Excellent meal

We ate at Aji's during our trip to Belize last week and loved it. Great paella! Good for a large, young family of 6. I would highly recommend this place for families visiting Ambergris Caye. It was delicious!

Perfect atmosphere. Conner and Angie from White Sands Cove directed us to this beautiful outdoor restaurant. A drive from town but perfect for anyone staying north of San Pedro like us. The atmosphere is spectacular and the service was the best on the island. You could not create a more beautiful evening setting than this perfect, beach-side restaurant. This is... More

Four of us took a delightful short walk up the beach with our flashlights to this little oasis with twinkling lights. We had made reservations for a table nearer to the beach and it was lovely, although windy by the time we left. The wait staff was excellent and very friendly. Food was excellent especially the calamari tapas. We are... More

We had a lovely dinner the first night of our stay in Belize. Staff were attentive and friendly. Food was outstanding- shrimp in olive oil with garlic and chile peppers, and the mussels in white wine sauce are not to be missed. Each was served with homemade bread. We will be returning to try the generously portioned sangria.

this is a great spot for a quiet romantic dinner in the sand on the beach. The approach to the restaurant is fantastic, dark at first, then across a pond bridge, the bar and low level lighting in the trees. Food? Well my patella was very good also. Nice wine list. Think about sharing as the portions are large. My... More

We stopped here on the advise of a local. We had rented a golf cart for the day to check out the North side of Ambergris. This place was like a little oasis. Tables on the sand, well shaded, nice breeze, great service. I'm sure it would be a very special place to go in the evening with all the... More

I submitted my previous review a year ago with 5 stars and visited Aji again last week and overall the food is not as good as it used to be. We ordered the fried cheese, clams & artichokes, stuffed tomato, mixed paella, and penne arribata with meatballs. We have had all of these in that past except the pasta dish.... More

We enjoyed our meal at Aji Tapa Restaurant. The scenery was amazing. Even the walk to the restaurant was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was good. The fish of the day was very fresh. Would go back again.

Nice variety on the menu. Had Conch Curry which was huge, and tasty. Fish of the day was fine. Romantic lighting. The lagoon was a bit smelly, but that was true all along the coastline.
