Hidden, local gem!

Despite being a little hard to find, the Little Kitchen was well worth the hunt. It's tucked away in a small side street, behind a few homes, and you have to go up a few small flights of stairs to the terrace which overlooks most of the other buildings and trees in the area. Elba was so sweet and... read more

Great food at great prices! The food is all made to order, so be prepared to spend a little time, but is it worth it?!?!? Definitely!!!!

I tried this place based on the tripadvisor reviews. I overlooked the garbage piled up on the path to the restaurant. Also, overlooked the putrid smells. I just kept thinking that there must be something great up there at the top of the stairs. We waited three hours for our meal. We tried to order water or coke but we're... More

Our hotel was close to the split and we found ourselves going to The Little Kitchen several times while on Caye Caulker. The fish tacos were AMAZING - we had them twice. The corn hole game was fun to play while waiting for our food. We will go back on our next trip.

Really laid back place with friendly staff (and dogs)! The path to get there is really well signed - it is tucked behind and above some houses. The prices are reasonable with nice sized portions. It is almost entirely from scratch, so it is a bit longer of a wait for food.

Down a side road, turn right on a smaller road...walk the bike down a little path between some houses. Pass the dogs, up the stairs. Fantastic food, good rum drinks, nice views, mom in the kitchen. Loved it! Get the conch fritters.

The owner of our guest house suggested Little kitchen when we requested ideas for local food, It is not on the well lit beach strip but back in a local neighborhood setting so our flashlight came in handy. You will need to climb quite a few stairs to get to this small family run spot. The night we went we... More

Had good food but getting there is a bit difficult and quite dirty. Restaurant seemed clean but not surroundings. The drink did not have hardly any alcohol.

A little difficult to locate, but well worth the effort. My wife and I enjoyed the best conch fritters ever! Plus splitting the Creole conch meal, we left satiated and satisfied!! The whole snapper was given rave reviews also, but they were out on our visit. Maybe next visit!
