Wow!! Great Puerto Rican Dishes in a Real Setting

El Resuelve is NOT a fancy restaurant - it is a small setting on the side of the road with parking in the back. A tin roof and canopy cover plastic chairs and tables scattered about. A juke box player on the wall blasts out Puerto Rican tunes. In the front by the road is a case that has... read more

No joke about it. This is serious Puerto Rican food and drink. Amazing value, great food, strong drinks. ZERO abnoxious tourists (except me) shrimp and garlic great, wings best my daughter has ever had. There is parking to the side and back much easier than the street.

We stopped here to grab a bite after the beach. We had great food. The portions are large. There are no prices on any of their meals and when we got our bill I think we may have gotten a tourist price. But overall it was very good and I would go back.

On your way to the beach, this is a must stop to pick up a couple of "pastelillos" stuffed with chicken or ground meat. That's good enough for lunch and, of course, cold beer.

Stopped here today for a late lunch; was not concerned that there were no prices on the board because most reviews here on TA seem to say this place is "cheap". Not anymore..... We ordered 2 camarone empanadas; one with fries & one with fried plaintains. What we received was fried /breaded shrimp & I got what tasted like potato... More

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.
