Mixed Experience

We went to Fran's twice. Food was fantastic the first time and only mediocre the 2nd. Fran is very friendly and a great ambassador for Caye Caulker but often would wrangle in more people to eat than the tiny backyard BBQ could possibly accommodate in a reasonable amount of time - don't come here if... read more

Fran offers some great food from her grill - 2 rum drinks and desert for a great price. Definitely check it out!

Great place to go to people watch while you eat fresh local seafood. Shared picnic tables makes for a fun atmosphere. She gets busy quick and food is prepared to order, so if you're short on time, look elsewhere.

Amazing food, so delicious and excellent value for money. The food was so good, we ended up eating there almost every night.

Fran definitely knows how to get her customars. If you Walk past her tiny hut (that has a couple of Tables in Front of it) she gets to you and Talks as Long to you as it Takes to get You Inside- but it's totally worth it. I ate the best Shrimps of my life there, the rum wasn't that... More

Four of us wandered by after an evening full of stout and slap-shot (where you take a shot of rum and then get slapped? I think they made it up...) and Fran got our attention on the beach. Had an excellent dinner right on the beach with some excellent drinks and from what I remember a rather excellent dessert that... More

We really liked this place. Open with a cool atmosphere, where you can mingle as you eat your food. It was always bustling, provided it wasn't raining. The food was fresh, like many places on the island, and the simple pineapple coconut curry was very tasty. If the free rum punch doesn't float your boat, there is a supermarket across... More

The prices are great, you get your meal plus two rum drinks and a chocolate piece a cake for approximately $10 usd. It does take a while to receive your meal but it is worth the wait. Try the chicken. Definitely the best I had on the island. The surf and turf is big enough to share with another person.... More

This was the first place we stopped upon arriving in Caye Caulker! We were greeted by Mariom, a bubbly, sweet woman who gave us suggestions on what to order and quickly brought us Beliken's! All of the food was great as was the conversation with Mariom!
