The food was just yum...We stayed at El Con and it's just ten minutes drive from there. We were seated inside and the host was really warm and nice. We ordered Whole Fish, Mofongos and chicken charcoal grilled. It's was amazingly tasty that I would definitely return to PR to have their food. We had to wait for almost 40... More

This place is fun. This place has great drinks. We liked the food. Maybe it's grown too fast, but the service was slow and disorganized when we were there. Fix that and they'll be even better.

The food here was great, and a little cheaper than the so-so food at El Con. We ate inside, and it is very small, but it looks like there is a lot of seating outside. Service was good as well.

One of THE BEST dinners I've had in a LONG time!! The chicken wings, burger, pina coladas, and shrimp monfongo. OMG!!!!!! The food was so good I want to book a flight back to PR just to eat dinner. I live in NYC, but I'm seriously considering it!

All we can say is, wow! This place keeps it simple, and as a result is simply superb. We loved everything we ordered. Tried mofongo for the first time -- quite tasty. The barbecue was fantastic, and the drinks were so fresh and delicious. If you are in Fajardo, or staying at the hotel next store -- this place is... More

We ate at La Estacion with our two kids on a Thursday night. Everything about the experience was perfectly executed by the wait staff and management at the restaurant. The food was excellent, the service superior, and the prices were reasonable. Parking was a bit of a challenge but manageable. Watch out for the fast traffic on the street -... More

We had our 7 and 9 year old kids. All 4 of us enjoyed an excellent home made meal that tasted like we were in someone's home. It was a Sunday night so we enjoyed their roast pork. Fajardo was a bit " unorganized" to me and I was grateful for an excellent dinner in a fun atmosphere with my... More

We were surprised at the great service since we heard service could be on island time in Puerto Rico & this was our first night dining out. We arrived later at 9:20 PM after our biobay tour and were seated quickly & had an attentive waiter. We both had the shrimp & fish monfongo which was good. The mojitos were... More

My husband and I have eaten here before. Very good lobster! We were disappointed to arrive and find out they were closed on a day the website and Tripadvisor app said they were to be open. Great place to eat just make sure you call before you go.

On a girls' weekend getaway, 7 of us were staying at Las Casitas Village/El Conquistador in Fajardo, Puerto Rico & wanted to try the local cuisine. Upon reading all of the positive recommendations for La Estacion on TripAdvisor, couldn't wait to try this place! The concierge at Las Casitas made our reservation for 8:00 pm on Saturday night (April 5th),... More
