Just a great meal with my big family. Very reasonably priced and easy going. All of us agreed how delicious all of our meals were - especially the seafood and chicken!

Wish Willys Bar & Grill is a great place to eat when staying on Caye Caulker. On the west (back) side of the island. In a shaded yard with comfortable "go slow" setting, chef Maurice and his crew provide an awesome selection of fresh seafood and accompaniments for a delicious meal, at very reasonable price.

Relaxed, laid back, outdoor setting. Food is absolutely wonderful!! I can't emphasize this enough. That said, you can't be in a hurry. Things move at a slower pace in Caye Caulker, but the food is well worth the wait. I had the grilled lobster and my friend had the jerk chicken. Both dishes were cooked perfectly and were amazing.

The menu at Wish Willy's is simple with a selection of grilled fish and meat for the huge BBQ and sides to go with. It was really busy when we arrived and service was a bit slow but we were brought bug jugs of margarita's whilst we were waiting. The food was delicious and in good portions. We were even... More

Excellent food, and Maurice is a hoot! Drink selection is limited, but I saw other folks brought their own.

My favorite spot on the island! Went twice during my stay: The first time by myself and the second with a group of friends I met while traveling. Maurice made me feel right at home both times. It's outdoor backyard seating and BBQ style cooking with great prices. The my first trip I had a delicious full snapper and the... More

We went there with my sister for news year eve and Maurice had prepared an amazing buffet including lobster, chicken and beef. It was a really inexpensive feast. The place is the backyard of his home, very cozy and safe from the strong winds on the island. Maurice also invited us for some beers and joined us for a nice... More

Tables are at the backyard of a home. Food tasted good but vegetables where still raw. Service could have been better. The cook does everything at the same time he cooks, that's the only reason I gave it a 3. For 20bz you get good food (lobster, shrimp, conch or chicken)

BEST MEAL on the island - authentic, inexpensive, and relaxed. My husband had jerk chicken and I had grilled veggies – both delicious. Recommending arriving at 7:30 unless you want an extended happy hour - the owner/cooks gets a slow start. We got there at 6:30 which was his signal to get up and light the BBQ so dinner took...
