Believe or not, it is not easy to find fish in San Andres. Locals love fast food. The Cooperativa is by far the best typical restaurant in the island, prices have gone up but still it is the best deal.

If you want to eat the absolute best fried fish in the island, this is the place to go. Having said that, keep in mind this is a place where service might be a bit slow (specially during busy hours) but so worth the wait if you are into seafood at local hangouts. Do not expect white glove treatment or... More

Having visited the excellent fish co-operative restaurant on Isla Providencia we looked forward to eating at this one in San Andres. What a disappointment. One of us asked for Shrimp Ceviche and got shrimp in cold sauce - the same sauce that another of our party got [warm] on his conch creole. The seafood rice looked and tasted as though... More

The place is in open air but with a roof and nice views of the beach. The food takes a while to come because every dish is prepared freshly from the fishing of the day.
