We had drinks and appetizers at this place since we really had nothing planned at this port. Since is was a blistering hot day, we decided to relax here. I had been here before but not in this spot. I had gone to the upstairs part of the restaurant. The view was nice and they had cold local beers for... More

This is a great little bar on the pier. Fun, relaxing environment. We had the special which was grilled lobster with beans and rice. Really tasty! Salsa was great! Service was a little slow - but who cares - you are in the Caribbean!

As soon as I saw the Wet Lizard I knew we were going to eat there. It is a quaint place, up stairs, and the view is fabulous, in fact better than that. Remember to get a seat on the wall and listen to the music from down below. So here we are in Belize with the opportunity to try... More

We stopped here because my sister and her family had a liked it. We had cokes and ordered chicken and fish tacos. The chicken tacos were yummy but the fish tacos were really fishy in taste and not good. We did get to use the internet. Enjoyed sitting here.

Sorry to hear you didn't like your fish tacos. We get fresh snapper delivered daily, and I check it personally so it is fresh. Could be some unusual spices we use here, but on your next visit, we will make sure you enjoy everything.... thanks for stopping by and see you again soon. Laura More

Had local beer which was good and cild, and a Mexican - like dish that reminded me of sopes. TO DIE FOR! Would love to know what it was called so I can try to find a recipe to duplicate here at home in Michigan. Great view, great service! Thank you.

After spending the day in Belize we wanted to have a bite to eat and a drink while waiting to go back to the ship. The atmosphere is great sitting out by the water and the food was really good.

Husband and I stopped in at the wet lizard after being recommended this place from a frequent flyer on the ship. Quaint and neat little place. We sat upstairs and loved the view. We were waited on by one girl on less than five minutes of sitting down. Another girl came by another five minutes to make sure we had... More

Well, I am sorry you thought we were just average, and that you compare our nachos to stadium nachos. Some people like stadium nachos actually, but we flavor our meat, the cheese has extra added spices, and creaminess to it, and it is topped with out homemade salsa, which we can't keep enough of because people are always taking it...

Wanted to sit, relax with a cold drink, and use the internet. Was told internet was available, but after ordering the drinks could not log on. Disappointing and did not stay to eat. Wish you could check for wifi first, but I understand that it is for customers only.

Thanks for stopping by, I am sorry about the internet but it is not a Wet Lizard issue, it is a Belize internet server issue. We are at the mercy of the server. Sometimes it is great and full speed and others it is sporadic. I hope that our guests understand we are a full service bar and restaurant first,... More

Sitting right on the water was nice (even though the closer you get to Belize City, the cloudier the water becomes). We stopped in Belize City on a cruise, and we wanted to eat somewhere local for lunch. My husband had a watermelon juice/rum drink, and it was very tasty. We also had a giant plate of nachos that were... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write your thoughts of your visit to The Wet Lizard. Yes, the water gets a little brackish due to the waters flowing from the rivers inland out to sea, but the views are still beautiful, glad you enjoyed it. We make our watermelon juice fresh daily, and the added touch of rum... More

I am so glad that stopped in. Yes, since it is a port of entry, when a visitor is not coming from a tender, you must present ID etc. to enter the port. I am glad that you enjoyed your crevice and your time with us. That is definitely one of my favorite dishes and we are always trying to... More
