One of the best meals on the island

I had an amazing, high quality simple dinner (think plastic furniture on the beach - this place is not fancy) here with some friends (one of whom had been here 8 months before and wanted to return); simple lobster tail with rice and beans, fun, friendly service, cheap beers, good cocktails... read more

we has shrimp cervice in the loft over looking the bay towards Cancun. The restaurant is downtown on the beach. We think they have the best margaritas on the island, made with triple sec, abundant rim of salt. We even stop in for a drink when going to another restaurant to eat.

We have been vacationing in Isla for 17 years. This restaurant has been our favorite since we first tried it at its' original location. They are on the main drag, on the water, towards North Beach when you get off the ferry. Now they have added a palapa with a second floor and great views of the mainland. You can... More

Minino's is a family run restaurant where their fishing boats bring in their catch. We love eating with our feet in the sand. Nothing fancy here but super fresh fish. They make a mean margarita as well. This place looks like nothing but you must give it a try!

New second floor dining area is beautiful and the fish and seafood were ultra-fresh and well priced. Ceviche was one of our favorites on Isla - excellent flavor and generous portions. Service was friendly.

Located right on the beach, you can literally sink your toes in the sand if you want. The fish you eat were probably swimming that same morning. You can watch the fishermen pull their boat up on the beach, and carry their catch into the kitchen. Fresh grilled grouper or pick your own lobster out of a cage...you must try... More

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
