When open mic nights usually occur, I'm almost always skeptical. This is not to say that I'm dubious of the talent of the courageous few who step up and play, but rarely does a crowd ever embrace such efforts. Babalu's patrons celebrate the rhythm and...More

Cute, homey spot with a well-loved vibe and staff who wear their heart on their sleeve while still giving you sass the entire time. Seb and company are always friendly, the fish is simple and fresh, and there's nothing like sitting around the dock aquarium...More

A delightful bar to chill in Utila. On Mondays they have open mic night, attracting some of the excellent local, and passing by, Musicians. The rum punch is tasty, and cheap, and if you like taking on Utila's challenges then this is definitely not one...More

It is a simple bar/restaurant with a good atmosphere. We went for food, I had fresh calamari with garlic and it was really nice. Priced 180 L. For the food, you have to order and pay at the enterence. Also, there was live music.

Unique spot on the island! Interesting architecture and decoration. I went there for dinner, the food is cooked "a la minute", great taste and service is very friendly. The lighting makes it a bit "spooky", but really gives that island-vibe.

I would rate this a must visit on Utila. It has such a great vibe being over the water and built out of scrap wood. Ordered fish, as we came in, and it was a good plate of food. Beers were cheap, like every other...More
