Guide Review - The Jade Seahorse in Utila, Honduras
The most staggering elements of The Jade Seahorse, however, are the spaces in between. The artist owner has spent years turning the verdant grounds into a marine-themed carnival of seashell mosaics, whirligigs, windmills, platforms, gazebos, bridges, pathways dotted with beach glass, everything gleaming and spinning merrily.
The restaurant itself is noteworthy, not just for its interior reminiscent of Joe's Crab Shack on hallucinogens, but for the tasty cuisine on its short menu. In fact, the non-alcoholic drink list is much longer than the list of food. Try the Grapefruit Crush, an icy concoction made from juice squeezed to order, and you'll find yourself sipping them in future island dreams.
