By far the best restaurant that we tried on Roatan! We stayed at Las Verandas, loved it, but wanted to venture out for dinner. I was blown away by how good it was! Food on Roatan was good, not great, for the most part - but we had GREAT food at Frangipani.
The calamari appetizer was awesome, and all of the fish specials that we tried were perfect (oh, yeah - we ended up going to dinner twice:).
I did not think the atmosphere was pretentious at all - in fact, I thought it was super warm and inviting, like dining at a friend's house. The bartender was a sweetie - talked to us for an hour while we waited on our table (we arrived 2hrs early for cocktail hour - they graciously agreed to seat us early).
Finally, the desserts were incredible. The kitchen is open-air, and the smell of those cookies, ah! Still dreaming. You should go to this place for sure if you visit Roatan and want a great meal in a super inviting setting! Yes, it is expensive, but it's vacation and it's worth it! They put time, effort, and the best ingredients they can find into their food and the overall dining experience! it is obvious the entire staff cares a great deal about what they are doing!
