Just a casual place w/ plastic chairs, loud local music playing (sometimes; live music on Sundays), and seafood at great prices. I was staying at El Con, went on a walk to look for some geocaches for my daughters, and happened upon this place. It turned out to be happy hour – just $1 for cans of Medalla or Medalla Light (regularly $1.60 or $2 for a bottle); wow – after prices at El Con, that was quite the bargain. I also tried the pastelillos w/ shrimp (just $2.25) – kind of like an empanada or turnover, w/ shrimp in a tasty tomato-type sauce inside – very good.
My husband and I came back the next day for lunch and tried the local fish pastelillo (very good - $1.70), an arepa w/ shrimp, octopus and conch for $6 (kind of a sandwich between cornbread patties; pretty good, not too much flavor, maybe pork would have been better), and mofongos rellenos w/ combinacion of seafood (fish, shrimp, octopus, conch - $19) – almost everyone at the table of local folks behind us got this, too, and we liked it, but I think we were spoiled by the gourmet-like mofongo we had the night before at La Estacion – it was really light, almost like a cornbread pudding, and this one (which probably was more authentic and traditional) was quite a bit denser, and not quite as much flavor. Afterward, we kind of wished we’d tried the whole grilled fish of the day, but it was all still very good. The side of beans and rice (just $3) was incredible.
TIPS – the menu on the board and specials are entirely in Spanish, but they can give you a menu in English and Spanish if you ask. They also have wonderful bottles of homemade salsas if you ask.
NOTE: To get there from the El Con, go down to the Marina, Go left and follow the path out the security exit, and follow the road along the water until you get to the park, it’s on the left side of the street, just past the park. Less than 15 minute walk.
