“Best restaurant in Fajardo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Kasavista was a fantastic experience for us. The restaurant sits right on the ocean with an amazing view of the water, and sits right where the bioluminescent bay tour starts. The food at the restaurant was delicious and very fresh, nothing frozen. We ate mofongo at several places, and Kasavista was by far the best. Amazing sangria as well. The service was awesome as well, as all of the employees were very kind, and always smiling and happy. Easily my favorite place that I ate at while in Puerto Rico.

“Nice but could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

The food is good but we wait up to 45 minutes to eat...the portions of the food are not too good. The waiter try to do his best.

Hola Lynn2428, I wonder if your entree took 45 minutes or your meal took 45 minutes. I have been there in the kitchen everyday and I know when something like this happens and I was totally taken back when I read this.
I apologise if in fact your entree took this long which I hoenstly doubt and I hope it was your entire meal.

“Wondeful Vegetarian Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We were on a 5 days trip to PR and being a vegetarian had tough time finding good food. After coming back from bioluminescent lagoon our guide suggested Kasavista and i am happy we took her suggestion as we really enjoyed this restaurant. They have only a handful of vegetarian dishes but the one's we tried were very good. The desserts were even better and Joel, our server, was very knowledgeable about all of the entrees and desserts and did a great job with recommendations. We highly recommend this for a great dinner at a good price.

“Great local food and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

The seafood dishes here are excellent; whatever the catch of the day is, you cannot go wrong ordering it. I agree with other reviewers - the mofongo here is the best in the area! The sangria is homemade and excellent, and the pours are generous.
It is great fun to sit on the front porch and watch the local night scene and listen to the latin music from down the street. Both the owner and the staff are very attentive and happy to talk to you about the food and the area.
Eating here was a pleasant change from the El Conquistador and a more authentic Puerto Rican experience. The restaurant is about a 15 minute walk from the hotel marina and well worth the journey.

Hola Jeanne19, I love the fact that you enjoyed the latin music form our neighbours form down the street since since it can become quite a party on Friday nights.
I thank you for your review and it fills me with joy to know that you fully enjoyed your experience.

Thank You
