Somehow trying to avoid watching the inauguration I ended up here - eating delicious fried pork dumplings watching the stupid inauguration. Delicious dumplings - place is pretty overpriced but after snorkeling at Mosquito Pier their cold beer and really good dumplings hit the spot. Also stopped for breakfast - while guy is super nice and there is no other option... More

I had the best time here- watched 2 of the Packer's play off games with Lyman (the owner) who is a super fan, originally from Green Bay Wisconsin. I should mention that there were people supporting the other teams there as well. Lots of joking, fun, and good sportsmanship. Even the bird was cool (forgot his name) I had some... More

The unique and tasty home made bread is pressed which is a Puerto Rican tradition !!! The staff was very friendly and quick to take your order!! This cafe also has the coldest... More

We went to this place just because it was next to the airport. Please don't repeat our mistake. This place is everything you shouldn't expect in Vieques. First, the food is tasteless at best. We tried the wraps, the chicken salad, and the empanadas and felt conned after comparing it with food from everywhere else. Second, the attention is awful.... More

We landed here at around 3 PM. this restaurant/café/bar is right outside the airport on the 2nd level - we picked up a rental car from a nearby rental place and we wanted to get a drink to get our vacation started. The owner was very hospitable and friendly. Fantastic and warm genuine service. We asked for a rum based... More

Stopped in about 8:30 was welcomed by Limon (sp) who has been there for 20 years. Ordered breakfast and cocktail, why not last day of vacation. Bacon, eggs and cheese on a roll was delish and filling! Food great, drinks cold and easy to load onto your hopper! Thanks again!

Amazing fried and steamed dumplings. Who'd of thought you could get food like this at an airport. Very casual and very inexpensive.

If they did a TV special on "Great Airport Restaurants" this would be number one!! One of my, and a lot of other locals, favorite places for lunch. Great food and great value. Always love going for dumpling days, but was lucky enough to be there on a day when the special was mofongitos. Joey makes the best mofongo -... More
