We ate here our first night while staying at the El Conquistador. It is just beyond the main entrance. Fun funky atmosphere and excellent food. Most food is wood fire grilled and is on par with anything you can get in the states. Try the local beer (Old Harbor Cocqui is wonderful) or the island style rum drinks. Three of... More

We stopped here after visiting Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve. Very popular place and parking is scarce. We ended up parking on the side of the road, around 100 ft past the restaurant - that was the only downside to the place. This review is exclusively for the food. We got the mofongo relleno with mahi mahi and... More

We read all the glowing reviews and couldn't wait to go! It was a Tuesday, but we called ahead anyway to make a reservation and was told we didn't need one, so didn't make one. We arrive and there is a 30 minute wait for a table. My advice is to definitely make a reservation no matter what. Our vacation... More

La estacion was a very good restaurant! We had lots of Puerto Rican food here...pinchos, tostones, mofongo, flan...all were the best of their kinds that we had in Puerto Rico! The atmosphere was great too...I think it would have been better if we had been allowed to sit outside. It looked pretty sweet! The only downside was that it was... More

The atmosphere is great. Other than that it was horrible. It took almost an hour to get a table when there where tables available. I had the lobster mofongo and my husband had the churrasco mofongo. They look amazing but had no taste whatsoever and it was way too greasy. The waitress never brought us our drinks and was no... More

If you're in Fajardo and want a night out of great food; a fantastic staff; and a casual 'local' feel - then this is the place to go. We've been to PR twice and on both trips we've eaten here. The first time - just my wife and I. Then, this trip with all of our adult children and their... More

The service was wonderful - we had multiple people helping take our orders, bring our food, and refill our drinks and all were extremely friendly and willing to explain any questions you may have about the menu. I got the papaya salad which was delicious, a great mojito, and a pulled pork empanadilla special. Everything was delicious and they source... More
