Best churrasco and Mero in the East

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

The food was the best we had yet in PR. The service was great, the waiters were helpful on helping us pick out food, and did I mention the food was Excellent! We got the whole fried snapper, oxtails, and steak and onions. My boyfriend was in heaven and ate everything to the bones. The staff joked with us and... More

Stopped here on our tour from the Rainforest to the bio bay kayaking. The best host and chef in Puerto Rico on my week vacation. Didn't find anything like it!

Boricuba no longer exists at the location listed in TripAdvisor. Look at the reviews for Don Esteban, which has the correct address. Don Esteban is located near the intersection of PR 3 and PR 194 near the Walmart/Econo shopping plaza, but behind the Scotia Bank and Advanced Auto Parts.

This is an excellent restaurant for typical Cuban and Puerto Rican cuisine. If you have a big appetite, you'll love their oxtail stew served with congri (black beans and rice). The staff is very attentive and swift with serving the food. It's near the Wal-Mart store in Fajardo and is easy to locate. Just turn right off Rte. 3 and... More

We went on Valentine's day, and after being unable to find it, called and found out it had moved and changed its name to Don Esteban. I usually don't enter bad reviews, but in this case both the food and the service was terrible. The wait staff was very nice, but no matter how nice they were, it didn't make... More

Very good food. Seafood is fresh and there are wonderful creole dishes. People who operate the restaurant are very warm and charming.
