Paya Bay is located way east...
Paya Bay is located way east on the island. The food is very good, and the owners are kind. The sunset view is very nice, and you can go down and watch the waves break on the rocks in the evening. Highly recommended.
Favorite Dish: Coconut Cream Pie
Romeo's and Gio's I'll class...
Romeo's and Gio's I'll class together, because they are both the same, pretty much. The food is good at both, better at Romeo's sometimes, sometimes better at Gio's. I think they're brothers. Anyway, highly recommmended.
The owner, Giovanni Silvestri will take good care of you. Gio's crab dinner is a must-get!
I might also note that Romeo's has live music at times and classical music every Saturday night.
Fat Tuesday: Drinks at Fat Tuesday
We didn't eat here because we headed to the city of Coxen Hole instead and taste the local home-cooked Honduran meals.
I saw a lot of tourists ate here and some just dropped by to buy cold drinks.

Bananarama Dive Resort: Thirsty Turtle Bar: Coconut Shrimp, BBQ Ribs, Cold Beer
Bananarama has a small dive resort/restaurant located on West Bay Beach. The beach is likely one of (if not the) best beach on the island with fantastic views of the turquoise water. The large deck area (i.e., the restaurant) hovers over the beach, giving you a clear view of the water and the comings/goings of dive boats.
We dropped in at around 3pm for lunch and sat on the patio until 10pm (ate dinner there too). The management didn't seem to mind and the waitresses were very nice. It happened to be at Bananarama for karaoke night, too. (Thursdays) It was entertaining. 2011
We have previously dropped in for the Christmas buffet ($18-). 2009
It's a very active beach; cruise ships deposit hundreds (if not thousands) of people here many times a week. However, they all head back to the boats by 4pm, leaving plenty of room for locals and non-cruising visitors to sit and grab some great grub.
I understand (2011) that the resort is for sale. I hope whoever buys it keeps the grub and the atmosphere the same.
Favorite Dish: Coconut shrimp. I'm a huge fan. It's crispy, delicious, not greasy and totally fresh. Plus when it's served with a few cold cervezas.... I like Port Royal or Barena (sort of like Corona and good with lime). When we visited there happened to be a drink special on both. :D The dinner special that night was BBQ Ribs; they were awesome too!
A few years ago (2009) we walked up the beach after a BAD Christmas buffet (resort) intending to have a drink and some "real" food at Bananarama. Lo, they had a Christmas buffet featuring smoked turkey, roasted turkey, 3 kinds of stuffing, mashed and sweet potatoes, gravy and carrots (the carrots on Roatan are amazing, by the way). It was fantastic and amazing and worth every penny!
Shark Cave Pizzeria: Great Pizza
Located on the beach road iin west end. Geat pizza and very ample servings. Don't order a 2nd portion until you've seen the frirst one!
Favorite Dish: I tried 5 different varities during my stay and they were all good.
Vintage Pearl: Three Courses of Heaven
My husband and I visited this restaurant 3 times during our stay. The menu changes nightly and is a three course enu with soup or salad, appetizer and main dish. The atmosphere is romantic, with no shoes allowed and candles on the tables. There is seating inside and out.
Favorite Dish: I had lobster bisque that was liquid lobster heaven, a tomato and ginger soup that was an interesting blend of flavors and so fresh. Shrimp bathed in a warm creamy garlic sauce was the best seafood dish I have ever had. The lobster was succulent, if they have it on the menu the night you are there get it!! They didn't have it our last night and we were disappointed, but glad we had indulged previous nights. The Kobe Beef offered one evening was expertly cooked and the tuna my husband had one evening was perfection!

Bite on the Beach: Great Deck
A great deck is the main appeal of this place. The menu is small with offerings of pasta, chicken, thai dishes and seafood.
Favorite Dish: I had the Thai Chicken, it was okay. The pesto pasta looked good....
Don't miss the eels that reside over the deck. At night they have lights on them and we saw them feeding them chicken bones!
Las Rocas: West Bay Lunch
We did not dine here for dinner, but had pizzas for lunch. The pies were $10-14 per pizza and the only place to get pizza on West Bay as of 2010. They only serve them for lunch!
The patio is right on the water and the bar has swings instead of stools!

Ronny's Barefeet: Fresh fish of the day
Probably this is the best restaurant in Roatan island, although is the only one that I visited, but according to the people I talked with, must be the número uno.
Favorite Dish: Fresh fish, of course, you even see how that catch the fish.

Street-side vendor booth: Don't miss the fresh corn!
Bite down into salted, lime-sprinkled corn roasted on the side of Roatan's only road. The grill kills any bad stuff, leaving you with good corn. Cheap, too (only about 15 lempiras)
