Javi’s Cantina hosts Dinnertainment Soirées that you may join by making a reservation.  These are private events held in the cantina.  You can check our calendar here.

A Dinnertainment Soirée is a private dinner show of 2-3 hours and includes live music.  You reserve your seat and join others in the experience.  This is great for people who are not traveling in large groups, not staying in a villa or have a kitchen or just want to mingle with other Isla lovers.

Please send your information and your dates you will be on the island so we can plan one during your available dates using this form.

What is Dinnertainment?

Dinnertainment is just that… Dinner + Entertainment=Dinnertainment

It’s more than just a private chef and dinner, it is an intimate dining entertainment experience.  We do all the shopping and preparing then cook for you at your villa.  If you want to join in, make it a cooking class just for you.



We start with drinks, 1 round per person are on us.  Javi makes authentic margaritas that are sure to have you wanting more.  Soirées have a cash bar with premium alcohol and wine.

These drinks are enjoyed with appetizers, typically Guacamole, Shrimp Ceviche and Pico de Gallo with chips.

After the yummy spinach, strawberry salad, next comes the entree.  We are flexible and offer fresh fish, shrimp, lobster (extra cost) or arracherra prepared so special, you won’t forget it. With stir fried rice and fresh vegetables.10940621_933447573357005_6997882597885963018_n

While you eat, we are preparing dessert to serve right out of the oven while Javi plays guitar and sings.  Any musicians in your group, the more the merrier!  Marla is sure to sing as well.
