A convenient stop on the way to or from the beach, El Resuelve serves typical Puerto Rican food at fair prices (we were getting fed up of the tourist prices for sub-par food at places like Bieques Bistro). We visited twice and maybe there was a different chef each time, because the first time the fish pastelitos were sublime, and the second time, the filling was different and nothing special. My dad had the carne frita one time and the BBQ ribs the other--neither was very good, and in fact the carne frita (fried beef) looked fatty and unappetizing. Stick with the pastelillos, the rice and beans, and the fish. By the way, you order at the counter (choose the ready-made items in the first column if you are short on time) and they call your name when the food is ready.

Went here after a nice swim at Playa Caracas and were very pleased! We first orders a bunch of Pastellitos. They were all great but the fish one was by far the most delicious. We then all ordered rice and beans and though a simple meal, it was incredible.

Had to use my Spanish here no English spoken to us. We realized pretty quickly how to order by going up to the counter but the first person behind the counter seemed overwhelmed and did not make eye contact. She went to the back and then someone else came out to take our order. There was a case with premade empanadas and we decided to try them and they were good! Looks like a local place as 4 police officers were eating there the same time we were.

This place is soooo ignore by the mayority of the people! We visit el resuelve two times and man it was great! On sundays almost every place in the island is closed and who was open? El resuelve! Please try the white rise with beans and lasagna trust me and you are welcome! The price is just right about $20 for two servings and susana is a great customer service oriented local with a great smile! She even gave me a free shot of cañita, a native moonshine from Puerto Rico and it was wonderful!

I gave the lady at the counter a card describing in Spanish that I am allergic to dairy. She went into the kitchen and came out with someone who spoke beautiful English and explained my options, all of which were off-menu. The fish I had tasted great and the beans and rice were above average.
