The food was good. They have a vegetable soup that was a good break from baleadas, however it was a little bland for my taste. Although the place looks like a fast food place, we had to wait almost an hour for our food (there were only 7 other people there at the time). The place appears to be run by a wife/husband team. Their English wasn't very good (surprising for Utila - where nearly everyone speaks English), so be prepared to use your spanish language skills!
The food was alright (I had a past alfredo dish that was very filling and tasty), however the highlight of this place is the view! You walk out on a pier over the water. The restaurant is at the end of the pier and has seating in shade and outside. They even have a second story that is fun!
Favorite Dish: Don't go for the food - Go for the view! :-)
The locals on Utila thrive on tourism and are willing to accommodate vegetarian needs. Because most of the food is made to order, they can make it to suit your dietary needs. No problems in Utila! :-)
Favorite Dish: You'll never starve with the baleadas sin carne around! YUMMY! :-)
It always seems that my favorite place to get local food is on the street! Utila is no exception! These women work from dusk through darkness making baleadas all day long. You can get about 3 baleadas for a U.S. dollar. SUPER cheap and delicious! Be sure to put plenty of the local hot sauce on the baleadas to spice them up! YUM!
Favorite Dish: Baleadas! You can get them "con carne" or "sin carne" (with or without meat). My husband devoured the baleadas con carne; I had the baleadas sin carne. Either way it was delicious! :-)
The Seven Seas Restaurant was one of our favorite places. It definitely isn't glamourous (it is packed with a bunch of white plastic chairs), however the food is excellent and the owners are hospitable. We enjoyed saying "hello" (or "Buenas!") to the older gentleman who sits outside. They are one of the restaurant that keeps the kitchen open a little later than the rest of the places on the island (to about 9:30 p.m.).
Favorite Dish: They have the absolute BEST baleadas on the island! Drinks are nice and cold and they have the most AWESOME banana bread I have ever eaten!
