“Food was not fresh, overpriced”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Food did not taste fresh although we dined when they opened at 5pm. I requested a small side of house sauce and was informed that I would be charged for it. We also asked to sample another sauce they make, the house sauce and were informed that it was still cold and was being heated up but we never received it to sample. Do not recommend this resturant.

“Best seafood in Fajardo!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Our large group enjoyed the fantastic seafood (I had the whole snapper - YUM!!) and great service. The sangria - as others have noted - was phenomenal and definitely worth getting. Everything was hot, fresh, and delicious. Completely worth the trip to find this hidden gem. My third trip, not disappointed at all! Enjoy!!

“Calizo - Comes at you quickly.”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Driven only by hunger, this establishment sorta popped up at the road side. Stop-turn around-park at the door. Not Disappointed. Actually thrilled at the personal service of Gregory.

The Sangria IS very good, to a fault. What!? The tables nearest the bar are surrounded by 2 or 3 different floor levels, perhaps to lend excitement to the architecture and / or provide entertainment watching folks falling down. I nearly did and yecsss, we'll have another, waiter.

Delightful dinners ( red fish - fried ) & stacked seafood medley ( mussels, scallops, shrimp et al.) saffron rice base each for about a very decent nine bucks. Nice presentation.

After 10 days on the island we wagered "if" they too, would side serve mufungo, like everyone else. OH yes... mufungo, comprised of cooked mashed plantains, a ton of garlic and my favorite, lard. Similar to judging Grits in Mississippi ... lots of chances to do so. Oh they did, and we snarfed it down.

“Surprisingly good food in Las Croabas area”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

The service was wonderful!!! Our waitress really went out of her way to pease us. The food very well presented and the prices were reasonable. The ambiance was romantic. Perfect final touch for a wonderful beach day.

“Awesome service and even better food!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

The sangria is the best I’ve had in a long time. The wait staff was phenomenal, and the food was top notch. We had great bacalaito-like apps, great mofongo and steak, and fish entrees, and awesome flan and cheesecake. Great for a romantic dinner, or for a nice dinner with family. Can’t wait to go back on our next visit!
