Yes, of course the food at Minino's is unbelievably fresh & delicious, but I felt that way about every meal on Isla. What will bring me back is the coooooool vibe....it's like you're having a meal with family, on the beach, with live island music, in the most relaxed atmosphere you can imagine. We ordered Fish Tacos, Guacamole, Fried filet... More

Great service, atmosphere, drinks and food! The seafood was fresh and well prepared. Close to our hotel and not crowded; a nice get-away

I usually go to Minino's forst thing when I get off the ferry every year. I love it! But this April was not as good as the other years. We waited a very long time to get served and then the meal was just so-so. I usually get a whole fish fried. It just wasn't as good as previous visits... More

We went for a late lunch after a day of swimming and exploring the island. We sat on a table on the sand towards the ocean. As soon a we sat, a large group from a youth baseball team came in celebrating a win. How fun!! We ordered the whole fried fish and 2 fresh coconuts. The fish the server... More

Minino's earned three visits on an two day visit to Playa. It is our favorite Mexican Restaurant and seems filled each night with locals and tourists. Highly recommended by our dive shop as a place the locals eat, we loved it.

As this was a restaurant nearby our hotel we thought we would try it. The portions are big, reasonably priced, service was good and if you like seafood that you are onto a winner. There was definitely no wow factor, but it is on the beachfront and if don't mind getting sand on your feet getting to the table, this... More

We have visited the island three times now and during our last trip to Isla we ate at Minino's and enjoyed it so we tried it again on this trip and it is still love it. I love the casual atmosphere with the plastic tables in the sand with a view of the water. The shrimp ceviche can't be beat.... More

I think after reading the reviews here I was maybe expecting too much, it was just ok? We had fish fillet in garlic sauce and fish tacos. The portions were big and the prices were low but just didn't wow me like others have said.
