They have some of the best food on the island. The prices are great too. When lobster is in season you can have a lobster breakfast for $20 Belize ($10 US). Nice atmosphere too.

In the past we have dined in this restaurant and enjoyed the food. But not this time! As soon as we entered the restaurant, we felt that we were unwelcome. And it got worse! A surly man eventually took our order but when it arrived it was inedible. We were happy to pay the bill (rather than try to eat... More

We were recently in Caye Caulker for your wedding. We had dinner here one of the nights. There were 10 of us. We had an assortment of dishes and almost everyone loved their food. Someone didn't like the pasta but I think it was just personal taste. Just my wife and I had breakfast another morning. You must order the... More

For over a week I have been having wonderful breakfasts, sometimes as brunch, from the good variety of dishes. The evening meals are freshly cooked to order, ample and very tasty. The menu, I guess, will suit all tastes. Easy to find on the Main Street. On certain days, it may be best to reserve a table for dinner if... More

According to our friend who has lived on the island over 20 years the stewed chicken with rice and beans is great. I had to agree. It was the best I ate on the island.

Despite the name, they don’t have lobster year-round, especially since when we went, lobster was not in season. Our group of 5 stopped in for a late-ish lunch on a weekday. We sat outside on the porch and our group of 5 ordered drinks, sodas, pork chops, (clearish seafood) soup, a burger, chicken fingers, and a special fish. None of... More

3 of us just left the restaurant.... We asked if we could pay separately....waitress .said we would have to go to the bar to do that. Not a problem for us as for the past two weeks that is exactly what we have done in all the other restaurants on the island without issues. One of us went to bar... More

Tried this restaurant as we were passing by, just wanted a quick meal. An excellent meal, well presented, reasonably priced, friendly staff and well worth the price.

The happy lobster was our regular spot for breakfast during our stay in caye caulker. They had great food and very friendly service. My picky eater son was thrilled because they made a great grilled cheese sandwich! They also had delicious lime juice. Can't go wrong with the happy lobster
