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 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.

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 the pricing is a bit... More

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
