The atmosphere is great. The food was very good. The lobsters were smaller than at other places but heck, so was the bill. The pork chop was seriously the best thing on the menu, don't let it be passed by bc lobster is on the menu. I highly suggest going with a bunch of people, split pitchers of rum punch... More

Wish Willy's was one of our favorite spots on Caye Caulker. The owners are super friendly and offer some delicious options for dinner. Watching them BBQ right next to our table was pretty great... felt more like having dinner in a family backyard than a restaurant and we totally loved the casual vibe.

Came upon this place when we were walking around Caye Caulker looking for dinner. Wish Willy's is an inviting, cozy backyard BBQ kind of setting. I had the grilled lobster which was fantastic. Good rum punch too. I maybe had a few too many! Just note that they only take cash. I had to walk several blocks to hit the... More

Grilled lobster and snapper with rice and veggies at Wish Willys 20BD each - good and cheap. Bring mozzie repellent as you sit in an outdoor garden area in a private property as they barbecue the food.

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
