I've been to so many restaurants in my life but this is one of the best I've been to. It's secluded in the mountains hilltops in the island very clean and sophisticated yet you can find anything in the Puerto Rican menu. Will be back!

My wife and I have dines all over the world. Our butler at Las Casitas recommended we dine here. My wife had the filet of snapper with lobster stream sauce. An out of body experience! So good we had to go back the next next and get the same dish!

My family dined here 3 times during our stay at El Conquistador hotel. The atmosphere is that of a true Puerto Rican home; not an upscale restaurant. But it is part of the experience. I am of Puerto Rican descent and the food was delicious and authentic! The Chef is amazing at mixing the right flavors and bringing pure bliss... More

We visited Pasion por el Fogon while guests at El Conquistador. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a local restaurant with truly excellent food and great service. Our fish selections were fresh and well-prepared. We were accompanied by our young children; a children's menu is available. We would highly recommend a trip to experience local dining rather than resort... More

The location has a really nice décor and ambiance. Service is really very very good- I would say way above average, almost near to high fine dining. My overall rating is a 3, because besides décor and service, meal is average and overpriced when compared to similar restaurants. Their stuffed seafood is great, but anything else is just plain average... More

This was my first visit to this elegant restaurant but it certainly will not be my last Even though I live on the island of Vieques this meal was well worth a ferry ride to experience! The service was 5 star and the fish filet in creamy caper sauce to die for. My friend had a filet with lobster sauce... More

Good food. Definitely try their seafood special. Beware of drinking the water, ask for beverages instead. The location is easy to miss, but once you find it and go inside, its a delight. This place is near El conquistador resort and offers a little taste of Puerto Rico while visiting the Island. The seafood special was good and very tender.

We picked Pasion at random based in part on other TripAdvisor reviews. What a wonderful choice. Our waiter Bryant was helpful and attentive. The food was super amazing wonderful ... I can't say enough. My shrimp gumbo was flavorful. My husband's fried fish was light and flaky. My mom's stuffed snapper was fresh and flavorful. Can't wait to return.

Great Caribbean food. Had the fried red snapper stuffed with shrimp and lobster with the scampi sauce. Very very good. Service was great as well. You will drop some dollars but if your looking for great food and service it is well worth it. It has been one of our favorites so far.
