A gem in Fajardo. A wonderful culinary experience. Excellent service (our waiter Eduardo was pleasant and very professional) and superior food quality. Everything was delicious. Seafood perfection on every plate! The cream (bisque) of crab and lobster was amazing! On the pricey side but totally worth it. Don't ever miss this place when in town.

Pasión por el Fogón is undoubtedly the best restaurant located at the Gran Meliá Puerto Rico resort. It is owned by chef Myrta Pérez who also owns Pasión at nearby Fajardo. Everything I have eaten there is good. The restaurant specialises in local food and is famous for its local lobster. The grilled churrasco (hanger steak) and Puertorican Caviar (plantain... More

Don't miss this terrific restaurant while you are in town. Incredible seafood, that is fresh fresh fresh. Great selection -- so hard to choose but definitely try the fresh fish of the day which they prepared fried ( the lightest I have ever tasted). Service is helpful and very welcoming and friendly. Great sangria -- I had the white and... More

After spending a day hiking in El Yunque and then relaxing at the hotel, we were ready for a great meal. Pasion por el Fogon is in a fairly nondescript location, with a pleasant but not extraordinary atmosphere. But the meal and the service were extraordinary. Our waiter, John, guided us through the menu and made several recommendations. We shared... More

Our server Glenda was really friendly and efficient. There were 8 of us in the group and the service was fast and efficient. When we couldn't decide on the what type of Sangria to order, she brought samples for us to try. The food was plentiful and very good. I highly recommend the red snapper stuffed with shrimps in garlic... More

We came to this restaurant with no expectations.. and left loving everything about it! The food was amazing, service was incredible and the waiting time was more than reasonable for the amount of guests that were having dinner that night. The food was so good, that we went back the next day to have lunch with other family members. I... More
