedraui supermarket in the middle of the island. We walked from the other end of the island and despite the place being about to close we were served an amazing meal - grilled fish and some shrimp tacos. Portions are big and tasty. Make sure you check opening times first though - especially if you're walking!

So this place is now called La Justicia de Don Pino. Our cab driver knew how to get there. It was in a neighborhood towards the center of the island. We went because of previous reviews of previous location that promised some of the best seafood ever! Well, it's true. AMAZING. We had ceviche mixto (with octopus, shrimp, conch, and others?) and it was great. We also had conch in garlic sauce. And it was amazing. Travelers and locals alike (but more locals) were in the place on the night we were. People were friendly and it was very affordable, even considering the cab fare. I would love to eat here again someday.

Now called La Justicia de Don Pino. We had a great meal here. Fish stuffed with seafood (conch & shrimp). So good! It took a bit to find because they had moved and changed their name but it was worth the search.
