Had 5 for dinner so we had a variety - T-bone, fried chicken, beef and a sandwich. There was plenty of food and a delightful staff. Everything is cooked to order, so there is a bit of a wait.

The salad was nice with lots of ingredients. Typical of Honduras, only one kind of dressing.

Fried chicken was outstanding as was the beef. Skip the steak, it was thin and overlooked but served with grilled onions - a nice touch.

Northern Lights is a bit more expensive than most comparable places in the area.

I ate here with a group of five, so was able to sample a few dishes. I ordered the Carne Asada (grilled beef) plate which was served with beans, greens, fresh pico de galo, cheese, and tortillas. The beef was flavorful, but very tough. Something I'm finding is pretty normal for the area. I didn't care for the cheese which was a hard cheese that had a strong flavor.

Two people at my table had fried chicken and it was amazing. Very crispy and the breading has a nice spice and tons of flavor.

Staff was friendly and service was a tad slow, however, we attributed it to ordering fried chicken which can take some time.

We heard this place was good and it sure was. The service was very mama's house and they are in no hurry but it was pleasant. I do suggest to go day light. Enjoy the mini boardwalk off the same street but be vigilant it can seem unsafe but only at night fall. Food was awesome and a large amount was served. They have a sharing library with tons of English books. You may even be lucky to see some intresting people outside.

Great food at decent prices. Staff is very friendly. We went for lunch and the restaurant was packed - regardless, food was served fairly quickly. Definitely my favorite place to eat in Tela!
