I'll keep this short. My husband and I have been going to Isla since 1991. We have watched the island grow for better or worse. But, Barlito's is a MUST every time we go. We both eat a very low cholesterol, fat, diet, but we throw that out the door when we walk in the door. The breakfast menu is... More

My family and I had a great luch at Barlito recently. The four cheese panini was very flavorful, and my grouper sandwich was perfect! We loved the peaceful setting, and the iguanas were fun to watch. Service was great too. We returned the next morning and got cinnamon rolls to go, and they were delicious as well!

This is one of the best places on the island to eat! Fresh food, great variety, ongoing updates to the menu, homemade bread & bagels, incredibly friendly staff (to the point that they want to speak English, when I am trying to practice my Spanish....and the staff's English is very good! (for those who worry about communicating). The only thing... More

The food was OK, but small portions with slow service. Their entrees are more like large appetizers than a main dish.

Oh, no! No one wants ok or decent food while on vacation. Especially, when lots of vacations revolve around eating (at least ours do). We do wish your experience was different. We are not sure what you ordered but usually we get "complaints" our portions are too big. If for some reason, we slighted you on your portion, we do... More

Everything about this place was terrific. The setting and view was beautiful. After we paid the bill, I didn't want to leave... We were there for breakfast and the portions were huge - we could have very easily made breakfast and lunch out of the servings, but the food was so good I ate every bit of it. I don't... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It makes me very happy that you wanted to stay! You should have brought your suit & taken a dip in the pool! We are often told our portions are on the large size or Americanized as our European clients call them. We would much rather have you leave with leftovers then... More

Came to Barlito based on high TripAdvisor rating and the listing as a "most economical restaurant" given that it only has $. The setting is the restaurant's best asset and the owners were quite friendly. Food and service were not great though. Ordered fajitas. They were very bland. Rice. & beans had more flavor than the fajitas. In addition I... More

I just hate that you & rktaranto were so disappointed. When I was chatting with you, I know you were really enjoying your time on Isla. I hope your dinner at Barlito didn't put a damper on your whole vacation. I am not quite sure where the listing as a "most economical restaurant" is. As I mentioned in my response... More

Atmosphere is nice at night with colorful glass lanterns hanging from the trees on the outdoor deck. Owners are friendly. That is where the good ends. Waiters are not friendly nor attentive.
