Most expensive beer on the island

Like others, my wife and I ate lunch here while waiting for our flight to Isla Grande. I had the steak wrap which was very good and more than enough for one person. The wife had the beef empanadas which she said were tasty. We also shared an order of mozzarella sticks which were okay. So the... read more

After a delay with my flight I had the chance to get my grub on, I went for the cheeseburger, it was huge & yummy, loved the bread! The service was quite friendly and attentive. <3

If, like me, you plan to arrive on Vieques via tiny 10-pass puddle jumper, you should definitely stop at Isla Nena Cafe as you walk out of the airport! Order their Pain Killer drink! It tastes delicious with its fresh ground nutmeg! And it puts you into the perfect state of island relaxation!! I ordered Pain Killers at almost every... More

If you arrive in Vieques via air, you owe it to yourself to begin your relaxation and joy at this wonderful, funky, outdoor eatery. It is indeed in the airport's postage stamp-sized parking lot, permitting drinkers and diners to watch people trundle into and out of shuttles You, on the other hand, will be eating delicious food, sipping a tasty...

You wouldn't think hanging out in what essentially amounts to an airport parking would be so attractive, but we couldn't wait to return to this fun cafe, where the service was awesome and the food creative and delicious. We had fun exchanges with the owners, and with other guests, and really felt welcome.

We visited Vieques for a week in April. On our departure we stopped here to eat while we waited on our flight. It was amazing! The food was the best we had anywhere on the island. The bartender/owner was a blast to hang out with! I only wish we had found this wonderful place sooner. I can't wait to return!

Love this little gem at the Airport. The food here is excellent with big portions and reasonable prices. We usually will eat here before our flight leaving Vieques, but this trip we also stopped by on Wednesday for the homemade authentic Chinese dumplings - outstanding. The owner, Lyman, is a hilarious character - and it's also nice to spend time... More

Heard a lot about this cute little place but only had a short time before our flight out, so we didn't get to try the food. Instead we had two Coronitas (7 oz Coronas). The total bill, $7, was shockingly high given the reasonable prices everywhere else on the island.

But the food at this little unassuming outdoor bar at the airport is really quite good. Locals actually come here to hang out at the bar even when they aren't flying anywhere. Great place to kill a few minutes before your flight.
