Reviewed October 28, 2013

The good reviews led us to this restaurant where we had the best meal in Puerto Rico.
Penne Primavera with shrimp served in a breaded bowl & Grouper in Garlic sauce along with two cocktails -OMG.
Both the food and drinks were amazingly good, perfectly seasoned and cooked.
All compliments to the chef.

“Comfortable ....from the start”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Liked the setting. At a marina, so there is lots of action....and who doesn't want to be on the waterfront? The first person to great and serve us was Eric...his knowledge and hospility? Thought he was our server. Our server Angel was amazing! One would think he was cooking as well as serving! His knowledge and suggestions....perfect
Our food was beyond tasty and beautifully presented. Angel suggested the churrasco. Such flavor! The veggies as my side were fresh and crispy. My cohort in crime had the shrimp...large and tasting like shrimp. (A tremendous feat in my mind at times ). The mofongo sasoned perfectly and a buttery (not so starchy) texture
We heard they have music on the weekends. Unfortunately we had a ferry home to catch. We will be back. And ! We will blab to all our friends on Vieques how much we liked it
My only complaint? Hard to find. Signage from the main drag is faded and facing one way

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

The best way to find this place is to go up 987 to Passion por el fogon. Take the first right after Passion por el fogon. It looks like it is a path, but it is actually a road that goes down to the marina. If you are using a GPS put the marina in, not the address listed in Trip Advisor.
Great spot by the docks. Lots of boats docked which makes a nice view. We went on Friday and were a little early for the entertainment which comes on at 9 PM. Loved the way the place is decorated and the food is good. My wife had the grouper with garlic. She felt the garlic was a little over board but was tasty. I had breaded shrimp with rice and beans. Liked it very much.
The waiters were extremely friendly and attentive. We were probably the only non locals there. Everyone was friendly saying hello to us. Would highly recommend going to this casual restaurant.

“The food and atmosphere are wonderful!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

What a delicious way to end the day! Set up right along the water, the food was delicious with generously sized portions and a decent variety of offerings. They had a live band the night I was there and was populated by local boat owners enjoying an evening out. Along with the fantastic view, you feel welcomed into a private community of people all telling tales of island life, which only adds to the atmosphere. Such a fun night out! A definite stop when visiting the marina!!

“Great food, music, and prices.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

If you can find it.. it is definitely worth it!!! The food was yummy. My husband had the fried fish sandwich, which was very good. I have the fried spicy shrimp. There was live music on Friday night. The only thing was the restaurant was a bit warm. Not sure if there was air conditioning, but my husband was sweating a bit at dinner.
