Cute and Tasty

We lucked out and arrived here when it was virtually empty of guests. So we were promptly served by a sweet smiling young lady. We ordered light fare, soup, salad and a burger (wow eh!). Not bad, actually pretty good but nothing to get excited about. The ambiance is quaint - almost garden like but... read more

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.

This is a nice outdoors patio type restaurant. The menu was varied and the food was tasty. The help was friendly. It is right across the street from the Radisson Fort George.

I was invited for a night cap by a friend. The piniacolada was very nice, served with a smile. The waitress was very friendly and courteous and very pleasant. The outdoor was like a garden but we had to go indoor because it was raining cats, dogs and elephants. All in all I still had a great time enjoying the... More

Stayed at the Great House for a family vacation and ate breakfast and dinner at the Smoky Mermaid multiple times. Their traditional Belizian dishes are incredible. I'd highly recommend trying the "ceviche smash". The service was quick, all of the staff were very friendly, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was beautiful. The Smoky Mermaid is a must if... More

The place reminded me slightly of Pat O'Briens in New Orleans with the open seating in-between the brick walls and the large white house. That is where the similarities end. The food was good and the service was enjoyable. It is in a nice area of town.

The interior of the restaurant is quite lovely...very tropical. I was with a group and the meal was pre-planned, so I didn't get to peruse the whole menu. We had fish and shrimp, which were quite good. The beans and rice were so-so and the key lime pie was delicious.

The tomato bisque was incredible. We also had the snapper, and the curry seafood mix. All good but the bisque took the cake. OK atmosphere. Strange that they have plastic chairs and tables.
