Before we flew out one of the locals at our hotel advised that we stop by "the little café at the airport, have some fish tacos and beer before leaving." We are SO GLAD we took his advice! Best fish tacos ever! The service was so fast too. We literally had 30 mins to eat, drink and then take off... More

The food at the Isla Nena Cafe is without a doubt one of the best places to eat on Vieques. While located at the airport, the open air cafe has not only American and Puerto Rican fare, the owner's wife Shulain who is a native of China whips up some of the best chinese dumplings and wontons in the Caribbean....

we stopped here on the way back from snorkeling the mosquito pier, and granted, we were hungry but we did not expect this. First, Limon was very friendly, and made us feel at home. Then we had those pork dumplings. They were soooo good. Large portion, it could have been a meal in itself. We split a grilled fish sandwich.... More

Excellent food across the board! We ordered 6 different entrees the two times we ate here while on vacation. We had the fish sandwich, fish platter, BLT, pork bites, fish tacos and pork dumplings. Each item was excellent and fresh. Lots of locals congregate here for good reason. Definitely worth a special trip over without an arrival or departure from... More

Ummm..trip advisor nation, you really let me down on this one. it is at the airport so I guess that folks try it as a result, but fish tacos were not very good at all, just lots of mayo-ish sauce and the fish had a funky taste to it, I asked what it was and he said tilapia, umm, ok... More

Our group of 5 ate here when we arrived and when we left - once at breakfast and once at lunch. No one had a single word of complaint about the "food court" at the Vieques airport. Lots of locals came for the food - no flight in or out. Really like the recycled cozies for the beer. Homemade hot... More

Stopped in after diving - delicious bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches! Open, outdoor seating made for a very nice morning.

There's a reason why you see so many locals at this airport cafe- the food is DELICIOUS! We returned multiple times for lunch on our week long stay to Vieques. Lyman is such a sweetheart- but watchout for the Chichaito shots :) They'll sneak up on ya!

I dined at this spot right before leaving the island and the food and atmosphere were great. It was one of the best burgers I've had in a long time. Make this your last stop before you leave!
