I think my kids would vote this the best meal they had during our visit to Puerto Rico and we had some good meals. Husband loved it too. Slow roasted chicken was tender and full of flavor, great sauce on the wings app, lobster sandwich and Mofango. Service was great and our waitress gave us the history of the restaurant... More

Know matter where you go in Puerto Rico you have to try this place. We had the ribs, and also had the chicken. The chicken is the best I have ever had. The menu you find online is out dated. If you get the chicken make sure you get the Mac and Cheese ( made with 4 cheeses and sprinkled... More

Went with my parents and wife today ( Sunday Jan 8 2017 around 430pm). It was the only place near Las Croabas were we found a parking at. Not many clients. The staff goes above and beyond. They treat locals very nice just ignore the lady that recieves you since she has people issues. The Restaurant was an old gas... More

We came upon this restaurant after a Google search in the area we were in. The initial impression before we even got out of the car was that we had made a mistake. No way! The curb appeal belies this treasure. Rustic in appearance, it is sophisticated in the level of service and the magnificent food. The hostess verbally took... More

I have been to this restaurant three times. Each meal my family and I has been amazing. The food is extremely fresh. Their specialty is Caribbean Lobster. I high recommend you get this item. Other items we like on the menu is the NY Strip and BBQ Ribs.

Amazing re-use of a abandoned gas station. I personally driving by would never have stopped but we were meeting friends who raved about the place. Hence, don't judge the book by....The owner who visited each table New Years Eve was a pleasure and you could feel the pride she takes in her place. Seafood was outstanding and she uses smokers...

Pretty good local and Cuban food. Nice place with good AC and good, fast service. It can be pricey however, especially if you add alcoholic drinks.

Ill-informed hostess kept us waiting 30 minutes longer than necessary. Once seated, food arrived way too quickly and our check came within 30 minutes of sitting down. Food was decent, but not worth the wait. The bar only accepts cash.

We asked a shop owner in Luquillo (Monkey Threads - cute, affordable clothes, check it out) for a restaurant recommendation and she told us La Estacion was her favorite place. We dined there Christmas Eve and what an incredible experience. It is a converted gas station and the ambience is fun and hip. Everyone was friendly, from the bartender to... More
