Green Bay Packer flags, Packer hats, and an owner from Green Bay itself make this a true island packer bar! We had 5 diff groups from WI there that random day.

This is our first stop when we land in Vieques, our last stop before leaving the island.....and of course a few nice lunches during our stay. The food is delicious and Lyman is always a delight!

Great food at the airport. The building is nothing to lay your eyes on but the food is very good and reasonable. It may have been our best food on the island. Would defiantly do it again.

Isla Nena Cafe serves up some amazing food. In first look it may not look that great or even much of a cafe but the food will make you realize what an undiscovered gem this place is. The pork dumplings steamed or fried were mouth watering. Must try this place out especially if you are on Vieques.
