“Really good food, friendly service”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

We enjoyed a great meal at the Roatan Oasis. The atmosphere was laid back and the food was very good. The calamari was great, the chilled avocado soup was delicious - cool temperature with a spicy kick, the sea bass & risotto and the portobello shroom burger were absolutely wonderful. Don't miss the homemade Snickers bar with ice cream for dessert. The ingredients were fresh and prepared with creativity (Bloody Mary ketchup!). The service was friendly and prompt. The jalapeño mojito and summer spritzer cocktails were winners. Definitely worth a visit.

“Fantasitic food and view”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is a more upscale restaurant than most on WE and is located just out of WE heading toward West Bay. The food is a work of art, and the owner takes great pride in producing delightful dishes that will please the palate. Still a laid back atmosphere with an amazing treetop view.

“Spicy was the name of the game but owners quickly extinguished the fire”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

This restaurant came highly rated with locals and trip advisor. Although it is a little out of town we decided to take the 2 minute cab ride (which is $5 each way). We would have walked but a lot of warning from everyone made us think twice even though we feel that our time in New Orleans prepares us for living a little on the edge. The space is new and clean and has a pretty deck over looking a pool that is charming. The place was relatively full for a Thursday night in the summer. The menu changes regularly which is why I'm sure it's a hit with locals, and the all the food uses ingredients local to the area. Neither of us were interested in the meat options so we both tried asian infused meals including the Red Curry and Mongolian Noodles. When we got our food it looked and smelled delicious but upon tasting each meal they were SUPER SPICY! (And we are from Louisiana where spice is part of life!) The mongolian noodles did have an edge of sweetness that tamed the fire but the Red Curry was like lighting a candle on your tongue.
The proprietress Loren is hands on in the restaurant and asked how the meal was. We warned her that anyone else other than us might have sent the dishes back because they were so so spicy.
She came back saying that she'd tried them and that someone in the kitchen must have over spiced the dishes and she offered free dessert for us both to tame our fire tongues.
She was so sweet and helpful and even the best restaurants can have adventuresome chefs that might over do the heat. The problem was generously solved and will likely never happen again.

“Roatan Oasis”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Dined with Lauren last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Every restaurant has a story and we enjoyed hearing how this restaurant evolved. Her first idea was to run a deli out of a container, and now it's a three story building with a great bar and a local following of ex-pats who dine there weekly. "Oasis" is a perfect name as the variety of dishes represented makes it an oasis for fans of many cuisines. I had the potato gnochhi with loads of fresh chopped basil and crumbled bacon. It came with a wonderful side salad that was as fresh and colorful as I've ever been served. My date had the singapore noodles with chicken and shrimp and raved on it all the way home. Not to go unmentioned is the simple fact that our meals were pleasing to our vacationing tummies, which have been a bit sensitive to some of the dishes we've had while on Roatan. The prices were quite reasonable by American standards and well worth the dining experience we enjoyed. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is that the location. It's pleasant, but not extraordinary.
