Don't let the unassuming outside fool you, this restaurant is the best. Lots of ambiance, great food, terrific menu and excellent service. I highly recommend it if you are on Vieques Island.

Love the egg plant and pizzas. Service is excellent. Wish the room was a little more sound proof. Difficult to carry a conversation if many people there.

I've only ever ordered the pizza here so I can't speak to their other entrees but I do love their pizza. A large was plenty for three hungry people. There is nothing fancy about this place but the service is friendly and efficient. And by the way, they can get busy and do take reservations so play it safe and... More

Had to sit for a long time just to get attention to order drinks while the servers where chatting with the locals at the bar. After a long wait we ordered food and drinks.

Italian food (much more rare in Vieques than back in the states). The hours leave something to be desired but no reservation was necessary. Both our dinners were very good and I would definitely recommend this place! I wish they had outdoor seating, however, or even a bit more indoor ambiance.

I had a Greek Salad here that was large, fresh and delicious. My husband had the zucchini noodles, which provides a nice alternative for gluten-free folks or those who just want a lower calorie meal. We went back the next night and got the the vegetable pizza to-go, which was really good. Nice service, and easy to get a table.
