Great Spot, Best Meal In Fajardo

First off, this is a very casual place. It's a small "seaside shack" style restaurant like you would expect to find in the Caribbean islands. It sits in a gated marina and be aware, it is not easy to get to if you don't know exactly where to go so get good directions before venturing out. When we... read more

Prices were reasonable, service excellent, and food was fantastic. We ended up visiting twice out of four nights in Fajardo. Waitress was reason we returned. Took time to explain dishes, recommended great food. Portions above average as well. FYI, restaurant is behind the gate at the marina.

While trying to find it was hard and frustrating once we got there it was relaxing and enjoyable. It is located down a hill in the gated marina. The staff was nice and service was good. The food was delicious and portions were good sized. The kids menu had good choices and my picky eaters did just fine. Prices were... More

This was my favorite place we ate while in Fajardo. It was such a neat little place right on the water. Very local and no reservations!

What I like most about El Varadero is that the food is good and its a familiar place where people know each other. The burgers are the best! It is open air (no air conditioning) but because its so casual you don't really mind. You sit right on the dock with the boats and the breeze and the salty air.... More

Great food, great service. Me and my family stopped there a couple years ago looking for a restaurant and on the way we saw a sign, we said "why not?" Since then I go there each time I'm in PR no matter the city I'm staying. Fresh food, some nights there is a live music show also. The best. Cons:... More

Service was friendly and attentive. Food had a local flare and the atmosphere was very fun. Out of many food items. Our server Nani was a delight.
