“Best mofongo ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Amazing, eclectic atmosphere. Waiter was energetic, nice and happy to give suggestions on the menu. I had the shrimp and mahi mahi mofongo and it was absolutely delicious. Very moist and flavorful. seriously, I didn't want it to end. We ate here on our way to the bioluminescent bay and it made for a wonderful evening in Fajardo!

“Perfect pit stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

La Estacion is a converted gas station into a quirky restaurant with incredible food and atmosphere. It is worth a stop from San Juan, especially if it is combined with an excursion to bio bay. We enjoyed the appetizer special, pinchos with chicken and BBQ combo. Staff was great.

“Can you say mofonGOOOOD?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Keep in mind "La Estacion" means "the station" so it's an old gasoline station turned into a cool outdoor restaurant. Food was greatttt but the mofongo was amazingggg-they even serve it in a traditional PILON! Drinks were ehhhh could have been stronger, staff was extremely attentive and polite. My boyfriend and I were actually in a terrible mood (traffic blues) before we got to the location and the atmosphere lifted our spirits completely!

“yummy! 5 stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

excellent food, excellent service, excellent presentation, excellent environment and fun! the owner of the inn we stayed at took us there and we were impressed that it is not the regular tourist trap but was filled with locals! our waitress was fabulous, with suggestions, explanations and humor. the owners wife gave us complimentary shots at the end of the meal. price was very reasonable.
