“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

We ate fish and lechon with arroz con gandules. Both had good taste. The fish was fresh and the dinner specials were 10.95. They had beer special for 2.00 a bottle. The tres leches cake was excellent! Overall very friendly staff, nice ocean view inside, and good food.

“So so...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We had chicken wings as a starter plate. They where very tasteful, crunchy and well cooked! Ice cold beer... very nice view of the sea...For dinner we order the chicharones de pollo with mofongo and the bbq pork ribs with rice and beans. Chicharrones = untasteful, ribs had tooo much sause, rice and beans where blah! In general, we shouldn't had order dinner... nice for samplers, beer, ocean view but will not recommend it for dinner.

“Wonderful Dining Experience for Anyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

El Fogon is family-owned with a friendly atmosphere and we felt right at home. The menu offers traditional Puerto Rican food along with Italian food. The server, who was the owner, was fluent in both English and Spanish and gave honest recommendations when we asked questions. All food was brought out quickly. The portion sizes were generous and the prices were very fair. The only downside was that seasonal offerings limit part of the menu, but this demonstrates how local and fresh the food is.

As a starter we ordered chicken empanadillas, which were prepared fresh and tasty. I ordered a grouper fish fillet that was really well-cooked along with two sides; I got the rice and beans along with amarillos (sweet plantains), which were delicious! My boyfriend ordered a pizza and the dough was soft, chewy and just perfect. We split the coconut cake for dessert and left the restaurant very satisfied.
