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.

“Delicious! Luis is the man”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

A very hyper, excited and friendly guy named Luis showed us their 'specials' which were either lobster/rib eye, lobster/some fish, red snapper, grouper. We were interested and promised him we would eat there. He said we would get a free chicken soup or green salad. He seemed really excited about it too. The lobster there is.... Amazing. It is so delicious. He said that it is cooked in white wine/garlic something like that. We got the surf and turf the first time which included veggies, baked potato, lobster, rib eye steak, rice. It was really good but the steak wasn't something so amazing that we would get it again. For the price of I think around $20 for all of that- it's a good deal. The second time we went, we just wanted the lobster. 129 pesos (around $10) for the amazing lobster, veggies, rice. Also got chips and beans for free. The drinks were also 2x1 at around 85 pesos. Definitely worth eating here! I don't know how Luis does it but somehow he gets a lot of customers to eat there with his funny, talkative and loud personality! If you are walking down that street you will definitely not miss this restaurant - Luis will catch you!

“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.
