“Great food and amazing atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

We had a large group, and they were very accommodating! We say on the back deck in the evening and it was wonderful! The food was amazing, and the drinks were too! I ordered the special of a coconut fried chicken! It was to die for!! Danny and his staff were very professional and wonderful! You cannot go wrong visiting!! It was our first time there and it won't be our last. It's a must stop on our Isla Mujeres vacation!!

We are so glad you enjoyed your experience at Barlito Marina Paraiso! It really is nice to be able to accommodate big groups! When we were on Hidalgo, we were so limited with space. Our customer service has always been a priority. On Hidalgo, we were a small operation & I was always on the floor. Now that we serve breakfast, lunch & dinner our staff is bigger & I have some different responsibilities. It is so nice to know that you felt Danny & the rest of our staff took great care of you. That is so important to us. Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We really appreciate it & look forward to your next visit.

My best regards,
Tiffany

Great atmosphere, good, easy location on the Island, and wonderful staff! Denny and his staff were very inviting, informative, and had great reccomendations plus descriptions of the cuisine. There were 13 in our party on July 1, 2014; all were completely satisfied. Give them a visit - you're sure to enjoy! Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a nice review for Barlito Marina Paraiso. Some of our closest friends live in South Carolina & we met them right here on Isla 12 & 16 years ago. We do wish we had more time to travel off Island & visit all the charming cities our clients are from. Being from South Carolina, you all are used to great seafood & southern cuisine, we are so glad you enjoyed your meals at Barlito! We look forward to"you all" coming back for another visit!

My best regards,
Tiffany

“Great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Barlito was a hike from our hotel, but it was a beautiful place to eat. I had a coconut encrusted chicken special that was fantastic. The portions were quite large, so I couldn't finish it. The drinks were tasty as well.

Thank you for coming out to our new location at Marina Paraiso. We realize it is not as convenient especially for those visitors staying downtown. We are very happy that you enjoyed your coconut fried chicken!. That has been a very popular special. We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review for us & look forward to your next visit to Barlito!

My best regards,
Tiffany

“Just ok, but we'll give it another try next time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

We visited Barlito the week of 17-June for dinner. We got there well past sunset and were the only customers at the restaurant that night. The menu was a bit scattered and really didn't have a consistent theme. The dinner menu had about 12-15 items on it and ranged from local caught fish to spaghetti. Really? Spaghetti? I had chicken with vegetables served on skewers. The veggies came out raw, which normally would not be a problem, but raw potatoes really don't taste that good. That said, my wife and our friends enjoyed their dinner, so I'll fairly rate this as average to above average...a 3.5. We'll try this place another time on our next trip to the island.

For the would-be diner, my suggestion for dining in the evening is to get there before sunset. The view of the lagoon and hotel courtyard looks like it would be great that time of day.

Thank you for taking the time to post an honest review of your thoughts & experience at Barlito Marina Paraiso. Your spaghetti comment made us laugh! It may seem weird but as a hotel, marina & restaurant, we do have lots of Mexican national clients. Our spaghetti Bolognese is one of the most popular menu items with our national clientele. Our chef Brayan cooks the Bolognese all day long with the freshest ingredients & it truly is excellent. We do apologize for not explaining to you the vegetables on the skewer. We only have oven roasted potatoes on our menu not on the skewer. What you are referring to is actually Chayote, a local squash. In the Wikipedia description it says, "a texture is described as a cross between a potato and a cucumber." We should explain to our clients so others do not think we are serving raw potatoes! Thanks for the heads up! We do cook our vegetables el dente as different textures is the objective when putting together our entrees. Our menu does have a broad base of choices, really to reach our broad base of customers. Right now, our hotel & marina have clients from England, Mexico City, Rome, Texas, Colorado, Canada, Cancun & the Netherlands. It is never easy to put together menus to satisfy everyone but we can guarantee you the freshest ingredients Isla has to offer across all of our menus! Since you were here we did introduce a new dinner menu that our clients are really enjoying. We do appreciate your giving us another try in the future. And look forward to your thoughts on your next visit. Thanks again for your honesty. We want to learn & improve as a business & your thoughts help us do so.

My best regards,
Tiffany
