This beachfront restaurant at the Intercontinental Hotel has excellent service and a beautiful view of the beach. The portions are large enough to share and the drink prices here are lower than at the swim up bar in the pool. I enjoyed several of their pizzas and the Chicken Tortilla on my visit. Although some may say it is pricey... More

We ate lunch here twice while staying at the a Intercontinental Hotel. The food was great. It is a little pricey. But, is well worth it for the atmosphere, view , and service. Sandwiches are $11-$14. They are served with fries. Plenty to share with someone. The hummus with pittas was excellent. There lemonade is wonderful!

Beware...the menu only has prices for the food and not the drinks. We didn't ask the prices expecting they would be overpriced but $11 for one margarita are you kidding me?? The food was good and service was too however; we just can't justify the cost for the drinks even if it is in a beautiful location. We saw one... More

My husband and I had drinks and an appetizer and watched the most amazing sunset on the beach at this restaurant. The restaurant is open air and we spotted it as we passed by while taking a romantic walk on the beach in Carolina/Isla Verde. They have music playing creating a fun and romantic atmosphere. Our waitress was so cute... More

Was surprised by the prices... was more surprised by the amount of food for the price. A hearty meal and a preferred drink provider. Highly recommend the Mango Sunrise. Refreshing and a relative deal compared to the pool bar.

Ate lunch twice here on beach days during our vacation while staying at the InterContinental. First day we sat at a table. Husband had a cuban sandwich, which he found acceptable, but wouldn't go out of his way to order again. I had pizza, which was fine, but not amazing. Leftovers made an okay breakfast the next morning out of... More

We were lounging on the beach right outside of the intercontinental hotel and it began to rain a bit so we decided to grab a quick bite while we rode out the storm. A mediocre burger + club sandwich without drinks or appetizers came to $32 before tip which was pretty pricey, especially considering the okay quality. The service was... More

We walked the beach to find a nice place to have a light dinner and drinks where we could still be in our beachwear. This was a great place for 5 ladies to try fun island drinks and get good sandwiches(lamb pita) and salads. Plus the people watching was amazing. While we were enjoying our dinner a man in a... More

This was a place that should be avoided like the plague. My husband and I sat down after a lovely walk on the beach, for a drink on our first day in Isla Verde. We didn't know too many of the local drinks, so chose 2 randomly from the menu. Mine was fine, but my husband HATED his. Trust me,... More

Today I sat down for lunch at one of the beach tables only to be greeted by a very rude waiter, he asked for my drink order, and proceeded to tell me that I couldn't sit at a table "too long" because they were quite busy. There were many open tables. I simply grabbed my dog and told him to... More
