Long Description:
This is a family owned business...and beans and rice and tortillas are served family style with your entree. Although most people order the lobster, other seafood dishes are also available including shrimp and ceviche.
Yelp (visit link) adds:

"La Perlita is a lobster restaurant that has been family run for the last 40 years at the corner of Arpón & Barracuda in Puerto Nuevo.… Arpón is the first left hand turn as you enter under the Puerto Nuevo arch. Barracuda is one of only two streets in Puerto Nuevo that connect the main highway to the ocean in this village.

With over 20 lobster restaurants to choose from, why this one? Honest lobsters at honest prices in a beautiful dining room. La Perlita has LIVE lobsters - no frozen crap for them. Unlike all other places in Puerto Nuevo, they bring you the lobster to your table to choose which you want cooked for you.

Too many of the restaurants rely on ignorant Gringos who don't understand quality lobsters. They buy undersized (illegal) lobsters and then sell them as "half tails". Those places have hucksters on the street promising 6-10 1/2 tails and a pitcher of margaritas for some ridiculous price. What you get is puny little 1/2 tails that have been frozen - Not good food and not good for the lobster population in the Pacific.

La Perlita has a full bar and English speaking staff. They serve all their meals Puerto Nuevo style which is deep fat fried lobsters with bowls of beans, rice, salsa, drawn butter and handmade flour tortillas. La Perlita will cook your lobster any way you want, if you don't like it deep fat fried. They have a very delicious lobster bisque that is included in the price. ...and for the Gringos who think all Mexican restaurants are only about the chips and salsa - they have bottomless chips and salsa for you."
