Let me first say that I usually don't write reviews. I'm pretty terrible actually, I use tripadvisor for every trip but never actually contribute. That changes today.
We stayed at El Conquistador in Fajardo and went to El Yunque and stopped here on our way back thanks to TripAdvisor and we were impressed. It's a very quaint, no frills restaurant on a residential block with gates in front of the homes.
Having lived in Puerto Rico for a semester in College, windows with bars is a very normal thing, so don't worry about that.
The restaurant has a gift shop in front and we had to be buzzed in. When we sat down, we were the only people in the restaurant (it was only 6pm) but it was a little disconcerting.
But the food was incredible. Having lived in PR and had my fair share of AUTHENTIC home cooked meals, this food is on par with the best I've ever had. The owner/Host Luis was incredibly nice and warm and his wife, the cook, is an incredible chef.
If you're staying at El Conquistador, it's about a 10-15 minute drive, kinda hard to find but well worth your time. It was so good I even wrote a review.
