Roatan Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Roatan

January 25, 2018 Chanda Heide

The best way to cap off a day of pristine Roatán reef diving and heart-pumping adventure is to sip a sunset cocktail by the beach. From zip-lining to deep-sea fishing to exploring the military-protected archipelago of Cayos Cochinos, the Honduran island is a playground for lovers of water sports and ecotourism. Landlubbers will adore the Carambola botanical gardens, touring the Stone Castle Cameo Factory, or exploring the beaches on horseback.

History JavaVine was purchased as a turn-key business on April 4th 2011, when it had previously been operating for 4 years as the Cool Beans Coffee House. The new owners, Wyonna & Quentin (with their now infamous schnauzer Jasper, who can be seen almost daily swimming in the ocean along West Bay Beach), finished a 3 1/2 week renovation in February 2012, and re-opened with a brand new look, an expanded menu, and extended hours to include a cool new Wine Bar & Lounge with light Tapas, in a chill, relaxed environment with soothing tunes. It was at that time the coffee shop became known as JavaVine Cafe & Wine Bar!

Stopped in here for an afternoon coffee and I’ll surely be back again this trip. The iced latte with soy milk was very good and the Java Lala was awesome (coffee-infused version of the alcoholic Monkey Lala). There seemed to be great pastry/food items as well but I wasn’t hungry. The staff here were friendly. If you’re vegan / dairy free they have non dairy options!

Blue Bahia Beach Grill is located right on the water in Sandy Bay. You can watch a glorious sunset while having a super cold Salvavida beer. The menu is quite extensive, but I opted for the seafood section, and was not disappointed. The ceviche is very good, and the whole fried fish is wonderful. The service was very attentive. I ate there 3 times in the course of 5 days. It's great!

We returned 3 years later and the food is still some of the best on the island. The half chicken with sides was delicious. Save room for dessert or take it to go. Their sides are really unique and all homemade. Best value deal in West End.

This place is right above Westend Divers. We ate there often and were never disappointed. Open for breakfast and lunch. Try their Sangria Sunday’s. Think that’s the only time they are open for supper. They have the best view of the whole street as they are on the second storey!

We walked to this restaurant after Reading great reviews. We stayed at Media Luna resort and the walk was just under an hour. We were met by amazing views from the deck. Our thirst was quenched by the Honduran beer Imperial. I ordered fish and my husband Jerk Chicken. Both were delightfully spicy and the quanties were so bountiful we couldn't finish. Our bill was less than $30! Unbelievable! Definitely worth the walk!
