I had the skewered chicken which was sooooo good! It had a marinade that made it amazing! Our daughter found what she liked too - plain pasta! The seafood my husband and son got was very good as well! A must if you visit San Pedro.

Stopped at El Fogon for lunch during a day trip to San Pedro. Had the Chicken Tostada special and some fish balls. Very reasonably priced and fresh, authentic food. Definitely recommend checking it out if in San Pedro looking for something to eat.

Usually have the restaurant is locals. If that tells you anything. If you are new to San Pedro it might not be easy to find but go to the airstrip area and ask for directions. Then it will be a 1 minute walk. I recommend the conch, grouper, and even the pork chops. They also have more exotic specials. Cow foot soup, gibnut, lobster. I usually get the conch when in season.
