This is the only place on Vieques where you can get a good feel for the local food. If you've travelled all the way to Vieques, do yourself a favor and try out the local fare at least once. And do it here.

We like to stop at El Resuelve for a moment and pick up some pastelillos for lunch. They have all kinds of meat and seafood fillings, very cheap and very good tasting.

We had chicken and beef pastelillos and plenty of beer. They were freshly made and hot. There were plenty of people enjoying the local and well-made food. This is a place to frequent as it has been there a long time and people can count on the consistent great quality.

Do yourself a favor - stop here on your way to the beach in the morning and get a few chicken empanadas and a few beers. Cheap, delicious, convenient.

It's a little confusing to order here if you don't speak Spanish and you might get a little sass from the bartender but it's worth it. Two of us had a great meal of pork barbecue, rice and beans, and tostones for around twelve dollars (we split one order).

I was in a tourism workshop and we were given an exercise to design an itinerary for various tourist niches. Every single group, all of which were made up of locals, put El Resuelve on their recommended itinerary no matter if it was for a honeymooning couple, a family or a elderly British couple interested in history. So that's saying... More

We stopped here after a hot day at the beach. We grabbed a bag full of empanadas- beef, chicken, and pork, and an order of tostones. We also had them pack 2 sodas up for us and unknowingly she put 2 plastic cups with ice in the bag to go along with the soda which was kind of weird but... More
