I do not understand why all the restaurants in the Esperanza area are so grossly overpriced? The worst part is that they try to justify it. This is not Disney! Maybe the $1.50 Medalla bottles at Happy Hour drew a crowd but seeing their mid $20s options for everything just turned me away.

This restaurant looked beautiful and was priced higher, than most on the island, so we saved it for our last evening on the island. It was a disappointment. My friend was very hungry, while I preferred a lighter meal. I ordered mussels after my punch. The waitress said -- you know it's an appetizer, right? Yes, I know it's an... More

My wife and I walked down from the guesthouse for breakfast one morning. The service was wonderful, its a great venue open and airy. The food was awesome and we also had a few drinks. If the drink comes with a warning, heed it!!

Trade Winds has the best breakfast on the island. Our family favorites or the Lobster Benedict, Corn Beef Hash, and the Blueberry Pancakes. Lunch and dinner are great too.

We last ate here about 7 years ago and I must say that nothing has improved in the interim. The food (churrasco steak and dorado) was overcooked and pedestrian. The service was up to the quality of the food...when we asked if they had decaf coffee, the waitress said "probably". We were brought our dessert, to be followed by the... More

My husband and I always go to the Trade Winds for our fancy evening meal at least once while on Vieques. Last time we had two lb. Caribbean lobsters that were delicious! The service is wonderful and we had a nice view of the sunset out past the Malecon.

We stopped here for lunch one day of our trip. The menu isn't terribly exciting and we had a Reuben and the conch salad. We were dissapointed they did not have a kids menu, but we managed to get through it with a basket of fries. The outdoor seating and view of the Malecon are nice and the service is... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Nothing was as I expected but if I had the chance, I would not have changed a thing! The rooms are simple, very narrow and small but clean and comfortable. There was no TV in the room, however you are on a beautiful island and should be out enjoying it! There... More

Had breakfast overlooking the Caribbean every one of our 4 days stay in Vieques. It was great!! Do it. We stayed just down the street at Casa de Tortuga. Another good find .
