Mario and one of his lead server's Ashley will take the ultimate care of you during your visit to Lick's! We spent some great time on the front patio, chatting with Mario, being treated so kindly by Ashley and enjoying Coconut Palm Climbing Leo! We were lucky to hit the Lobster season, and Mario if a genius at cooking these... More

I ate here both mornings I was in San Pedro - too bad I had to come home last night - would have eaten breakfast there again!!!!! Breakfast burrito is to die for & the fruit plate is fresh and delicious. Coffee is yummy & Mario is a great host - very personable & knows a lot about the island.... More

I absolutely enjoyed the food & company at Lick's. The stuffed flapjacks were delicious & the owner, Mario, made us feel so comfortable & welcomed. Lick's sits right on the beach so you have an awesome view & it's a great place to "people watch" all when morning activity is going on. The price is reasonable, too. Highly recommend it!

Laid back little shop and restaurant. Buy some cold beers to go or sit upstairs and people watch on the beach below. I had a great lobster coconut curry here, served in a conch shell. Not overpriced and really tasty.

It is always such a pleasure to stop here whether for a coffee (try the one named after me - not for the faint hearted), breakfast - yummy and just right before taking the Water Taxi, lunch or dinner - the coconut curry is out of this world. You can sit downstairs and chat with the locals or go up... More

Amazing food in an amazing location on the beach. The owner Mario only buys the best local food daily and designs his menu accordingly and his personality ensures all guests are not only fed well but made to feel part of the local population. Licks serves as a local coffee gossip shop as well as a first class restaurant. Diners... More

I have to go to San Pedro once a month for my stamp and Licks is always my first and last stop on the island. I had my first chicken escabeche at Licks and it was soooo delicious. Everything we have eaten at Licks has been very tasty. Kennedy, a Belizian ate their stewed chicken and said it was one... More
