My BF and I decided to eat here for my birthday dinner. We heard that this place is pretty good.... well those were lies. The only good thing about this restaurant is its location (on the beach) and the ambiance. The food itself is completely overrated, overpriced and not good at all. We ordered the mussels for the appetizer. They... More

Dinner at Aji was good. Service was great! We were getting eaten by bugs and luckily they had bug spray. Would definitely eat there again.

We have been to the island many times but haven't been to Aji's. It was a wonderful surprise. We came after dark by golf cart. Such a great setting! The Paella was out of this world yummy! Next time to the island we are going to Tapas. So glad we gave this a chance!

Food was great, very friendly staff and atmosphere is superb. Nothing like eating at tables in the sand, under the palm fronds served by a very friendly staff, in bare feet, as they delivered great cuisine.

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.

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
