While on vacation in Puerto Rico over the Thanksgiving holiday, we were undecided on what to do for turkey-day dinner. Our rental house had an oven, but wasn't really set up to cook for 11. A random stranger at wal mart made two recommendations in Fajardo, near El Conquistador hotel. La Estacion was able to make reservations for Thanksgiving dinner... More

We recently visited La Estacion and had a disappointing experience. We had been here several times previously during our stays in Fajardo and really liked the place. However, this time was different. Upon arrival, they had botched our reservation... we emailed earlier in the day & received confirmation but upon arrival, no res. They quickly recovered and seated us,which was... More

First, the website says nothing about getting reservations, but you should, because there could be a long wait if you don't. Anyway, it describes itself as a newyorican bbq & grill, which is a good description. Pretty much everything we ordered was well prepared; pork as both main course (medallions) and appetizer (pinchos), mofongo (mashed plaintains), a corn soup special,... More

Food was delicious, drinks were super! The patio is beautiful and has a fun atmosphere. Pedro our server was attentive and we opted to sit inside, which is also very pretty. I would definitely return, guests were all very happy. Desserts were good as well. Pay them a visit, you won't be sorry!

La Estacion (restaurant/bar) and neighboring Auto (cafe) are a renovated gas station and have a wonderful ambiance. Lorna was our waitress at La Estacion. She is charming as well as fluent in Spanish and English. Not only did she make sure we knew the specials but more importantly the subtleties of the dishes we were most interested in. We shared...

This restaurant was recommended by the bellman of our hotel. Great recommendation! The ambience is casual offering outdoor and indoor (AC) seating. The staff is very welcoming when entering the restaurant. At the table the server mentioned the special of the day, every thing very detailed. The food was just incredible tasty! A must if being in the area of... More

hard to explain exactly what made this so great. I was on a trip with family and friends, and this place was recommended by a local and we figured "what the heck". From the get go this was great. It's in an old gas station (hence the name) and the atmosphere was just perfect. We sat outside, ordered some drinks... More

We went there because we saw the good reviews on Tripadvisors. It was honestly the best meal we had while in PR. We stayed at the El Conquistador hotel Waldorf Astoria and it is just across the street. We both had the lobster and it was AMAZING! All of the food was great. The service was quick and friendly.
