A cool place for a bellyful

A fantastic location i. The middle of front street. Friendly staff and a cool ac greet you as you walk in and the food does not disappoint. Fresh local dishes give you look into how island cuisine is done

If you are craving a TGI Fridays or Applebee's' experience with much better food then carumba's is for you . The food was actually very good but it lacked the local feel or charm and felt more like a chain you might eat at in the states. They have a big TV advertising diving and snorkeling and a plastic menu... More

Carambas was very good. I had a version of rice and beans with chicken (a common dish in Belize). There were also lots of seafood options that looked good.

This was a nice, open place where a good many locals were eating. My husband and I, vegetarians, were somewhat limited in what we could order. He got a burrito and I ordered BBQ shrimp, with reservations. As it turned out, the shrimp were some of the very best I've ever had, not at all what someone from Georgia, US... More

My dinner was just ok. The oreo cheesecake was great. Prices are a little high though and the happy hour wasn't very good.

Was expecting better atmosphere based on how many people were there. Staff was not very nice and the manager in the yellow shirt was ignorant to his staff and even asked me to exchange seats with my son so people can better pass to the washroom. Didnt try food left after his comment

Caramba has great fish and cocktails! They have a fresh fish, filet or whole baked in foil with veggies, seasonings and it is delicious. I always have a pina colata when dining at Caramba, but they many wonderful cocktails to choose from. The staff is courteous and friendly.

It is the restaurant in San Pedro Belize where you feel that you enter your personal kitchen from the moment you step in until you are finally able to leave. Everybody is at your service - attending to you like part of the family - every dish is a delicacy - after every mouthful you automatically will say CARAMBA (... More
