We had eaten here before and had a great meal. My husband wanted conch and had it before and it was good. This time it was cold and tough. My friend and I ordered grilled fish which was also cold as was our rice and the beans were just a glob of black paste. The chips were greasy and the... More

Stop for a drink to watch the sunset with your toes in the sand-Go elsewhere for your dinner-Lobster tails where served at room temperature as where the sparse side dishes. Grilled chicken was dry and tasteless. The bathrooms were filthy.

This is in a beautiful location on the northwest side. Really nice that they have tables where you can put your feet in the sand while you eat or drink. In this area, we had better food at Muelle 7 and Bally Hoo though.

Was recommended to us by concierge. We really enjoyed the beach atmosphere with music and delicious seafood. Service was friendly. Located perfectly in downtown. Will definitely return again.

This being our first meal on Isla, it is definitely memorable...Great dining with toes in the sand, live music in the background and the best Margaritas. This place is full of locals so you know you are getting the real deal. Food was great, service was great and all quite affordable. Will be dreaming of the day I can go... More

Margaritas and cerviche to start and our favorites are grilled calamari and the awesome whole fish for the entrees. Favorite spot, of many... More

Located on beach in town, very good ceviche pulpo, excellent guacamole, well prepared whole red snapper. Try the coconut juice (natural) fresh from a tree, still in the outer shell - served with a straw. Serves locals and people from sailboats docked adjacent torestaurant

My husband and I stopped for grilled fish, which is an island specailty. It was served quickly-which rarely happens, that shold have been our first clue. I was cold with poor flavor. When asked how our food was told the waiter and nothing was done. Will never eat here again.

Been to Mininos several times. Love the fried fish and ceviche. Fish is always fresh since this is a fishermen restaurant. Right by the beautiful Playa norte. This is a must if you wamt fresh delicious seafood
