After rather unimpressive dining experiences in the Caribbean, the dinner at El Fogon was like a complete rebirth of our taste buds. The daily specials were soooo good, that we ordered again the complete 2-course menu after devouring it in complete disbelief. The red snapper wih goat cheese, spinach and coconut-and-ginger rice was definitely the absolute best fish we have... More

We had great red snapper fish with local vegetables and it was great. The local Belikin Lighthouse beer helped cool us down. Temperature was in 90s most of time we were there in late August and early Sept.

Stopped by the lunch in Labor Day. Amazing lunch specials and great food. Stewed chicken is awesome. Two meals and two sodas costs us about $17 USD. Not too bad for what we got!

Open fire wood grilled greatness. The Pibil Salbutes are insane. The grilled lobster rocks. The chicken fire pot was bonkers.

The food here is PHENOMENAL. We had the lobster chowder, curried shrimp, grilled lobster and chicken stew along with a few ceviches. Every bit of it was delicious. The drinks weren't the strongest we've had - but they were cold and the service was excellent. Will definitely come back.
