Excellent meal, we had the tuna tartare, goat, and pork. Great location (water view), good service (but had to get the attention of the server a few times), but the only (small) critiques are that the pork chop was medium rare (I prefer medium) and had them cook it for a few additional minutes. The owner was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable.

After passing by this place (which had already been enthusiastically reviewed by people on tripadvisor, we decided to take a chance. Overall, the food in Vieques was not great, and we thought we had nothing to lose. Turns out that we had everything to gain. The cook made every effort to put together a delicious lunch for us which, as vegetarians, isn't always easy on the island. The beans were delicious with a home cooked flavor, the arepas were totally out of this world (easily the best I'd ever had), and the plantains (maduros) were just as good. And the whole meal cost next to nothing. Definitely don't miss this place.

We tried different restaurants and food trucks in Vieques and I believe this is the best one. Try the mofongos and the mamposteao rice. Although the biulding could get some needed upgrades the food is very good

We went to La Gran Parada 2 out of 4 of the nights we were staying on Vieques. It's by far the best value and best food on the island. The mamposteao was amazing!

This is our first time writing a review on Trip Advisor... La Gran Parada was so satisfying that we had to write a review! The best food we've had in Vieques so far. My husband had the seafood rice and I had a stuffed arepa - both were delicious. There are a lot of interesting, creative restaurants in Vieques, but we found a lot of the food to be too complicated or with too many flavors on one plate. We were craving some authentic, simple, well-made Puerto Rican food and finally found it! We had a car, but if you're staying at the W, it's close enough to walk, exactly one kilometer from the W front gate. Some of the reviews mention that the ambiance isn't that great, but in my opinion, it's just the kind of place that doesn't have try too hard. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was no frills, but pleasant and inviting and the service was nice and mellow. We sat at the bar and had a great time. We'll definitely go back to try the mofongo!
