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.

“Friendly service”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Went here twice. The first time was breakfast and we really liked the food, scrambled eggs and fruit,free delicious coffee! Second time was dinner and 2 of us liked the meal, 2 didn't. Service both times was excellent, very friendly and prompt! Free internet also was nice. the only problem was the cheese...the cheese looked great and smelled awful. I don't know why this seems to happen on islands but I couldn't eat my meal and neither could my daughter...I guess we are a bit to sensitive to the smell! I'd eat there again, but just not order anything with cheese.

“Great seafood, Fresh”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My mother and I traveled to Roatan for a week long snorkeling trip. The first place we ate after getting off the plane was at Monkey Island. We were so hungry and the food was great. We were thinking that maybe it was so good because we were that hungry. We went back a couple of more times and it was great each time. The fish was fresh and the staff was very attentive. It is very relaxed, music on Friday night, view out to the ocean / beach and a great time!! It is one of our 'must do's' when we head back to Roatan.

Reviewed July 17, 2013

We came here and had lunch and drinks before hitting the beach. Wait staff and manager were so so nice and the food was amazing! We will come back here again next time without a doubt.

“Best Place on the isla Roatan”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The food is great and the atmosphere warm and island friendly. I am sitting here on their wifi watching the blue waves from the ocean splash on the white sands. Drinking the Mai Tai and my wife is having the Monkey LaLa. It is a chocolate frozen drink. The staff is great. Speedy service and great food. We had the Bob Armstrong queso and I had the chile rellleno with the island rice and potatoes. Great place to bring the kids as they have good food for the the kids to eat.
