Great, friendly spot with a cool vibe. Liked the music and the patio layout. Mofongo was awesome as was a "pig wing" BBQ pork appetizer. Pedro, our server, was excellent and attentive. Loved the white sangria. Yum. Highly recommend!

I'm spreading the love! What a great restaurant. We stayed at the El Conquistador, so if you're staying there, this is a no brainer. Make a reservation though - the place gets filled. Sat outside - a little warm, that's Puerto Rico. But a nice atmosphere. The food was very good. There were two of us. We had the special... More

If you are in or near Fajardo, you MUST try this place. I've visited a couple of times and it has always lived up to our expectations. At the bar, go for the pineapple mojitos. If they have fried cod fritters as an "off the menu" selection. Go for it! They taste amazing when topped with the tasty arugula salad.... More

The food was absolutely the best we had had, and the service was terrific. The spot is charming, much of the seating... More

We went to La Estacion after snorkeling all day. We live on the island so we have eaten many places around the island. The food was ok I would say no better then typical mofongo or other Puerto Rican dishes served in other places. The difference is the PRICE. They are obviously catering to tourist who don't venture a little... More

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!
