We had a wonderful evening at La Ola. The hospitality was perfect. Lybelle was so nice to great us as we arrived and our waiter was extremely attentive. It is a great place for views of the marina, local appetizers main courses as well as cocktails. It was a nice change from the resort restaurants.

As long as you don't go here in a hurry you will have an amazing time and meal. The mojitos are amazing as are the margaritas. Coconut shrimp appetizer was same as in the US. But the seafood stuffed lobster tail was to die for! Took about an hour to get our meal and it wasn't that packed. Take your... More

A really nice setting, very romantic, beautiful view and just the perfect location. The staff was nice and welcoming. BUT we literally waited 1 solid hour before our food arrived! I have never waited this long for a meal at any restaurant. We had a night tour booked for 7.30, ordered our food around 6pm but it didn’t arrive until... More

If your just cruising though Fajardo for a drink or dinner this is the spot to enjoy it. You can watch all the boats coming in and out of the near by marina while having dinner.

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!

I gave it one, but it should be none. We were a group of 14, and waited for almost to hour to get our food. Which was nothing out or the ordinary. Sadly, my plate never came. And when it was finally arrived, the rest of the group was already finish they're plate. I don't recommended this place to no... More

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.

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!!
