Is it acceptable to bring your own food into fins n flippers?

I didn't see any food police when we visited there last month, but I really do not know why you would want to bring your own food. The food at F&F is very good with very reasonable pricing.

Treat yourself there, don't BYO food, it is so worth it. It is the best food for the best price and fun to eat. Get the beans and cheese served in a neat kettle thing that keeps it warm. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

One more vote for not bringing your own food. The prices were very good when we were there last September. I don't remember anything over $10, and the beans and cheese to dip your chips in was wonderful. Fins n Flippers is the best bang for the buck of any port we have stopped in.

Here is a picture of the bean and cheese dip served in the clay pot. It is awesome.

The food at F & F was great....menu items ranged from $5-10 and local beer was only $2.00. Also they have a nice outdoor eating area near the pool with ample seating and umbrella/tables.
Check out their web site...they used to have menus posted online.

Do not bring your own food. They have such good food there. I got the fish special and it was so good. Hand battered and dipped fish. So flaky, and tasty - Ohh that is what I want for lunch today. I wish I was there!!

We were at Fins & Flippers at the end of January, the food and drinks were great, neither of which were very expensive. In fact I think the beer is cheaper than soft drinks too. Nachos, chips, shrimp, chicken were all great. Have a great day!

I thought about packing a lunch from Rosie's and taking it to the resort, but then thatís just wrong I think, from the business point of view. However, I understand morley's point, since you pay separately for entrance (20-25) to use the facilities, then I guess you can argue you are free to BYO.
Still unlike the cruise line alcohol policy, FNF food prices are not oppressive in nature, so I donít think you should, at least I not going to.

I also recommend the food at F&F! The Calamari Sofrito was $8 and it was a generous portion and very good!
Also, try a local beer! Only $2. Or a frozen drink. $5 for a Coco Loco.
One comment about bringing your own food... Most countries have laws against bringing unsealed food and agriculture products into the country. I don't know if Roatan has such a law, but why take a chance. Those laws are in place to avoid introducing a foreign disease or pest into the local ecological system. This is especially important on an island where a new disease or pest could have a devastating effect. Please don't take a chance by bringing food off of the ship. Besides, you'll be supporting a local business and Cindy and the staff at F&F are wonderful people and deserve our support.
OK... I'm off of my soapbox :rolleyes:

We just returned today on the Valor. The food at FnF's was great. We ordered the Funditos (bean and cheese fondue with chips), a grilled chicken sandwich, a chicken quesadilla and a Barena (local beer), the total was $19 US (the beers were $2, so the food total was $17). I wish I had the Funditos right now. There were two of us and we could not finish all of it so you could order less and share.

FnF's food was great!!!! I had the shrimp and it was very good. You will have a great time... just make sure you bring your towel, they don't have towels for you.
