No more Happy Belly's It has closed. Was a great spot in its day. They have a spot at the airport, but not quite the same ambiance.

Decent food....view is fantastic. Had lunch there with the kids 11 & 13 perfect for that. Seems like it might be a rockin place at night.

This place has gone downhill over the years. From the broken fixtures, countertops, and tables to the poor service and average food, the only positive is the beachside location. Our drinks were never refilled and we had to go and search for the server for the check. We won't ever be back.

Had dinner here our first night in Isabela. We had the Fajitas for 2, kids had cheese quesadillas. Good food, the place must really rock on a Saturday night! Would return for the view of Jobos and if in the mood for bar food. All in all a fun place to eat!

Visited this place when I came to Jobos Isabela to watch the rip curl pro surfing contest, and had a belly buster home made burger in this bar/restaurant and it was one of the best burgers i've ever had. The panoramic view was beatiful and you could also see the contest with some binoculars pretty clearly.

My husband and I are still trying to figure out what the apostrophe is for in "Belly's?" My husband and I had been sightseeing through the mountains all day and wanted to stop about 2pm for drinks and some snacks. No one should be surprised from the outside of this place that it is not even two star dining, the... More

Stopped in for lunch. I was the only person there from 12:30 to 1:30pm which was strange but telling. Place is filthy and chairs and tables are in disrepair. Very little local food but they did have mofongo for $20!!! Not worth your time or money. I had a salad and a sandwich - not going back.
