We walked by during the morning (before our scuba trip) and they were filleting the fish we later ate!

Perhaps a bit too close to the main drag and consequently a bit too busy and hectic, but...the food and service are excellent! I visited with friends twice and the 2x4 meals were all outstanding!

This used to be my first dinner on the island every year for 12 years in a row. The last time, it was awful. No chips & salsa put on the table like every other time (and at every other restaurant on the island). And because there was no salsa, I had nothing to doctor the mushy, flavorless, completely inedible... More

This is one of the oldest restaurants on the island and its seen better days. It’s always been somewhat up and down but a tip is don’t go there unless there are a number of people. For some reason when the restaurant is empty, they don’t even attempt to provide hot, fresh food. If its crowded, you may wait a... More

One of our favorite places on Isla. Love to put my feet in the sand and have some shrimp or guacamole. Everything is fresh and affordable.

We arrived on Isla and wanted seafood. We had a grilled fish dinner with rice, beans and tortillas right on the beach with the fishing boats nearby and the sun setting. Great time!

Fantastic seafood. Went for my wife's birthday and it was amazing. Lobster pizza was absolutely delicious. 1.5lb Lobster tail and our red snapper dishes were phenomenal. I asked for a cake for her birthday and they brought the most incredible Key Lime Pie we had ever had. Impeccable service and amazing food. Thank you for a most excellent experience!!!

This place was recommended to us by a taxi driver last year....it was the FIRST place we went to eat this year! Truly a hole in the wall type place, but GREAT food, and view. Prices are very good. Only ate there twice this year....our loss!

There are many fish restaurants right in a row on the beach but this is my favorite. This the last one on the beach so it's a little more secluded, surrounded by the boats and the dock. We shared the whole red snapper and it was a big meal! Great spot for simple and honest fish dishes.
