We had gone out fishing earlier in the morning on a private charter in Fajardo and caught a few fish. Our Captain recommended Bohio because the owner/cook is actually a fisherman himself so all of his seafood is fresh.
So we though why not, we'll give it a shot.
It took us nearly half an hour to find it!
When you're coming from El Conquistador, you miss the sign because it is facing the opposite direction. The address on google maps/gps are also incorrect. We called and the daughter of the restaurant gave us confusing directions. But we were determined to find it! We asked some older locals and they finally pointed us in the right direction! (I know, it's not a large area, but we managed to miss the place 3 times).
Finally we arrived.
It is outdoor seating only. Looks to be family run. They have fan going so the heat isn't too bad, then again, we were there for christmas/new years.
There were dogs like the other reviewer said, but they were having a siesta under a truck.
The fish we caught--our captain had fileted them--we had them with butter and garlic seasoning. Which the cook adds veggies too. Our snapper we had deep fried whole. And we ordered the lobster, which is supposed to be super fresh, with garlic butter.
The lobster comes out in chunks--not in shell like we're accustomed to in the states.
But everything was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We also had the sweet plantains and coconut bread with our meal.
It is a very laid back place. So don't expect too much. But we went for the food and the food was delicious. Quick too!
Our meal came out to be $80, 1 beer and 1 fruit punch, the lobster was pricey, but hey, how often are you in puerto rico?
Check it out if you have any fresh fish!
