“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

The service was amazing, the food to die for. I had the monfongo with sauce and shrimps and my husband had the churrasco OMG, OMG words can't describe the awesome food severed at Kasavista. The owner himself introduced himself and went through the wonderful dishes they serve. Truly should be rated #1. Beyond any doubt will be back soon and will recommend it. Lets not forget the House sangria

“Awesome, the best!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I checked out of El Conquistador Resort and search for a good restaurant on tripadvisor. And there it was, KASAVISTA #4 on the list, which actually I think should be #1. What amaized me most was that the owner and chef Leslie Valentin serve and presented the plates to us. He said that every time there's an opportunity to do so he will do it. Vicente his manager, and all the crew were amaizing at their service and attention. A must went visiting Fajardo City. Can wait to visit them again

“Great new restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

The food was very good. I had the curry shrimp and risotto cake, the sauce was so good, I wish I had ordered 2. My husband ordered the crab quesadilla and the stuffed chicken, he loved it. This is one of those places you could go back to every night!

“Vegetarian-Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Kasavista caught my eye as we went kayaking, as I love sparse, modern decor. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our final night in PR here, and were pleased. As a vegetarian, it can be challenging to find dining diversity when traveling. While Kasavista didn't have many vegetarian options, they were accommodating and knowledgeable about their dishes, verifying if certain ingredients were okay with me. It's rare to have a server ask if I'm comfortable with stock, dairy, and eggs, and recommend dishes accordingly. Often while traveling, servers simply recommend a side vegetable (even if cooked with meat) or a plain salad. However, I would love to see more vegetarian options, as it wouldn't be very interesting to have a repeat visit.

The fried cheese appetizer was delightfully light, and the chef created a custom rice and root vegetable dish for me, which was delicious! We splurged on cheese souffle for dessert, which was nice and not too rich. For drinks, the server talked us into a pitcher of house sangria, which didn't seem to contain much wine (weak), but tasted of authentic fruit versus watery juice like you find in some places. I would choose a different drink next time.

The service was above and beyond. Everyone checked on us constantly. The decor was contemporary, chic, and clean. It was a lovely evening for Fajardo dining, though not quite the NYC-level we're spoiled with for those prices.
