My wife and I stopped here by suggestion on trip advisor. It was kind of hard to find but am glad we did. The food and service were great. I am not a fish person but got the grouper and really enjoyed it. The calamari is some of the best I've ever had. Our bill was around $50 which was... More

We ate here at the recommendation of our fishing guide as it is in the marina we went out of. Park at the Puerto Chico marina walk through the security gate and you cant miss it. They have indoor and outdoor seating. It attracts a local and boating crowd. Live music on the weekends. Their website is really helpful (and... More

I cannot say enough about our waitress, to begin with.. The kindest girl who spoke perfect English (says her mom is "New Yorquan") had great recommendations for the food, drinks, things to do nearby, etc... The restaurant is on the water in a marina, so it has the view and is one of the few ones that can actually claim... More

Even if El Varadero is hard to find( it's right on the ocean, you have to drive by the blue gate to know you're there), the food is out of his world!! The shrimp mofongo was awesome but the churasco mofongo was insane!! Definitely great atmosphere and that cool sea breeze. All the waiters and waitresses are extremely nice!! Service... More

I wish we had discovered this gem earlier in our trip. Loved the decor and it sits right on the marina and had great atmosphere. Very comfortable and laid back. Had the most amazing grouper in garlic sauce - one of the best meals of my whole vacation. Attentive and friendly service, great prices and location equals a don't miss... More

My mother and I ate here after doing the mini boat/snorkeling tour with kayakingpuertorico.com. The grilled pork chops were delicious, and the mojito was perfect after a morning scooting around the ocean! The service was great as well.

You have to really look for El Varadero when driving on RT 987... if you drive by the blue iron gate you've gone to far. Once you're there you'll be greeted with the clanging bells of the boats in the marina, a laid back wait staff and the most AMAZING mofongo you can ever find (get the garlic sauce!!) Fish... More

This little open air restaurant is not that easy to find but worth the effort. It's located a the marina and you have to go past security to get there but by all means go. My wife and I went for a quiet lunch and enjoyed ourselves. Manny was our waiter and did an excellent job. We stareted our with... More

A bit of the beaten path, casual, but the food is outstanding. We ate here twice and both meals were delicious Puerto Rican comfort food. Could have eaten here more had we had the chance.
