Their version of lobster Mofongo was lower in fat than the usual island version (which I also like). Very nice setting and excellent, attentive service. Setting and prices consistent with upscale restaurant in a metro area, but with the ocean a few steps away and...More

Vieques has so much to offer. For a wonderful, white table cloth dinner with impecable service and great food I reccomend El Quenepo. We went the first week of the season for the first time. We left full, happy and with new friends.

El Quenepo served up well presented, good food that was neither better nor worse than the norm for Vieques. It's pricey (though to be expected), and fancy yet fairly chill, but it's nothing extraordinary. The fish was good, though that's the status quo for Vieques...More
