Located on beach in town, very good ceviche pulpo, excellent guacamole, well prepared whole red snapper. Try the coconut juice (natural) fresh from a tree, still in the outer shell - served with a straw. Serves locals and people from sailboats docked adjacent torestaurant

My husband and I stopped for grilled fish, which is an island specailty. It was served quickly-which rarely happens, that shold have been our first clue. I was cold with poor flavor. When asked how our food was told the waiter and nothing was done. Will never eat here again.

Been to Mininos several times. Love the fried fish and ceviche. Fish is always fresh since this is a fishermen restaurant. Right by the beautiful Playa norte. This is a must if you wamt fresh delicious seafood

I cannot write an unbiased review because my husband and I love this unassuming restaurant on the beach. Once you are in love, you forgive the place for its foibles and nuances. I am quite aware it is not trendy, or pretty (although they have renovated nicely a second floor in the last couple of years), or even consistent with... More

I always come back to this restaurant visiting the island, the food is fresh and plentiful and pricing is reasonable. I have had the fresh catch of the day which was delicious. Most recently I had the fried shrimp which was lightly breaded and cooked to perfection. The side dishes were a wonderful addition to the meal.

Mininos is located on the sandy beach with a nice Caribbean feeling. We ordered Margaritas on the rocks, and as usual, they were large and great tasting at just 80 pesos. I squeezed down a little more lime juice from wedges provided, but that is just personal taste. These Margaritas are good and 80 pesos is what other places charge... More

Really cheap food and drinks on the beach. I had the fish tacos and was not overly impressed with them. Guacamole was excellent though.
