We were on a private snorkeling boat and asked our guide where he eats fresh fish on the Island. He recommended Velazquez. We ate there three times after the recommendation. The fish was fresh caught that day from the local fishermen. Moist, flakey and tasty. Also the chicken fajitas were very good. Right on the beach gives a wonderful view in the day or the evening as the sun it setting. The owner was attentive, informative and cooked out fish perfectly. We will be back!

If you like to try the local food, interact with the local people and enjoy fresh seafood, you can be assured of really good food at Velazquez. We've been going there for decades and have watched the little ones grow up to wait tables and have children of their own. It's a family affair. The fish is caught daily, and you can watch them bring it in off the boat and sometimes select the one you want to eat! They provide complimentary wonderful guacamole and chips with meals. Grandpa Valasquez has a big heart, doesn't speak English but loves to follow baseball!

We love Isla! Ate here with my husband and 10 month old. My husband had a fried whole fish and said it was really good. I had shrimp tacos and liked them. They also give you fresh guacamole with pico de gallo and chips. Love sitting at the plastic tables with our feet in the sand overlooking the water!
