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.

this is a place to enjoy real typical food at a reasonable prices. The service is excellent and the ambiance is super. You can eat out in the fresh air, or inside the airconditioning area. Plenty of parking space. We really enjoyed the place.

Food was excellent and the service was even better! The owner took care of our table, and was super friendly and hospitable. When my friend and I realized we forgot our cash she entrusted us to go to the bank next door to get payment without any fuss (which of course we came back and paid!). I would definitely go... More

My wife and I loved this place last year and love it more this year. We went on Sunday afternoon when they have entertainment, 2 singers with one playing the guitar as well. Amazing the sound they can get with appropriate background sounds, drums, trumpets and more. We each had a cuban shrimp and rice soup with a very distinctive,... More
