Really fun restaurant on Vieques- excellent smoked chicken and great cocktails. Always a fun atmosphere at the bar. Wear bug spray though as it is outdoor. Highly recommended!

Dinner was excellent - mostly barbecue choices. Portions were large. We were joined by a very sweet cat. There seemed to be many locals dining the night we were there.

The sushi was ok, the BBQ was a bit under average. Food was fast to the table tho. We did not go out of our way to eat here again.

I loved Tin Box and ate there twice in my 5-day trip. I had both the BBQ and the sushi and found both to be the best meals I had during my vacation. Highly recommend!
