“Enjoyed my first mofongo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

I can't compare it to anything, but the Mofongo here (we had the steak version) was a good introduction. The scallops were also excellent. Prices are a bit high, but I suppose that happens on islands.

“Does not like kids!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We called twice to see if they would make a grilled cheese for our two boys (or any kid friendly food) so we could enjoy dinner at this establishment. They said we are not child friendly both times. Keep that in mind when trying to find a place to eat. Nice setting

Awesome news, thank you for that feedback! What could we have done differently to have earned that 5th star?

“Best food on Vieques”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

My husband was skeptical about this place, but I dragged him along after reading the great reviews! Ever since he finished his mofongo, the only words I am hearing are 'this is one of the best meals I have ever had'. I had the shrimp curry which was absolutely delicious and we had calamari and chorizo for tapas. Even the cheesecake dessert didn't disappoint! You HAVE to come to El Patio while visiting Vieques!

“Restricted menu - service pretty good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We went on the day we arrived because two different locals told us this would be a good lunch option. There were 6 of us and we arrived on a Friday of the Memorial Day weekend for lunch around 11:30 am or so. There was a large section of pannini's which all looked great. When it came time to order I chose one and was told they were not serving any of the 12 of them. I then chose a mixed green salad and add a chicken breast and was told they were out of chicken. I asked for shrimp and was told they only had frozen shrimp so I just ordered the mixed green side salad.
The waitress recommended fish nuggets made on site and two of our group got these and said they were good. Two others in our group ordered the special of the day a beef stew special that they both raved about it. My husband ordered the chicken cordon blu and the special rice - both of these things were great.
I freely admit I'm a choosey eater, but I felt like the menu was pretty small considering no sandwich options were available and no protein available for the salad.
It was okay but if we went back to the island I would not go back here....
