Had the chicken and rice with fried plantain for lunch. It is cafeteria style but the food tasted fresh and the price was reasonable. Staff was friendly and spoke enough English to understand exactly what we wanted and answered any questions. Good place for lunch or quick dinner, they do deliver, and average Spanish food .

Best puertorrican food in town. Reasonable prices. Warm place and good service. The variety is limited but its worthy.

Shawnaa's is a great place to stop for a quick bite while you're Isabella. You will not leave hungry! The portion are generous! They serve typical Puerto Rican foods. There were four of us there the day we ate at Shawnaa's and we all got different meals. We all left happy (and very full)!

We went on a random Monday afternoon in December and they were cleaning up with all the food packed away.

My best friend is Puerto Rican, and this was just like his mom's cooking. Fantastic food, very casual atmosphere and the cheapest most filling lunch on the island. Highly recommend.

Get there as close to 11am as possible. Once they run out of a dish, it's over!!! However all the food stays hot and fresh.

For what it is, a mid day weekday cafeteria, it can't be beat for money and reasonably tasty food. They pull it out of the kitchen so fast the food does not have time to get old. Very popupar with locals. The best of the budget places to eat in Isabel II.

The spelling on the sign is Shaunaa's and in the phone book is Shauna's but Shawnaa's seems to show up more. This is a spotlessly clean, air conditioned, hard to find parking little island cafeteria that typically has veal, pork chops, fish, and baked chicken, beans and rice, fried plantains, and a small selection of ice cream all freshly prepared...

We visited Shawnaa's based on the recommendation of the people from our car rental company. It's located in Isabell II. We parked along the street and went in for lunch. I wasn't 100% sure what we were ordering (it's cafeteria style), but what we ended up getting some sort of rice and beans, chicken, and pork, The food was pretty... More
