Description: 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.

Food was not good, and the sweet tea was so gross. I fed my meatballs to the dog sitting by us. Lobster was ok.

We wandered up to Licks on a Sunday evening when many restaurants were closed. I admit, I didn't have high expectations for this tiny beachside cafe, but we were hungry and the owner was friendly and welcoming. The menu was written in pencil on a notepad, which intrigued me because of the authenticity. Let's just say I was absolutely blown... More

We stopped by here for breakfast, and were treated to some of the best fry jacks we've ever had. The portions were also pretty generous compared to other restaurants we went to in Belize, so you definitely get your money's worth.

You pretty much find yourself on Licks front porch when you exit the San Pedro express. It's a great little place to grab a bite while waiting to head in or out. Beautiful views and really nice staff.

The best Lobster and Pina Colada ever! The barbeque is operational fromThursday to Sunday.....and this is where the famous lobster is cooked in... Absolutely delicious! The price is more than reasonable and the portions are sizeable! The Pina Colada is made from fresh pineapple and coconut....divine! A visit to Licks is a MUST!

We first met the owner back in 2011 at one of the best resorts in northern Ambergris. We came back this year to find that he had opened a cafe down on the beach in San Pedro itself. Freed from the isolation of the resort, Mario has hit it out of the park with this cafe. Friendly, great food, and... More
