The best postillitos on the island. Just stop in and buy a few to take away or stay for lunch and have home cooking. Always kind and always friendly.

The only food we've tried here are the pastelillos. I didn't care that much for the crab really liked the chicken and fish ones. A good place to grab lunch or a snack on the way to or from the beaches.

I've been coming to Vieques for over twenty years and El Resuelve is a must visit every trip. I highly recommend the rice and beans, arepas, and pastelillos.

The empanadas alone are a reason to go to El Resuelve. The other food is a fine example of simple, delicious Puerto Rican food. Sit outside and soak up the authentic viequense atmosphere.

This is a typical viequense bar where you order food and sit outside or at the bar itself. Always stop there on the way to the beach for 'pastelillos' to take with me for lunch. All sorts of fillings, chicken, meat, crab, pizza, whatever is your craving. Two pastelillos at the beach and a cold beer is more than enough.... More

This place offers mainly Puerto Rican style food. The food is just average, but the rice with masita was the best among what they offered. The environment is not elegant but ok for a cheap eat. The attention is also ok.

These are the best seafood empanadillas at Vieques. Place not too nice and closes early (6:00 pm) but a must when at Vieques

Empanada was very tasty. It is a bar but doesn't really feel like it. We took a nice break here. Friendly staff as well.

Off the beaten path on the road to Esperanza this locals joint draws a steady stream of cars stopping for very local and frequently changing dishes of Puerto Rican food. Empanadas are king here and they have many versions quickly restocking them and popping them into containers under heat lamps. We saw a previous reviewer trash that concept. It's not... More
