I've been going to Ooloonthoo for special occasions for years, with co-workers, family and for romantic dinners. Soden and Paul never disappoint! The setting is spacious and comfortable, the food is beyond excellent, and we have our own menu favourites. I would actually eat everything on the menu every time, if it were physically possible! In all the years we've... More

We love this place so much! We first came to Oolonthoo two years ago for my birthday and have been there many times since then. They offer two course meals, and they have four appetizer options and around six or seven entree options. Everything is carefully prepared, delicious and it's such a special experience. It's by reservation only and they... More

Rarely do I review restaurants given how varied we find individual tastes even among our closest friends. But I am compelled to highlight another wonderful experience we recently enjoyed at Ooloonthoo in Roatan, Honduras. The chef, Paul James, and his wife Soden own the establishment, and the two of them run the operation with no additional help. What you get... More

We had the pleasure of dining at this beautiful restaurant, owned and solely run by Soden and Paul James, and what an amazing culinary experience! From 5 + star appetizers and entrees, to incredible tastebud tantalizing desert, it was by far the best Indian food we have ever had! Anyone visiting Roatan should not miss the opportunity to dine in... More

My brother and his girlfriend had arrived a few days prior to the rest of our group and had a fabulous dinner at Ooloonthoo so recommended it to our group. We emailed with Soden to set up a family style dinner that would accommodate our group of 12 people (and varying dietary restrictions)! We ended up being the only group... More

I had read the reviews of this spot and had booked a dinner for four before I ever landed on the island. Yes this is a pricey dinner on a relatively cheap island but the food, service, and outdoor seating were all excellent. If you want a special night out while on the island book in advance and savor the... More

TL;DR: For those who don't read the rest of the review, I strongly recommend eating here at least once while on Roatan. If you enjoy good food, service and a beautiful environment, you will enjoy Ooloonthoo. I was initially surprised to find an Indian restaurant on Roatan, let alone one that was so highly rated. However, my surprise quickly turned... More

Ok, so I am Indian and visited Ooloonthoo with a group of friends, who are also Indian. Clearly, we were going in with high expectations. I have say, without question, that the four of us walked away from the best Indian food that we had ever had, outside of our mother's kitchens. Everything was perfectly balanced and flavorful, without being... More

We ate at Ooloonthoo on our recent visit to Roatan. This is a husband/wife team that used to own a restuarant in West Bay and decided to move their restuarant to their home. They basically serve two tables a night and it is by reservation only. The menu is fixed price and includes appetizer and entre. There are about 5-6... More

We went to Ooloonthoo as two couples from our resort hotel. We expected great authentic Indian cuisine and that is exactly what we got. The setting is beautiful and everything was described perfectly. Butter Chicken, Shrimp, Lamb, and Curry Beef were delightfully delicious. What a truly great meal, and something so different from what were had been having--that it was... More
