Great chicken!!

Great meal for the family. The chicken was cooked to perfection and the choice of sides were all delicious, all family members were satisfied. Nice little patio out back.

Syd's may be slooooow, but you won't be sorry you came. They have delicious cheap fried chicken dinners etc and to be more healthy a grilled chicken with salad option. They have good size portions, super nice staff and a nice little atrium in the back Just don't be in a hurry to get your food! Go Slow! Or just... More

We were recommended by Trip Advisor reviews and locals to eat here and we were not disappointed. The fried chicken and stew chicken are fabulous. The burritos and grenaches with chicken were wonderful too. The local hot sauce is served every where and it is called Maria's and you will be putting it on everything by the end of your... More

We've been to Caye Caulker 5 times over the lat 12 years, and Syd's remains our favorite restaurant, both for lunch and dinner. It has all the advantages - it's away from the main road (and gawping tourists); it has inside and outside (in a walled garden at the back) dining and the cooked-to-order food is always delicious. What more... More

Stopped by for a quick take out dinner. Ladies there cooked up some chicken for me with sweet sauce and rice/beans, coleslaw. Good price and delicious.

Went here for lunch following recommendations after a great morning snorkelling. Lots of locals eating here which is a good sign. Had some fry and stew chicken with slaw and rice and beans which were really delicious. Nice rum punch as well on a hot day.

This was our fresh shrimp night. We started with shrimp ceviche, which was excellent. I had the shrimp fajitas for my entrée while my girlfriend had the shrimp kabob. The fajita sauce is not the same as you would find in a Mexican restaurant in the states. It was good, but different. Both the food and service were high quality.

Great place to eat popular with the locals. Service isn't what you would call fast (then again where is fast on Caye Caulker) but food is good

Everyone raved about it so I went over and tried it. It's okay, but nothing to rave about. I think Church's, Roy Roger's, or even KFC are better by far. My service was very quick. It filled me and hit the spot. The place looked like a hole in the wall and seemed like a pickup joint to me. I... More
