Equates to a neighborhood bar, cheap drinks and plenty of locals. Food was decent - had the mofungo stuffed with shrimp and hubby had the fried pork - and reasonably priced but no atmosphere to entice me to stay for a while.

As a late afternoon lunch stop, this place satisfied all our needs. We went on a Sunday afternoon when all the locals were out enjoying the nearby park and vendors were supplying local treats. The staff sat us at a table right away - we...More

Of all the places we've eaten in this area this week, this is the worst!!! Inattentive servers, seafood not fresh, very unwelcoming atmosphere! Try another right down the road.

We brought fresh fish and lobster to El Racar twice after spearfishing trips, they hooked us up right!

Excellent grilled local snapper with a side of red beans and rice. Conch dumpling as appetizer. Fair sangria. Friendly and efficient waitstaff. We were the only tourists in the place. There was a sizeable group of locals eating when we did. Beautiful sea view.

The food is great for a very good price and drinks are very reasonably priced!! It may not look very attractive from the outside but its a local favorite.

This is a convenient place to eat if you're going to do the bioluminescent bay tour in Fajardo. The food was good, though the service was a tad on the slow side, at least for us. It seemed that other tables got their food faster.

I've been to Puerto Rico twice and stayed at El Conquistador which is a ten minute walk to the local restaurants. The restaurant is right where all the locals hang and eat their meals after a long full day of work. I've gone back twice...More
