So, let me get this straight, Miss I hate the world and never smile server. I'm on vacation, I'm supposed to tip you, yet a dumb breakfast sandwich takes 35 minutes to show up, I have to get my own coffee and I'm only allowed one refill? Well, since I'm a glutton for punishment, not only did I stay, I... More

Belly Button's is what you'd expect for a laid-back island watering hole. Lots of open air drinking/dining areas, friendly waitstaff, great people watching on the main drag (malecon) of Esperanza, decent bar menu (the fried pickles were delicious), great music mix on the sound system. We used it for take-out as well as an easy stop to fuel up when... More

The food is excellent here. I went here for breakfast and it was done in a timely manner and it was so great. There isn't a lot of barite here. Just your basic breakfast like pancakes, French toast and eggs. However the food was great. The customer service was horrible though. My waitress seemed to have an attitude and she... More

Belly Buttons has a few sandwiches that pack well and are good for the beach, Might be considered a tad expensive for what you get, but stop complaining - you're on vacation.

Food was perfectly okay. What made this place special was the owner/hostess. She was charming and friendly, gave us tips about the island, and made us feel very welcome.

Mr. Buttons makes the best breakfast around. We go there for a huge early meal - french toast, eggs, bacon, fruit and delicious coffee - and then go to snorkel at the pristine reefs all day.

We've always enjoyed breakfast here on our trips to Vieques. This time we tried Paella night. What a treat. The meal was delicious and the pace was relaxed and comfortable.

like that its small and its got a good view, but be prepared for long waits. It runs on 'island time'. if you're not in a rush, you'll be able to put down 2-3 Medalla before your food comes. Enjoy

Good food and service. One of the many restaurants on the Malecon that you will enjoy if staying in Esperanza for more than a few days.
