It was okay

We stayed at The Great House two nights and ate at the Smokey Mermaid both times. The first meal experience was great, the food was awesome and beer was cold. The second night we ate there the food was kinda lacking (my catch of the day was EXTREMELY dry and rubbery) and the service was eh...I'm... read more

It was fair. We had breakfast there with friends and for about $10 US you can get a fairly normal US breakfast. Sadly it is average. You can walk down the street about 2 blocks and get about the same breakfast for $6 US. The bugs were bad in the morning and the waitress was not very helpful. She tried... More

We ate inside on a rainy night. Visited twice during our stay. Once for cold beer with great service. Second time for nachos and a burger. Food was good - above average for a hotel. Drinks and service were good again.

So many mosquitoes as soon as I'd ordered. Thought staff was slow and inattentive. Food, though okay, was priced too high for its value. Won't go back.

Food was OK but bland and not prepared very well. There are better choices in Belize City. Has great atmosphere but need help in the kitchen.

IT is located in the Radisson Hotel and was able to handle over 45 people at a quick clip. Meals were pre-ordered so that helped; however servers were responsive to the needs of individual diners. Serving sizes were more than adequate- one of the few places who provided decent sized servings in all of our Belizean adventures.

After a week aboard a dive boat, our table next to the garden coutyard would have been treat enough. But when the food arrived, it more than matched the setting. Except for one of our party who had chicken alfredo, all five of us ordered shrimp. In every case, the shrimp was cooked to the point of perfection. Coming as... More

Food seemed to be standard prepared food you could have bought at a grocery store. Bottled sauce, breaded fish sticks. So close to the sea and they're serving Gorton's fish sticks. Was quite pricey due to the location. We were disappointed.

We enjoyed a delicious fish dinner and the opportunity to see old friends at this popular restaurant. I have never had a bad meal. Recommended.

Our first dinner in Belize. Fish tasted old; skimpy veggies. Maybe they were having an off night (Tuesday) but we found Celebrity to be much, much better.
