Although I am generally leery of special prix fixe meals, my husband booked dinner at Carambola on Valentines Day. They had a special for $45 a person. This meal was as good, if not better, than any meal I have had on Vieques. Both the steak and lobster were perfectly cooked and the root vegetable mash just delicious. The only... More

We thought the dinner would be amazing based on the setting, but drinks were below average, food mediocre ( even the mofungo was poor, dry, and tasteless). The lighting way too bright for evening with no candles on the table The waitress was very sweet and we felt sorry for her because it wasn't her fault, but nothing good to... More

We were very happy with our experience at Carambola. We opted to eat in the bar and found the service to be good, maybe a little inexperienced but willing and friendly. The food was fantastic. We had the tuna tartar which was served in delightfully crispy plantain cups. The Caprese salad was very good with a generous amount of mozzarella... More

The food at Carambola is good but the view is the real draw. It is breathtaking. The atmosphere is very soothing from the cooling breeze on the terrace to the plantation style furnishings. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The driveway to the resort, however, really needs work.

Hi from Carambola Restaurant! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We're very happy that you enjoyed your time with us at Carambola. Certainly, the ocean view from our restaurant is breathtaking. In the other hand, we're going to be addressing your concern about the driveway to the management. Once again, thanks for visiting us.

We came for tapas and drinks at the bar at Blue Horizon on Jan 7th. We asked the female working at the bar if we could sit at the bar and order drinks and tapas. We ordered two of the signature cocktails, which arrived in 5-10 minutes. There was one other table seated in the bar at that point, and... More

The waitres was very attentive and helpful explaining the Manu and helping me out because I'm vegetarian. The vegetable mofongo was delicious and the coffee too! My friend and several other dishes he really enjoyed too. The view was very very nice and the place very Romantic and private.

The potential was undeniable. Beautiful location, great looking facility with a cool round bar. Unfortunately, the potential for a great experience was unmet. The service was incredibly slow and unexperienced. To be fair, it was off-season. Negating that point was the fact there were exactly three tables active the entire time we were there. Our water glasses remained dry and... More

Went for dinner and everything was just ok. Service was fine, although we never saw a drink menu (maybe they don't serve alcohol). Both the appetizers and the entrees were pretty bland and seemed uninspired. Nothing was bad, but for the price, I was expecting a bit more. Also, the Mosquitos were killer, not sure if it was just bad... More
