We had several shrimp dishes, including the stuffed shrimp which were delicious! Enjoy a delicious, reasonably priced meal right by the water! The service was very good, and the restrooms were clean. We also appreciated that there was not loud music blasting throughout dinner, which we found to be quite common in the Isla restaurants.

I truly enjoyed my meal at this sea side restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere and great staff. I had nachos, lobster, flan and a fresh coconut for about $32.00. I will be going back in December.

We got off the ferry and stumbled into this restaurant and was presently surprised! We ordered guacamole first and the portion was big and satisfying. We then ordered the fish soup and decided to split a fried fish. Thankfully we did because the fish was huge and fresh.. They actually brought out three different fresh fish for us to choose...

Wandered in here as soon as we dropped off our bags at our casa. Though it was a bit of a risk being so close to the ferry terminal, but we ended up going back 3 times. Ceviche serve was huge and delicious, husband was very happy with his fish tacos. We personally witnessed the fresh fish coming into the... More

Enjoyed the paella! Full of seafood, and delicious. Good marina waterfront atmosphere. Fried shrimp dinner was also a great meal. Order a Sol Beer and you're set to enjoy!

We were so looking forward to eating here, especially after a very long, stressful day of travel. The place had only changed a little in the five years since our last visit. That was a relief! We sat under the roof (already it was too warm for us to sit outside) and savored a beer and their tortilla chips &... More
