Delicious, authentic Puerto Rican cuisine!

We are so happy we left the resort to dine at Pasion por el Fogon. It was the BEST meal we had all week. John, our waiter, was knowledgeable, friendly and helped us pick local favorites from the menu. Food=EXCELLENT; Service=EXCELLENT!

Stopped into Pasion por el Fogon with clients who recommended it, absolutely fantastic! Great service and superb food, the whole fired Snapper is a dish I will remember for a long time. The Ambiance could have been better, but for Puerto Rico, it was very nice!

The Mofongo is exceptional! The stuffed red snapper is also very good. Our family of five, order very different entrees and everyone was very pleased with their meal. Save some room for dessert because the offerings are yummy!

This was our first experience dining in Puerto Rico and we literally stumbled on it a few blocks from our condo. What a pleasant surprise. The favorite dish of the night was the grouper. The service was terrific.

After eating resort food for 3 days in a row, we decided to venture out and find a local restaurant. We were looking for a more elegant and authentic place. We definitely found it here. The food was extremely delicious (we ordered the skirt steak and the snapper) and the service was very quick. Our waitress, Glenda, was so nice... More

We drove past and then looked at TRIP Advisor and saw the ranking. What a great dining experience. We had a wonderful waitress who went over and above even offering herself to take a couple photos of the wife and I. The management of the restaurant was on top of all aspects even checking on us during our meal. We... More
