Lybelle and her staff know how to do food and service right! We had a party of 10 and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. The setting is beautiful and relaxing and the service Axel provided was perfect!

We stopped at this restaurant/bar for food and drinks on the way to the bioluminescent bay. The patio overlooks the ocean and the food is amazing!!!

The food was amazing. A nice place to visit if you have the time to wait for servers to decide taking care of you. --Axel in particular did not have the server's attitude, he had to be asked by colleagues to take care of our table. He was instead smoking right at the bar visiting with other servers and having... More

Stopped by La Ola as it was 5 minutes from the apartment we were staying in. Really great spot right on the waterfront with live music. Cocktails and food were delicious, very fresh seafood. I would definitely recommend this place for a laid-back/casual lunch or dinner.

We enjoyed dinner at La Ola. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. Our waiter Bayron not only helped us select our entry he gave us great advice on things to do while in Fajardo. We sat over looking the bay and watched manatee and dolphin swim. Great dinning experience.

La Ola was our first experience with Puerto Rican cuisine. We sat on the dock by the water, watching the boats and enjoying the breeze. The food was good, but paying almost $83 for four lunches with bottled waters was tough to digest.

The food was amazing! The services was a bit slow, they were very busy , the environment was awesome! Live music and you can see the boats passing by!

The location is great as you are sitting right on the water. The service was very good. The food was ok and didn't live up to the hype.

La Ola is tucked away in one of the marinas, it's right on the water and offers a good view of the Ocean while you sip drinks. We had lunch which was good, ceviche and grilled fish - and mofongo of course. I'd recommend checking it out if you're in the area.

The food was excellent, the location - beautiful, and the service was spectacular. Axel handled our large group with patience and professionalism. This is a must when in Fajardo!

Casual outdoor dining. Waterfront with a great view of the small islands like Palomino and Icacos. The menu have a good selection of typical puertorrican food, seafood and meat. Friendly staff. Nice place to enjoy with children, friends and family or for enjoying a romantic evening. BEST VIEW, BEST FOOD, BEST SERVICE!!
