Esperanza does not have a lot of authentic Puerto Rican restaurants. In fact, most of the owners and restaurant workers along the Malecon are American or European. Bili is not Puerto Rican owned, but the chefs are Puerto Rican. We had fried whole snapper, rice and red beans, and tostones, and it was all good. The prices in Esperanza are... More

I do not know what is going on with BiLi but the food was not good like our last time. I'm disappointed with all out food. The fry oil was not changed at all. The first thing the employees do when you come in around 8pm is look at their watches. What a way to start the night at BiLi.

Competitor review I see in older reviews you only review vieques and all restaurants one to 0 stars except for one, also in a review to el Quenepo you mention you are an executive chef , and the only reviews you have are of Puerto Rico or Vieques, it's a competitor or a fake account with three reviews on the...

The seafood paella was crap. Poorly cooked and seasoned. Seems like they used frozen seafood and tried to pass it off as something worth eating. For the most expensive dish on the menu you would hope and think it would be worth it, it wasn't. The place itself is nice, relaxed with ok service. Probably won't eat here again I'd... More

Food was a little below average... The service was OK, but a bit slow. Nice vibrant area. Location in a great bar town. 15 minutes from the W hotel.

So, we traveled to Vieques with our blue Weimaraner (Indy). It was very important for us to go somewhere were they allowed dogs. This restaurant was accommodating to pup (55 lbs) and our stroller. Oh By the way the food was great as well. Daniela our waiter was all smiles! Highly recommend the churrasco with amarillo chutney. Beware the drinks... More

We were quickly greeted and seated. We opted to sit inside since it was very crowed outside due to the celebration of the night of San Juan. I opted for the Gnocchi made of yuca, with shrimps with a white cream sauce. According to the waitress, this was her favourite dish. Good flavour, portion and shrimp size. Only thing is... More

In order to get here, you need a 10 minutes cab ride from the ferry. The restaurant is located just across the street from the beach with a nice of view of the water. There's a few more restaurants around and pretty much nothing else. And be warned: the beach is pretty horrible (lots of plankton and not the white... More

We really enjoyed this place. The food was very good except my wife's dish was served cool in the center. They were very apologetic, and took it back, but even after it came back it was still underdone. My son and I both had the seafood dish and found it to be delicious. The dinner for 4 was $175 with...
