“Best Isabelle II bar scene, best conch fritters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Mar Azul was good enough to get us in our jeep to drive back to Isabelle II for happy hour and food on at least half of our nights in Vieques (we stayed on the other side in Esperanza).

Awesome sunsets, great low key atmosphere with wonderful service. We felt at home. We felt local.

Try the conch fitters. Repeat. Eat them with #15 hot sauce.

Specialty food nights were good... try the deep fired pork shoulder on Mexican night. Wow.

Sunsets, drinks and food, as a combo, were unbeatable here.

“Great Food, Great Drinks and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The folks here are super laid back and really nice. They made us some great rum drinks and have excellent food. Great place to watch the sunset. Close the ferry dock too which is nice.

“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Fun place with live music, karaoke, and cold drinks. We didn't have anything to eat but they do serve food. It is probably the best place on the island to watch the sunset!

“Great food, service & views - what more do you want in a bar?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Go! Go! Go! Definitely go to Al's. The locals are there and well as the tourists - that right there should tell you something.

Especially go on Greek night or Italian night - YUM! And the Bloody Mary's are killer - and I hate Bloody Mary's!
