Food is simple but well done. Sits right on the beach prices are reasonable. They provide different activities based on the night. A great place to stop and have a snack and a drink on the beach or have an informal meal.

I recently returned from my 3rd trip to Roatan with my 12 year old daughter. We spent quite a few day sardine the Thirsty Turtle and didn't ry feel the need to explore other places. Amusing patrons, friendly staff, great food and amazing views.

This is a very nice restaurant right on the beach in West Bay. It is right on the silky smooth white sand. Very nice menu with lots of options at very reasonable prices. Very good service from the waitresses here. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal thoroughly.

Ate pizza and lobster bites here on 2 separate occasions. Service was quick, but the food was very average. A good place to grab a quick bite, just don't expect anything exceptional.

Best pizza and bar food. Great frozen drinks. Usually busy and fun. Don't be afraid to be loud and ask for what you need.

Monday nights are by far the most popular night of the week with the 2 for 1 pizza specials. We ate at the Thirsty Turtle about three times. From our experience the food was average at best and the live entertainment was no better. There is far better food in the West Bay and certainly places with far better value.

Seems every night the Bananrama has some sort of entertainment during the dinner hours. I had the BBQ chicken and it was outstanding.

Food was good but Americanized. Would like to have seen more local fare. Prices were reasonable, service was good. Can't beat the views.

We were seated by the very efficient host within 5 minutes of showing up on the busy crab race and fire dancer night. The music was wonderful, a live jazz singer, and the food looked and smelled great. 10 minutes after being seated a server brought us menus and told us our server would take our drink order shortly.

Thanks for taking the time to review the Thirsty Turtle. I'm sorry to hear that you were not properly attended to during your recent visit. Please let me take this opportunity to explain what happened. For the last year, there has been a Ley Seca (Dry Law) in place for all of Honduras. This law states that you cannot sell... More
