“Best breakfast on the island . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

After a while, you need a break from open air seating and Honduran humidity. The Hungry Kiwi is air conditioned, and right on the main road, and very nicely appointed. Art on the walls, a reading corner, and, especially, a wonderful breakfast menu. You can order a traditional American breakfast, a variety of European style choices, Eggs Benedict, or one of the specials. Ask Adriaan what he's recommending and you can't go wrong. We really loved the atmosphere and the food. Notwithstanding the luxury setting (Lawson Rock), the prices were very reasonable.

“This Kiwi is a Springbok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Good service, good attention by the south-afrikan owner. Excellent place, excellent food. If tired from the sandfleas and want some fresh restaurant this is the place.

“Didn't even stay to eat”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

If I wanted to eat grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken tenders, I could have stayed in Texas. The prices were high, and the menu was limited to ordinary American food. Boo!!!!

“Best dinner on Roatan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We had a great meal at Hungry Kiwi, the best we've enjoyed in a week on Roatan. We both had the catch of the day - sea bass, with mashed potatoes (my husband), rice (me), and veggies. The meal was exquisite, very fresh and light and just a little tangy. Also enjoyed a lovely salad (included with meal) with the home made tangy Italian dressing. Adrian the owner was very very nice. We each had a glass of Chilean Chardonnay and my husband had the great coconut creme pie. Meal was wonderful and relaxing.

“A must.....even multiple times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We have traveled to Roatan now 6 times and not only find Lawson Rock the most amazing and comfortable place to stay but know that the KIWI will have for us an outstanding meal and relaxed atmosphere. Don't miss the turn coming around the corner and you will be rewarded. Even our children loved the food. Thanks
