Wins hands down by comparison...

My husband and I had dinner here our first evening at the resort. While all the restaurants on the grounds are overpriced, at least the food, particularly the fish, was cooked correctly. While the appetizers of fried calimari (probably frozen) and the seafood stew were just passable, our entrees... read more

Had a wonderful meal during our stay in Fajardo. Service was excellent, food was prepared very well. Only issue was the exorbitant pricing.

This restaurant at the El Conquistador resort had an excellent selection of seafood and non-seafood choices. Everything we ordered was tasty. Their desert was incredible too. Very polite staff and a great experience. It's right by the marina area too. Only critique was the portions of some items were fairly small.

If you can get past a more limited menu and higher price tag...you can expect to enjoy a wonderful meal. The calamari starter was delicious, which we followed with a pear and gorganzola salad, which was also very nice. The swordfish main course was outstanding and worth going back for again. Seating outside was comfortable and made for a great... More

My boyfriend and I went here for our first night at El Conquistador. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather and ambiance of the patio. Our server was very attentive, friendly and prompt, a welcome change from other local establishments. However, the food was just not that good. The best thing we had was our appetizer, the tiger shrimp... More

We ordered the grouper dinner plate. Large Fish portion which was cooked well with a very nice creole sauce on it. The starch vegetable was tooooo much. I would have enjoyed smaller portion, larger salad. It was our first meal and I expected more flavor and spice in the dish. I will need to learn more about the food to... More

( she was our server the first time ). The food was a bit pricey but was delicious, we were here to experience island flavor and they fulfilled our... More

Service was good - lots of people to wait on us. Food was ok, but it came out barely luke warm, which isn't wonderful for fish. And, we were there early when it wasn't even packed.
