The food was not amazing but it was really good. The service was really nice and the drinks (alcohol drinks) was refreshing and on point.

We stopped for dinner with a BeSpoke tour group, and we greatly enjoyed our meal. The tour operator called in everyone's dinner order ($12 flat rate for main dish, tostones, sweet plantain, rice/beans, salad, soft drinks) so we didn't have to wait long. He also called in the number of mojitos, as they are each made by hand. My grouper... More

We went to this restaurant after a El Yunque national rainforest of Puerto Rico tour. Our tour guide, Jerry, said that this is a mom & pop restaurant and if his mom cooks it is like that. He is telling the truth. The food was beyond amazing. The shrimp was delicious, and so was the rice which was great especially... More

"Yummy!!!" That's pretty much all that needs to be said. Ambience is humble yet very clean. The skirt steak and grouper were both wonderfully prepared and succulent. The rice was far from plain, especially when matched with the red beans. The owners are super nice and inviting. If you're coming to Fajardo, come with an appetite!!

After our tour through the rainforest, we paid this place a visit. Great home style food, amazing service. We tried their grouper, their chicken and their shrimp, all grilled and served with white rice, green and ripe plantains (tostones y maduros) and red beans (habichuelas). As many mojitos as we've had in this trip, theirs was the best we've tried...ever!... More

Came here as part of a tour. The food was ok. The staff were not very helpful and much more interested in serving drinks than anything else. They ran out of rice and beans. Also, the desserts were poor at best.

Excellent food and service. Previously located in Don Esteban and now in their own facility, they prepared a churrasco and a grouper that are incredibly delicious. A must return to enjoy their other dishes.

A little hard to find at first but was glad we kept trying. I had the shrimp and rice and my husband had the skirt steak strips. We both love our meals and literally cleaned our plate. Great service too. Must go if in Fajardo.

We had a great experience after first arriving in Puerto Rico. My cousin took us to a restaurant in Fajardo, located on the main road from the airport. We had a great experience because being the first Wednesday of the month the owners had their special music day. On this date there are musicians from all over the island who... More
