On the second occation the power went out as we were ordering dinner. They forgot to pay the power bill. They claimed it would be back on shortly, we went elseware and have... More

This was one of the first restaurants we visited in Utila. It was OK - there was a wide choice on the menu and the service was fine. I can't actually remember what I ate though, so clearly it wasn't great enough to make an impression! I'll probably go back, it was average for Utila.

The main dish was good - I had the spinach and ricotta ravioli, if I remember correctly. I had wanted the gargonzola and walnut pasta, with the butter sauce, but it was unavailable. My sister also tried ordering something that was not available. As others have said, this seems to be something that happens here frequently. We were a bit... More

Had ravioli with buttter sauce and bruschetta for a starter. My friends had fish that they enjoyed. Altough they didn't have Coke and the restaurant was not able to make rum and coke - odd... but that's Utila...

The restaurant is upstairs in a building off of the main street in town, with a balcony overlooking the street. Not much of a view, but it is nice to get above street level. Some reviewers have reported poor service but in my two visits (dinner) I did not notice this. Service may not be as attentive as in North... More

Food was ok. Not great. Not terrible. Young folks hangout and trying for a romantic atmosphere with street noise and mosquitos. Expensive and LOUSY service !

I requested the lasagne but was told 'we don't have it' well it would have been helpful to tell us when the menu's were given, not after choosing something that wasn't available. The waitress was miserable and gave me dirty cutlery. The food was actually quite good (gnocchi and penne pasta) but the lack of service and atmosphere outweighed this.... More

Good food, they make their own pastas. The balcony is overlooking the main street and it's a bit noisy. The 3 times we were there, the same Pink Floyd reccords were playing, I like Pink Floyd but not while having a romantic dinner with my loved one

Food here is good, but they often run out of things. I had been looking forward to a proper lasagna for a long time, but when I got there, they told me that they didn't have it, and that they most likely wouldn't get the lasagna plates anytime soon. Downer. When me and my friend both settled for the pork... More
