Best Latin food near Isla de Vieques, Caribbean

August 8, 2020 Roger Rusk

Find out what Latin restaurants to try in Isla de Vieques. The glowing Mosquito Bay is a vision of bizarre beauty. Thanks to a bioluminescent microorganism, the water is a cool electric blue, looking somewhat like a fantastical sci-fi lagoon. Kayak or hop into a clear-bottomed pontoon boat to glide along the neon waters. Swimmers and snorkelers will adore the pristine, undeveloped beaches. Keep an eye out for the playful feral horses that gallop along the dunes, or visit the stately ceiba tree that’s been keeping watch over the highland for three centuries.

Reviewed By happytraveler968

We enjoyed the food at the Cositas very much and it is very affordable. Each item we ordered was $3.50/person. We got delicious chicken skewers with tostones -- the sauce on the chicken was incredible. We also got a dish similar to an Empanada, but I don't know what it was called. I would highly recommend eating here -- you will not be disappointed!!

Reviewed By ajgupta

We went to this restaurant for lunch, while we were visiting Vieques. We wanted to have simple ( not fried) Puerto Rican food. The place has a nice outdoor enviornment. The food selection is both fried and non-fried food. We ordered the beef stew, Yuka and grilled fish. They were all nice.They have a daily menu and an al la carte menu. The al la carte menu is also written in english. I reduced a star since they do not write the daily menu in english....they are reluctant to even explain it. I think that is what they target for the locals and the al la carte menu for tourists. Overall the pricing is reasonable.

Reviewed By Robin N

We arrived in Vieques hungry...and hot! The thought of sitting in a stuffy restaurant was not appealing. Rincon Del Sabor was not too far by jeep...and sits on a hill, with a nice little breeze. This is more picnic tables and food trucks...but in the best way. Lots of meal, sandwich, or smoothie options. Chicken wings were great, wrap was full and flavorful...but their yellow rice is amazing!

El Guayacan

Welcome to El Guayacán a Boricua Restaurant here in El Malecón de Esperanza in Vieques, Puerto Rico. We create a special fusion in the food with local fresh products. Enjoy Vieques enjoy El Guayacàn.

Reviewed By ameliapelaez

husband and I visited Vieques this weekend and were turned off by the amount of "American" food restaurants on Flamboyán street and more importantly, the poor quality of said food. We were incredibly happy to find El Guayacán. Right now they seem to be rebuilding certain parts of the restaurant due to hurricane damage, so the spot looks very low key, however, the food and the service more than make up for it. Eating at El Guayacán felt like having dinner at someone's home. The owner greeted my husband and I and was very friendly and helpful. We had their fish of the day which was a huge snapper, served fried with a garlic sauce on top, sweet plantains and coconut arepas. It was the best meal we had all weekend. I strongly recommend eating here when in Vieques.Really thanks and welcome back

Reviewed By dorsalmo

This restaurant is probably the most upscale place to eat on Vieques. The only justification (perhaps) for the very high prices is the open air atmosphere across the street from the ocean. The food was acceptable, but certainly not worth the prices. (Something to keep in mind, if you're used to Maine lobster, is that the lobster served here is spiny lobster - the kind without large claws - and is much fishier-tasting.) Probably the biggest surprise, though, was how poor the service was. Our waitress was somewhat less than friendly and seemed to be put out by every request we made. Also, the time to prepare the food was excessive. Given the fact that the place wasn't even half full, we waited an unbelievably long time to get our food. We were looking for a special place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, and our hotel manager recommended El Blok, but I would suggest almost any of the other restaurants on The Malecon over this one.

Tried Biekes for lunch and I tried the mofongo based on others reviews but found the mofongo to be just so-so. It was good but not great or the best. The pork steak however was TO DIE FOR perfectly seasoned and tender and juicy.

We stopped in for dinner at Bili after reading all of the great reviews. We were not disappointed. The drink special for the evening was our favorite drink on the island. Fresh and light which as perfect to go with our food. The fresh fish appetizers were the best of the meal and would recommend any of their fresh catch options. Causal yet elegant food.

El Quenepo

Island fine dining located on the waterfront in Esperanza. Innovative cuisine with lots of flavors. Featured items include fresh local seafood, specialty cocktails, and local greens. Vegan and vegetarian items also available.

Reviewed By TexasFishingGirl

We ended up at El Quenepo because our original place was closed. Wow- we were fortunate. I had read the reviews before hand, so I knew we were in for a treat. Be prepared to spend “more than the usual Vieques price,” but I guarantee the food and service will not disappoint! Their wine and cocktail list were inventive and extensive. Our friend tried what we now call the “Lorena Bobbit” drink- sorry guys- a mixture of tamaraind juice, gin and lime. Food was ample amounts and super fresh! The arugula salad was a nice change to the typical salads. The jerk chicken was nicely spiced not overwhelming hot. The sweet potato salad was interesting. The pork tenderloin was cooked to perfection. The only drawback was the shrimp and conch- it should have been called just shrimp bc only two small pieces of conch were present. Overall, a fantastic meal to end our trip to Vieques!
