The Tin Box opened on Friday, March 8th, 2013. We went twice during our trip to visit the raw bar. Max, the on-site "mother shucker," provided great service as well as great conversation. This is the only raw bar on Vieques! We ate copious clams and oysters, and there was lobster and shrimp available as well. On our first visit, we brought in fresh conch meat from a conch we found on the beach (which a local helped us remove from the shell). We had no idea how to prepare it so we asked the chef Matt if he could help us out. He took it in the kitchen and 15 minutes later presented us with a beautifully plated conch ceviche, complete with organic arugula and tomatoes from the restaurant's garden. It was delicious!! We also enjoyed our "Bloodless Mary" cocktails, which contained blended herbs and pickled veggies from the garden. We had a great experience at The Tin Box and would recommend it highly! It's an especially nice change of pace from the bars on the malecon in Esparanza as there is more of a lounge feel here.

Yet another choice establishment founded by the family Duffy. The quality of the ribs and oysters found at this island outpost is nothing short of phenomenal. The microbrews are a nice surprise for us beer lovers. And the tropical open air atmosphere and island vibe tunes puts it over the top fun. Oh, and the moist cornbread has got to be the best ever anywhere. Nice job Mikey & crew!

Imagine my surprise to find a gourmet oyster bar in Vieques! This new restaurant, recently opened by the owner of Duffy's (in Esperanza, downstairs from Flamboyan Guest House where I stayed) was a last minute discovery that I wish I had known about earlier. They offer fresh oysters flown in from both the east coast and the west coast. You sit looking out over their wonderful organic garden, just minutes from the beach in a lovely rain forest like setting, peaceful, calm quiet, enjoying some of the freshest tastiest seafood I have ever eaten. This restaurant is a MUST visit!
