We came to The Hole in the Wall as part of a Martha Stewart excursion from MSC cruises. Our guide said that Martha Stewart wanted a true Roatan experience. After speaking with Capt. Ed, the bartender, Martha Stewart actually went there. The place is funky....You can't driver there. Boat only. It rained when we got off the boat and the we found out the roof has holes too! But the service was great and the food was really quite good! It's seafood with sides. I spoke with Capt Ed. From CT originally. Then West Palm Beach for a bunch of years. I told him him he looks like Jeff 'Skunk" Baxter of Steely Dan and Doobie Brothers. As far as the 'baby monkey"....does any of these reviewers know it's a baby....or just a small monkey. Also. is it always on a chain. This is not the USA. Things are different and I loved it! Not a Martha Stewart fan, but she nailed this tour! BTW, proceeds from Martha Stewart tours go directly to the local people involved. If I go back to Roatan, I'll go back here in an instant....if it's not raining! Cheers!More

It is a hole in the wall, but fun. Have been there several times and enjoyed the food. Both my husband and I enjoy Ed, the bartender.

I went to this restaurant because I heard so many great things about it and so I added it to my tourist list of things to do.  I got the lobster burger for $15 US dollars and it was pretty good.  My boyfriend got the...lobster dinner, he liked it but the lobster tails were very small.  Is that legal to catch them that small? It was more like a large shrimp than a lobster.  My sister got the lobster nacho plate, she hated that.  It had the FAKE CHEESE and canned jalapeños / olives on top.  It looked gross because that fake cheese ruins food.  Anyway, the food was expensive and it was hit or miss.  My friend was talking to the cooks because there had been a mistake on some order and he said he saw the cooks microwaving the lobster, so I guess that explains why some say it tastes over cooked.  Overall, the food was okay. It's hyped up because you have to get a boat to go there.  My main concern was the MONKEY ON A LEASH tied to the ceiling.  The baby monkey had no food, it was eating cooked green pepper he found in the couch cushions (eww gross, couch cushion old food).  His water dish was empty so my sister refilled it. I felt so bad, where was this baby monkey's mother? How is this legal to have this animal with a collar around its little waist attached to a leash, no where to go? There was no supervision of who was handling the monkey at all either, which seems unsafe for both human and monkey.  So not just the animal cruelty or the legality of this, but who had the grand idea of bringing the zoo to the restaurant? Seems like a last hope to get more tourists to come because the food is going downhill over the years so maybe a cute baby monkey will help. Nope. Try again.   I didn't even mention the Trump signs everywhere and the Swasticka tattoo but the monkey on a leash and the fake cheese was a start. No need to finish.More

Captain Ed is quite the character! This place is very secluded and you can only get to it by boat. Great drinks and food as well. Be sure to hang out in the hammock and play with the monkey! He is very nice and sweet.

Stopped here and had a couple of drinks while on Cleve's Tours and Adventures. Interesting place. I did not eat any of their food but the drinks were on the tip top end of the scale.

Luckily got to make it here while in Roatan. Drove to Jonesville to get on a boat to visit. When you think you’re lost in Jonesville, you’re not, just keep going and you’ll find a boat to take you. Had the lobster burger which was...really good! Service was great and a good place to meet others on the island. The ring game and beer drinking contraption they had were all very entertaining.More

Really cool experience off the beaten path. Food was okay but the people were wonderful. The entire family enjoyed our afternoon doing the mangrove tour and relaxing at Hole in the Wall.
