BTW -- people of all ages, not a 20s-only crowd (at least during the day). really good fish tacos. highly recommend.

You have to try the jerk chicken on a skewer! We stopped here for lunch after touring the island and I ordered the jerk chicken and a frozen mojito. They were fabulous!!

We pulled up to try the Joint one day and as we were about to enter, the waiter greeted us arms crossed and as we said hello he quite rudely said only "The kitchen's closed. Drinks only". What a warm welcome! We had a so-so and expensive drink, got ignored by our fabulous waiter, got attacked by mosquitos. Won't ever... More

Wonderful. Probably our fav place on the island. We've had all the food. Especially notable are the Chicken Satay Tacos and the Fish Tacos. Also the Margaritas, better order them by the pitcher! Our waiter Victor was the best. He made the experience even better. We went the several times in a big group of 8 with two kids 8... More

Stopped here twice during a recent trip to Isla. The drinks were great and so was the food, when it finally got to the table. Not a place to go for something quick. But worth the wait. The coconut shrimp was outstanding, as were the shrimp quesadillas. They also offer a habanero tequila shot that everyone should try. This place... More

I still remember the frozen mojitos a month later! Great atmosphere out in the woods. Service was slow after it got busy. We were going to order food, but the waiter was busy (potentially understaffed). It's a really fun place!

and mozzies. It is a good thing they provide bug spray. Depending on when you go you will need it. We were there late in the afternoon and the mozzies were thick. We stayed for a round of Sols, and some guacamole and had to leave.

We took a day trip to the Isla. We stopped because family had been here previous weeks. To our dismay, the electric power was off. As you probably know, frozen mojitos are made in an electric-powered blender, so sad, we ordered them on the rocks. They were OK. The food was typical Mexican. The restroom facilities are minimal but satisfactory.... More

Fun place to enjoy some cocktails and listen to some live music. The frozen mojito is really yummy! We did not eat the food.
