This was by far one of our favourite restaurants during our two and a half weeks around Guatemala and Belize. Not only is the food delicious but this review is particularly down to the host and owner, Maurice. The first night we arrived my boyfriend was expecting the worst because of the back-yard setting, the lack of menus (you order... More

Maurice is the guy who runs the place and according to his partner if his bike is there the place is opened. We had breakfast here and the food and atmosphere was amazing. It a great chill place to grab a bite. To find it look for the tiny arrow in the top of the sign. He was apparently putting... More

It might be in someone's backyard and it's far from a 5 star ambiance, WIsh Willy is 5 stars is the most important ways: food quality, price and service. My wife and I shared our dishes: grilled lobster and grilled fish - both fresh and delicious. Accompanied by grilled veggies and potatoes, there wasn't a scrap of food left on... More

My husband had lobster, which ha didn't feel had enough butter and garlic to flavour it nicely. I had the chicken, which was absolutely amazing. The plate was nicely sided with baby potatoes and real veggies; beans and squash and others, which was a treat as rice and coleslaw are usual sides.

This was one of the best meals I had on the island. I had the lobster tail and veg. Maurice was such a fabulous host. He even grilled up the snapper my son had caught that day for no cost. He was super kind and friendly. Super casual dining in his backyard. Highly recommended.

We came in shortly after dark and were unsure if the restaurant was open. A quick shot across the yard and Maurice (Wish Willy) came out of the kitchen and invited us in. He cooked us up the best pork chop and jerk chicken we've ever had. This property is shared with some cabanas and Maurice's house with the tables... More

Wonderful food in a backyard BBQ atmosphere. The chef is a character, and likes to give table touches while he cooks your food, with a complimentary drink or high five. I had the conch curry and it was delicious. One of my favorite places on the Island.

Everything is $18 BZD ($9 US) and you feel like you're in a friend's backyard. Would definitely go back!

This place is exactly what I imagined would be on a Caribbean island. We were given loads of free rum punch because a girl on the table next to us knew someone that knew the owner! Super friendly and chilled out with the most delicious food (veggie option available!)
