Our 15yr old daughter hated the looks of this place, but since she wasn't paying we were staying. We really like a dive bar/joint kind of place and this was good. We waited a while to figure out if they do table service, but they do if you order a meal/entree. We had the kingfish and the red snapper and... More

We visited this small open-air restaurant 3 times during our stay in Fajardo. The food is simple, but good. We stopped in one last time on a Sunday late afternoon. I was surprised by how crowded it was. They even had karaoke going on. We met the owner on 2 different occasions and he gave us some free samples of... More

Reviews were mixed on this place. While it wasn't bad, it wasn't great either. Food was decent. Steak was tough and chewy. Conch empanadas were delicious. Service was good enough. Great views of the harbour. Overall, just not our kind of place.

Equates to a neighborhood bar, cheap drinks and plenty of locals. Food was decent - had the mofungo stuffed with shrimp and hubby had the fried pork - and reasonably priced but no atmosphere to entice me to stay for a while.

As a late afternoon lunch stop, this place satisfied all our needs. We went on a Sunday afternoon when all the locals were out enjoying the nearby park and vendors were supplying local treats. The staff sat us at a table right away - we had the pick of the place to sit. The menu had a wide variety of... More

Of all the places we've eaten in this area this week, this is the worst!!! Inattentive servers, seafood not fresh, very unwelcoming atmosphere! Try another right down the road.

We brought fresh fish and lobster to El Racar twice after spearfishing trips, they hooked us up right!

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.
