It took us a while to find the new location (tucked inside the Villa Marina itself!) but it was worth the adventure! The food was incredible and Carlos, our waiter, was the nicest person! You should definitely make this stop while in Fajardo!

This has made our shortlist of places we have to return to on other trips to Puerto Rico. The staff, the views, the service are extraordinary. And the food and drinks were out of this world. My churrasco was tremendous, our very little kids loved the mahi mahi nuggets (!). We thoroughly liked sitting out on the marina. My smoky... More

We enjoyed our food so much here that we changed our plans so we could eat here again. Lots of different homemade hot sauces which my husband and son loved, good service and great food.

Went there with a group of seven on 22 April because it looked like the best restaurant close to our rented condo at Pena Mar. Almost everyone had an excellent meal but two people experienced some issues with receiving something different that their order. Our waiter, Carlos Velez, was truly outstanding and did whatever he could to compensate. Overall, not... More

As their ad says: nothing fancy, but good food. Had great dinner and great service. Waiter Carlos made it a wonderful experience. A little tricky to find, it is inside Villa Marina off Av Marina View (go thru security gate), but well worth the trip.

First off, the staff here is perhaps the best in Puerto Rico: well trained, polite, efficient. And the ambiance is outstanding, right on the dock in a marina! However, there are issues. The waitress told us the swordfish was "fresh" when we later learned it was "fresh frozen." Why did was ask? The fish was dry, sinewy, like cloth. It... More

Last minute dinner planned and was best experience we had while in PR. Food was excellent, atmosphere was fantastic and server Carlos V. was extremely welcoming and friendly. Cannot recommend enough. Prices were great and we can't wait to come back!

We loved this restaurant. We had four teenagers with us on vacation and they loved their meals to the point they wanted to return there for another meal. We thought this was the best restaurant in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Carlos Veiler was our server and he made sure each and everyone of us was satisfied. The service was top notch.... More

The food was great as was the atmosphere. My husband had burger with plantains, bacon and bbq sauce. He said it was awesome. I had the shrimp with vodka pasta and it was quite good. We enjoyed the band as well, but don't recall the name.
