Open 3 nights a week. Good selection of fish and meat dishes. Overall, very good quality and quantity. Tuna and snapper were quite good.

During my 5 weeks on Utila, I came to look forward to the nights RJ's was open. They have meat entrees, but I couldn't get enough of their fish. There was always at least 3 or 4 types of fresh fish to choose from on...More

Yes, our go to place for a great meal. We like to get there early for the best selection. The food is available until it's gone...yes it is always fresh. And the salads and condiments that come with your meal will really fill you up...so...More
