Great food, great service, top notch!

Beautiful view of the marina and surrounding bay. Our waiter, Joel, was most accommodating and friendly. We received the best service we've had in Puerto Rico, and the food was absolutely delicious. If you like burgers, have one here! They are gigantic and super flavorful. We had a fantastic... read more

This review is long overdue. We stayed at the Conquistador this past November and quickly looked around for local flavor. So glad we found this hidden gem. We called and they were about to close but stayed open for us! The staff is amazing; Iris is the sweetest waitress who will gladly go over the entire menu with you. The... More

This is the place to go to if you like the marina environment. Great food and ambiance, real laid back place. On weekends you can find a live band playing reggae, 80's, rock etc.

We arrived late after missing the sign but glad we pursued because we had an amazing time. Amazing time because it not only the food that we enjoyed but the whole experience. First the service, we came almost closing time and yet the servers are so nice and welcoming. We had our drinks in our hands in two minutes, no... More

We had party of 8 eat here and we all enjoyed our food. The calamari and shrimp dishes were excellent for appetizers. We had grouper and mahi maui which were both good. The plantain side dish was very good. We were very disappointed that there were only 2 types of flan available when about 5 flavors were on the menu.... More

Spent time with my wife and son. Great food, water front atmosphere and live music. The ceviche is great and the frozen mojitos are a must.

We returned to this very laid back, casual bar/restaurant recently. We were here a few years ago & enjoyed the experience. I'm pleased to report that it was as good as before, if not better. My wife loved the shrimp mofongo. I had an awesome burger. The drinks are excellent. The prices are reasonable. The service was attentive. It is... More

We ate here several times. Very casual, fun place but they take their food and drinks seriously. Very inexpensive, but a great selection of seafood and PR cuisine made with care. The mojitos aren't too bad, either!

It was a decent location in the marina. The food was good enough as it tasted nice and fresh. There was a nice lime based hot sauce. There was a slight mishap when found a hair in my drink.
