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. Click on the "Website" link on the upper left side of this page to see and like our Facebook page for food and drink specials, our live music and event schedule, more pictures, special event announcements and general Roatan fun and information.

Mexican flavor, pretty good. Bar nearby with lots of smokers, not good. Lots of dust on tables from the thatched roof. Seemed to close very early.

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

This is a fun atmosphere. It is known for its Monkey La La drink, but I did not have one with lunch!

The food is very good here. We had the special tacos of the day and they were tasty.

Our server was friendly and professional.

“Great food, people and view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

We ate here while visitng the island and definitely would come back again. Wish we had one at home! The view is absolutely beautiful! The food is exceptional, we all ordered something different and had no complaints. The staff is friendly and welcoming all the way from the owner to each server, They all made sure we had a good experience, they posed for pictures and acted like family.

“Try the lionfish tacos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

We tried to eat each meal during our trip at a different restaurant every time so we'd get a wider experience, but Monkey Island was so good we had to come back a second time. Very good service, great location and view, and my wife loved the nachos! The lionfish tacos are definitely worth ordering. They're not only great, but it's nice knowing you're helping to rid the Caribbean of a nuisance. Try to get Andres as a waiter. Best waiter there and one of the nicest people we met on the whole trip!

“Great food, Great People, Great location, Great prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is the real feel that one looks for in a beach bar restaurant. Andy and his staff go the extra mile to make your dinning experience fun and pleasurable. Wonderful location with a wonderful view of the bay.
