Our dishes are made fresh daily. We have a large variety of delicious seafood, beef, chicken and pork dishes. Our desserts are as special as our savory ones. We are situated on the beach in front of the Belize Water Express at the end of their dock. We cater to locals and tourist alike. We only create dishes of seafood that have been caught and delivered to us fresh from the local fishermen here in San Pedro and you may see them deliver this fresh fish to us while you are enjoying a refreshing drink or eating a meal from our kitchen. You can indulge in some fresh Sashimi or Poki Tuna while sitting here and enjoying a clear view of the second most longest Reef in the world only half a mile away. We do make fresh vegetarian foods as well for the customers that choose not to eat fish or any meats. Please note: We do take credit cards.

Right on the beach

Best breakfast and lunch on the island! . Mario and Dale are amazingly nice. Mario even facilitated our adoption of a stray beach puppy! Great food, great people.

We have been to San Pedro 3 times and from the first visit to Licks, we make sure to never miss it. Everything from the ice coffee, to lunch to dinner was absolutely amazing. Not only were the food and drinks delicious, the location cannot be beat. Whether you dine upstairs or at ground level, the view IS outstanding. Mario... More

I have been to Licks several times. The food is wonderful!! Drinks are great! People come here on a regular basis. So while you are there people talk to each other. You meet new friends. It's a great place to hang out, right on the beach!! Try it, you will become a regular visitor too! The staff is wonderful!

Mario and crew do a great job of preparing good food, getting to know their customers, making local recommendations, and generally making you feel at home in the sometimes wacky world of San Pedro. Everything I tried was excellent. Hasta luego Mario.

Not only is the food wonderful and varied, but the owner Mario and staff are good caring, people with lots of island knowledge. Don't miss eating here and enjoying the seaside view. Breakfast is delish too!

For me, Licks is a great place to get what I want, not what they want to give me. As a vegetarian I rarely eat off the menu. Licks has the flexibility I like, and there is always something I want to eat. They do excellent filled baked potatoes - though they aren't on the menu.
