Great food at decent prices. Staff is very friendly. We went for lunch and the restaurant was packed - regardless, food was served fairly quickly. Definitely my favorite place to eat in Tela!

I was a bit disappointed in Northern Lights, perhaps because it had been so highly recommended by a Honduran acquaintance. The night I ate there, I was the only customer, which probably should have been a clue. I ordered the grilled fish filet, which came with a salad, rice, and fries. The salad was very good (large and extraordinarily fresh).... More

This is great restaurant with fresh and plentiful seafood. The back room was large enough, but could have used another fan or two.

We were 5 people visiting the place, we order Fried Fish and Conch Soup. The quality of the Fish was very good but the Soup, not really what we expected. Other servers came asking to other tables who order the Soups to start, our server was sent somewhere else. This used to be a very good restaurant with very good... More

Food was expensive, it wasn't so good. Poor quality, it used to be good five years ago. Staff was rude and careless.

the food isn't as expected. It used to be a good restaurant but it has since fallen. The staff are unfriendly and unwilling whilst the quality of food isn't great. All in all not recommended

All I know about Luces del Norte is that their seafood soup (I ordered the 'Princesa', which was a pretty good-sized bowl) is probably the most delicious soup I've had in my entire life. I'm sure their other food is great, too, but I'd go back for their soup alone in a heartbeat - delicious!

We popped in and had a couple of cervezas and the "famous seafood soup" - well let me say it is famous for a reason. It could quite possibly be the best soup I have ever had in my life. Seriously. If you are in the area it is a must.

We love this laid back, quirky restaurant. The smaller "Princess" sea soup was more than enough for my evening meal and was just as delicious as I remembered, filled with conch, shrimp, crab, and fish, as well as carrots, onions and yucca in an awesome coconut broth. My husband's grilled fish was outstanding, as well. I can't wait to go... More

Just a walk away from the beach Northern Lights Restaurant is the place to be if you want to taste the caribbean cuisine while reading a book offered by our new library. Surrounded by an enchanting garden, hammocks and the best fruits de mer on town this makes it the perennial favorite.
