The atmosphere is incredible, volcanic or coral rock walls, with torches lit all around. The menu was fantastic! Only open Thursday-Saturday. Had a cocktail, lobster salad and a beef filet. Along with a bottle of wine from Chile. Best meal on the island!

Restaurant El Castillo is Located in Sandy bay Utila. 10 min walking distance from the center, 2 min from the main road is it very secluded. Whenever you like to relax after a long day of diving with friends here is the spot, the light back ground music and the peaceful atmosphere takes you in a different world. Many young couples come to enjoy the lovely surroundings, and the romantic setting of this place. On the weekend El Castillo opens our doors, the perfect location for a candle light dinner to complete a perfect holiday. We offer light and fine dining food. Fresh fish, sea food, beef, pork, and chicken as well vegetarian dishes are our specialty. All our menu is fresh prepared with fresh herbs from our garden.
