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.

People watched on the sandy Main Street while enjoying delicious eggs with shrimp and fry jacks for breakfast. Convenient location. Delicious strong coffee and fresh juices too.

Take a pass on this one, folks. If you need to try the happy lobster- make it for happy hour drinks and skip the food. The location is handy and they do have fans inside if it is a still day. My grilled fish was overlooked and smothered with some kind of canned mushroom and tomato gravy, considered "creole style."... More

Staff were very friendly and helped my parents with something earlier in the day, so that's why we returned there for dinner. It's an alright spot. Two-for-one drink specials while we were there got things going. The food was OK... fresh lobster, descent presentation, it was enjoyable. The place is basically just a bar with a seating area for tables... More

This restaurant had the best ceviche, and other dishes were good too. But it's hard to order something else when your favorite is great and reasonable. For a mere $22 BZE you can indulge in this generous regional mix of fish, lobster and shrimp. Leave the conch out as it sometimes has the texture of rubber bands. Street adjacent seating... More
