“Absolutely amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

It fells right at home and the artistic atmosphere of this little restaurant, with a lot of art and history makes the place very special. They make amazing fresh fruit juices and smoothies to live for. Tried the coconut fish fillet, that comes with rice and a side of fresh fruits, and still remember it. Waitress was very friendly and so was the owner and the cook. This place is definitely family owned, and everyone there has a genuine smile on their faces (you just know). Will go back!

“Oh what a little gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

My friend Dona Lolita and her husband Don Marco own and run La Isla and have since 1977 or thereabouts. Yes, I'm a tad prejudiced, but here's the thing: the food is delicious, plentiful and the prices are competitive. The owners are very supportive of live music and the arts so periodically, a local musician, Don Victor, will show up for an impromptu serenade. If you speak Spanish, say hello to Dona Lolita and ask to see her jewelry cases while you have a margarita, pina colada or a delicious mocktail of hibiscus, mineral water and lime.

“Excellent service, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

We went to this place for breakfast twice, the attention was incredible, very fast and exactly what we required, we asked special things for our baby and the personal was really helpful.
The food was wonderful, the motulenos eggs were fantastic. We really enjoyed this restaurant!

“Food was so good we went back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I ordered the chicken enchiladas swiss which comes with a creamy sauce with a hint of lime and melted swiss cheese on top. The cream sauce reminded me of one of the best cream sauces I have ever had in Rome a few years ago. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
