From El Divino to Pineapples- In pursuit of delicious lobster


The Lobster Fest was off to a great start on Saturday June 15th, as El Divino Restaurant at Banana Beach Resort was the venue for the festival’s opening night! On the menu were Lobster Sushi Rolls, Tropical Lobster and Key Lime Pie for desert all at a price of only $50BZ. Those that made it out were certainly not disappointed as great food was accompanied by a great atmosphere and awesome live music by Tanya and Zac, as well as Valentino.

The aroma of the delectable lobster dishes filled the air and smiling faces were proof enough that the anticipated lobster dishes had met the satisfaction of all that eagerly awaited the opening of the season. The staff of El Divino certainly did a great job in meeting the demands of the lobster- loving crowd and kept the dishes coming as the orders went in. If there’s one thing that can be said of El Divino it’s that they definitely know how to get the ball rolling. Another year, another great kick off!

On Tuesday June 18th, it was Pineapples’ (Ramon’s Village) turn to wow the crowd with Lobster cuisines prepared fresh for everyone’s delight. Regardless of the rain, Pineapples’ did it summer style, with a Beach BBQ Night. On the menu was just about everything a person loves grilled including chicken, grilled BBQ lobster tail, surf and turf kebabs (beef tenderloin and lobster) and lobster on a stone. All items were served with Pineapples’ signature homemade stewed chili- style beans, creamy mashed potatoes, cold slaw and warm handmade flour tortillas….yuuuum! And if the packed room wasn’t indication enough that the crowd was pleased, the cleaned plates left with nothing but empty lobster shells certainly was.

In addition to the great food the musical selections of Will and Dale also added charisma to this very tasteful evening.


The San Pedro Sun looks forward to indulging in many more tasty lobster treats and will keep you posted as to all things Lobster Fest! Happy lobster dining!
