Casual man...

We're staying in one of the cottages on the site. Had the jerk chicken and pork. Good meat well cooked and tasty jerk spicing. Price is very good value, only $BZ15 a main. Friendly, relaxed, outdoors, cold Belikin. Not much more that one really needs...

Wish Willy's is definitely an island spot - casually arranged tables all outside (a couple might be undercover in case it's raining), grill outside right by the tables so you can see your dinner cooking. We both had snapper (he had whole snapper, I had the filet) - it was perfectly cooked and the side vegetables and rice were a... More

On the recommendation of our fishing guide we tried Wish Willy. We ended up eating there three of our four nights. We told Willy to just surprise us with a meal. Wow...! Our highest recommendation!

We ended up eating here two nights (out of four) during our stay on Caye Caulker but we wish we had eaten here every night. The grilled seafood, veggies, and rice are simple but excellently prepared. And best enjoyed with Belikin. This place is totally chill and Maurice himself will come ask you what you want to eat. He may... More

We had a great bbq style meal here! It was a different atmosphere as it is outdoors. We let Willy decide on our dinner which was a change! The Food was great value too.

simple menu - basically, everything is grilled outside - but the lobster was wonderful, and the least expensive we had on Caye Caulker. Casual and friendly atmosphere.

Local fair, small intimate hard to find but very good. Go with the fresh fish or the always available chicken with rice and beans.

We loved the BBQ at Wish Willy's - jerk chicken was delicious and a great price too. Off the main strip but definitely worth seeking out. Service can be a little slow...but that part of the island's charm.
