Definitely unique (and good food)

We liked our time and meal here, but I can understand while some people aren't so impressed. Go into a meal with Fran with an open-mind and I bet you'll enjoy it. It's no doubt one of the unique meals we had while traveling. Fran has a little charcoal grill and a small hut that she produces all of... read more

Frans seems to be a but of a legend on the island! The food is superb and the atmosphere is great. Lobster grilled on the beach, rum and pineapple and a reasonable price.

Fran can sell you the deal - lots of rum with pineapple, grilled shrimp with three sides and chocolate cake, all for just $25 BZ. Sadly, the reality is less rosy. There is very little rum in your drink; they promised top-ups which never materialised. The main was nice but not a lot of shrimp, a small portion of lukewarm... More

There really is no other word to describe it. As a group of 16 we thought we were getting a great deal for 20BLZ for a meal with meat, 2 sides and unlimited rum punch however we were so wrong. After an hour and a half waiting our food arrived but I wish it hadn't. It consisted of 2 slices... More

We walked past Fran's many times and she was always inviting us to sit down. There's just a few benches and so you just squish in wherever you can. We ordered the only 2 things she had which were lobster and honey glazed barbecue jerk chicken. Both came with 2 sides and rum punch. The food takes along time but... More

Fran called us in, and we had a great dinner. All meals came with a pineapple rum drink. The garlic bread! Oh so good! And three thick slices of its crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside goodness. Curry shrimp with rice was excellent, and the prices were right.

Fran is probably the top saleswoman on the island and knows how to sell you a deal. The thing is it's always the same deal for everyone, $25Belize Dollars and yes you get a free piece of chocolate cake with that! The food is fine but not amazing unlike her competition, Terry who is sometin of a maestro with Jerk... More
