I had been here before for dinner back in March which was excellent. This time I tried out their Sunday Brunch. $20USD for great choices, like steak and eggs and hash browns, I had Egg's Benny with lashings of smoked salmon and talk about free flowing mimosa's - left me the bottle of bubbly complete with ice bucket and great...

We walked in and Nigel the bartender remembered us from last year! What a nice guy and a real treat. We also had an older person in our group and this was a quiet place he could handle. Good food and wine, the staff assisted us with our special needs. The grounds are beautiful too. We went several times on... More

This was one of our last meals on the island and it was recommend by almost anyone we talked to while in West Bay, probably because its the only one of its kind on the beach. The food and wine was great but the servings were very large and I didn't even come close to finishing mine. For what we... More

In May I was fortunate enough to celebrate another birthday at the Vintage Pearl Restaurant. This has become an annual event and it was excellent yet again. The food was delicious, the wines superb and the overall experience an occasion to remember. A special mention needs to go to Darwin, our waiter. His service was to be commended. He provides... More

After multiple meals in beachside bar/restaurants, our family splurged for a more high-end dining experience at Vintage Pearl. Our appetizers, salads, steaks, surf and turf with lobster, and fish were all excellent, as was dessert. Cocktails and wine were also very good. Enjoying some air-conditioned comfort in bare feet was also nice.

I believe most locals (Americans) who own property on the island regard the VP as the special occasion place. It does have mixed reviews within that community, and some shy away from recommending the VP because it could be argued it is overpriced. But the reality of Roatan is there are few fine dining establishments. Roatan is not Hawaii, or... More

We visited many restaurants in west bay and this was by the far the best! It's a must try! The sign said make a reservation but we walked right in.. The wait staff was attentive but also gave us our time. The salad was so fresh and each course was terrific. We will be back
