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.

“Fun atmosphere, great food, friendly people”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Over the course of the month in Honduras we must have eaten here over 10 times. Almost every night is a party. From the amazing smoked chicken at $1 taco Tuesday's to the ever frequent live music to the incredibly friendly and attentive service-this place is a gem. Definitely also recommend the new half off nachos on Mondays and smoked chicken wings on Wednesdays. If you wanna order off the menu the lionfish fajitas are amazing. They take credit card and are very accommodating with large groups.

“Best drinks and food on the island”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

Just went back while on a cruise and all is business as usual. Food is great best shrimp on the island. Adam keeps the bar running smooth while John John makes the kitchen properly tooling them big plates of seafood out. There has been some renovation and I like it better much room for this place to grow right on the beach......

“Ate here twice - food and atmosphere are fantastic”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Our group of 9, kids and adults, ate here twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals included BBQ items and delicious sides like coconut beans and rice. The daily specials are very good. Great, friendly service.

“No Monkeying Around Here”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Great atmosphere. Always something on special (food and drink). We were there for "Taco Tuesday". $1 each (chicken or beef).I would add a few more TVs though if I were them (you know ... for us crazy Americans).

“Tourists Be Here”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Stopped in for lunch while we were exploring the West End. Very friendly staff and a good selection of drinks and food. This is in the middle of tourist central, so it can get crowded and noisy; but, it is fine if you're on vacation.
