All I can say is wow about this restaurant. Service was amazing and the food was absolutely incredible. Was pointed to this place by a police officer and was so grateful he did that. Everything we ate was absolutely amazing. TriFongo, Yuca fries and empanadillas were unbelievable. Can't wait to come back to old San Juan if only to eat... More

Needed a quick lunch before heading onto our cruise ship. Like that makes any sense. Recommended by many locals. Had a trifongo with creole sauce and a cold beer. Wife had bites of my meal and a margarita. Great food and great service

If you have never tried Puerto Rican food, you need to go Fefo's! The best trifongo EVER! The local staple will melt in your mouth. The mero chicharrones are probably the freshest fish "and chips" I have ever had. If there are no tables available, it will be worth the wait. I left over a week ago, but am still... More

Went yesterday to eat and there was a cockroach infestation. Cockroaches crawling from behind the frames in the wall, on top of the bar, we got one underneath the wax paper on my sandwich. They were everywhere!!!!. Waiter apologized but they didn't closed after, even after noticing and admitting us that they have a cockroach infestation. UNACCEPTABLE>

I recently ate here with two other people, and the food--especially the trifongo--was very good. The restaurant is simple, and has the feel of a down-home / local place. The prices are excellent and the service is good.

Super slow service and my tapas the Platano relleno de pollo were horrible tasted like pure butter. Won't come back. It took forever to get our food, they forgot my drink ans then the food left everything to be desired

My goodness, it was soooo delicious!! I was just passing by on the street and this place wasn't too crowded, as it was around 4:30PM, but after visiting El Morro, I was starving. I ordered the Trifongo with chicken, & it was incredibly delicious!! I tried mofongo at other places and it was not as tasty as Fefo's. Their chicken... More

After much hype about the place I decided to check it out. DELICIOUS!! The Spanish tapas was amazing as well as the Linguini with steak. The prices have been the best I have seen for Old San Juan and the service was just as awesome. Must stop by!!
