Stopped in for lunch and cocktails and left happy! Naomi our server was excellent! She served up great food and mojitos and excellent advice on where to get groceries, which snorkel tour to go on, and other restaurants to visit! Went back 2 more times!

Sat on their dining room deck. Typical fare. Would go back to enjoy a drink and a light snack. The only real treat was sitting on the deck - view of the local marina. Not much else to say.

Very nice restaurant by the sea. It is located right at the entrance/exit of a large Marina and with a very nice view of Palomino's Island. Food is casual, as well as drinks. Just take into account wind. Don't go there right before any celebration where you've spent lots on hairdresser!! Hahaha!!!

The location is superb! Right on the water next to all the marinas. It can get a little hot because its open. Food is average and expensive for what it is. However the hors d'oeuvre are very good and service was great.

The restaurant has beautiful views of the the Fajardo marina and I can see Las Casitas Village from here. The food was great it was so delicious and tasty. The drinks refreshing natural. And this is my second time visit here I really like it!! I'll come back for more!

No complains about food quality and service tough. You can enjoy a good view while lunch or dinner watching the boats passing close by. Nice enviroment and the red snapper went well done and with not greasy. A dinner with 1 mojito was around $45 + tip.

Stopped there first night in Fajardo, sangria was great, seating on the balcony overlooking the water was nice, but was looking for more seafood than the two selections they offered. Service was good, but all things considered, would probably lean towards one of the other seafood restaurants on the water.

Thank jerseywolf

Casual outdoor dining. Waterfront with a great view of the small islands like Palomino and Icacos. The menu have a good selection of typical puertorrican food, seafood and meat. Friendly staff. Nice place to enjoy with children, friends and family or for enjoying a romantic evening. BEST VIEW, BEST FOOD, BEST SERVICE!!
