“Island Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

This is a small restaurant on the private beach for the hotel and it was surprisingly good. We visited three times on our trip and enjoyed the food, the iguanas (really, they were there) and the birds and the chickens. You would imagine this would be a simple "heat some stuff up" restaurant but the fresh fruit was great and the fish and chips was an entire fresh fish - no frozen stuff. Far better than we expected on a captive island location.

“Horrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The bartenders and servers provided the absolute worst service I have experienced in a very long time. What do they care??? Once you hit Palomino Island, you are a captive audience. I was so turned off by the female bartenders and their crap attitudes that my family and I never returned to the island after our first afternoon there.

“Nice place to grab a bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

The food was okay, nothing great, but it is a beachside cafe. Flies are all over, not a terrible thing, but some people that bother, but its unavoidable since you are outdoors. Staff is very friendly and it hits the spot if you are hungry.

“Meh...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Not my favorite place but has a couple things that are decent. I think the whole hotel is overpriced for what they serve. This is one of the better places with Shima's being the best. The rest are definitely below average.
