Shrimp stew was great. Sara had shrimp creole w mofongo which was great also. Sangria wasn't very good... read more

Stuffed lobster with shrimp and mofongo on the side. Now that was an unbelievable meal. The drinks and food at this local spot are delicious. This restaurant is dear to my heart because I was here last year and I returned again this year. I was completely surprised that the staff remembered me and my best friend. They were very... More

I've been to Puerto Rico twice and stayed at El Conquistador which is a ten minute walk to the local restaurants. The restaurant is right where all the locals hang and eat their meals after a long full day of work. I've gone back twice for the Stuffed lobster which is filled with shrimp, scallops and lobter-soo delicious. Ricky and... More

The location of this local open air eatery sits right across from the ocean and is enjoyed by the locals and tourists who choose to explore just outside the El Conquistador resort. But be prepared to also be joined by the local roosters, chickens, and dogs just outside, which offers a unique feel. The food is great and a welcome... More

The food was good and the price was average. There is a little bit of a view across the street to the water. We had the tostones and mofongo stuffed with chicken. Both were good.

You have to make these restaurant into your list. They have the most amazing seafood dishes you can imagine and the prices are very wonderful.

This is not a fancy restaurant so don't expect too much, it's an eatery where local people stop by for a bite and a beer. We enjoyed our arepas, dumplings and mofongo.

Extremely Dirty! Tables are so dirt but, that white table are gray and we wipe with hand wipes and it come extremely dirt and the table start to get white. Even that the appetizer that we order was good. But we decide to go other place anyway. That is unacceptable event for that type of outdoor kiosk/restaurant.

We happen to be in Fajardo when Puerto Rico was set in a danger status, due to hurricane Erika. We drove for hours looking for a place to eat and nothing was open. We started to wander around and stumbled upon El Racar. This place definitely was a local hot spot, which is what you want to look for. The... More

Great seafood in a local Fajardo fishermans area. Sit down relax, have a few drinks, and enjoy the scenery. Service is good and fast.
