Description: Monkey Island Beach Cafe offers real Tex-Mex and Seafood in an amazing beachside and seaview location in the heart of the West End. We have a full bar featuring Roatan's signature drink, the Monkey LaLa, Margaritas, Honduran and American beers and wine. We have live music several nights a week. We also offer free Wi-Fi for all of our guests. Our signature menu items include our famous coconut lobster, the biggest and best coconut shrimp and bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and cheese. We also feature real Tex-Mex food including Chile Rellenos, Fajitas, enchiladas, nachos, guacamole, queso and Bob Armstring dips and free chips and salsa for every table. For the fish lovers our fishermen bring us us whatever they are catching. It might be Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo or even spearfish taken lionfish. It varies by the season and even daily so ask your server what we have in. You can get our fish coconut style, as our tequila fish, perfectly grillled or in our fish tacos.

“Make this place your local!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

My daughter and I spent last week in Roatan and truly fell in love with the island!
On our first day we wandered into Monkey Island Beach Cafe and had an awesome meal and 2 for 1 margaritas. We loved this cute, beachy place so much that we made it our local hangout for the week!
The owners were so super friendly and the new manager Blake was very welcoming and made sure he went around to each table to do a quality check and speak with the patrons.
Chips and Salsa are delivered as soon as you get there and from then on the rest of the meal is always great! my personal fav......fish tacos....to die for!
What better way to hang out than sit in the open air and people watch or listen to a great band!
Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
Cheers

“Excellent place!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We tried Monkey Island for the first time and really enjoyed it. We've been to the island several times and have tried many places, but this was one of the better ones. Our server, Clifford, was friendly and funny, real helpful and fast service. The food was delicious, lots of flavour, and we all ate every bite. Blake, the owner, was friendly and helpful as well, and offered us a drink when they didn't have what we ordered. There was a nice Mother's Day special with free Monkey Lalas! Can't complain about that.
This is an excellent restaurant and we look forward to coming back.

“Go for the music, skip the food!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is a great place for live music with plenty of space and a huge bar. We went on a weekend and the place was packed. The food was dismal. My husband ordered the coconut shrimp after being told they were "the best on the island". They were overcooked, tasteless and rubbery and very disappointing at $16. I ordered flour tortilla chicken tacos ($8) which were less than average. Go for the music and have a drink but skip the food.
