Excellent cooking class, pricey but worth the tab as dinner and drinks are included and it's hands on with in depth instruction.

A lovely open setting with real elegance. The owners are very warm and welcoming. The meal was presented well (although with our party of 6 several orders were mixed up). The flavours and quality of the meal was enjoyed by all. The price, though, seemed very high in for the type of meal and in comparison to a high end... More

If you’d like an alternative to traditional island fare and to get off the main drag at West End, then Ooloonthoo might just be for you. Over nine weeks, I ate here twice as a restaurant patron and three more times as a cooking student: each experience was different and all were delightful. Paul’s food is created with great care...

We had an incredible experience at Ooloonthoo in January 2012! I went with three other friends and we all ordered different appetizers and meals, so we were able to try eight different dishes. We were not disappointed! Each dish was unique and delicious. I wish there was an Indian restaurant as good as this one in Chicago! Hope I get... More

Although it is not easy to get a reservation here due to the owner/chef's love of diviing - it's worth the effort. We had the appies of raita and perfectly moist and tender curried calamari followed by spicy goan pork vindaloo. Meals are served on a covered outer deck that is serene and in perfect alignment with the food being... More

This was the best restaurant on the island (and probably my life). The mix between Caribbean ingredients with Indian flavors and style is something to write home about. I am still craving the food and view from their place. Definitely get reservations as they are needed. It's a beautiful couple's home that is 30% the restaurant. So it's very intimate.... More

We couldn't believe we were the only ones to book the night we did, what a treat for us! This little gem of a restaurant is perched up a hillside and the walk up just whets the appetite. The food was FANTASTIC! Menu is on the small side, but there's plenty to choose from. With our large-ish sized group, we... More

Incredible food ambiance and service. Great Indian food in a unique location. My husband and I are indians and have eaten great Indian food on 4 continents and this meal ranks in the top 3. A must while in Roatan.

This is a really surprising and different restaurant - set up on the hills near West End it offers spectacular views. The Indian food was really, really tasty. There were six of us so we tried every dish on the menu and none were bad! It's quite spicy but the owner was happy to make recommendations for those of us... More
