Good Food

Great location and service. Mega Burrito is more than enough for two people. Located right on the beach close to all the action.

On our six day visit to Belize, we actually dined at the establishment twice. To top it off, on the second time, I actually ate twice! We arrived back from a ferry from the mainland, and it was right at the end of lunch. Therefore, I could order the chicken mole enchiladas for an appetizer, and still have enough room... More

We had lunch at the place and the food was great! The serving sizes were huge. This place has a great patio to watch out over the water and great wait staff. Would definitely come again. The chicken burrito was fantastic.

View is great. Food is tasty. Price is right. Service was prompt and courteous. Iced tea wasn't very good, but you can't have it all. Over all you can't go wrong Dining here.

Hubby and I brought our 2 girls to dinner on Friday night to take advantage of half priced margaritas and taco night. We ordered 2 margaritas, poppers, shrimp and conch ceviche, fish tacos and a steak burrito. The price on the margaritas was great but they were just OK, tasted like they maybe were pre-made with a mix. Also, I... More

We arrived to San Pedro on the last water taxi from Belize City and after finding/checking into our hostel, it had gotten pretty late and we were STARVING. Many places were closed or about to close, so we were wandering up and down the beach trying to find SOMEWHERE that was still open (it was a Tuesday and everything shuts... More

From beginning to end this was a great experience. Our waiter was excellent and friendly. The sopa de Lima was amazing, and the chicken quesadillas were delicious. If you like spicy make sure to try their homemade hot sauce on the table.

Our waiter was a little awkward, but the service was friendly enough. Their sangria is the best I've ever had and their chicken burrito was terrific (especially if you add a little of their hot sauce to it). Of course the rum was delicious - the rum on the island was just delicious so make sure everything you get has... More
