“Our favorite spot in Vieques”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is the place to go to for drinks and for taking a break from the heat and the sun. The sitting area in the back is wonderful; it feels like you're in the jungle. The service was excellent and the overall environment forces you to linger.

“Excellent babeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Tin Box was a great stop for barbeque and fresh salad greens grown on the property. The wine list was also reasonably priced. The only small complaint we had was there is no host person and it is a busy place so you can feel lost when you first get there.

“Sunday brunch MUST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Wow. The Bloody Mary bar is something I will long dream of repeating. This is not a place to go in a rush (but then no place on Vieques is), but it is incredible in quality of food drink and setting.

“Great place, food was ok.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Went there on a Wednesday night and had the place to ourselves. They have a great bar and great drink selection. Appetizers were oysters and calamari, oysters were great calamari was Ok.I had the BBQ trio wife had fish tacos. We both ordered salads. The salads were amazing, we watched the employee run down to the garden and pick everything for it right then and there. BBQ was combo of pulled pork chicken and ribs, pork and chicken were great, ribs were fatty with little meat. Sides were amazing( Mac and cheese). The fish tacos were underwhelming, nothing flavorful to speak of till we added hot sauce to them. Did not have dessert. Still ran into a 100 dollar tab. Not disappointed but not blown away.

“Tin Box is a Jewel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

A waitress at another restaurant recommended the Sunday brunch at Tin Box...and it was really a treat! The place is as cute as can be...nothing fancy just perfection. Pulled pork on top of a tostone and salad greens from their own garden. Husband had the hangover special...egg, avocado, fried oysters and this bacon that was indescribably delicious! Oh...and did I mention the watermelon Rita? Yum! Thank you, Chef Ali...one of the best meals we have had on Vieques!
