Their open ocean-view setting attracted us for the lunch. And their unique wooden menu sold us. But by the end, their fresh and yummy food and nice service won our hearts. First time for me to try a whole snapper fish with great presentation!

We had a very tasty pulled pork sandwich which may be the best we ever had. Very flavorful and plentiful. The staff were very nice and attentive. Plenty of great choices on the menu. If you are in Esperanza you have to eat here!!!

This was our third trip to Vieques and we had heard good things about Bili but had never tried it. I am sorry to say that we were quite disappointed. Our server neglected to mention the specials for the evening and also inaccurately described the whole snapper as two individual fish. We shared the snapper, which was, in fact, one... More

I'll start by saying the food was delicious. I ordered the seafood paella and it was advertised in the menu with lobster, calamari, and shrimp. When it came out, there was a whole fried snapper in place of the lobster. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to fish but not shellfish or squid. It took a trip to the emergency room to figure... More

I've been several times to el Bili and it doesn't disappoint. Good ambiance with the outside sitting! The food was very good! We had the seafood paella which was excellent. However the service could improve, since the beggining it has been their weakness. The waiters were disorganized, talking among themselves. We ask for an order of tostones which they forgot,...

We came in late. Around 9:30 pm. The menu offered sea food. They were short on sea food, and they did not mentioned it. I ordered a $36.00 dollar paella that was nothing more but a rice dish with a fried snapper not more than a 1/5 of a pound. There was no mention of a fried red snapper with... More

Sorry to hear you were not happy with the meal you had in our restaurant , I don't now if you are aware that all of our seafood is brought daily by local fisherman so we buy enough just for the day to guarantee to our costumers the highest quality of seafood on the Island, usually we are booked way...

The food was great and so was the service. If you want to try puertorican cuisine while on Vieques this is a place you must visit!

Not sure this one withstands compared to US restaurants but it was a good option on Vieques - especially given limited options to dine on the island. Loved the empanadas and fresh catch. Great seafood options and plenty of fried things too.
