Small fishing villages and family-run fishing businesses are still abundant in Puerto Rico, so it’s a perfect place to visit if you want fresh seafood. Restaurants all over the island, from small roadside stands to large gourmet restaurants, offer dishes such as red snapper, shrimp, octopus, dorado (mahi mahi) and chapin. Visit Puerto Rico and try some of these mouthwatering seafood restaurants.

La Pescadería in Humacao is a great place for a relaxing lunch or dinner with drinks. Feel the ocean breeze as you sit on their cozy deck and gaze at the water, or go inside and beat the heat in their air conditioned dining room. Try the catch of the day or munch away on some fish tacos with mango salsa.

Another great seafood place with a view of the Caribbean is El Roble in Salinas. This is one of those places you absolutely must try while in Puerto Rico.

Located on the northern coast of the island near the village of Arecibo, the outdoor seating of Salitre Mesón Costera is literally steps from the Atlantic Ocean. Try the smokey grilled octopus as a starter, then enjoy one of their amazing fish and seafood dishes. The black paella is a little odd in appearance, but incredible in flavor. Also try any dish with ceti when it’s in season – a small transparent and very tasty fish.
