Best Dinner in Ambergris Caye!

We always have one "nice" dinner out on the more expensive side while on vacation and chose Casa Picasso for our Belize trip based on its outstanding reviews. After one meal here, it is clear that those high marks are well-deserved. The lobster sliders were a simple yet delicious starter and the... read more

Recommended as the best on the island , we were expecting the best and the chef does try..But we were not sure if it's an island restaurant being Metropolitan or a Metropolitan restaurant being Island. They have truffles and lobster mac and cheese , which were ok but honestly did not need it on the island - food was interesting... More

Our favorite restaurant in Belize for dinner! This time we got the lobster mac and cheese...the best we've ever had. For entrees we got the double cut pork chops and the chocolate vanilla spare rib. The spare rib dish was fantastic! The vanilla bean risotto was awesome and went nicely with the chocolate dusted spare rib. Desert was the chocolate... More

Casa Picasso is a gem in San Pedro! If you're a fan of lobster, this is the place to find and enjoy. My wife and I had the lobster sliders (wow!) and lobster risotto, both were tremendous and extremely generous with the amount of lobster. Service was top notch and ambiance was eclectic. The owners, Jackie and Adam, greeted us... More

Casa Picasso has excellent food! We decided to order the tapas and one entree. The lobster sliders and lobster mac and cheese were good. The pork belly in oyster sauce was the best pork belly I have ever even. It was wonderful! For our entree we had the banana leaf wrapped fish. This was great as well. I would absolutely... More

We had just a wonderfull diner. It is certainly the number 1 place here in San Pedro. Extreme friendly staff that gave the wireless code without even asking. And then the food: superbe. It is a little difficult to find, in a place where you wouldnt expect a restaurant. Not a place to miss.

Casa Picasso is a special restaurant in San Pedro. You won't just stumble into it, but since it is off the beaten path, they will send a taxi to pick you up. The owners are extremely gracious and set a wonderful tone for their restaurant. The food is outstanding and the chef is very creative. The lobster sliders and banana... More

The food was very good, and the service was excellent. The menu did not explain the food very well and so what we ordered and what we received was very different. It was good but not at all what we expected.
