Tasty food is served at this friendly place with a nice outdoor seating. Lobster was very good and the restaurant will satisfy anyone except those after "excellency" which is pretty difficult to find in Belize. Service is efficient if there are a handful of tables but I can imagine it to lag if the restaurant was full.

Had lunch here and enjoyed the indoor/outdoor ambiance and the lunch prices were a good value. But, the fish was severely undercooked(ok it was raw) while the rice was really overcooked. I'm guessing they just popped it all in a microwave and it cooked unevenly. At the end, they charged me dinner rates instead of lunch so we had to... More

We nearby one night, so only had one meal at the Smoky Mermaid. I like spicey, but the chicken that night was very spicey even for me. Not usually this way from what I was told. The service was great, the atmosphere was very comfy out doors in a beautiful setting. I would go back. We were with a group... More

We went there for dinner one night and the service was slow, the food was not real good and way over priced. Very disappointed!

Good food and great atmosphere! Outdoor type setting, very romantic. A little higher end. Would be great for a date night.

Tucked away across from the Radisson in a garden with friendly and efficient staff and excellent food. A great place to escape after touring!

Ate there twice with a large group and fixed menu--rice and beans, chicken. Spaghetti another night. Atmosphere very nice, but the food was not what I expected. Chocolate cake was ok and a bit dry. Overall I wasn't impressed

We decided to have a Mother/Daughter Day. After having breakfast at Le Petite Café on the hotel grounds and some shopping in the surrounding area we decided to lunch there at the Smoky Mermaid. Worst decision ever! I get the outdoorsy feel they were going for but wrong execution. Having only a few covered tables out on a deck that... More

Food was well prepared and choices were varied. Beware of the mosquitoes which were present. The wait staff supplied mosquito smokers to each table. Also, the trees above tended to shed, but umbrellas helped to protect. Leave room for dessert.
