This is located in a small slightly funky (in a good way) hotel between two beaches in the Isla Verde section of PR.

About ½ of the bar/restaurant the area is covered (but with no wall between the room and the ocean) and the rest is open to the sun & ocean. The patio literally juts out into the sea. It is a really pretty and cool location.

The small rectangular bar seats about a dozen. There are about 10 tables inside and another 8 or so outside.

Service is island friendly and is at island speed (slow).

Live music several nights per week adds to the ambiance.

The food is a nice mix of Puerto Rican specialties and European cuisine. Skip the pizzas and try some Mofungo or fresh fish.

They have about 28 different beers. The selection is probably the second best on the Island. Highlights for me included Matilda, Juliet, Honkers, Turbo Dog, Blue Star, Chimay, etc. After a week of drinking the local light lager, this was heaven sent!

It was previously reported this establishment had a deletion of craft beers, sadly that is no longer true. It does have an awesome view with cool ocean breezes.
