Food was good, a little slow, but filled the bill. Prices were moderate and staff very accommadating. Bar is right there and the local beer was good, other drinks as good.as well. The restaurant is a large open patio style with many old trees, indigenous to Belize allowed for atmosfear, and shade during the day and cover at night. Fine... More

I really wanted to like this place. The ambiance was great, sadly that was all it had to offer. The waitress couldn't (or wouldn't) answer our questions and that should have been a sign. I felt like I was imposing. She spent most of her time sitting at the bar chatting with someone else that was sitting there. I was... More

While staying at The Great House, the hotel just above Smoky Mermaid, we found this restaurant to be very convenient and it did not disappoint! As soon as you pass through the front doors and although we were below our hotel, we were surprised to walk into a beautiful rainforest on an outdoor terrace. The ambiance felt romantic and private,... More

The ambiance of the Smoky Mermaid was great, the decor was fitting to the Caribbean theme, and the food was tasty (albeit slightly overpriced). The servers who "helped" us gave the attitude that we were inconveniencing them by dining there. After being told that we could sit wherever we wanted, our server merely took our order and our plates, without... More

We walked here from the Radisson since we were tired of eating at the Radisson haha. I thought the food at the Radisson was mediocre, but this place....well, it was worse and we had to wait FOREVER. I had a cheeseburger and to be honest, how could that be bad? Well it was and I think they used kraft singles... More

It was a long wait and when we finally got our food it wasn't very good. I would recommend going here if you are just too tired to try and find another place and don't really care what you eat.

My husband and I flew in last night and after walking around Belize City for an hour and then grabbing dinner, we went to the Smokey Mermaid for drinks. First of all, this bar was great because it's attached to our hotel, so that was the main reason we chose it. We were pleasantly surprised when we sat down because... More

We stayed at the Great House for a few nights and this was the first restaurant in Belize we went to. The atmosphere is lovely. It's a beautiful outdoor garden setting. The bugs in the evening though are atrocious. My ankles made a lovely meal for the small black flies that are abundant. The food was not good. My husband... More
