“Casual Food and Drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is a great place that is completely in the spirit of Vieques. Definitely a great place to go for a Happy Hour. We ate and drank here multiple times during our visit and the everything was very consistent. The décor is very fitting and as another reviewer has mentioned, the Passion Fruit Pina Coladas are very good--it was tough to order a different drink.

“Tasty food is found here! Don't miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Wondered into Esperanza from Isabella today and while I was negotiating kayak prices (I found one for entire day for $30), my friend found this place to eat at.

5pm-7pm happy hour - $4 margaritas.

However overall prices are pretty low as well all under $15. I had a fish sampler sliders and my friend got a blackend sandwich. Both we liked a lot.

Easy to watch the sunset from their outdoor patio and good people work here.

“Try the Passion Fruit Pina Colada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

My husband and I went at an usual hour (3pm maybe) but the service was great nonetheless. I really enjoyed the mofongo spring rolls and my husband was happy with the hummus. The menu wasn't super extensive and a few items are a little pricey considering the atmosphere but I was all in all very happy. The Passion Fruit Pina Colada was my absolute favorite drink from the entire week. I'd say this is an EXCELLENT place for a few drinks and an appetizer.

If you're looking for a beach bar, this is your place. If you want good food and excellent service, walk to one of the other restaurants on the street
