“Delicious barbecued meats!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We visited La Estacion on our first and last nights in Fajardo. I wanted to try the mofongo and chose the one with barbecued chicken. It was delicious. My son had the combination barbecue platter with pork ribs and chicken. He doesn't like to try new things but he pretty much licked the plate clean. My husband was not disappointed in his steak and loved the flan for dessert. We enjoyed this place so much we returned for one more time. My husband was extremely pleased with his lobster and I took a tip from my son - we both had the barbecue combo platter. The white sangria was wonderful. The staff is friendly and attentive and the setting was fun and interesting. We couldn't have chosen a better way to start or end our holiday in Fajardo and look forward to returning some day. We stayed at the El Conquistador and I can promise you that the effort to come here is well worth it for a meal much less expensive than the hotel restaurants and so, so, so, so much better!

“Ok Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

The service was excellent, our waiter was very attentive abs engaging. Now, the food for me was Ok. I had chicken, fish pinchos for an app and the Red snapper for my entree. The fish was just ok, it didn't blow me away, but the price did :). If you want to come here; call and make a reservation.

“5 Star Quality Food in an Old Gas Station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

The food was dead on....they didn't drop they ball on anything. The mofango was first rate and the skirt steak was cooked to perfection. Eventhough we were stuffed like pigs after eating dinner, one glance at the dessert the couple next to us ordered, we had our call to action....stuffed banana turnover with ice cream.
jose, our server, was enthusiastic and passionate about food. It was a joy to see a consumate, professional working the room.
The place fills up quickly so get there early or make reservations!

“Great dining option in Fajardo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited the place while staying at El Conquistador its a short walk from the main gate but keep in mind its a long ealk from the hotel to the gate. Place is always quite packed so make reservations or try going early, opens at 5pm. Most of the tables are outside so beware if its raining. Stuffed mofongo is pretty good and its about $20. Tried the watermelon lemonado it was amazing. Food is tasty and had a menu with good options but if you need to wait a long time for a table its probably not worth the wait given that Fajardo has tons of restaurants.
Overall i do recommend given it a try.
