Roatan restaurants

Restaurants

Roatan restaurants offer a variety of cuisines, from island dishes to international foods. Island dishes may include seafood, rice and beans mixed together, fried or boiled plantains, and coleslaw. Island flavored meat is often prepared in an oily sauce with mutton pepper.

Seafood is widely available in the island's restaurants. Coconut shrimp is highly recommended. Conch soup is delicious, and gives you a taste of the island's cuisine. Steak lovers, make sure the steak is flown in from the US. Honduran beef is not aged the same way that USDA choice beef is aged.

Restaurants on Roatan vary drastically in price, quality, and nationality of cuisine. This guide is intended to help you find what suits your palate. Enjoy your meal!

Argentinian Grill West End Argentinian Grill restaurant rating Argentinian Grill service Argentinian Grill food selection
Argentinian barbeque, chicken, beef, pork, seafood, hamburgers, sandwiches.
Argentinian Grill of RoatanArgentinian Grill of Roatan A mixed review. We had the Sunday barbeque special for L500, which serves two people. The fries were fried in old oil and the pork tasted freezer burnt, but the beef was excellent. The chicken was very tender. Plenty of salad for two. A little problem on the bill - the conversion to dollars gave a total of 4 cents over the even dollar amount, so the lady rounded up 96 cents to the next dollar. Seating under a roof, but open air with a sea view. The wifi was for resort guests only, not restaurant patrons. 2011-04-15

Pisco y Nazca West End Pisco y Nazca restaurant rating Pisco y Nazca service Pisco y Nazca food selection 10-25
Peruvian - seafood, lamb, steak, pork, chicken.
This is fine dining at a reasonable price. We shared a crab appetizer, a lamb special of the day and a desert. All were well prepared and presented. We had lamb enough to take some home. The restaurant, including the bathrooms, was spotless.

Nice decor. Delicious bread for appetizers, but too small. The steak had a chili flavor but was very good. The shrimp and fish were excellent. A 15% tip was automatically added. I prefer to decide the tip myself. Very friendly proprietor.

It's worth the drive to get something different and delicious. 2012-12-22

Hungry Kiwi of RoatanThe Kiwi is spotlessly clean, the kitchen is visible from the dining room. There is a choice of inside seating with air conditioning or on the patio with a small view of the sea. For those of us who love lamb and well prepared beef, The Kiwi is well worth a visit. The prices and portions are good and its one of the few places on the island with a reduced price lunch menu. Free Wifi is available. You can call for the list of the specials that change almost every day. 2445 3295 2011-10-15

Gio's Flowers Bay Gio's restaurant rating Gio's service Gio's food selection 10-38
Seafood.
Gio's of RoatanGio's, one of the island's best up-scale restaurants, has recently opened in a new location. They are on the Southern shore, closer to West Bay and West End. You will enjoy great breezes and nice views. The afternoon we were there we saw two cruise ships go by. But, it's all about the food. Most visitors come for the crab. The warm water crab has a fairly thick shell so you will use the mallets and probably make a bit of a mess, but it's worth it. Also try the calamari and shrimp dishes, they're great. My favorite is the calamari a la palancha. Cooked on the grill with pickled ginger on the side. Be sure and order extra garlic bread. The portions are generous and you will have a choice of several ways of preparing the dishes. They are closed Mondays. Open 10 am - 3pm and again at 5pm to 10 pm.

Frenchy's 44 French Cay Frenchy's 44 restaurant rating Frenchy's 44 service Frenchy's 44 food selection 12-28
Pasta, island style, lobster, steak, sandwiches.
Frenchy's 44 of RoatanFrenchy's 44 of RoatanFrenchy's 44 is a new restaurant just East of French Harbour on the road to the Iguana Farm. Kave, the owner, was there to greet us. We asked about the number 44 and were told it's his lucky number. The setting is exactly what you would want for an island style restaurant. The main dining area is a large deck over the sea with excellent breezes. The views are spectacular. The restaurant is done island style sprinkled with interesting antiques, including a crystal chandelier handing from the thatch roof. You can also take their launch out to a private island and enjoy a beautiful white sandy beach and a host of water toys, parrots and monkeys. The staff was very well trained; all had name tags on their matching shirts. The presentation of the food was beautiful and very appetizing.

The portions were generous and the prices very reasonable. Kids menu at $3. Appetizers $3-$8. Sandwiches $7-$8, entrees $12-$28 and deserts all at $3. There is something for every one and every budget. We went for lunch and had a quesadilla and fish tempura appetizer then a fish sandwich anda steak sandwich. We shared a Coconut Flan for desert. They have a wide choice of dinner entrees from pasta to interesting island style chicken dishes, fresh lobster and steaks. They usually have daily specials but not on the day we visited. We were looking forward to eating there, as Carl, chef from The View, is doing the cooking. We have always found his food to be outstanding. Unfortunately the taste of our choices was our only dissatisfaction. The four items we tried were all prepared properly but three out of four of the items we tried were bland and the steak sandwich very tough. Kave's attention to detail is evident everywhere. Frenchy's has only been open for about a month and we will give it another try a bit later. We know Carl can do better. 2011-11-15

Cal's of RoatanThe building is not complete but what is done is very comfortable. Nine tables below, six on the main floor and two in the garden. Outstanding views, refreshing breezes and excellent food at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for? Carl, the chef, was previously at The View, one of our favorite restaurants. We enjoyed quesadillas and chicken wing appetizers priced at about $7. Carl's signature Mahi-Mahi fillet with lime cream sauce at $11 was outstanding. We also tried the 10 oz. beef, perfectly prepared and very tender. All entrees served with fresh vegetables and potatoes. Deserts at $3 included Island Lime Pie and Banana cake with raisons. 2012-03-15
