Seaside Lunch of the decade

We were there for a nice afternoon meal, shall we call it Linner? We made the 1+ hour trip from Patillas just for a meal here. The atmosphere is great, staff has a wonderful attitude and the food as always didn't disappoint. We'll be back again.

We stopped at El Varadero for lunch and enjoyed their hamburgers, fries and bushwhackers. Our waiter Joel was friendly and efficient. It is a small restaurant next to a Marina. Restrooms were clean.

We just have breakfast here today and the food was great. Nice place to eat with the family or to come for a romantic dinner. Joel Rodriguez gave us a great service and we are sure to go back again! 😀😀

We dropped in to El Varadero after a miniboat / snorkeling trip at the same marina and were delighted. Delicious, fresh seafood, great service, and cold beer after a day on the water. What more could you ask for? The prices were great, and the open air experience at the marina was perfect. Eat here!

We visited this restaurant at the recommendation of our hotel. It is a tiny establishment on the marina, but what a little gem. The food was fabulous as was the staff and the drinks. As the evening progressed, we found this to be a local hot spot with the crowds pouring in. Later, musicians set up a tent in the... More

I'm a local from San Juan and I have to say that El Varadero has to be one of the top 5 places to eat seafood in Puerto Rico. For drinks, try the Bushwacker. Also the best version of the drink that I've tried. Try the Mahi Mahi Nuggets with the coconut curry hot sauce.
