We had a good evening at this restaurant and really enjoyed the view. The menu has a great selection of food that would please a lot of different palates.

Drinks were good and the appetizers were excellent (see pictures). We had Caribben Lobster and some fish and both were very good. The sides were a bit pedestrian, but were good complements to the food.

Overall, the restaurant is trying to play to a diverse crowd and is probably geared more toward older clientele. They offer a consistent experience and we would definitely return.

I had the Caribbean Lobster and my husband had the Dorado. Both were excellent and a great value. We were also pleased with the house wine offered during happy hour. My favorite was the Cesar salad, AMAZING! The servers were attentive and engaging. Lovely setting, lovely meal, lovely conversation. Great experience!

Trade Winds was recommended to us by several people as one of the best places for fish on the island. We were disappointed. We had the whole fried yellowtail special and the Caribbean lobster special. The vegetable that came with the lobster special was yellowed broccoli. Of much more concern, however, was that I'm pretty sure the mashed potatoes were instant - the kind I'd eat when camping, not at an expensive night out. If no potatoes were available, why not mash some plantains instead? To add to our woes, we later saw the same fried whole yellowtail with rice and beans special at other restaurants on the Malecon for about $8 less than at Trade Winds. The view and the key lime pie were great but overall our meal was a bummer.

We had a really nice dinner here our first night in Vieques. The seafood risotto was delicious. The restaurant is staffed by great people who also work for the local humane society. It was great seeing people that care about the local animals. The food was great
