Local Seafood at its best

Between the four of us we had a large queen snapper and a large lobster and it was one of the best seafood meals I have ever had. The snapper was not fried as is typically done here, it was seasoned and grilled to perfection, as was the lobster. Jason explained everything so well and our 2 girls... read more

Stayed at El Conquistador for my birthday and of course there is no way u can make three meals there so we ventured out. The place was packed but we managed to get a table, the owner greeted us at the entrance which I thought was nice. The place was full of out of towners and we were the only... More

We chose one fish dish and one vegetarian; each was a plank load, a huge amount. The fish was excellent (glad I remember how to bone a fish), though the Caesar salad was a little salty for our taste. Fresh food, friendly service.

I barely had a chance to glance at the menu completely because as soon as the waiter came in with the specials I quickly picked the grilled snapper- and I don’t regret it! The sides accompanied it was a papaya green salad and a side of Arepa (YUUUMMMY). Everything was DELICIOUS and fulfilling; yet not so heavy. My best friend... More

We stopped here on a whim to get food before going on a kayaking trip to the biobay. It was our second night in Puerto Rico -- our first full day -- and this place was a welcome introduction to the food and ambience we came to love there. This place was excellent and very well-located for a trip to... More

We eat at La Estacion each year we return to PR. The menu is always different with repeat items each year. It has excellent service and interesting décor. The staff is very helpful and attentive. The seafood is excellent and so are all the other dishes. If you go home hungry, that's your fault. Don't forget dessert.

Just returned from our vacation in Fajardo. This old and converted gas station offers a unique and a casual outdoor dining experience. The staff were excited and passionate about providing us a great experience. We could tell that they truly loved what they were doing. The benches are a little uncomfortable but with the pillows helped out a lot. The... More

We came here in 2015 and again in 2016. My boyfriend loves the lobster. I like the bbq chicken, rice, and beans. Red sangria is good. Ambiance is good.

had a coconu t margarita that was really good & strong. swordfish was one of the best I have ever eaten. friendly service. sometimes they don't have churrasco, which is very strange since everything is done on the grill & this is one of PR specialties. had pork which was a little tough
