Stopped by for lunch while visiting some beaches over by Esperanza. Our waiter was funny and helpful, and the food was normal burger joint food. They also have ice cream! Only place on the island I was able to find mint chocolate chip ice cream (my favorite).

Really not a fancy place but who cares. Food was great and coupled with a awesome view of the water it really doesn't matter if you have to sit on a picnic table. Made reservations for the Wednesday night Paella(which is necessary) and it didn't disappoint. Some of the best I've eaten in the Caribbean. The Friday night BBQ and... More

Great place for drinks during the afternoon. Will have sports on if you need to watch your favorite team. Awesome BBQ menu (especially the pulled pork). Nice breakfast. Extra friendly staff.

Suggestion: Check all restaurants in Esparanza for the days & nights they are open. Not all are open each night of the week. Belly Buttons is only open for BBQ Thursday- Sunday. Wednesday is Paella night with reservations required. We started out with 2 very delicious drinks from their drink menu. ( See photo ) Then we ate their wonderful... More

Belly Buttons is an open air casual restaurant with great BBQ ribs! The staff & owner are very friendly. We also came back for breakfast a few days later. Best banana bread French toast I ever had.

In a pinch I don't mind picnic tables for dinner but that set the tone for the food and wine too. Dried up Paella and tasteless iceburg lettuce with dime store dressing. Sutter Home?

We went out to celebrate some unexpected good news while on vacation, and Belly Button's was a wonderful choice. All the folks working here were nice and personable with us, if a little on the slow side. Everyone except me had the paella, and they all were raving and then very full. I had the veggie quesadilla, and I am... More

My husband is a huge ribs fan, and he said this was maybe the best BBQ he's ever had! They also have a veggie burger if you are not huge on meat like I am. We also had a brownie sundae for dessert....to die for! Get it if they have it! This is a really relaxed bar and restaurant, don't... More

We were a little reluctant to go here from a couple of the reviews, and the looks of the place, so were surprisingly happy with our experience. We had a delicious grilled chicken with big baked potatoes and vegetables. After traveling for a few days, it almost tasted like home cooking. It was not very expensive, and the service was... More
