We enjoyed the atmosphere, the air-conditioning (we had biked to San Pedro!) and the delicious food! The prices were very reasonable. Two of us got the grilled veggie burrito and loved it! I wish I had one right now!

Best meal of our stay here in San Pedro, Belize! The shrimp tacos were fantastic and very flavorful! The burger was delish! The banana daiquiri and the papaya daiquiri we could have passed on! Servers were friendly, ambience was great! Tarzan and Jane restroom signs were cute!

Spent a week in San Pedro. Our last meal was to be the best restaurant, voted on by the family, and Caramba! won! The crunch items are very good and different from most things found on the island. They also have great desserts, which is sorta' rare in San Pedro. The setting is in town but the atmosphere is wonderful!... More

We were waiting on the water taxi and wanted to grab a light dinner, Caramba! came recommended by a local so we went. The atmosphere was noisy for a week night, the place was crowded but we were seated right away back in a corner by the bar. We had the grilled seafood combo appetizer. We couldn't tell one seafood...

We have been here many times and always had top notch food and service. Recently they made some updates and added a bar and awesome bartender to really liven up the place. It's not beach front but it is always packed and definitely one of my favorite places in San Pedro!

We ate here for lunch, the waiters were nice, the food came out fast but the ceviche was not so good. But we did order some coconut pie that had cool whip on it but was surprisingly tasty.

We had and excellent coconut... More

We actually ate here twice! Really good food AND it's got air conditioning! Loved that when we walked in, we were greeted by the host who said, "come in, we've been waiting for you"! How nice is that?!?!

It came highly rated but did not meet expectations. The Sopa de Lima was mostly onions. The garden salad dressing was weird. The tails were left on the shrimp in the Island Coconut Curry. They were small so this made it difficult to eat. The scallops were overcooked, making them rubbery and stringy. All in all, not that good.
