Overall best dinner experience in Esperanza!

Awesome food in Esperanza! Great seafood dishes! Good location in Esperanza and nice atmosphere. It's right across the street from the water.

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.

When my husband and I asked for restaurant recommendations in Vieques for our anniversary, we were told Bili was "the best" and "my favorite" by a few people. So on our first night we figured, let's go for it! In the 5 days we were in Vieques, we ate here 3 times. The food is AMAZING. SO SO SO DELICIOUS... More

The restaurant has a nice setting overlooking the ocean, and like most places in Vieques, it is a little on the shabby / rustic side as far as decor goes. We ordered two dishes - the guacamole of the day and the paella. Both were pretty tasteless and disappointing. The seafood in the paella was also very 'fishy' in flavour,... More

Whoa. Seriously good stuff going on here. 6 of us ate, had apps, drinks and entrees, and I can honestly say that all of us were happy with everything, a rare feat for some of us food snobs. Excellent presentation, too. Just a great spot, and the best meal we've had on Vieques!
