While the Picasso was a long ways south from our resort, the staff was very welcoming and we felt that offset the travel time. Our 2 starters were only fair to okay, while the 2 entrees were okay to good. Specifically, the fish wrapped in banana leaves was tasteless, yet the sauces was way too spicy for us. The Chicken...

We live in San Pedro and every Thursday Night is our must do. The Chef's Tasting Menu is Definitely our favorite. An eclectic menu that features Caribbean cuisine with a twist. We are never disappointed.

Very nice setting once you are inside. The food was different than traditional Belizean food but was creative and excellent.

What a wonderful meal we had at Casa Picasso. My husband and I shared the bacon jam mac n cheese, warm bacon salad and chicken satay to start all of which were so tasty - it's not often we fight over who gets the last of the salad! Then we shared the short ribs which melted when you cut them... More

I've taken friends and family to this restaurant -- all experienced travelers and some hard-core foodies. Everyone gave rave reviews. The owners are friendly and attentive, even remembering a food preference three months after my first visit. I highly recommend it.

In the middle of nowhere you find a place that serves a dinner comparable to any restraunt in Beverly Hills. The presentation of the food is first class all the way. A bit pricey, especially for San Pedro, but worth it!

We split the macaroni and cheese with bacon jam and shrimp tempura with a mango habanero dipping sauce appetizers, followed by the pork chop with an apple brandy glaze and a smoked Gouda polenta cake as our entree for dinner. Our only regret was eating lunch because this was the best meal we had in San Pedro and we wished... More

They sent a cab to pick us up and take us back to our condo. One of the few air conditioned restaurants in San Pedro. Decor is contemporary. Service excellent. Food fresh and delicious. Friendly owners. Highly recommend!

Cute, quaint restaurant on the south side of the island. It's a great restaurant for couples, or small groups- not a very large or crowded restaurant. The food was great- we all had Snapper steamed in banana leaves as our main- delicous!
