“All around great!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

You start by sitting in a great open-air, on the water, small dinning area. The servers are genuine and friendly, making you feel special as they call the gentlemen "Padron" and the ladies "Princess". The food was delicious and at a fair price. The atmosphere is welcoming and it is a great place to relax, enjoy the view, and stay a while. Every once and a while the food is on a little wait, but it is definetly worth it. I fell in love with the quesadillas and nachos, and writing this make me wish I could have some right now.

“Really? Modern Mexican cuisine? Or Continental Mexican/American”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Completely over-rated! Fish tacos are 1/2 the price at Barracuda and a lot fresher with better local atmosphere. This is a great location over looking the ocean, but like many other places they've tried to cater to the masses ( ala TGI Fridays style). The food is over engineered and reminds me of a recent CIA graduate. Not that this is bad, but rather than truly incorporating local ingredients, they've chooses the mass marketing route. For me I'd rather see a chef try to be great than one that is comfortable being marginal. Save your money and go to a local's mom and pop place. Trust me it is definitely worth being the first to discover the next great spot rather than be a sheep in a herd without a Shepard!

hello,
my name is eva, and i am the owner of the blue angel resort and restaurant.

first of all, please let me say, i am sorry you did not enjoy the fish tacos at the restaurant. they are tempura style and perhaps they were not what you were expecting, and i apologize.

we are a hotel, where guests of many types come to eat. the hotel restaurant needs to have a variety of choices to please all people that come to the restaurant, whether hotel guests, locals, or island visitors. i know you did not like the tacos but i must tell you, our fish tacos are very popular and they are one of our most ordered entree on our lunch menu and the same for the happy hour menu, which at that time you would get two orders (mix and match) for the price of one. so i guess people do like the tacos.....you just don´t happen to be one of them.

As for the prices,i am not sure exactly when you came, but i do keep very careful track of prices of different items at different restaurants, and truthfully, unless it was some special day, i can assure you that the tacos are not half the price at no name bar at barracuda´s. i actually know the owner there, and have eaten there many times; i am pretty sure of this.

finally, i would not normally have thought of replying to this review, but i have to be honest, i found your review really entertaining, (even if you didn´t like my place).. i read reviews everyday for my place and many other places, i even write reviews myself.... but yours was real treat... i really liked the tgifriday comment, even if i dont agree with you... and the comment that our tacos are overengineered like the CIA comment was hilarious, even if i am not sure, how i would underengineer a fish taco...

but, in the end, the sheep in the herd without a shepherd comment was over the top! i laughed and laughed and actually showed it to one of my guests! you deserves kudos for that!

i am sorry we couldn´t make you happy but you sound like a hilarious person... if you ever make it to the island again, please, come by, i will buy you a margarita...maybe you will give me a second chance.

cheers!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is the second time we have stayed at this resort to dive. The staff is great and the food is delicious. We went out to eat once during our stay but preferred the food here. It made for a great relaxing dive vacation with 3 teens. They played music on several nights. I could do without this but since our room was at the other end of the hotel it was not a problem. Many of the same staff that was there from 2 years ago when we visited.

“Gem on the Island”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great food and live guitar music. Just a short cab ride South of the town plaza this hotel / restaurant will not disappoint. The restaurant isn't very large so it is best to book ahead for your table. Restaurant adjacent the hotel over looks the ocean has a excellent and friendly atmosphere.

“Delicious food, great view, and the best staff!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Just wanted to say thank you to Sergio, EZ, and the rest of the staff for another great visit. This is our third year, and it's so awesome to come back and be greeted like family coming home! These people really love their customers and go the extra mile to make you feel special. None of that would matter if the food was no good, but IT'S DELICIOUS!!! Big portions, good prices, killer view, and awesome happy hour specials make the BA Restaurant a slam dunk! Even if you're not staying here, do yourself a favor and come by for a bite to eat, and also for the live music in the evenings!!
