Perfect for the one splurge date-night! The entire menu sounded delicious and had notes of traditional Puerto Rican cuisine, some twists to other caribbean dishes, and some random selections as well. I had a halibut special and my date had the goat masala. We were tempted to lick our plates clean! Coming from DC, we mentioned to the waitress, and I hope this got back to the chef, that the food was comparable to some of the fine dining restaurants we had been to in the city, which marked this restaurant with an impressive singularity along the Esperanza malecon. Best meal we had on the trip.

We had our rehearsal dinner for our forty wedding guests at El Quenepo for our April 2016 wedding in Vieques and we couldn't be happier with how the event turned out! Kate was absolutely wonderful to work with during the planning process and everything turned out wonderful on the day of the dinner. The food was delicious and service was impeccable for the event. We had more than a few guests comment that dinner was amazing and that it was one of the best dinners they had ever had. Couldn't recommend El Quenepo more for a special event like a rehearsal dinner or any dinner in general if you are in Vieques!

My husband and I were able to eat here without a reservation and enjoyed our meal, but it wasn't as good as we had been led to believe, and is pretty pricy. We started with the Tuna Poke and it was somewhat fishy. We also tried the Spiny Lobster and Mofungo. Both were good and the portions were large. The menu is ambitious and some of the items seemed to contain too many ingredients.
