Recently we were doing some business in the area (we are from Ponce) and we visited El Varadero Seaside Grill for our first time ever. We have been exceptionally served by Joel. Excellent service, he suggests us the best options (really best), appetizers and main dishes were awesome. Tangy sauces, good cocktails, out of this world Keylime cheesecake... Prices? Cheaper...

A little hard to find, small sign by road, also have to park about a block away outside the marina gate but once you find it, you're in business. Ate there three times, tried different apps and main seafood each time and not disappointed once.

This was our favorite meal during our week in Fajardo. The tuna tartare was amazing. We enjoyed tasting one another's entrees (each was delicious and perfectly cooked. The service is a little slow (by mainland standards) but the beers are cold and cheap and the frozen mojitos are great. Sit back enjoy the company and some beverages and wait to... More

After a Sunny day, the perfect place to have dinner was there. The fish was delicious! Kids enjoy the local food (Rice and beans). The Arepas, fish nuggets, chicken wings, everything was delicious. A little delay and half hour waiting but we had a great time! We have to come back again!

This is a bit out of the way but worth the trip. Views are spectacular and the food was very good. Our server was extremely friendly and explained our choices in detail. The beverages were very good also. All this at a very low price.

This was the second time my wife and I dined at El Varadero and they remain consistently excellent. All fresh food, great boating atmosphere, and friendly service (thanks Jose, Joel & Conrad!). We tried their new tuna tartar appetizer with a homemade sesame seed oil dressing (Ajonioli) and it was outstanding. And did I mention the drink menu is fun... More

An awesome place that make honor to its motto "not fancy, just good food". The restaurant is place inside the marina Puerto Chico with view to the boat docks. Excellent services and great taste. Is open space so you could really sense the sea side.

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! The... More

Stopped by for dinner on the 4th of July. Jose was our server and was very welcoming and helpful giving recommendations. The frozen mojito was one of the best I've ever had. 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

After the mini boating adventure, we were very hungry. El Varadero is conveniently located right in Marina Puerto Chico. The server who took our order was informed and helpful. 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...
