We were the only couple dining in the restaurant - probably because it was a weeknight during the low season. While the server was nice, he wasn't familiar with the food or wine selections and wasn't of the caliber we expected at a restaurant with this setting and at those prices. We were presented with an extensive wine list, but... More

My gf and I went to Vieques on our week long Puerto Rico island hoping adventure. We had the Guava French toast which was amazing and we loved it so much we came back the next morning for some more. Unfortunately, it took 45+ minutes to receive our order and we were the only ones there. Our orders came out... More

I was staying at another hotel and decided to visit Carambola for breakfast. We ended up getting the guava French toast, once we tried them we ended up returning 3 mornings in a row for breakfast. Additionally their coffee was the best we had during our week stay in Vieques

Some reviews loved the food but hated the service. Maybe it's slow in the restaurant but in the bar area (same menu), Tamara and Alex work very hard and deliver the goods. I may be harder to please than some but found the food definitely worth a visit but not spectacular. Tha calamari were prepared expertly but the batter was... More

We've been visiting Vieques annually since 2009. We have all of our favorite spots that we like to hit. But Carambola located at the Inn on Blue Horizon continues to be our favorite place to eat on the island. It's the one place we go back to multiple times per trip. The setting is absolutely beautiful. The breakfasts are fantastic.... More

Although I am generally leery of special prix fixe meals, my husband booked dinner at Carambola on Valentines Day. They had a special for $45 a person. This meal was as good, if not better, than any meal I have had on Vieques. Both the steak and lobster were perfectly cooked and the root vegetable mash just delicious. The only... More

We thought the dinner would be amazing based on the setting, but drinks were below average, food mediocre ( even the mofungo was poor, dry, and tasteless). The lighting way too bright for evening with no candles on the table The waitress was very sweet and we felt sorry for her because it wasn't her fault, but nothing good to... More

We were very happy with our experience at Carambola. We opted to eat in the bar and found the service to be good, maybe a little inexperienced but willing and friendly. The food was fantastic. We had the tuna tartar which was served in delightfully crispy plantain cups. The Caprese salad was very good with a generous amount of mozzarella... More

The food at Carambola is good but the view is the real draw. It is breathtaking. The atmosphere is very soothing from the cooling breeze on the terrace to the plantation style furnishings. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The driveway to the resort, however, really needs work.
