Unassuming from the outside, the interior is very cool- driftwood decorated lamps, gorgeous wood tables- the atmosphere alone is a reason to eat here. I am not a huge fish fan, but upon recommendation from our server, my wife and I split the fish of...More

Went to this place on a whim, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Had a fresh snapper that was amazing. Prices are a little high but it’s completely worth it. From the drinks to the food, 10/10.

I chose El Pescador because it was close to my kayak location, and boy am I glad I did. From the warm, friendly staff to the charming atmosphere and amazing food, El Pescador is a win. Their Conch is unbelievably tender, and the Mofungo was...More

Great drinks. Happy hour 4-6 and includes their unique drinks. We skipped the appetizers but good selection. I got the whole lobster ($24 a pound isn’t bad at all). Hubby got the red snapper and wow!!! Great sides and sauces, if you miss this place...More

Great food, and large portions and creative drinks and awesome ambience and vibe. The decor and Location are great and worth a drive from San Juan to include the Bio Bay and Dinner here in Las Croabas.

A retired owner / chef from Rest. Hasta Manana Steak House in San Juan P.R. after 22 years returns to the game with Rest. El Pescador in Fajardo PR. I got to admit that I forgot the joy of seeing customers enjoying my cooking that I start seeing again in El Pescador. Now in a new rustic location. Come, see, taste and appreciate what Puerto Rican flavor is all about.
