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.

“LOOOOOVE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

WOW! We LOVED this place, and I cannot say enough good things about it! Hugo is the best bartender ever! Awesome cocktails made with fresh ingredients, and super friendly service! The managers are also awesome and super friendly. The food is great. The bar sits just across the street from the beach. You can't see the sunset from here, but make sure you stop in for drinks and/or dinner. It's worth it! My favorite bar in Roatan, for sure!

“Great Times @ Monkey Island !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

This is a belated review, but it's better late than never.

Me and buddy stayed in Roatan a few months ago for some rest and relaxation.
We caught a Bluefin Tuna during our stay and the bar manager Adam allowed us to cook our freshly caught fish at the restaurant. Not only was he and the staff very accomodating, but our fish, sides, and mixed drinks that came along with it were great....Oh!! and the atmosphere was great as well.
I highly recommend Monkey Island to anyone that stays on the island, tourist or local.
