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.

Very tasty food- spicy blackened shrimp. Delicious curry shrimp too. Dessert was the Crazy Banana frozen rum/kahlua drink. Lots of locals in here too- always a good sign!

Wanna loosen up? Get a Hurricane Wendy! We originally stopped in for a quick lunch, which was really good. But we kept coming back because the bar tenders were great and the drinks were amazing! We actually learned more about Belize and Island history from our bar tender here than we did at historical sites. Come in thirsty, leave in... More

Didn't like the food to much, not too much flavor on it. It remind me of Mexican food, I was hoping get some local food from them.

This restaurant not only has great food, but the wait staff and owner were the friendliest i have ever encountered. They had us laughing and sharing stories before, during, and after our meal. Oh and ask about the FAMOUS key lime pie......DELISH....

Caramba! was so-so. It's in the middle of town, so no beach view. However, the atmosphere was pretty cool. They had a rain forest theme that was unique to all the other restaurants we had been to in San Pedro. I had some kind of coconut curry shrimp. It didn't satisfy. My husband, tired of seafood at this point, went... More

We went in with a group of 9 for dinner. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was FANTASTIC and priced at affordable rates. The entire group walked out happy with their choices. I had the fried whole snapper and it was delicious! Also they had free wifi for costumers. :-)
