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.

The best pie on Amber Gris Caye

The Key Lime pie was delicious. Meringue that was perfect in the humidity of the summer on an island. A huge slice of heaven with a beach view!

Waited an hour for food. Chicken was dry and barely warm. Husband had a burger which was pretty good. The grilled zucchini was good. Overpriced for the quality.

If you're looking for fresh seafood, grilled right in front of you while you sit with your toes in the sand, then Licks is your spot. The menu changes daily depending on what fish comes off the boat. The portions are sizable (we found that many Belizean restaurants serve relatively small portions of main proteins compared to what the average... More

The new owner Dale is a great guy, definitely recommend trying Licks. He really cares what YOU think of his food and service. Licks is also one of only a couple places in San Pedro where you can dine on the beach, so if you want great simply grilled fish and seafood, this is one of the best sports on... More

By Belizean standards we got our meal quickly. Sat upstairs and the owner came up and introduced himself. The four people in our group agreed this was a 5 out 5 rating. Great view, friendly staff and good service. My rum punch was great , x 2. Prices were compatible to the other beach front properties. This just had a... More

Great open air location right on the beach. Try the Stewed Chicken or Lobster Poppers. Grilled "anything" is excellent.

I came here for some ceviche and a smoothie. The ceviche (conch and shrimp) was a bit rubbery and fishy tasting, and the tropical smoothie was not the best either. The service was strange, as the owner had to keep telling the girl to wait on me. It's a nice location, but I probably wouldn't return.

Friendly staff, good food and location. We went for breakfast on our first day in town, and was not disappointed, however we did not return while in town.
