Restaurants in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico

Most of the restaurants in Puerto Rico resort are in the colossal shopping centre but there are options by the marinas and the beach, and good spots for dinner tucked away amongst the apartments.

Puerto Rico Shopping Centre
The Puerto Rico shopping centre is stuffed with restaurants selling resort cuisine: Big steaks, garlic prawns, enormous ice creams etc. Most serve perfectly good food although margins are squeezed by the number of places.
Most have a tout outside so we’d encourage you to choose a place with friendly staff, plenty of customers and obvious pride in their food. Walk away from any restaurant with an aggressive or unpleasant front man.

Agua la Perra
This mini version of Puerto Rico just behind the Puerto Base marina (get to it by walking under the road just by the Marina Suites apartments) is worth the walk if you want good food.
The little shopping centre just up the hill from the marina has several of Puerto Rico’s best restaurants. The Cosi Como Sei Italian is currently top of Tripadvisor’s list of 138 restaurants (there must be lots more) in Puerto Rico.
Just next door is El Cenador grill: a low-key restaurant popular with Canarians who work in the resort as well as with repeat visitors. It serves great steak and has a famously friendly atmosphere.

The Marinas
The Grill Costa Mar in Puerto Base gets good reviews and so does the Taj Palace. Bambus Bar is popular with the Scandinavian crowd.

In the resort
Small restaurants dotted around the resort are often good quality as don’t get people walking past and have to attract them with good food and service. Ask around at your accommodation and in the reception.

Up the hill
The Europa Centre up the West Hill isn’t as busy as Puerto Rico CC but has great views of the resort. The El Toro Negro restaurant is always busy and serves big steaks. MIA Restaurante Pizzeria also gets good reviews
