Description: Monkey Island Beach Cafe offers real Tex-Mex and Seafood in an amazing beachside and seaview location in the heart of the West End. We have a full bar featuring Roatan's signature drink, the Monkey LaLa, Margaritas, Honduran and American beers and wine. We have live music several nights a week. We also offer free Wi-Fi for all of our guests. Our signature menu items include our famous coconut lobster, the biggest and best coconut shrimp and bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and cheese. We also feature real Tex-Mex food including Chile Rellenos, Fajitas, enchiladas, nachos, guacamole, queso and Bob Armstring dips and free chips and salsa for every table. For the fish lovers our fishermen bring us us whatever they are catching. It might be Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo or even spearfish taken lionfish. It varies by the season and even daily so ask your server what we have in. You can get our fish coconut style, as our tequila fish, perfectly grillled or in our fish tacos.

“Great food and company.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Monkey island is a locals and a tourist hangout so it is where the action is. The owners are super people and always ready to have a great time with their clients. The chilli rellenos is my favorite menu item but have tried many other items as well and they were delish.
Good prices and the location is the best .

“Roatan 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a great place to really relax and have a great meal and a great time. The staff is awesome and goes above and beyond what you would expect and the drinks and company are awesome. The owners are there most of the time and ready to sit and talk and answer questions about the island or whatever...also, it's right across the street from the beach and you can go cool off in the water and come back to your table...I highly recommend this restaurant. It's family friendly...Vidal and Jodie, thanks for a memorable week, especially the New Orleans party...

“You have to try this one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We loved Monkey Island when we visited Roatan. We stayed at the West Bay and it was worth the trip! In fact, we went back the next night because we wanted to try other menu items. The food was delicious, authentic Tex-Mex. I loved the enchiladas and the fish tacos were excellent too. The drinks were tasty, you have to try the Monkey La-La! The atmosphere was fun and lively, the place was happening! Service was great too!
