Amazing soups! (made as ordered, that you can actually taste) Perfect options for vegetarians Right on the main pathway where all the main attractions are! (Go visit Contours for paddle boarding after lunch!)

I had a lobster just like the name says- a good size- they had a bigger one for more money- I got the one in the middle- the service was fine- they gave me a lot of sides- garlic bread rice etc but the lobster itself was very good- it cost but it was worth whatever I paid - I... More

The best breakfast on the Island. We have been going to Caye Caulker every other year since 2001. That is when we first ate at Happy Lobster. My husband loves the fry jacks and beans. The fresh squeezed juices are delicious. Always had wonderful service, love looking at the art on the walls while waiting for our meal. We also... More

This was without a doubt the worst service I have ever received in any restaurant anywhere in the world. We ordered breakfast here... the pineapple juice stank and tasted of fish (something which I notice another reviewer has commented on, so it's reassuring to know it wasn't our imagination!), the toast looked as though it had been dry fried in...

The best meal I had on the island! The chicken parm is to die for and their Happy Hour turns into a great evening. They have a buy one get one special on rum drinks, you wont want to leave. Sit outside on the patio and people watch all afternoon! Went back 3 times in 2 days!

I had the fruit and yogurt bowl for breakfast one morning and it was really good. Nice to have tropical fruit instead of usual berries back in the states. We stayed at the hostel that was attached to this restaurant and it was a pretty good hostel as well! The next morning they were all out of fruit and so... More

The waitress was just NOT freindly (spanish speaking) and acted all annoyed when we didn't want the old tasting pineapple juice that she brought out. She showed us the pineapple she used and said it was fresh but it was clearly on the ripper side. They had a hard time getting fresh fruit in and you could taste it. The... More

Good breakfast spot in the main strip in Caye Caulker with a self serve coffee bar. Not a fancy place but the servers are friendly and pancakes nice and fluffy!

We really liked the food at the Happy Lobster, as well as the super-friendly and fast service. Both times we ate there, we were among the only diners and had great service. They also had a free appetizer and drink specials both times. We liked the breaded grilled fish and the shrimp coconut curry.
