We came here for dinner and asked for 3 very simple changes (e.g. instead of having only chicken if they could substitute some chicken for vegetables (which they have on the menu in other dishes)). We always got a fast and not very nice "No!!" as an answer. No explanation as to why such small changes were not possible, the... More

We ate breakfast at Belly Button's everyday while in Vieques. The good and drinks were great and the ambiance and music was perfect for the scenery.... chill and relaxing! The only thing I would change is the quality of the coffee. It's American coffee, don't expect Puerto Rican (stronger) coffee. Would definitely go back!

This was a fun place to hang out in Esperanza. I had breakfast and dinner there. for dinner we had paella it was awesome but my favorite was the blue belly drinks they were so good in that hot sun . Friendly staff and great view from the tables.

We stopped here for lunch one day based on the numerous positive ratings on tripadvisor. Very uninspired menu of burgers, chicken, salads etc. The food was nothing special and exactly the type of thing that we could get in the states. You sit at picnic tables right on the Malecon so it has a nice view going for it but... More

Usually this is a great place to get a quick a excellent bite to eat for lunch. The reuben sandwich is delicious! Our experience there this time however was a little different in that we had to wait quite a while for our order. Apparently a big crowd came in just before us and they also had a take-out order...

I wish we had gone here sooner, the breakfast was amazing. And what a cute little place. We had some kind of a cinnamon French toast thing that was absolutely fantastic. The drinks at 10am were also great LOL. It's got a great view of Esperanza as well. Wish the breakfast hours were a little longer though, maybe til 11:30... More

Belly Button's, Bananas, Trade Winds are pretty much interchangeable. Above average bar food. Laid back. Nothing here will blow you away but you come out with reasonable bill and you are eating in paradise so not much to complain about.
