Best in Vieques

This place is the best surprise in Vieques. It's a small bar on the airport parking that you would never thing had brilliant food. But it most certainly does. The owner and his wife are extremely nice and the food is phenomenal.

This cute little outdoor cafe at the airport has some really killer food! The breakfast sandwich is served on a big delicious sesame bun and the scrambled eggs were light and fluffy and there was an ample amount of bacon! They have some of the best bartenders on the island too! The sporty chick with dark hair made a killer... More

We have drinks here a lot but this time we eat lunch. The service is awesome here. The food is even better. I ordered Blue Moon and she keep them coming. The food was great but the rice it came with was out of this world. We will make this a lunch spot for many trips to come.

Try the homemade dumplings at Isla Nena Cafe in the Vieques airport parking lot. They are only available certain days of the week. Pork and vegetable...fried or steamed...delicious!!!!!

We had some time to kill between check out and our flight so we decided to spend it here at the Isla Nena Café. The owner was a really nice guy and his wife is the chef. The food was good but a little pricey. On the other hand, if you look at it as airport food, it was way... More

At this cafe, they usually have two options for breakfast: eggs+meat of choice+toast or an egg sandwich. Both times we got the egg+cheese+ham sandwich because they are delicious!!! Made on the fresh air-rise bread, they always hit the spot. Lunch looked really great too!

After staying a week at the W we had our final lunch on the island at this cafe. The food was so good and it was really refreshing not to pay the W's ridiculous prices for lunch. I only wish we had ventured over here sooner. If you're staying at the W, do yourself a favor and take the free... More

Stumbled on this by accident on during a rainy day. We didn't see it as we came in originally. Some of the best food, entertainment (by bartender Lyman (sp?) and drinks on the island. You can totally come as you are. Turned into our favorite water hole!

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 food is okay,... 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
