Aguadilla: Some culinary surprises

teezeetoo | Mar 6, 2011 03:19 AM

While the beaches in Aguadilla and Isabella are delightful, this isn't a culinary paradise. Yet there are some surprises. D'Grillade in Aguadilla is an excellent, upscale restaurant with a great bar. I had amazing Ahi tuna tartare, housemade butter, fabulous margaritas, and as good a jambalaya as I've found anywhere. At a little hotel called Ciela del Mar, we had delicious lobster sopa (kind of a cioppino, full of excellent local langostino) as well as fresh shrimp and first-rate, if simply prepared, red snapper. A fine mofongo as well as an excellent inexpensive and fresh lunch buffet at Brisas de Atlantico. A little breakfast place called El Mesoneron down past the pink presbyterian church, maybe 5 blocks, actually makes an omelet that isn't tough and brown, as well as fine coffee. It isn't San Juan (no Marmalade or Laurel) but you can get dinner!
