Great conch

My wife and I were recently here and had some fabulous conch. For lunch, she had conch crevice and fell in love with it. I had a chicken quesadilla (since I can't eat crevice). For dinner we had grilled conch with mashed potatoes, which was worth a trip back.

After asking whether grilled filet or the whole fish was the most moist I had the overdone filet. My wife's chicken filet was pedestrian. The neighbors seemed to enjoy their grilled lobster.

I had the conch ceviche and it was the best by far of all the dishes I had in Belize! It was just fresh as can be and the the conch was tender as butter!! Great flavor and not too spicy, it was my favorite spot on Caye Caulker.

We stopped on Caye Caulker on a full day snorkeling tour. The happy lobster was great. The outdoor seating on sandy front street had a nice view and was good for people watching. While you wait for your food you can shop at the store across the street. My husband I and ordered the seafood feast or platter. I can't... More

Our family had a wonderful meal here and everyone was able to order what they wanted. After going without coffee for a few days while travelling I was thrilled to find a fantastic cup of coffee and they made it just the way I like it. Heavenly! We liked this restaurant so much that we emailed our stateside friends who... More

We ate here twice. The side dishes were well prepared and there was a good variety. Most places offered rice and beans or white rice but here they actually made an effort to offer something different. The lobster was good, the chicken breast was great. The curry chicken was very good. Large portions. We spent 9 days here, ate every... More

We have been going here for years...mostly for breakfast. It is always one of my favorite stops on the island. Owner operated and she is wonderful! Best fry jacks on the island.

Wasn't anything to rave about. It was food. It filled the belly. Service was a little slow. Island time. The place was ok. It's nice to sit on the porch and eat and watch the people go by. All in all it was just ok.

We ate at this restaurant twice. The first time we ate here the food was good and the special of the day was a free cocktail with the main course which made it really good value. My boyfriend really enjoyed the fish, as a vegetarian, my options were limited and my cheese salad was only average. The cocktails were excellent.... More
