This is in a beautiful location on the northwest side. Really nice that they have tables where you can put your feet in the sand while you eat or drink. In this area, we had better food at Muelle 7 and Bally Hoo though.

Was recommended to us by concierge. We really enjoyed the beach atmosphere with music and delicious seafood. Service was friendly. Located perfectly in downtown. Will definitely return again.

This being our first meal on Isla, it is definitely memorable...Great dining with toes in the sand, live music in the background and the best Margaritas. This place is full of locals so you know you are getting the real deal. Food was great, service was great and all quite affordable. Will be dreaming of the day I can go... More

Margaritas and cerviche to start and our favorites are grilled calamari and the awesome whole fish for the entrees. Favorite spot, of many... More

Located on beach in town, very good ceviche pulpo, excellent guacamole, well prepared whole red snapper. Try the coconut juice (natural) fresh from a tree, still in the outer shell - served with a straw. Serves locals and people from sailboats docked adjacent torestaurant

My husband and I stopped for grilled fish, which is an island specailty. It was served quickly-which rarely happens, that shold have been our first clue. I was cold with poor flavor. When asked how our food was told the waiter and nothing was done. Will never eat here again.

Been to Mininos several times. Love the fried fish and ceviche. Fish is always fresh since this is a fishermen restaurant. Right by the beautiful Playa norte. This is a must if you wamt fresh delicious seafood

I cannot write an unbiased review because my husband and I love this unassuming restaurant on the beach. Once you are in love, you forgive the place for its foibles and nuances. I am quite aware it is not trendy, or pretty (although they have renovated nicely a second floor in the last couple of years), or even consistent with... More

I always come back to this restaurant visiting the island, the food is fresh and plentiful and pricing is reasonable. I have had the fresh catch of the day which was delicious. Most recently I had the fried shrimp which was lightly breaded and cooked to perfection. The side dishes were a wonderful addition to the meal.
