This is my favorite restaurant in Puerto Rico. I look forward to the menu of fresh fish and appetizers. We will always dine here on every trip to Puerto Rico.

Lo unico fue que reserve por internet y cuando llegue al rest. La reservacion no existia, por suerte no estaba muy lleno y nos consiguieron una mesa rapido.

Outstanding food and service topped with an incredible view! We were in town visiting family and had heard so many great things about Salitre -- it did not disappoint. We'll be sure to come back next time around. Do yourself a favor and check out this gem that is Salitre Meson Costero!

Great experience. Went for Anniversary Dinner. I do not eat seafood at all!!! My boyfriend made me try coconut shrimp sooo good!!! He also had me try mahi mahi sticks rhey literally tastes like chicken fingers.

My boyfriend enjoyed his mofongo made from yuca with shrimp.

I truly enjoyed my arroz con habichuelas y churrasco.

Our waitress Ely was the nicest.

Passion fruit Margaritas Drinks were great.

Dessert was delicious.

Definitely going back!!!

Thanks Salitre!!!

The place is beautiful, by the beach, nice set up. I visited the place before and food was much better. First no seti (red papers filled with small fish) which is s typical dish for the place. Second, the red snapper (chillo) was tasteless, missing salt and way overcooked. Instead of enjoying a flaky fresh fish i ended up eating a hard, tasteless fish. Oh, the side used to be a dream; small potatoes with dill on top. Not anymore, still potatoes but no taste, look like ready purchased in a bag.
Bottom line, very disappointing.

Location views and service was wonderful.
Food was marginal and mediocre at best
Wine list was nice and very value oriented.
The restaurant ignored my open table reservation to which we showed up promptly and on time.
The manager did not honor reservation as there were too many walking ahead of us who were seated on a first come first serve basis.
When I demanded to be seated I was told they don’t always honor reservations at peak times and they take the open table app off line.
When I showed him my confirmation he said I’ll add you to the list and we then waited 35 minutes to be seated.
I will never go back

We drove 1.5 hours to Salitre. The food was adequate as were the portions. We sat outside and the view was nice. I feel that for all the hype I was expecting more. I probably would not make the drive there again as I can get the same quality closer to home but recommend the experience at least once

We arrived pretty late on a Sunday evening, so it wasn't very busy. The service was a little slow, and while the food was ok, we felt a little like we were bothering them by being there. They didn't say anything and acted very nice, but it was just a feeling that I had while we were there. Overall, it was an ok experience, but I feel as though it would have been better if we had gone during a busier time.

Waitresses had absolutely no intention of providing decent service (much less a good one). Restaurant don't have jugs to bring iced water to the table. Kitchen lacked half of the things listed in the menu. Paella was horrible.
This is the second time we go there and the experience was very similar both times.
No more.

Business meal for a party of seven. We made reservations thru OpenTable.

When we arrived at 6:00pm the patio/ terrace area was almost full, but inside only a couple of tables with guests.

We ordered drinks and appetizers. Then we order main course, mofongos and cazuelas were main selections. The food took more than 30 minutes, but everything arrived hot and what was ordered.

Overall good diner and service.

The view at this restaurant, when seated outside, is phenomenal. It looks like the waves are about to crash into the restaurant; that's how close you are to the water. The outside seating area is also covered, which is a big plus. However, the service was very slow and timing of food service was awkward (salad was brought with dinner, after having sat with no food for more than 30 minutes). In addition, for a restaurant with this view and these prices, a few very basic touches were missing. For example, some effort to control flies when the food came out, such as a citron candle, would have been much appreciated. Still, that view is one of the best I have ever seen at a restaurant.

WE WAITED 90 MINUTES FOR OUR FOOD!!!!!! That's right. From the time we ordered to the time our lunch came, it was an hour and a half. We were there for almost 2 and a half hours total. It's a beautiful location but 90 minutes is totally unacceptable. And they didn't even apologize. They thought that was normal restaurant behavior. Never again.

Amazing Restaurant

Memorable dinner. The view at the outdoor tables is outstanding. The entire atmosphere is breathtaking. Our server Dariana was amazing, always taking good care of us and always looking for ways to please us. She is unique and really focus on customer service. The food was superb, fresh, flavorful and the chef went beyond my expectations. Five stars isn't fair for this restaurant. If you are in Arecibo is a must visit this restaurant.

Cena memorable. La vista en las mesas al aire libre es excepcional. Todo el ambiente es impresionante. Nuestro camarero Dariana era increíble, siempre teniendo buen cuidado de nosotros y siempre buscando maneras de complacer a nosotros. Ella es única y realmente se centran en el servicio al cliente. La comida era excelente, fresca, sabrosa y el chef fue más allá mis expectativas. Cinco estrellas no es justo para este restaurante. Si estás en Arecibo es imprescindible visitar este restaurante.
