El Varadero Seaside Grill

El Varadero Seaside Grill Review

El Varadero's tagline says it all—"nothing fancy, just great food"—and at this no-frills seaside spot perched on the docks of pretty Marina Puerto Chico, San Juan native Charlie Barrett has nailed the recipe for success. Simple yet cozy nautical touches serve as the backdrop for grilled fresh tuna, mahi mahi, and snapper, as diners while away the hours watching the ships ebb and flow along the docks. An extensive appetizer list rounds out the menu. At lunch be sure to order the two-fisted creole burger, a quintessentially Puerto Rican invention, topped with fried plantains and tangy creole sauce. Kids will love the mahi nuggets, and for those who like fire with their food, this friendly hangout makes five different kinds of hot sauce.
