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!

Very good local island style grill. Menu is simple with everything there same price. You can choose from fish fillet, whole fish, shrimps, conch (we missed the season by a day so didn't have a chance to try this since this was my first choice), and even lobster. For meat, they offer chicken, pork chop and lamb. Note that not... More

We had an incredible BBQ at Wish Willy. The sauce and meat were superb. Everyday another cocktail. You always learn to know someone here. And that for only US $10 each!

We just got back from the island and we loved our dinner at this place! It was a true local experience! The food was delicious but the best pat was the service! Mamma Star was awesome on the grill and Maurice sat with us for a bit making us laugh so hard! Can't wait to go back!

you can get real vegetables here! i was sure craving something green and was served up a plate of grilled zuccini which was to die for, alongside the best cooked seafood i had on the entire island. great, chill vibe. overall, the food was more flavorful than anywhere else we ate. dont miss it!

the lights and music set the tone for a fun and relaxing dinner with your feet in the sand. all around there is good conversation accompanied by laughter- not the loud obnoxious kind- just people having a good time together. everyone is very kind here, and the food from the grill is flavored just right. you will absolutely enjoy this...

My husband and I ate twice at Wish Willy. Food is grilled and good food takes time to prepare. So relax, have a Belikan or two, make friends with the international group of customers and I guarantee you will enjoy yourself. We always sat with travelers from other countries which just enriched our experience that much more and of course... More

We spent our last night on the Caye eating at Wish Willy's, after it was recommended by someone who has lived on the island for four years. We definitely were not disappointed! We could tell that when we arrived at around 9pm they were starting to wind down for the night (there was only one other couple eating) but we... More

We had a fun night here at Wish Willy's and enjoyed the chill service. Their food was yummy, and portions were big! Don't hesitate to go here for some cheap and amazing lobster!
