Delicioso y Fresco!

If you want, really want fresh sea food, this is your place!! This is not a fancy restaurant, not air conditioning, but a nice view @ Las Croabas. Friendly staff and good service. ask for the "fresh juice" of the day... Last visit was Tamarind, delicious!!

Came to a little quaint restaurant on the water where you can see beautiful fish swimming in crystal clear water, best local fish and lobster turnovers. Very simple, humble place. Food and service is great. Prices extremely reasonable

Captain Yomar caught a nice 4# lobster on my spearfishing trip! El Bohio broiled it up with butter and sides, to perfection: wonderful presentation and out of this world taste.This was one of the best meals I've ever had. The location in Las Croabas is convenient and the staff are super friendly. Eat here!

My husband and I are on our honeymoon and visited the bio bay, after our tour was over we heard from the crew members that we should try El Bohio. Awful can't begin to describe it. From slow service to screaming local children crashing their bikes into your table and the bar we knew this wasn't going to end well.... More

If you visit Fajardo and you don't go to El Bohio for a FRESH LOBSTER you haven't been there! This restaurant have been there more than 30 years and the food has always been fresh. Every dish in here is the "catch of the day" because they caught all the serve. Had an amazing time! Service is excellent, they make... More

Captain Marcos from 787 fishing recommended we come here. We ordered the catch of day and they cooked our catch from fishing charter that morning. This is an outdoor restaurant. No frills but excellent food and service. The two girls that waited on us spoke very good English and were helpful on what to order. We had so much leftovers!... More

Lots of potential for this long standard family restaurant. They are an institution and that speaks well of the place. They fish their menu items and serve them up fresh as can be Wednesday through Sunday as I recall. Call ahead to be sure. On the up side its good cooking and the sides are truly puerto rican dishes well... More

The freshest seafood! Wait staff was awesome! Six days in Puerto Rico and this was by far the best! Too bad we found it the day before we left!!!

The restaurant came highly recommended by the couple we rented our condo from so we tried it. The best I can say about the service is that they provided us bug spray to ward of the mosquitos. Our waitor seemed to know little English and didn't seem willing to try and help us. Food was ok, nothing to get excited... More
