Nice place, great food

I had the mahi mahi which was perfectly cooked. We arrived at 9:30 pm and kitchen was closing. So i recommend you arrive prior to 9:30 or you won't be accepted. I definitely recommend this place

The price was a little high however the food was tasty. I think if the prices where slightly lower it would be a sure home run. The ambiance is pretty. Enjoyed dinner.

I was so excited about going to Billi but unfortunately did not have a nice experience. I called the restaurant twice to make a reservation for a B-Day and the day we showed up at the restaurant they did not found the reservation. They had a slow service, did not have one of the main dishes like pork chops, did... More

If eating fresh local fish and lobster is what you are looking for in Vieques, look no more because this is the place. The restaurant has a casual atmosphere right in front of the main road in the Malecon area. The owner showed us the fresh catch that we would be served before ordering. The service was good and the... More

Took the crew to dinner in Esperanza and found our first choice was not open on a Monday. So we went next door to Bili and ordered the entire tapas menu - 17 dishes among 8 people. It turned out to be as good as a 17 course tasting menu at many mainland restaurants but without the pretension that sometimes... More

We were referred to Bili by the staff at El Blok. My wife and I didn't explore other restaurants after eating at Bili. The staff is friendly and the food was outstanding. They have a cheeseburger with white cheese that is to die for and we've been craving it since. If you visit Vieques, you have to go to Bili.

We sat outside overlooking the ocean and watched the interesting people across the street hanging out. We started with the Mofongo Dumplings made with Cassava and served with Creamy Aioli and they were delicious. We ordered the boneless pork chops, whole snapper, and skirt steak and it was all very good. The food was a bit pricey but worth it.
