We heard about Bodegas Andreu Sole from someone in La Parguera and decided to head over there for lunch. The restaurant is only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. You will find it on Route 3116 (which is a spur off of Route 116) just after you pass the signs for the parador. There was a small traffic jam at the main gate. When we made it to the front of the line, we were asked if we had reservations. We told them we didn't but they told us to enter.
We were seated immediately and given a menu. The menu is all in Spanish but our waiter was bilingual. He explained to us that the restaurant is part of a winery which grows grapes locally near El Bosque Seco (the dry forest). They make a wine, four kinds of sangria, and a variety of liqueurs . We each opted for a sampler which consists of a small sample of everything. The sampler costs $10 and is well worth it. They also offer a choice of five or so tapas and five main courses. We did not order any tapas. I ordered the chicken breast suffed with ham and cheese and my friend ordered the ribs.
Our food came before we had finished the beverage sampler at what seemed to be just the right amount of time. The chicken was fantastic. It was very well-flavored and it was nice to be able to enjoy the beverage sampler with the main course itself. My friend also enjoyed his ribs. The staff came by a few times during the meal to make sure we were okay.
In addition to the fine food, I feel I need to comment on the location. In one word: stunning. It is located on the edge of a bay in Guanica. There is a dock on the water and you can take a tour of the area which includes the winery. We did not choose to go on the tour and I was under the impression that attendance is limited (but I did not confirm this).
If you want to go somewhere different, this place is it. It represents what I consider to be a new stage of gastronomy. I highly recommend a visit.
