touted as great seafood place but did not find menu to be remarkable or food very good. Service was haphazard. Would not return.

We've been to this wonderful restaurant many times over the years. This visit, we were sad to learn that it was being remodeled during our stay on the island. No worries. We will be back when it has a fancy upper deck and thatched roof. Looks like it aims to be fancier, but I really like this laid back restaurant... More

As soon as I get off the ferry I head to Mininos. The whole fish is my favorite. The cocktails are good and usually the service is nice. Sit at a table with your feet in the sand and watch the sunset. Its beautiful!

Great sea food, whole fish cooked to perfection, great lobster. You can also enjoy the view of the ocean. You might get lucky depending on the time of day, and see the fishermen bring in the catches of the day.

The good thing about this thing is they cook really well.Fresh grilled fish... More

Dinner and drinks for 300$ pesos or less. The garlic fish filet was my favorite..mmm mmm. We WILL be back. Step of the ferry... More
