Belizean Flavors

If you want to be dinning right next the Caribbean place this is the place to be. Food is excellent, service is good. recommend it to anyone wanting to have food that has Belizean flavors in it.

Food here was akin to pub food, not sure what makes it Caribbean on other reviews, but it was ok. Service was very slow. And you'll need to get a taxi here at night. If this is the best for Belize City food, then I would order take in and save yourself the trouble.

Only reason I'm not giving this open-air restaurant 5 stars is because they were out of so many food items! I couldn't get several choices, and had to settle for something I didn't really want. Maybe they were out because of all the customers they had---they were packed! My friend got the local soup called "Sere", which has a coconut... More

Belize City is crazy, but luckily our cab driver recommended the Bird's Isle as a place to stop and have lunch before we headed to the airport - a lovely restaurant with delicious food and great drinks.

Food was good. Not great. Sits near the sea but water is brackish and not very inviting. The drive to this restaurant can be a tat disconcerting as it goes through some questionable looking area. Taxi diver warned us not to be fearful though it was ok. The restaurant itself looks safe, not going back.

Great local place! Amazing food, friendly staff, nice location right on the water. I had the fried chicken breast and beans & rice, and it was great. A TON of food for US$5.

Here is a restaurant owned by the YOUNG family that sits under a Palapa on the Caribbean Sea. The ambience is great and they serve good food, especially Belizean dishes at amazingly low prices. It is actually my restaurant of choice on a Friday or Saturday for lunch and my favourites are the RICE & BEANS, and COWFOOT SOUP. However,... More
