At the suggestion of tripadvisor reviewers we are here and what a hidden gem it is. Great drinks, tapas and fun! Jason the waiter is nice and helpful, as well as are the bartenders and chef. Great meal, great dancing, great drinks on the water in the marina. Come here, you won't be disappointed!

We visited Fajardo in June and visited many restaurants during our stay. This is a classic case where you can't judge a book buy its cover, upon walking to the restaurant we were a little skeptical. La Ola was simply the best! We loved it so much we went for dinner 2 nights in a row. The service was OUTSTANDING.... More

The food is awful. Drinks are good with a great view. Service is ok. Red snapper fish is vary small and cooked so much it's inedible. 6 people and everyone had to l Abe and go eat somewhere else.

This is a hidden gem! My partner and I enjoyed an amazing sea-side moonlit night with live music, dancing, and some of the best rum we've ever tasted. Definitely worth the adventure!!! Breathtaking view of the water and an amazing local experience. Make sure to request Eli as he is the nicest, most hospitable waiter we could have asked for!... More

Great little place across the street from our condo. We headed over a little late in the evening and they were very accommodating. The food was awesome!

We had a great experience at this place! Everything was great - Excellent service, food, music and authentic local flavor. 90% of the crowd here were locals. IMO, Piña colada here was far better than the place that claims to have invented it in San Juan. Sad that it is only open Thursday - Sunday.

I wish we'd had more time to hang out and sample more, but we were on the way to a kayak tour of the bioluminescent bay. Good stuff. I want to go back and try more dishes.
