We had a fantastic pizza and salads. The sangria is very very good. I'm surprised they are only open Monday - Friday. Very convenience location and very friendly.

I ate here last week with friends of mine. We ordered two antipasto and a greek salad for apps. The antipasto was the highlight of the meal. The greek salad was really good also. For entrees we had a veal picatta, eggplant parmesan, and one ordered a pizza. It was said the veal was bland. My eggplant was decent but strange over pasta. Im used to a layered dish, but nonetheless I was okay with it. The pizza also was said to be good. Overall a decent meal for a decent price. With alcohol our bill was around 115 for three of us.
The staff seems a little unexcited to be at work.

Taverna was a nice place for a bite to eat. We originally had intended to all order pizza but 3 of us decided to try the pasta dishes instead. We should have stuck with the pizza. My husband ordered the meat lovers pizza and was very happy with his choice. I ordered the shrimp scampi and was disappointed. It was very bland. The carbonara was decent. The highlight of our dinner was our server. She was attentive, funny and provided enjoyable service.

The best prepared snapper I have had on the island. Skip the pasta and order a Greek salad. It was a perfect meal! Their pizza is made with a whole wheat crust. It is the healthiest and best tasting pizza in Vieques! Open Monday through Friday during the winter season. Give it a try; I do not think you will be disappointed!

Yes the food is good, pizzas are thin crust, and possibly the best on the island. Its another expat place filled with visiting and resident mainlanders. Staff seems more interesting in hanging with the regulars than taking orders from new customers. Better know what you want when the waitress shows up or she will run off to another table. They do not seem to like to many questions about the dishes either.

Trivia night (Tuesdays ?) is loud and crowded.

They do not split checks.

But the pizza is good.
