So disappointing. The place is right on the beach which is the only redeeming quality. I am reviewing the restaurant only, not the B & B. The service was brutal. The food does not look like the pictures they posted on the Internet. False advertising. The poutin, which is allegedly their specialty, was made with freezer burned frozen French fries. The nachos were disgusting & the burgers were almost inedible. Because of your location, you COULD be great, but because you put so little effort into making good tasting food I can tell you that we will never come back.

Hello Paul

I'm really sorry to hear your comment about the restaurant and I take note of that. We will try to correct the situation but remember something. We're living in a tropical country and we need to keep food in freezer. As we are a small restaurant a little far from downtown, we don't have the volume of customers that permits to use the food same day we buy it. Another point that I see in all your reviews is that any restaurant of La Ceiba seems not good anough to get a positive review from you. Sometimes you need to see the 2 sides of a medal and understand that some contraints are part of the country you visit. Hope you will find a restaurant who will fill your needs and on our side we take note of your comment and we'll do our best to make the ameliorations.

This place is pretty awesome! The view is great, its right on the beach, the water is just so beautiful and you have good shading from their huge champa. We started off with their beer (which was cold - a huge plus!) and some chicken nuggets. I followed it up with their home made poutine which really was delicious! My buddy had the lobster tail, the fish was fresh and the cooking was spot on.The crew was very cordial (they even offered us some free shooters). Overall a great experience.
