Vie's appears to be permanently closed. We were there today, but were forbidden to park in Vie's lot. A sign said that after 36 years in business (or something like that), they were closing.

Vie's is near the end of the road (Rte. 10) and takes a bit of effort to get there. It is a standard stop for us that has a sentimental connection; we first visited Vie's in 1984 as close as I can remember. It is...More

This vary small roadside snack shack is fantastic. We took a car ride out to the East End near Hansen Bay not knowing about Vie's. We were lucky to find the best beans & rice in the USVI. Fantastic and well worth the drive.

Drove out because of the reviews. Unfortunately it was closed. Sign says closed Sunday and Monday Even though we did not eat here, the drive was well worth it. The steps hills and sharp drop offs are not for the faint of heart.

We'd read several reviews of people who said this was a "must eat." The staff was so friendly, and the food was great. Even my young daughters loved it. Plus, we got to see the wild island donkeys up close and personal. Doesn't get much...More

Lovely Vie operates her own beach, picnic ground, and snack shack on Hansen Bay. For just $2.50, you can park your car, use her beach, lounge in her chairs, and rinse off with her hose. The snorkeling here is incredibly good! There's a shallow reef...More
