Very average regular food

We stopped here for lunch one day based on the numerous positive ratings on tripadvisor. Very uninspired menu of burgers, chicken, salads etc. The food was nothing special and exactly the type of thing that we could get in the states. You sit at picnic tables right on the Malecon so it has a... read more

Usually this is a great place to get a quick a excellent bite to eat for lunch. The reuben sandwich is delicious! Our experience there this time however was a little different in that we had to wait quite a while for our order. Apparently a big crowd came in just before us and they also had a take-out order...

I wish we had gone here sooner, the breakfast was amazing. And what a cute little place. We had some kind of a cinnamon French toast thing that was absolutely fantastic. The drinks at 10am were also great LOL. It's got a great view of Esperanza as well. Wish the breakfast hours were a little longer though, maybe til 11:30... More

Belly Button's, Bananas, Trade Winds are pretty much interchangeable. Above average bar food. Laid back. Nothing here will blow you away but you come out with reasonable bill and you are eating in paradise so not much to complain about.

There are not many places to grab breakfast in Esperanza. Belly buttons offers breakfast that is good and affordable. Service is friendly and quick for island time. Dinner menu varies according to the days of the week. Limited to just a few items.

We stopped by for dessert after barbecuing at our rental home one evening and we were in luck - Belly Buttons is one of a very few places to get ice cream in Esperanza. We had a great waitress who took care of us well and brought us great ice cream.

The description of the Paella dinner was very appealing, so we decided to go for it. Big disappointment. The overall dish was flavorless, the rice was cold, and the fish didn't taste fresh at all. It looked and tasted like it was prepared from a box! Many better options for dinner in the area.

I love Belly Buttons! Craig has created a casual, relaxed "island" place where the food is well prepared and a very good selection. The staff are attentive & friendly. I enjoy best sitting at the bar talking with Craig & "solving the key issues in the world"!
