Restaurant suggestions near El Conquistador?

We will be spending 4 nights at the El conquistador with our 3 children - ages 14,12 and 9. We are looking for a few suggestions for dinner outside of the hotel. We love eating by the water or outside and don't mind paying for great food/atmosphere. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Hello you will be very close to Luquillo beach. There are alot of outdoor restaurants near by. There is also a restaurant called don Esteban close to hwy#3. They serve everything from chicken to lobster. It is operated by a Cuban and Puerto Rican couple. You will love the outdoor patio and it is clean. Have fun and be safe.

Less than a mile down the road (turn right outside the main hotel gate) are La Estacion (outdoor dining in an old gas station, but it's really good) and (a minute farther) Calizo (also with outdoor seating), but neither are near water. The Ballyhoo bar/grill at the resort is down in the resort marina and can be pretty good. There also are a few places in the marina in Las Croabas where the biobay tours launch that people seem to like, although we haven't tried those.

Luquillo (mentioned in the post above) also has good options.

There is also Olelelolai, is a puertorrican Spanish mix. With fresh sea food and good meat choices too. It is located on a cliff top with a great view of the marina.

Kasavista is an easy walk for your family and they have delicious food for 1/2 the cost of El Con restaurants. A big plus is it will not cost you a taxi fare. From the marina, exit the resort to left and walk to the town park, where the bio bay tours are and you will see Kasavista at the far side of the park. The walk is safe and flat terrain. Or ask at the resort for specific directions. Their food was awesome! We also loved El Estacion - mentioned above - we ate there 2 nights in a row, but you will want to taxi or go by rental car.

What the Luquillo kioskos lack in atmosphere they more than make up in food quality. Everything is made fresh; they are very tourist-friendly, while not being just for tourists. They are really nice for lunch, and the Luquillo beach is worth visiting if you want to walk along a long beach, which you can't do at El Con's Palomino Island, where the beach is shorter.
