“Fun time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

My group of 10 really enjoyed this bar / restaurant. The atmosphere is not too bad. There was one very "interesting" guy at the bar that wasted no time striking up a conversation (proposition) with one of our young ladies, but he was harmless, at least I hope he is. The food was good, and plenty of it, the value was exceptional.

“Great Drinks!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

What a great place to have drinks. The Bartender poured great drinks and everyone there were very friendly. They make their own type of Kahlua which was very tasty. They make a great shot drink with their Kahlua and vodka called "Monkey Balls". That is a must shot to have.

“A Must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

They had specials going everyday that we walked by. We had the pork chop, which was huge and tender, and their fish special. We went back a few times for drinks on the upper deck too. No matter when we stopped by there were always friendly folks at the bar.

“Best place on the island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Great place to have lunch or dinner. Most important the kitchen is clean!! Usually specials if you eat there several times a week there is variety. The fish dishes always fresh. People are friendly. You will see divers hanging out at the end of the day. Ask about some of their killer desserts--made right there. I had not been on Utila for 2 years and Sharon, the owner, remembered me. Linda is always great too.

“Really nice place and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Really good food and tasty. The lemmonade was natural even though it was pink!, One of the best places to eat in the island, the lady that took the order and the one that brought it to the table were very kind,, always with a smile.
The music was nice and different than the one in the rest of the bars and restaurants and, of course, eating by the sea, was great!
