The atmosphere is romantic and quaint. Highly recommended. Reserve a table and take your time to enjoy the experience.

Linga Longa

During the daylight hours Linga Longa is neat little cafe. But you really must experience it at night. The white table clothes and candle light combined with the beach front view creates a formal setting that somehow works with casual attire and the feel of the Island. Be prepared to be impressed by the selection on the menu, The prices are a bit high for Roatan ( appetizers 8-15 US dollars and main course 15-30's if you want lobster) But where else in West End do you find lamb and pumpkin soup? Everything cooked to perfection. For the quality of the food and ambiance it is a great deal
