Estel's is a great spot on the beach, complete with sand floors. Casual atmosphere and great people watching. Food is generally consistent and fresh.

I have just gotten back from San Pedro and I have to say this was one of the worst meals and experience I have EVER had at a resturant. Thesand floors are a cool idea BUT when sand gets in your food, that is when it becomes not such a cool idea. Food: I ordered the french toast - the... More

Dining in the sand under old Palm trees. One of the best breakfasts ever coupled with the best Bloody Mary in the islands. Consistent, friendly service, and really good food. A staple of our diet whenever we're in Belize.

Estel's is a great laid-back environment on the beach with a sand floor and a huge chalkboard for the menu. The food is always good, service excellent, and there is good people watching in the shade. It is a must visit in San Pedro just for the experience. Oh, and the conch soup was great!

A short walk along the beach you reach Estel's, it's a stop for tourists and locals alike. They advertise all day breakfast but if you can't find what you want here then forget it there is no satisfying you. There were 5 of us, we were waited on quickly, sitting at a picnic bench on the beach. The menu is... More

Thank goodness for Estel's. It was one of the few places open early enough before our 7am fishing departure, but boy it knocked our socks off, we kept going back for the egg sandwiches. We even got chicken burritos to go one day for our full-day excursion, and they were spectacular even after sitting idle for a few hours.

I'm on my third trip to the Island and Estel's has been a staple every time! Great coffee, delicious watermelon juice and breakfast burritos are my favourites:)
