We had fantastic grilled lobster and chicken, as well as an excellent veggie plate. Inexpensive local cuisine, off the main road, but worth the short trek.

We were the first to arrive at Wish Willy's so we had that, "is no one here because it's bad" feeling... but we were greeted by the friendly owner and shortly after, more people arrived. He took us through what was available and it came as no surprise, he highly recommended the Lobster. How could we refuse?!?! The service was... More

Sitting in Wish Willy's yard eating his special for the evening is a real treat and an experience that you can't get anywhere else on the island. It looks like a gypsy camp with small tables and candles scattered around his side yard. The food is good, and the experience is special to Caye Caulker. look for the chalk board... More

Good lobstertails for 18 Belize dollar, with a lot of veggies (for Belizian standards), cheap rum punch and funny staff. Not for a romantic dinner, but nice to sit with some friends and have a laugh! They also have other things than lobster, no worries!

We really wanted to love this place. We had read such great reviews. The atmosphere was quirky (people living upstairs watched us our whole meal) but the service was terrible. The staff were completely uninterested in our party. They had another large party at the time and were far more concerned with drinking and cheering with them. That is all... More

Don't judge a book by it's cover and certainly don't judge a Resto by it's location ... Take the walk off of the main drag and follow Willy's sign ... Fantastic grilled seafood; Lobster Tails and Snapper were the nites specials and they were delicious. The price is fantastic and basically one cost for all ... Given the food quality... More

Great, fresh seafood...and Randy is the perfect host. He couldn't make a salsa hot enough for me, though...I'm back next week, let's see if he can try?

I am a vegetarian, and this was easily the best meal I had on the island of Caye Caulker. I sat down, the server told me he would send the cook over.. she came over, told me she would cook me up a plate of grilled veggies, and that I would love it. She was right!! I have no idea... More

As we sat down we were told we'd be looked after, with no look at a menu of any kind. Out came plates and platters of pork, whole snappers, lobster tails and chicken, accompanied with some of the spiciest homemade hot sauce we've ever experienced. A great local feast!
