Total Surprise! Great Experience.

We had no idea this little bar/cafe was at the airport until our "taxi" driver dropped us off here. We had plenty of time before our flight for a couple more Medallas so we bellied up to the bar. We were a little apprehensive since Lyman is a huge Packers fan but we are open to meeting new people... read more

Vieques happens to be a small island that has its tried and true restaurants and then it also has many disappoints. You will not be disappointed at the restaurant at their airport. On our return this year once again the Isla Nena Café continued to delight us. My husband ordered the Mofongo Balls which were new to the menu. He... More

If I had known this restaurant existed, I would have eaten there on all four days. The lady was lovely. The food was EXCELLENT! Biggest cheese beef burger I've ever had and cooked perfectly. Also had these Jumbo Shrimps rubbed with Old Bay sauce ($0.95 each) - couldn't get enough of it! Chicken wings were also delicious. Prices were reasonable,... More

Whether you are flying out or flying in this is a great spot to stop. It is right at the airport and outside. They have a regular American menu and on special days they have real Chinese food made by the owner's wife. My grandson from the states was raving about the Chinese dumplings. Everything I have had there is... More

A hidden gem located in the Vieques airport parking lot. Delicious omelettes (great size - 3+ eggs loaded with cheese and bacon) sandwiches, fresh coffee. Not only breakfast food but they can also make many other lunch/dinner entree at anytime of the day. You'd never expect to find such a taste if you judt drove by.

This was a great quick lunch before our flight back to San Juan. The bartender/owner seemed really nice; I wish we had sat at the bar to chat with him more. His wife makes homemade dumplings which were quite nice (we had the steamed veggie ones). We also had the fish sandwich, which was good. I think we missed out... More

This place is the best surprise in Vieques. It's a small bar on the airport parking that you would never thing had brilliant food. But it most certainly does. The owner and his wife are extremely nice and the food is phenomenal.
