We visited Don Esteban while staying at Las Casitas Village Resort in Fajardo. We were looking for a more affordable and authentic local dining experience than what was offered at our resort. I had received a recommendation from a friend of a friend that was local. We made a reservation for 13 people....3 families...and had two tables....one adults and one kids. The service from the very beginning was amazing. Alex served the adult table. He gave us detailed information on the dishes, even steering us towards what was best that night. My husband and I both ordered the skirt steak with sweet plantains, and shared a side of trifongo. Everything was delicious! The steak was so tender and flavorful! For dessert we had tres leches which was delightful. Others in our party tried the grouper, the conch, the oxtail soup. All were very pleased with the food. In the end, Alex also told us how to make sweet plantains and mofongo at home! The atmosphere was casual, welcoming, and would be great for friends and family. I will say that we took a cab here, which was so good, because I don't think we would have found it ourselves. It was behind the Walmart I think.
