We were exceedingly pleased with the food and service in the casual bar/restaurant on the grounds of this lovely and impeccable resort hotel...perfectly trained bartenders and servers...great food from the Hotel's main kitchen...elegant Caribbean atmosphere. Quite expensive--almost everything is imported to Ambergris Caye island--but worth it! We would especially like to cite the super-courteous, knowledgeable service provided by Hugh and... More

It's unpleasant to write a bad review and I try to put myself in the shoes of the owner. However, when you are hoping for a special Christmas dinner for your family and your reservation is moved later by an hour to 830 pm and then you are told you will be seated at 845 pm you feel disrespected. When... More

Dear Skepticmac, Thanks for choosing to join us for dinner this Christmas. I understand that your party requested a 7:00 PM seating but were informed that, regretfully, we didn’t have a table for a party of your size until 8:30. Fortunately, when you arrived at Victoria House, we were able to quickly reset your table, the previous guests having just... More

We ate here and enjoyed the food and ambiance on my girlfriend's birthday. Then paid the bill and noticed a couple lines on the bill adding 10-12% with abbreviations and no way of knowing what it was without asking (probably taxes, etc.)...but ok, they had the 15,20,25% tip calc on the bottom of the receipt so that one knows how...

The restaurant at the Victoria House is as good as it gets. They have a great menu, the service is impeccable and the staff are super friendly and helpful. If you want something they bend over backwards to make it happen. We have eaten here twice in four days and will eat here again at least once more this week.

I read the reviews but was persuaded to go by the staff at our hotel since I was celebrating my 40th birthday. Another restaurant in the area did vegan food for me very well, and the exec chef even came out to ask me questions, so I figured I would feel welcome here. Hmm, not so much. We came into... More

Dear WFT-SLT, I’m sorry to hear that we weren’t able to satisfy your criteria for a vegan meal. As you observed, we do have a vegetarian menu as well as a number of items on our regular menu that would qualify as vegan. I will speak with our Chef and our Dining Room manager today to discuss how any such... More

Everything we ordered was delicious.. Is pricy comparing with other places in San Pedro but all atmosphere is refined at Victoria house so it was expected. Food was perfect and chef is creative matching simple ingredients with a sofisticated taste.

The restaurant itself is really nice. The food was above average, but it seems like they rush you through the meal. Our server wanted to know if we had decided what we wanted for our entire meal when ordering drinks. If we're spending $150-$200USD we're at least going to milk the atmosphere for a few minutes. Not sure what the... More

We stay at Victoria House overnight. The rooms are lovely. But the restaurant is way way bad. I mean service is just disgusting for a place like this. The restaurant was empty when we arrived in the morning. We sat down and was waiting for the wait staff to offers us coffee or whatever. No. they did not even came... More

Dear Chipiingt, My goodness, what a bizarre post. Until today, I’ve never come across as interesting a review of our (or any other) restaurant. The stunningly boorish behavior you ascribe to our waitstaff is so diametrically opposed to my day-to-day experience and with feedback I regularly receive about them as to genuinely incomprehensible. As you may be aware, the sort... More

I wasn't planning to eat at Victoria House during our brief stay in Belize given many restaurants were rated higher on TripAdvisor, but when our golf cart broke down right outside, we decided to give them a shot. The food was excellent - some of the best I've ever had. I had a grouper special and my husband had the... More
