We stumbled on the Blue Horizon Inn looking for an early breakfast (most on the Malecon start at 9) and this place was open. What an incredible view! My husband had the steak and eggs which is served churrasco style with tasty spicy home fries. I had the guava French toast...yummy! The staff was very nice and we had a... More

This place is tucked secretly within the walls of the Blue Horizon Boutique Hotel like the precious treasure it is. If you are not fortunate enough to be staying on property and able to enjoy this gem morning, noon, and night, then I suggest you add a meal (or two) here to your to-do list. First of all, the setting... More

Omg this is the best Puerto Rican food I have ever had! Hands down. The flavors were amazing and service was out of this world. I really recommend this restaurant to anyone. You will not regret it. If possible stay a couple days and try several dishes. Everything is great!

After reading an ad on our Cape Air flight that boasted that Carambola had the best mofongo on the island, we decided to make a special trip to try it. My husband loves mofongo, so we saved Carambola for our last "special" meal in Vieques. Oh my mistake, Carambola was awful!!! The only high point of our meal was our... More

The place is beautiful. The service is great. I came with four others for an evening dinner. The food was average at best. However, the scallops were very good and the whole fish dinner. The quality of the food did not justify the price.

We ate at the bar an grill on this property. It seemed like it took forever to order and receive our meal. When the meals came, they were overpriced and not that tasty. The chicken mofunga was tough. After 3 bites, my daughter was done. I had better luck with the vege mofunga. The other two meals were average at... More
