“San Pedro's real hidden treasure”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Aba Isieni is a wonderful little restaurant with great people. Some of the best food in San Pedro can be found at such unassuming "hole in the wall" places frequented by locals. We stopped there several times during our week on the Island and were never disappointed. Whatever Santos has available when you go will be great and it will be very reasonably priced. His jerk sauce is addictive. Understand though that there are only two plastic tables and you don't go there for atmosphere. We enjoyed ordering to go and eating at our hotel.

“The locals eat here”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Aba Isieni was recommended by our water taxi driver. He said they had the best jerk on the island. So, hubby and I ordered the jerk chicken and fish.The food was wonderful. Both meals including drinks and tip was $15 US, simply unheard of in San Pedro. The owner and his daughter provided excellent service. I plan to go back before we leave the island.

“Quality and love continue”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We've eaten here often- the jerk chicken and fish. This was the first time we got there early enough to get a fried snapper... the last two. The food is perfectly cooked and the owners are good people and it's a great conversation.

“One Love=good food!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We have eaten here several times since out first visit to the island in April 2012. The food is made with love and it shows in every bite. We love the jerk and just missed the fried fish because our table mate ordered the last one.
