My wife and I were staying at the El Conquistador Hotel, and on our checkout went to this restaurant for lunch with our nephew who is studying in PR. Johann and Jose took care of us. I ordered the Octopus Parrillero. OMG the taste was so good, succulent. I've never had Octopus prepared quite this way. Too bad we had... More

Good food + adequate prices + excellent company = a time to remember. Will come back when they settle in their new location.

We had gone to this restaurant in the marina after a day of fishing. Our fresh fish was prepared perfectly! We had a great meal in this fun, funky restaurant - food and service were excellent!

Fresh seafood served in a fun, funky marina. Currently, El Varadero is tucked away in a gated marina but it is well worth the effort to locate it.

We arrived in Fajardo on a Sunday night. After checking in to our condo, we were advised to head to Varadero grill for dinner. It was a great choice. The seafood was prepared exactly as ordered and the service was stellar. We had the mahi bites, tuna, grouper, and coconut shrimp. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned for... More

My wife told me about the restaurant after browsing tripadvistor. We must have passed the place a lot of times in our past visits to PR, but it never showed up on my maps due to a google maps issue. The place is located inside the gated marina and so you'll have to pass a small guard house. The place... More

Stopped in for a late lunch after La Yunque Rainforest visit. Restaurant right on the water in the marina area with very fun but not too loud Carrie and music playing. Service was ideal, prices reasonable and the food was very good as well. Recommend highly.

We drove to Fajardo from San Juan in hopes to see the bioluminescent bay. We neglected to make reservations so in the end we drove 45 mins just to eat. But it was worth it! GREAT food. The atmosphere was super cool and the service was great. Be sure to try their hot sauces! You can take some home!

Excellent setting to hang out with friends and have a good time + food. With the privacy of the Marina it felt a really safe place to be. Prices=$. Fresh fish. Excelente lugar para pasarla bien con amigos y tener una buena comida. Con la privacidad que brinda la Marina, resulta ser un lugar seguro para estar. Precios=$. Pescado fresco.

Visiting P.R. was made better by our meal here. Relying upon staff for suggestions was the best! Edgardo and staff recommended frozen mojitos to begin...having never had a frozen one, we all tried one...and then, another! The grouper Al Diablo was extremely perfecto..very lightly breaded and covered with Diablo sauce that had a bit of heat that was just right.... More
