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.

I first ate at Licks for breakfast and it was really good, so I kept going back! The prices were very reasonable (a fraction of those at the Resorts), the food was great and the produce and fruits always fresh. Drinks are made from fresh fruit not concentrate. I can wholeheartedly recommend the fry jack for Breakfast. When I first... More

Small place by the water taxi. Food was great, owner is involved and a friendly guy! Had fish fillet, jerk fish sandwich and coconut smoothie. Two thumbs up!

Great location right by the ferry dock, and fair prices. Check out their fresh conch fritters and lobster when I season.

Decided to sit on the beachside and order some BBQ. It was great- I got the BBQ lobster and I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor, it wasn't just the ordinary bbq. The owner explained his "secret" was the coconut husk he uses as the charcoal. It was a great experience overall with quick service, and the owner made me... More

The location and view are amazing. We tried the lobster stuffed jalepeno poppers, conch ceviche and the key lime pie. Honestly, I can't tell you which I Iiked better because everything was amazing! We spend some time talking to the owner Mario who has been all over the world and has some great stories and a lot of local knowledge... More

I disliked that the owner talked about other people in a negative way that could be heard by everyone sitting at the tiny restaurant. He claimed to have the best local food, which was far from true.

I went to Licks last night and had the biggest lobster ever! They were BBQing right on the beach. They use coconut husks for the flavor. We had great Chilean Chardonnay and everyone loved their meal. Other people in our party had the BBQ chicken. Everyone raved about the flavor. You can sit right on the waters edge at table... More

Delicious BBQ right on the beach listening to music play next door. We ate the most delicious, fluffy pancakes ever the next morning! They included fruit and some really yummy maple syrup! A must eat. We loved meeting "Chew" too! Nice people. This is right by the Belize Expressway on the beach - can't miss it.

I came here to see if they could make the "Banango" rum smoothie I had the day before at Palapas. Although they weren't familiar with it, I told them what I thought the ingredients were and they made it to order. Turns out they made it BETTER than Palapas! My boyfriend loved his drink too, can definitely tell they use... More
