Amazing atmosphere for "Reggae night"....live band, love the "in the jungle feel", but the less than enthusiastic wait staff and slightly above average bbq combined with the top shelf bbq prices....$26 for ribs...not overly impressed. Fun dancing tho, and drinks were reasonably priced for the... read more

We wouldn't have found it if someone hadn't told us about it. We didn't have reservations but we got there early and got in. When we left, we saw the long line waiting to come in.

This place was a hidden treasure. Located in the middle of no where! My friend and I hand a wonderful time dancing meringue and sipping on margaritas! There is even a sweet little gift shop in the back. Pricey but cute!

This place is only open on Mondays. Call for a reservation as soon as you can. They serve BBQ with hearty servings and a unique and delicious salad bar. Music starts at 6:30. Plan to stay for some dancing after your meal. The same owners have Duffy's and Noche (2 other great restaurants).

TIP: yes this place is remote, and its outdoors and it will be a bit hot and humid, but are we not in the tropics!! Go on Monday Night, great steel drums band to dance, but make sure you get there early. The food was good, yes everything here in Vieques is a bit more expensive, and the salad bar... More

Go when they are opened (Mondays when we were there). Great food, lots of music. What an island restaurant should be.

first of all, our server was sublime. really. as witty and beautiful as she is skilled. I just can not in good conscience give this place a recomendation other than one to avoid. profanity is in the reserve frankly. i had the combo. the cooks were equally enjoyable as the beautiful Nicki. our greeting was dubious. we had no reservations....

The woman who manages this restaurant is extremely rude. We had called to make reservations being we were told this is a great place for bbq and fun reggae music by Duffy's, which has the same owner.. the woman was a bit harsh on the phone, but we made reservations anyway. When we got there, about 20 minutes early, we... More

The best part of the evening was the band. Although advertised reggae music, it was a good PR steel band. Salad bar was ok, but don't you dare go up more than ONCE. The food was ok, small portions and very over priced. Drinks were the lowest bottom shelf liquor they could find. You would think if your on PR,... More

It used to be just down from LaFinca. If it is, it isn't. It's very closed. And a pity. We had an excellent meal here in 2001. If it has reopened elsewhere, I hope the owner will contact me and I'll take down this non-review review...
