We drove to Fajardo from San Juan in hopes to see the bioluminescent bay. We neglected to make reservations so in the end we drove 45 mins just to eat. But it was worth it! GREAT food. The atmosphere was super cool and the service was great. Be sure to try their hot sauces! You can take some home!

Excellent setting to hang out with friends and have a good time + food. With the privacy of the Marina it felt a really safe place to be. Prices=$. Fresh fish. Excelente lugar para pasarla bien con amigos y tener una buena comida. Con la privacidad que brinda la Marina, resulta ser un lugar seguro para estar. Precios=$. Pescado fresco.

Visiting P.R. was made better by our meal here. Relying upon staff for suggestions was the best! Edgardo and staff recommended frozen mojitos to begin...having never had a frozen one, we all tried one...and then, another! The grouper Al Diablo was extremely perfecto..very lightly breaded and covered with Diablo sauce that had a bit of heat that was just right.... More

When we first pulled up to the gated entrance, we were sure our GPS took us to the wrong location. Once we made it inside, we still weren't sure but as soon as we walked up, we were welcomed with a large smile and everything was great from that point on. We were celebrating a significant birthday. The location, atmosphere,... More

We loved El Varadero- every little bit of our visit - from a friendly and helpful response when calling to make sure they were open (they are getting ready to move) to chatting with Eggie to the perfect piña colada and Mofongo made this a great final night in Fajardo. I cannot wait to visit again and see their new... More

Extremely service prone and very pleased for their treatment to the customers. They do know their dishes and can assist you on your selections. Even though a server is assigned and takes your order, all servers are attentive to your needs and assist you and without interruption make sure you enjoy your visit. The meals are exquisite and I really... More

Food is great as always. This peaceful seaside restaurant is a real gem. Ambience is great, servers are very attentive, the kitchen keeps sending out great quality food. The homemade "pique" variety is really good. Lots of different flavors. Whats not to love about this place?

If you're staying a El Conquistador it is worth a visit! We visited for lunch, tricky to find as you can't see the sign coming down from the hotel (it faces the other way). If you see a 2nd marina on your right you went too far! This place feels like a real neighbor spot. It is casual, but the... More

Recently we were doing some business in the area (we are from Ponce) and we visited El Varadero Seaside Grill for our first time ever. We have been exceptionally served by Joel. Excellent service, he suggests us the best options (really best), appetizers and main dishes were awesome. Tangy sauces, good cocktails, out of this world Keylime cheesecake... Prices? Cheaper...

A little hard to find, small sign by road, also have to park about a block away outside the marina gate but once you find it, you're in business. Ate there three times, tried different apps and main seafood each time and not disappointed once.
