Description: Situated on Hidalgo Avenue, Isla’s main street, Fayne's offers a relaxed and friendly environment to listen to live guitar music during your dinner. The evening’s party begins at 10:30pm with The Band with No Name, the best of American and Latino music as well as Caribbean rhythms. This lively and fun atmosphere is what has made Fayne's an island favorite since 2001. Year after year we welcome our friends who visit us and make Fayne's a unique place. Fayne's casual concept includes an extensive liquor bar and a menu where Mexican and Caribbean cuisine is respected for the original recipes, steaks and fresh seafood obtained from local fishermen.

“Best Lobster”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

I don't know why this place isn't in the top 10!! This was our second visit for lobster and we weren't disappointed. Perfectly grilled lobster with fresh garlic butter, potatoes, salad & steamed veggies. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!!! Thanks Luis

“Unexpected surprise on Hildago!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We have passed by Fayne's several times on our trips tp Isla, it kind of struck us as more bar than a restaurant although now I'm not sure why. One night after listening to Luis's very discriptive and animated daily specials we decided o give it a try. So glad we did... I had the grouper in a delicious sauce that I can't remember the name of, it came with really tasty grilled vegetables and baked potato. My husband decide to go for the filet it came ith the same sides as mine and was grilled on the BBQ set up next to our table. He enjoyed it so much that we went back a week later for another one. The service was good and prices were fair. Entertainment later that evening was really good and the crowd in the street out front were all having a great time.
