Enjoyed a great dinner here after our mini boat trip. The service was awesome, all the staff was friendly, and the food was delicious. They also make a tasty passion fruit mojito which I highly recommend. My husband enjoyed the pork appetizer and I loved the arepa rellena with conch. Make sure you ask for the avocado hot sauce!

I went with a mixed seafood dish with citrus dressing and fried plantain chips. The seafood was extremely fresh and perfectly seasoned. Great ambiance with tasteful decor. Perfect... More

Three of our party ordered meat dishes, and portions were generous. Those who ordered burgers were well satisfied with the flavor. The server recommended a special homemade lemon salsa for the...

The burgers here really hit the spot after a super fun day on a mini-boat snorkeling tour. One of the best burgers I've ever eaten. The fried plantain on the burgers was a new twist and was delicious. We'd highly recommend. Make sure you read the restaurant rules for a good laugh!

My family and I enjoyed the food and the charm of this port side restaurant. The ceviche, burgers and sandwiches were large portions and great tasting. The fish was fresh. We loved trying the many hot sauces they make there. The price was very reasonable. Have a drink and enjoy the view of the boats in a comfortable and relaxed... More

You MUST try their Frozen Mojito, looks like a green slush of grass but its amazing! The food was excellent, moderate portions. The service was really good, however the food... More

My boyfriend and I visited El Varadero Seaside Grill when visiting Fajardo in June of 2016. We read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and felt like we needed to visit. We had a little bit of a hard time finding the place but once we found it in the marina we had excellent service from the time we arrived to... More
