Fun stop

We popped in here on our scooter to have a drink. They were not to far off from closing but they took good care of us. The owner and his wife work there full time and she is a HOOT! She is very honest and blunt and hilarious! We greatly enjoyed her conversation. Drinks were good as well as the... read more

We were in Vieques for a week and had a chance to try almost every restaurant on the Malecon and this ended up being our favourite. Nothing is that cheap on the Malecon, but we found the prices among the lowest here and anything containing pulled pork will be delicious here. Service was adequate for a casual dining restaurant and... More

My 2 companions and I ate here twice. One lunch and one dinner. Came back after my lunch visit because my fish and chips was tasty, service was good and prices were moderate. On my second visit, I had a pulled pork sandwich. Pork is kind around here. Note that all the restaurants I visited in Esperanza were "al fresco"... More

Six of us went for the paella specal. We found it dry, and not full of "stuff." I had one piece of sausage and very few bits of seafood. I will say the sald was fresh and tasty. Also, the service was super friendly, and the chef gave us leftovers from the paella pot at the end of the night.... More

Hi Judy...Thank you for taking your time to comment on my paella. I am terribly sorry you got a bad scoop. Looks like you are a savy contributor (level5) but I must say that I am a bit unhappy with your review....First and mostly, I was there, the paella was there and you did not give me a chance to...

Monfungo is an amazing band that plays at Belly Buttons on Friday nights. Great dancing to the oldies.

Definitely one of our favorite spots island to just sit back, relax, and enjoy good food and drinks. We enjoyed a few breakfasts there as well as Wednesday Paella night, which I highly recommend..one of the best food experiences on the island! Plus we can always count on Belly Buttons to watch our favorite sporting games that we don't want... More

I'm an airbnb host in Vieques and I was invited by my guests from Sweden for breakfast here as a thank you for the Life Coaching Session included in their stay at my house! I was very happy because it was a very good veggie moler with toasts, coffee and great new friends who also have an airbnb in Sweden!... More

Expensive for the quality of the food. I ordered a burger and fries and it was meh. There are better places to eat along the malecon.

On vacation, even breakfast comes with desert. Ice cream is a great way to start the day! The tropics is a great place.

This may be the most informal and least expensive restaurant in Esperanza. Lunches are simple and quick, ice cream is available, frozen cocktails (pina colada, etc.) are served in plastic cups. Good view. Service is quite good - one of our party actually sent back her burger patty because it was too well done, and the waitress brought another quickly... More
