To Be Tried Restaurants

Since we all, or at least most of us, have such limited time on Isla that it’s impossible to try every place that is recommended yet still go back to your “tried and true” places, do you have a list of to-be-tried restaurants? Places you are intrigued by or wish you have tried. Here’s mine in no particular order

Limon (really sorry we didn’t make it there this August)

Chuuk Kay

Rooster Café for breakfast

Fenix

Mama Rosa

But their menu does say Poc Chuc, lol, and Hollyeats calls it El Poc Chuc Mercado, so that adds to the confusion.

And Moineau, I want to know what restaurants are on your to be tried list, not the ones you already ate at and liked :)

I haven't seen anyone mention Olivia's. I will be back on Isla 2 months from today for the 3rd time this year. I will certainly try out some of the eateries on the lists you have all provided. Cheers!

Wayne, I think Olivia wasn't mentioned because most of us have tried it already. This list was for those places we have yet to try.

Don't worry Wayne, you're not too far gone on the tequilla, I haven't been to Olivia and I know 4 other people who haven't either.

Well then you are going to love Olivia's. We will be eating there on Dec 6 for my daughter's 12th birthday. It is her favorite so far.
