The mahi mahi with root vegetable mash was outstanding! My kids ordered the fried mahi mahi nuggets. The pieces were a good size and a perfect option for the kids to eat. Everything was prepared perfectly and very flavorful. The others in my party ordered the pork chops and couldn't believe the size of them when served! They all raved... More

It was a great experience and the food was incredibly delicious. I ordered the cassava gnocchi with snapper, shrimp and conch. The gnocchi simply melts in your mouth and the conch was tender. I can't wait to go back!

Bili is trying hard to do some culinary things. We went and toured the small plates. Everything we had was good, nothing was great. Salty hand in the kitchen to be sure. The service was great and the people pleasant. If you are in Esperanza, then this is a must.

Everything above average! Steak and fish wonderful...lobster, over cooked. Service excellent, ambiance was swell. Only complaints....GET RID of the table cloths! It was like having a cheap wedding dress on the table. Went there twice this trip for dinner. The root vegetable mash is other worldly!

We had a beach lunch at Bili. The onion rings were the best I've ever had (I recommend eating them with their wonderful hot sauce). The grilled eggplant was one of the best veggies sandwiches I've had. It was terrific to have such a great meal so near the beach.

Right on Esperanza, this small place has great flavor. Seriously the best seafood we had in Puerto Rico. Great service and a fun atmosphere.

The food was extremely good. I'm a vegetarian and they have a variety of vegan dishes. The Bilí Salad was really refreshing and well prepared. A must if in Vieques!

Wonderful open-air setting across the street from the main tourist beach in Esperanza. Not cheap, but definitely worth the price. The skirt steak was marinated and very tender, served over traditional rice and beans – we came back the next day to have that dish specifically. The conch sandwich was made with slices of cold, fresh conch, rather than deep... More
