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.

We ate all around the island for a week and this was the best meal we had during our visit! I couldn't recommend it enough. The octopus appetizer is delicious and the view of the dock is pretty. The shipwreck burger was one of the best burger I've ever had. I was torn on appetizers and the server let us... More

Of all the places we ate during our week in Puerto Rico, this one was the most underwhelming of all. We got there about 9pm so we were the only table outside. Service was very slow (yes, I know PR is slow in general but this was super slow). My youngest daughter, 10, typically eats a kids meal. Restaurant has... More

A little pricey for what you get?!? What are you comparing us with. We dont have a kids menu because we locals and most of the world teach our kids to eat adult food not "happy meals". The fact that your witress didn't seem too concerned with your issues, i will address that in our next employee meeting. That is... More

Eat inside or out on the deck. Very casual restaurant with good food. There is a long bar with tv's on the inside. Look for the Villa Marina Yacht Club sign as the restaurant sign is not visible from the road. The marina is gated so you will need to stop at the gatehouse before entering.

We visited twice during our stay. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Great burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Servers are attentive and very friendly. When we returned another day for dinner they were busy. All tables were full once we were seated. Our server warned us that there would be a wait. Dinner probably took 1 1/2 to come... More

Nice restaurant close to El Conquistador resort. Nice food , attentive polite staff and all speak excellent English. This is a no frills place. But the food is delicious. Our kids found something they liked also. It is located in the Villa Marina by the water. Had the fried whole fish and mofongo with steak.
