We went to this restaurant during our vacations at el conquistador. This place exceeded our expectations. The food was awesome and the service excellent. We went the next day for dinner again. Keep up the great job!

This is by far the best restaurant we ate at while in Fajardo. The service was superb and the food was even better. We let the waiter pretty much order for us. He let us try the ceviche (I've never had it) and it is by far my most favorite food to date. The hubs got the fried fish that... More

Very casual but the food is amazing. The seafood salad, tuna and drinks were all great. Small place so expect to wait.

I've eaten here now a few times. The staff are very friendly, and service is very good. They respond quickly if you need something, are very helpful in seating larger parties, and in helping you to be seated where you want to be. I very much appreciate the service here! The atmosphere is really great! Located at a marina, you... More

You must know that this place is hard to find. It's actually at the marina, inside the gate. We drove by the marina three times before we saw the sign for it. Anyway, this place is great! It's small, so go at an off-time, if you want a seat. There are a lot of flies coming off the water and... More

My husband had been here before with his brother and suggested that we try it. I'm glad that we did! We ordered appetizers for entrees. I had Ceviche pescado( first time for me) kids had kalamari, Hubs had Arepas de pulpo. Wow! They even had various pique's (hot sauces) we tried and for sell. I loved the Lava Guava....unfortunately they... More

Here you get great local food in a great location. The dorititos (mahimahi nuggets) are great starters to share. Before you visit, make sure there's no power failure in the area though ;)

We had a delicious dinner here (recommended by our Bio Bay tour guides from Kayaking Puerto Rico) after our BioBay excursion. My grouper was fresh, with a perfect fry and moist, tender inside. Not fast food, but worth the wait, in a casual marina-side atmosphere.
