This restaurant had pretty good seafood. Nothing fancy, simple and clean. The atmosphere is home style and I don't think they've decorated the place for decades. But the food is very good. The red snapper filet with creole sauce is what I ordered. The fried whole snapper is abundant and 2 people can dine on it. Desserts are very dull... More

The seafood, arepas, and pastelillos are delicious and at very reasonable prices. This is not a fancy place, but has good food, and the best lobster at Las Croabas for a reasonable price. When I went to Las Croabas, I always visit this restaurant, I recommend.

This is a small family restaurant in the area east of the country. Its specialty is fish and seafood of the country in the area of Las Croabas in Fajardo. The service, prices , portions and taste are good.

The place is clean, humble, and cosy. They have good prices on seafood. The food was great and service too. The "Piña Colada" is tasty.

Not a fancy place but has good food at very reasonable prices! The seafood, arepas de coco and pastelillos are all delicious! There is no view of the sea. It is just a place to go eat and enjoy the company of family and friends without spending lots of money at Las Croabas, Fajardo, PR.

This is a must if you are in Fajardo. My lobster was huge and delicious. Actually everything our group ordered was awesome. The brothers that run the place we're very nice and friendly. Easy to find of the seven seas balneario.

We had the most wonderful meal last Sunday!!! My husband and I got had the fried red snapper whch as on special for $14.00. It was without a doubt the best fried snapper ever. My guess is it was fresh, not frozen when they fried it and you could tell the difference!! We were also the only non-locals eating lunch... More

There was nothing wrong with this place other than the difficulty finding it and the limited parking. It's clean, kept moderately cool with swamp coolers and the wait staff is fairly prompt and attentive. The menu is basic and while the seafood is fresh, there is nothing innovative or special that would prompt me to recommend driving all those long,... More
