My niece and I were staying at nearby Sea and Sun guest house so we thought we would check out Willys. We were glad we did. For Q 15 ( around $7.50 US) I had a wonderful grilled shrimp dinner. It came with nicely sautéed veggies and rice. My niece had a chicken dish for around the same price.whole... read more

I spotted their sandwich board menu on Front Street- it talked of BBQ Ribs, blackened fish with brandy & honey, and about 10 different other things... sounds great so my husband and I decided to go there for dinner. Setting: 2 blocks of front street, on the back part of the island, under huge trees, long communal tables. Very pleasant... More

I was excited to eat here, because I had heard such great things but our meal was simply average. We had quite a few people with us and so they did a family style dinner. Unfortunately the good food ran out fast, such as the shrimp and fish. I felt like I hardly ate anything other than rice and the... More

We went several times in the month we were in Caye Caulker. Remember, you are in Belize, motto, Go Slow. They aren't in a hurry but the food is awesome. All meals are cooked on the BBQ grill. Rum punch is great.

I'm not a fish eater to start with...I have tasted many different kinds, many times, but never took a second bite of the same pièce. Having said this to the fantastic and optimistic cook, he prepared me a plate of snapper, with a small pièce of pork on the side, just in case. Well, I don't remember what the pork... More

Expect sharing tables with others and getting your own beer. This feels like a truly authentic island dining experience. The food is good, the people are super relaxed and friendly and everything is just super laid back. Would definitely recommend going there one night. Oh and it's really cheap compared to most other dinner options on the island.

Maurice's food and company is delicious! I was there back in 2013 and to this day remember the warm sandy garden, candles, rum cocktails and fresh lobster... so beautiful we ate here every night for over a week.

Do what you can to find Wish Willys on the northern side of Caye Caulker. My wife and I enjoyed a scrumptious evening meal there. Try the whole fish, pork chops or kebobs. You will not be disappointed. Just remember, "Go slow", as it will take a while for you to be served, but it's worth every minute of the... More

We ate at Wish Willy twice and we had mixed feelings about the place. The first evening we had jerk chicken and grilled prawns with grilled vegetables. The food was good and tasty. And it was cheap- 15 BZ$ each. We asked for conch curry and rib eye steak that were in the menu, they didn't have it but promised... More
