The most famous restaurant on the island, El Divino Niño serves fresh seafood and cold beers on  Providencia's Southwest Beach. The restaurant is a local institution. It has been here for over 20 years and it's a favorite place for both local and visitors, especially for drinks at sundown on Fridays and Saturdays.  

Specialities and Highlights

It would be a mistake to go to El Divino Niño and not order one of its marvelous seafood items. The restaurant is famous for serving huge portions. The humbly dish named "plato mixto para dos" serves enough lobster, conch, shrimp, crab and fish to feed a small army. While waiting for your food, you can enjoy a drink at your table on the beach viewing the sunset and/or take a dip in the crystal clear sea in front of the restaurant.
