Stopped in after looking for places to each and it was everything the reviews said it was. The food was delicious and the portions are huge. We asked the waiter about the house sangria and it was the BEST sangria ever!

After selecting this restaurant because of trip advisor reviews, I was still surprised with the service and quality. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated with beach flair. The sangria was some of the best I’ve ever had- fresh juices and multiple different flavors. I had...More

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

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.
