Great Food Friendly Staff

We ate at Aji 3 times. The Alfredo was my favorite. My husband liked the fish and chips best. The staff was attentive and friendly. The decor was beachy and fun. The ocean breeze was wonderful.

Fun tapas food items and great paella. The restaurant is located right on the beach and the staff provides great service.

We visited Belize during the low season and we were literally the only people in the restaurant. That being said, it was a wonderful location. Right on the beach with beautiful views. White string lights hanging in the trees provided just the right amount of light after sun down. Cute garden/jungle walk to get to the actual restaurant areas. Watch... More

Aji's Tapas is a bit off the beaten path, about a mile and a half north of San Pedro. It's easy to miss and we'd have never tried out if not for a friend who raved about "Tapas" - the actual name of the restaurant is "Aji" - and how beautiful the place is. You'll walk down a path toward... More

We stayed at the Grand Caribe and this restaurant was a short walk. We went there twice. During the first visit 3 of our group had tapas which were pretty good. I had paella which was not great. The mussels were dry and over cooked. On the second visit we each had dinner and all were disappointed.

Such a great find, tucked away in a little spot of paradise. Take a few minutes to walk over the bridge and thru the garden. In the evening, the dining area is covered with twinkling lights and colorful tablecloths inviting you to come in and stay awhile. We tried several of the tapas and the seafood paella - who could...

We came here on our last night in San Pedro after a recommendation from one of the bartenders at Captain Morgan's. I wish we had ate there our first night so we could have gone back. The ambiance of Aji is just the best. Right on the beach but yet if feels secluded and cozy. We had an Austria cheese... More

The mixed paella was a favorite amongst our family and could easily feed 2-3 people. The ambience of this place at night is really wonderful! Would not recommend the ceviche, and just an FYI: there is an 18% auto gratuity on parties of 5 or more.

This place was recommended by the caretaker of the home where we stayed. After a couple of misfires (Capricorn was one), Aji Tapa Bar was a treat. The entrance from the road looks dark and closed in but after wandering down a stone path through the trees, the path opens up onto the beach. It really has one of the... More

The Ciopinno was really good, but the paella (the one with chicken, sausage and seafood) was a bit salty. The staff was very friendly though and overall it was a good dinner.
