Closed for Vacation

After reading all the wonderful reviews, we were excited to try this out. It was a long journey to the other end of the island and we were disappointed to find it closed until September. I understand we all need vacations but it was still a bummer.

Great food, quick service. Best original tasting food on our 8 day trip. Went back 3 times for lunch or brunch. Easy place to stop in, eat fast outside and be on your way. Great location in old town.

Yummmm! The best sandwiches, especially those with their Bien dressing. The #1 with roast pork is addictive. Onion sandwich likewise! Simple outside seating area but just grab one to take to the beach or to take on the ferry home!

Wow. Maybe the best sandwich ever. Really. And I really love sandwiches. That good. Had the #2. Busy but efficient lunch time service. Really, really good food. Juicy moist pork. The best Cuban sandwich I've ever had. Went with a group of locals who had never been there and they were oohing and ahhing as well.

WOW!!!! Visited Bien with a group of 4 and each one of us was amazed at the quality of food at Bien. We were looking for something casual and easy after a long day.. we were not disappointed. After living in South Florida for almost a decade, I like to think I have eaten my fair share of Caribbean food... More

This place is AMAZING. Could eat from there every day. We visited for lunch and ordered the corn to start which is marinated in cilantro and alioli then roasted. I then ordered the jasmine rice with pork whilst my husband ordered a mixed meat sandwich on Cuban bread. There was so much food that we didn't eat anything else that... More
