Reviewed 9 April 2018

The 9 of us ate here for dinner 4 times, and every meal was amazing. They were very accommodating for our large party; we were either seated immediately or after a 15-30 minute wait on the beach or in the outside bar as were waited for two tables to open up. We all cycled through Pili's 3 specials, which were steak, pasta, or fish on every night. ALL three specials were prepared differently each night and were al delicious! There was a lot of plate sharing among us! Please note that it's cash only (dollars or córdobas)

We came here for a late night drink and then again for lunch, and both times we were pleasantly surprised. At the late night, we were served beers and smoothies quickly. For the lunch, the food takes a while (20 minutes probably) but it is very fresh and tasty. Plus, it’s right on the beach and the view is incredible. Also, the bathrooms are clean!!

We ordered a goat cheese salad, Sicilian Bruschetta, shrimp tomato appetites. The main course beef tenderloin. Every thing serves fine, passion service, after twenty hours on plane, delicious food made my day.

Exclusive - it should be very clear that this restaurant is intended ONLY for Iguana guests. After reading amazing reviews, we drove from Grenada for fish tacos on the beach. Unfortunately, we were told that we could not enter to eat, we could come back in 3 hours for dinner. Perhaps they were worried that we'd mar their perfect beach view?

It was an incredibly convoluted experience trying to reserve a seating at Pili's. Despite talking with the owners on the phone several times, as well as negotiating entry into the gated Hacienda Iguana community, we were told that we could not dine as Pili feared we would bring in surfers. We missed out on what looks to be delicious food from pictures; however, considering the many amazing food offerings in this country, I'm more happy to support other local restaurants as opposed to this more oppressive, expatriate-golfer, and esoteric establishment. I'm sure the bourgeoisie will enjoy, as I no longer care to!
