Good lunch

We stop by here before going to the airport and I got an order of mahi mahi nuggets with a liquid special. The nugget was good and I can taste the freshness. I love all their homemade salsa and I had to try them all. My BF ordered a few arepas and he said it was delicious. Come by if... read more

Very cool and layback place with good food and a great staff. We usually order burgers and/or the pork shop plate. Have not been disappointed. Sometimes they have music in the evening.

You may wonder why I said "well worth the adventure". Well this place is not the easiest to find but after you eat there you will know why I used this title. I had the Ceviche with of course rise and beans. The Ceviche dish would have served two people so if you have a hardy appetite go for it.... More

We stayed here on the Marina Puerto Chico after doing the mini-boat adventure, and oh, what a find! Before the mini-boats, we grabbed a quick virgin Pina Colada and it was better than most we've ever had, so it was an easy decision to stay afterwards for a bit of supper. Super friendly, helpful, talkative staff...and owner, Gene, too! Nani... More

This will be the last time that we will be here, if you have time on your hands lets say more than 5... More

We went here for dinner while visiting and it was the best dinner of our entire trip. Their was terrific live reggae music, great food and terrific hot sauces to try. The vibe couldn't have been any better. The location is off the beaten path and right on the water in a marina. If you're in the area, you have... More

We were looking for a casual authentic Puert Rican establishment with good food and anbiance. This was the best choice of the week. Twice our party of six dined there. Our waitor Joel was great. The kids had plenty to look at outside with boats everywhere and everyone inside was having a great time and could not have been more... More

We have eaten at this wonderful little restaurant many times over the years, always catching our own fish with Captain Marcos, then having the restaurant cook it. This time was exceptional! We had two restaurant owners and chefs from Australia with us on this trip and they raved. Now THAT is a compliment The wait staff was very attentive, the... More

This little restaurant is located at the Fajardo Marina. Near the water, all wood. The view is spectacular, the waitress are very friendly and do their job if you have doubts on what to order. When we visit this place we don't want to leave. We had chapin fritters and arepa de coco, plus mahi mahi nuggets and tostones. All... More
