Ambiance and food better than drinks

Overall had a really good meal and relaxed time here. Drinks were brought back incorrect a couple times and not very good once they were correct but no reason not to go. Everything else felt good, good people, polite staff, amazing views, well worth the trip up the island to experience.

I ate here for dinner. It's a short walk north along the beach from the Grand Caribe resort (the path isn't particularly well marked). There's an outdoor seating area facing the ocean. The lobster is very delicious. It's well prepared and very tender--possibly some of the best lobster I've ever had. I would definitely come back.

The wife and I visited last night and what a wonderful evening! Park along the roadside and enjoy the stroll through the jungle garden, across a bridge where you expect to see Croc eyes gazing back from the water, then make your way to seating under the trees along the beachfront. The staff is wonderfully sweet and well informed on... More

Amazing food and service! We were not disappointed in anything we had. We plan to go back on our next trip to Belize! Only advice would be to bring bug spray.

We have been here on Ambergris Caye for 9 days and have eaten twice at Aji. It is situated right on the beach with primarily outdoor dining. Each table is under a rustic gazebo adorned with lights woven through the sticks that make up the roof. It's hard to describe, but it's a charmingly romantic setting! The food is great... More

Dining in the garden under the trees with a view of the ocean.The Tapas were incredible, Conch and Shrimp, served with toast to enjoy that incredible sauce. Sooo good! The Coconut Seafood Cream Soup is filled with an abundance of fresh seafood with amazing flavor! This was definitely one of our favorite stops.

The restaurant is off the beaten road, we saw it when we were biking to town. It's on the North side. Really friendly and nice staff. We had the shrimp in garlic oil and paella. Favors are good. It's not like Spanish food in New York or anything, but pretty good for an island. Would definitely come back here again.

Wandered down from our inn a few lots down the road and had one of the best meals of our stay in Ambergris Caye. Shared the grego salad. I had the grilled lobster (2tails) with mashed potato and small side salad, husband had the pork stuffed with Mango and Pinapple. We took desert to go, coconut and key lime pie... More

The food was good, nothing that was so amazing that I couldn't necessarily find at any of the other eateries and restaurants in the area, though. The service was great and much quicker than a lot of the other places near there. The twinkle lights and being so close to the water are really what made this place special for... More
