Excellent grilled local snapper with a side of red beans and rice. Conch dumpling as appetizer. Fair sangria. Friendly and efficient waitstaff. We were the only tourists in the place. There was a sizeable group of locals eating when we did. Beautiful sea view.

The food is great for a very good price and drinks are very reasonably priced!! It may not look very attractive from the outside but its a local favorite.

This is a convenient place to eat if you're going to do the bioluminescent bay tour in Fajardo. The food was good, though the service was a tad on the slow side, at least for us. It seemed that other tables got their food faster.

Went for early dinner.. Food was great but our waitress had little English. Made it hard to order since couldn't ask questions and menu wasn't very helpful for those of us limited to English. Shrimp stew was great. Sara had shrimp creole w mofongo which was great also. Sangria wasn't very good but medalla beer was cold!

Stuffed lobster with shrimp and mofongo on the side. Now that was an unbelievable meal. The drinks and food at this local spot are delicious. This restaurant is dear to my heart because I was here last year and I returned again this year. I was completely surprised that the staff remembered me and my best friend. They were very... More

I've been to Puerto Rico twice and stayed at El Conquistador which is a ten minute walk to the local restaurants.

I've gone back twice for the Stuffed lobster which is filled with shrimp, scallops and lobter-soo delicious. Ricky and... More

The location of this local open air eatery sits right across from the ocean and is enjoyed by the locals and tourists who choose to explore just outside the El Conquistador resort. But be prepared to also be joined by the local roosters, chickens, and dogs just outside, which offers a unique feel. The food is great and a welcome... More

The food was good and the price was average. There is a little bit of a view across the street to the water. We had the tostones and mofongo stuffed with chicken. Both were good.

This is not a fancy restaurant so don't expect too much, it's an eatery where local people stop by for a bite and a beer. We enjoyed our arepas, dumplings and mofongo.
