Outside of Town
The fanciest place in the West End, Ooloonthoo (tel. 504/9936-5223, 6–9 p.m. daily, reservations required), has moved just outside of town, in an elegant hilltop home off Roatán’s main drag. Run by a top Canadian chef (who lived in India for three years studying the regional cuisines) and his Indian wife, the restaurant features a different chutney daily and a menu that varies with the season and the available produce. Main courses run the gamut, from coconut-citrus fish to lamb or oxtail curry. Three-course meals will set you back US$40–47.
