Delicious!

We went to Shawnaa's after having gotten to Vieques and were delighted with the food. The place was filled with locals which is always a good sign! We had chicken and fries and fried plantains which I waited a half hour for but was worth EVERY minute of the wait!

Shawnaa's has the best local food in town with reasonable prices. Food is cooked everyday and the menu changes by day. It is cafeteria style, so you see what your are ordering. Friendly staff. You can call in and place an order for take out.

Had the chicken and rice with fried plantain for lunch. It is cafeteria style but the food tasted fresh and the price was reasonable. Staff was friendly and spoke enough English to understand exactly what we wanted and answered any questions. Good place for lunch or quick dinner, they do deliver, and average Spanish food .

Shawnaa's is a great place to stop for a quick bite while you're Isabella. You will not leave hungry! The portion are generous! They serve typical Puerto Rican foods. There were four of us there the day we ate at Shawnaa's and we all got different meals. We all left happy (and very full)!

We went on a random Monday afternoon in December and they were cleaning up with all the food packed away.

My best friend is Puerto Rican, and this was just like his mom's cooking. Fantastic food, very casual atmosphere and the cheapest most filling lunch on the island. Highly recommend.

Get there as close to 11am as possible. Once they run out of a dish, it's over!!! However all the food stays hot and fresh.

For what it is, a mid day weekday cafeteria, it can't be beat for money and reasonably tasty food. They pull it out of the kitchen so fast the food does not have time to get old. Very popupar with locals. The best of the budget places to eat in Isabel II.
