Overall we liked trade winds as our favorite dinner spot on the island. Some minor tweaks would make this place a 5 star, but its just not quite there. The food was excellent. So good in fact, we went back for brunch the next morning, which was also very good. I had the filet mignon for dinner, and it was... More

We had dinner here twice. We sat in the bar area on high tops and enjoyed everything about our experience. The food is great and lots to choose from. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and don't forget to visit the gift shop for a great selection of T-shirts!

We ate a breakfast and a dinner here. Breakfast was FABULOUS, spicy huevos rancheros and also French toast-- and an incredible value for the price. (Breakfast only open to public Friday through Monday, though!). Dinner was pricier, but delicious--those who had whole lobsters said it was the best; my own lobster bits with pasta was a bit tough, but fresh... More

This was a favorite of our meals while on Vieques. 3 in our party ordered lobster and said it was some of the best they had ever had. The kids meals left a lot to be desired... most restaurants we tried didn't have many options for kids unless they ordered off the adult menus.

Dinner at this place was terrific - excellent fresh fish prepared in many styles. The service was also great. It is a little pricy but so is almost everything in Esperanza, but this one is at least worth it. Likely the best dinner we had on the island!

I bought a package with the guesthouse and it comes with $50 certificate to use at their restaurant. Food was awesome. Reservation is suggested if you want a table with great view but make sure to be there early or late night to avoid people. Otherwise, it will be a long wait for the food.

The Tradewinds was our first stop on the island for dinner and ended up being our favorite for the week. The seafood specials are posted on the board. I had the grilled Amberjack with pineapple salsa and Wife had the snapper picatta. We both really liked our dishes. Great view of the sea also!

Our rental house manager told us that Trade Winds serves "the best blueberry pancakes EVER!" Well, I grow my own blueberries and am pretty prideful of my own blueberry pancakes, so we of course had to go to Trade Winds for breakfast the very next day. Everything we ordered was fantastic--including the home made corned beef hash on the side--and... More

We had a good evening at this restaurant and really enjoyed the view. The menu has a great selection of food that would please a lot of different palates. Drinks were good and the appetizers were excellent (see pictures). We had Caribben Lobster and some fish and both were very good. The sides were a bit pedestrian, but were good... More

I had the Caribbean Lobster and my husband had the Dorado. Both were excellent and a great value. We were also pleased with the house wine offered during happy hour. My favorite was the Cesar salad, AMAZING! The servers were attentive and engaging. Lovely setting, lovely meal, lovely conversation. Great experience!
