Fantastic spot, don't miss it!

We tried the Munfango (spelling) It is fried, mashed plantation with your choice of meat. Fabulous...mashed plantation tastes just like mashed potatoes. Really, really good.

I was with family there for dinner. The lobster was a little bit over-grilled but the atmosphere was so cozy and magic, drinks were nice and shrimps were delicious.๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Maybe we caught this place on an off night, but I won't be back. We did not have a reservation, but arrived pretty early. Of note, if at Waldorf, take a cab. It's on a busy street and there are packs of wild dogs in Fajardo. Restaurant was half empty, but we're told we had to wait since no reservation.... More

Great restaurant specializing in grilled food. The refer to their style as Nuyorican - blending Puerto Rico and New York. Decor is eclectic and comfortable, and service was helpful and pleasant. Food was excellent - the lobster arepe was simply stunning.

Barbeque place in an old filing station. Good ribs .. Strong mojitos. Cool atmosphere. Not much parking, though, but worth a visit.

Loved this place! NIce find in Fajardo just outside the main entrance to El Conquistador. The atmosphere was immediately inviting and comfortable with lots of string lights, gorgeous tropical plants, eclectic furniture and a cozy bar area. Loved the little touches likes the twine-tied napkins. Dishes were fresh and flavorful, and portions were generous. Try the BBQ sampler with a... More

The vibe was nice laid back with music playing. The food was great service as well. I made sure to stop here before I left the area back to San Juan.

Our family of five loved this eating place. The food was great. The service was fun and atmosphere was paradise. We did not make reservation but only had to wait for 45 minutes. They had a great lounge area as we waited for our table. My kids ate the Mofongo and Pinchos. Truly a memorable evening with the Fam.

Had dinner with my wife and daughter, the crew is very nice and the food is 6 out of 10, if i compare it to other restaurants that sell the same kind of food. Way too expensive for what you get... the skirt stake was dry, but the snapper my wife had was better
