Loved our drive down to Fajardo for cold Medallas and lunch. It's a GREAT local spot, with a beautiful view. We watched boats, catamarans, etc going in and out of the marina all afternoon. Food is good 'bar food' quality, we had the shrimp cocktail and the fried fish bites. Loved our afternoon there

Some reviews mention about the local D waiting for the food but it was very quick, the food was really delicious and well presented. Service was outstanding and the music band is good. The view is really amazing

Just a hop, skip, and a jump from El Conquistador and the ferry terminal, if you're looking for somewhere to hang out, enjoy the ocean breeze, and have good Puerto Rican food this place is a must do. The staff is friendly, the food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and the band (that night) was surprisingly exceptional. This is... More

Great view and Sangrias. Food and service fair at best. Waited over an hour for our order. Also they use one of those iPad when you pay and only give you a 15% or 20% option. I would only visit for happy hour in future.

We arrive at peak time on a Saturday Night. Eric our waiter told us upfront that the food could take longer than usual. Our spot in the terrace and the nice weather make us be more understanding I guess. The Sample of appetizers was good, we tried the peach Sangria, good NOT great. Then the main course, CHILLO FRITO stufed... More

We had a wonderful evening at La Ola. The hospitality was perfect. Lybelle was so nice to great us as we arrived and our waiter was extremely attentive. It is a great place for views of the marina, local appetizers main courses as well as cocktails. It was a nice change from the resort restaurants.

As long as you don't go here in a hurry you will have an amazing time and meal. The mojitos are amazing as are the margaritas. Coconut shrimp appetizer was same as in the US. But the seafood stuffed lobster tail was to die for! Took about an hour to get our meal and it wasn't that packed. Take your... More

A really nice setting, very romantic, beautiful view and just the perfect location. The staff was nice and welcoming. BUT we literally waited 1 solid hour before our food arrived! I have never waited this long for a meal at any restaurant. We had a night tour booked for 7.30, ordered our food around 6pm but it didn’t arrive until... More

If your just cruising though Fajardo for a drink or dinner this is the spot to enjoy it. You can watch all the boats coming in and out of the near by marina while having dinner.

Casual outdoor dining. Waterfront with a great view of the small islands like Palomino and Icacos. The menu have a good selection of typical puertorrican food, seafood and meat. Friendly staff. Nice place to enjoy with children, friends and family or for enjoying a romantic evening. BEST VIEW, BEST FOOD, BEST SERVICE!!
