Tel: 787 722 0665's insider take:

At the end of Calle Fortaleza in a spacious, brightly lit blue space, Aguaviva anchors SoFo and gives visitors a taste of the district's energy. The restaurant focuses on what islands do best (but often don't, given the amount of pork and sausage you'll see): freshly caught and innovatively prepared seafood. Starters include a ceviche tasting, with novel concoctions like fresh tuna and salmon ceviche, and mahimahi-mango ceviche—all served with crispy, savory tostones (fried plantains). Entrées are often tinged with Latin spices: barbecued camarones gigantes (jumbo shrimp) over basmati rice; grilled tuna with herbed tamales; and seared jumbo scallops with paella and chorizo. You should prepare to shell out a bit for your feast; dinner for two can cost close to $100.

Open daily 6 to 10 pm.
