Wow. Heard such good things about this place. Very disappointed. The conch was over cooked. My son didn't have enough ketchup for his fried and burger. My wife got some thin, flavorless milk for 'sour cream'. No one ever, not once asked us if we were ok, doing good, needed anything, etc. I went the entire meal without anything to... More

A well-known reataurant in San Pedro. Is on a back street but worth looking for. We never miss it when we are here. I'm not a fan of Papusas but those who like them love Wargumba's. I love everything else. Portions are huge. The lobster is scrumptious. It can get very busy but worth the wait.

The papusas (filled and grilled corn tortillas) were made right before our eyes. The pork and cheese was wonderful! I ordered a lobster burrito, which had 3 whole lobster tails...one diced inside, one diced on top, and one in the shell on the side. It is a brightly lit, clean restaurant, with a sand floor and miniature restrooms. Our dinner... More

If you are in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye you have to try the seafood burrito at Waruguma's. They have moved to a larger location on back street - but the food is as good as ever. Be sure to split the burrito with a friend - you can't eat the whole thing. Best burrito ever.

After dining at their previous location four or five times, we had high hopes for the new location. Sadly something was lost in the move. Too many leftover shells in the lobster burrito quickly diminished our appetites. The pupusas were pretty good but the main dish was such huge disappointment they couldn't save the dinner. The service was not friendly... More

Authentic Belizean food, freshly made, service is great. They moved to a larger space recently. So glad we found them. The paposas are great. The chicken and lobster if very tasty. Never disappointed.

We spent about a week in San Pedro and visited quite a few restaurants, but we kept coming back to Warugma. The food was great, and it was a much better value than some of the restaurants on the beach that charge a lot more for food that was not nearly as good. I highly recommend the chicken pupusas (one... More

We had a very fun experience testing the waters for the first time with food from Belize. Great seafood and we went twice!

They have not only changed locations to Back Street, but their quality has changed as well. We won't be going back.
