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.

Licks not only has AMAZING food, but the owner, Mario is one of the nicest, most genuine guys I've met while traveling. I ate breakfast there a few days, lunch there once and dinner/BBQ there a few nights; never disappointed. He even let me sit there all day using his wi-fi to work and talk his ear off... without ever... More

Caye Ambergis is, in general, surprisingly expensive. That is, if you are a budget-minded traveler. Which is also what makes Lick’s such a good option in San Pedro. Yet I would be disrespecting them to say that cheapness is all they got going. Lick’s is cheap and good. That may be what makes them stand out from the countless other... More

Food is always a BIG part of our family vacations, and after several disappointing meals in San Pedro we were about to give up on having satisfying food. Then a fellow diver (Bill) encouraged us to try Lick's. This unassuming little beachfront cafe offered us exactly what we had hoped for. Delicious, fresh food with great flavor and perfectly seasoned... More
