Best places for eating in / out in Roatan Honduras

Here is a list of best places for eating in / out in Roatan Honduras. From quality island cooking to authentic Indian plates, West End offers a wonderful dining selection to satisfy every taste and budget. West End also has a popular bar scene, where it usually starts at Sundowners beach bar and continues down the road into the night.


On the way from the airport or the ferry to the West side of the island, you will drive past Eldon’s and Plaza Mar, both are big supermarkets where you will be able to pick up most of the items you require for your stay. Both supermarkets are well stocked with plenty of US and local produce.

In West End, you can also find smaller grocery stores and convenience to pick up basic items. On the north end of Half Moon Bay, you will find Woody’s groceries (closed Saturdays) next to Argentinian Grill. Coconut Tree Mini Super is next to the dive shop and Mini super Jackson is next to the Baptist Church.


Fruit and vegetables are available for sale from various stands and pick up trucks parked along the West End main road. You can also buy shrimp and fish from the truck with the white coolers in the back (look for it near Mini super Jackson) or from Alice’s place opposite the yellow Beach House. Look out for the Blue Harbor Plantation truck for local hydroponically grown salads and herbs (also available for sale in various groceries).


If you prefer not to have to cook on vacation then here are some of our favorite restaurant recommendations.


Roatan Oasis

Just up the hill above West End, Rated Number 1 on Tripadvisor for good reason. Roatan Oasis is nestled in the tree tops with a nice pool and is open for dinner from 5pm Monday through Friday. Their dynamic menu has a selection of freshly made foods from around the globe.  It is an excellent choice for vegetarians and people with food allergies since they make all their food onsite even the pasta. They have excellent curries, ribs and steaks as well as very innovative cocktails. It is a 5 minute walk from the dive shop.


This is one of our favorites, just around the corner from the dive shop, home made pasta served with all fresh ingredients, yummy desserts and BYOB. Reservations strongly advised. Weekly specials.

Keith’s Barbeque

Difficult to beat the value that is on Keith’s barbeque plates, serving daily chicken, pork and fresh fish if he has it. Local style fixings are $5 a plate and they are always fresh, always good. If there is a fruit tree in season Keith will have the fresh juice ready made in bottles for a small fee. Check to see if he has Tuna. Yum!

Rotisserie Chicken

Always great value for money, Dola and her army of helpers make the best rotisserie chicken ‘n’ fixins on the island.  For only USD 6 you can get full on a quarter chicken and two sides.  Don’t forget the delicious desert menu…YUM!  Always a hit with locals and tourists alike.  Open for dinner, closed sundays, arrive early to avoid a wait.

Sundowners Beach Bar

One of the best beach bars on the island, Sundowners is the place to be for sunset drinks, offering great bar food, burgers, nachos, sandwiches, and my favorite, spicy, crispy chicken wrap with avocado and bacon. Hmmmm.  Ask to try their signature cocktail “The Monkey Lala” – you won’t be disappointed.  Open 7 days til 10pm, BBQ on Sundays. Live music on various nights.

The Elephant Thai Restaurant

Always a must when in Roatan, this place serves up authentic Thai dishes in a romantic setting overlooking the Caribbean waters. The delicate flavors of the spices and sauces combined with the views, make for a wonderful dining experience. They are open for lunch and dinner.

Fresh Bakery

Fernando’s fresh baked goods are delicious. He’s open for breakfast and lunch. He offers tasty sandwiches, bagels and soups and hot lunches for the cooler rainy days. He will also deliver to West end. Closed Sundays.

Cafe Escondido

A great little hangout with a great ocean view, the kitchen cooks up daily specials and Asian-flavoured favourites like Spicy Chicken Cashew and Singapore Noodles. Great place for a leisurely brunch, or join them for sunset at Sangria Sundays DJ set.  Open for breakfast/lunch and events by request, closed Tuesdays.

Drunken Sailor

Delicious pizza restaurant in the heart of West End. Instead of a standard round pizza they make pizza by the yard at a great price. Try their Calzone too. Closed Sunday, Monday.

Juniors Patio Pizza

Juniors pizzas are delicious, reservation only as he can get busy. He caters for large groups and has a lovely atmospheric setting in his back yard. Located just up from Pazzo!
