Sutra Vegetarian Cuisine
Sutra is not just a restaurant, it is an experience—for the owners, the chef, and the customers. The menu’s focus is on seasonally inspired foods. This means that the menu is always changing and that the restaurant produces a small amount of waste because it does not stock a lot of inventory that could go bad. The interior of the restaurant was made from recyclable and eco-friendly products, the napkins are cloth and all of the food scraps are used as compost for the garden. Each day the five-course menu is designed for the evening seating (there is only one seating a night). The menu changes every two weeks and is rarely duplicated.
Aqua Verde Café and Paddle Club
If you are looking for good food with a Latin American twist, then this is the spot to explore. The portions are big, the food is good and the Margaritas are even better. The vegetarian enchiladas are some of the best you will find and the view on the water makes it a relaxing spot for lunch or dinner. Before or after you eat, take advantage of the paddle club. Single and double kayaks are available by the hour as are standup paddleboards.
