Lobster burrito is out of this world!

Lobster burrito is out of this world! Couldn't believe the amount they give you for such a cheap price! Beers were ice cold too!

I come to Belize multiple times a year and I have always ate at the pink building across from Waruguma. I decided to give it a try this last time and it was just ok. I had the shrimp burrito. I guess they now changed their name to Papusaria Hati. Maybe business is down and they can play off the... More

The ambiance of this open air restaurant is nice, but I was disappointed by the food. Was going to get the papusas but after the waiter's recommendation got the lobster burrito (at 30BZD the most expensive thing on the menu) and did not care for it. Lobster was way over cooked. My friend got two papusas and one of them,... More

Great (affordable) food in a clean and friendly atmosphere! We ordered papusas, a burrito, and the fish special to share as a family -- all was very delicious and we had plenty leftover! Could have eaten here multiple times during our stay but we were busy trying the other great food on the island.

You get so much for your money here and everything I've had is delicious. The ceviche is one of the best on the island. The pupusas are fantastic and the lobster burrito is enough for 2 or 3! Service is good and seating is ample. If you want a satisfying meal, come here for sure!

Best Food for the Money No questions. - 2 BZ for an amazing papusa. This should not be optional it should be a required stop and make sure you go back often . they updated the place but the food is still great, cheap and plentiful. nothing bad to say, super fast easy and really accommodating. Bring cash but not... More

The lobster pampusa enough was reason to visit this little open air resturant but the tres carne burrito was out of this world. The lobster was amazing as well. I would definitely visit this place again and if it were local it would be a one-a-week habit. Be sure to try the Belikin Porter beer. Local favorite and now one... More

I had an excellent lunch that was priced reasonably. The service was excellent and I had a wonderful conversation about my favorite topic, food, with the staff there. The lobster was excellent and the butter sauce was the best I have ever had. It's located on back street and well worth the extra block to get there. Seek it out... More

My wife, who historically has bit of an uneasy stomach, ate here twice at the recommendation of our water taxi driver. AMAZING!!! Both times we got 1 shrimp burrito...not 1 each...1 to share! This burrito is about 10inches long and as big around as my forearm! Covered in shredded cabbage and a buttery seafood broth!! Just incredible!!!!
