We ate at El Quenepo on our first visit to Vieques in Feb/Mar 2016. It's what one would call fine dining, and as such it can be pricey. But I'll be damned, it was worth every penny. Every bite, of every thing on my plate,...More

I have eaten here twice and both times I have been very impressed by the food. The presentation was gorgeous and the food delicious. It's an elegant restaurant though sometimes the noise from the Malecon can put a damper on the otherwise lovely ambiance.

We wanted to dress up and out to eat. A couple locals in Isabel Sangonda told us about this place. Food was fabulous. A little pricey on food and beverages. But it was tasty. Staff was very friendly.

Tastefully decorated upscale restaurant. The focaccia bread was amazing. The wahoo was good and the carnitas were fantastic. The key line pie was solid.

We arrived for dinner early, because we were going to do tour of bio bay. We all had specials. The wahoo that I had was excellent. Service was very good. I may return again before I leave. That should sum it up!

I have been here multiple times. I have seen people in shorts and flip flops and some in upscale casual wear. It is right on the melacon, nothing is super dressy except special events.
