“Great dinner spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

I had been nagging our group (13 in all) for two days about this place based on TripAdv reviews.
To find it at night was not easy. Its in a marina and there is even an electric gate. this, a couple of employees hangin' on a very slow night, made me start regretting to have insisted.

Wrong! Service was Excellent. Food even better. We started with a ceviche that was incredibly fresh and such generous portions that we were ready for the check.

Had the mofongo with churrasco which was outstanding. The meat literally melted in my mouth.

We all agreed, by far the best we had had after 4 days in PR. Mojitos were super.

The owner (wife) mentioned told me that they don't advertise much to keep the good service. They achieve it.

Only downer was that there were something's on the menu they did not have that night. But more than made up for it.

My whole family enjoyed this place

The location in the marina was a quaint and rustic

The service was excellent, they made us feel like regulars

The food was fantastic. I got the whole red snapper , a must. Sample all the hot sauces too

Kids loved their dishes and all the appetizers. Good for everyone

“Wonderful Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We ended our wonderful day with Serenity Sea Tours by eating here and the food was delicious and service good. The chicken mofongo was so good everyone kept asking me for a bite. Will definitely eat here again when back in Fajardo.

“Very Good but not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

My family and I had dinner here prior to doing the bio-luminescent kayaking trip. The location was really tough to find but it was fun eating dockside. As others have mentioned, the location is a little "worn". The kids especially liked the view. My oldest daughter had the garlic shrimp and just raved about it. I had the salmon and it was mediocre at best. By far, the biggest hit for everyone was the desert. The flan was fantastic!
