Can see why you wait a while to get a seat. The food was delicious. The waiter could have been more attentive, but he was not terrible. We got some areppos they were very tasty. Highly recommend this place.

“Probably our favorite restaurant in the world!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

My wife, adult daughter, and I first visited La Estacion three years ago when staying nearby in Fajardo. We loved it then and hoped to be able to return on a future visit to Puerto Rico. We just had the pleasure and this time were joined by our other daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids.

Because we had small children with us, we arrived as the restaurant opened at 5:00 pm. Since it was still light out, we chose to sit indoors rather than at one of the torchlit outdoor tables. One of the things we like the most about this place is that the typical Puerto Rican dishes, such as rice and beans, mofongo, and fried plantain tostones are clearly labeled as vegetarian. In fact, it is easy to put together an entirely vegetarian and delicious platter composed of 4 side dishes. What the place really specializes in is barbecued dishes. My wife and I shared a whole grilled red snapper. It was probably the freshest fish we have ever had since it had just been delivered by the supplier while we were ordering our drinks! As long as I am on the subject of drinks, I must add that my daughter and I agree that our Mojitos were the best we have ever had. We ended the meal by sharing a couple of great local style desserts: flan with cherry sauce and a banana filled pastry. This was a great ending to an amazing meal.

By the time we left at about 6:30, people were lined up to get in -- on a Tuesday night -- true testimony to the greatness of this place.

A final note: staff was very friendly and accommodating of our large group with children. They also spoke fluent English.

“Funky and wonderful”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Romantic little place with great, fresh, local food and wonderful service. Had no problem getting a nice table outside even though it was a busy night. The hostess and our server were great - welcoming and helpful with recommendations.
