“Our Go To Place While in Vieques”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We visited Vieques for 8 days in Mar Azul ended up being our favorite go-to place on the island. We started our first night here by randomly popping in and being so un-sure of every place we walked by. We were starving after traveling all day and were instantly welcomed and offered up menus even though it was pretty late for island time. We had the pasta special of the day and it ended up being one of our favorite and cost-efficient meals of the week. It came with a salad, pasta, and garlic bread for $10 - trust me, thats a deal! We also tried several different things over the week, the cesar wrap, veggie one, everything was delicious! The drinks were also awesome as well.. we had plenty!

“Best views in Vieques”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stopped in Al’s after a morning of sea glass collecting on the beach below. Initially just planned to get sodas and waters as the kids were thirsty and ended up staying a while for a snack. Ordered the nacho plate for the adults to share and that was a perfect size snack for three of us. My husband was thrilled they had all the Coqui Fire hot causes available for him to try. Ordered a basket of fries for the kids. First basket of fries with ketchup ended up airborne by accident. (We all got a good laugh as it reminded us all at the same time of the flying burrito scene in the movie Pitch Perfect.) New basket of fries quickly came out and all was good.

Place was pretty empty as it was around 11:00 am on a weekday so we had the place to ourselves for a while. Can’t beat their views of the ocean from the deck, The bartender was very friendly and we watched the ferry boats come and go from the bar. No trip to Vieques is complete without at least one drink at Al’s – even if it is soda. It’s a very kid friendly place during the day!

“Fun and friendly”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

This bar became our go to spot on Vieques. The regulars said they felt we belonged and were sad to see us go. So much fun to watch the comings and goings of the locals and the sunsets each night. Great, funky spot.
