Amazing lunch at a locals restaurant.

We visited Belize City as a cruise passenger. We chose to spend the afternoon with a horse and carriage ride thru the town and wondering the wonderful shops. Anna's Lunch Box was recommended to us by our driver. What an absolute delight! The lobster was fantastic as was the service, atmosphere and... read more

I was excited to try this place because of the high rating, but when I saw that it was in the main cruise disembarking area, I thought "maybe the cruise folks are to blame for the good reviews". The food is mediocre- expensive, and not very filling. Not long after we sat down outside, a man came over and sat... More

We were on our way from Belize City to San Pedro via the water taxi and decided to get breakfast on the pier. We chose Anna's because of the convenient location and the promise of local food. We ordered 45 minutes before our boarding time, assuming that we would have plenty of time to eat and get to the ferry.... More

If you are traveling to Belize and you are headed out to the cayes (islands) or arriving by cruise ship, chances are you are departing or arrive from the Brown Sugar Water Taxi Terminal. That is where you will find the local treasure, Anna's Lunchbox. The restaurant offers breakfast and lunch with a variety of local and American dishes. I... More

Stopping in the Bus/Boat terminal area for a layover, this was a good place to get some lunch. The Chicken Curry, Quesadillas and Hamburgers were all great

We ate here quite by accident. The staff is helpful and the food yummy. We had a lobster plate lunch of 3 ..yes 3...lobsters and 2 sides for 17.50. Add a local beer and for less than 20$ we each had a super meal.

We stopped here while waiting for the water taxi. We had the jerk chicken, rice & beans, with cole slaw. So far it's the best chicken we've had on our trip. Great seasoning! Also, our server was really friendly - gave us tips on where to sit on the boat and where to use the restroom before we leave since... More

Took my softball team to Belize, and had excellent catering service for our daily breakfast. The menu varied from day to day, which was great as my teammates got to experience the breakfast cuisine of Belize, and all at a very reasonable cost. Thanks

Had a great meal today. Had me some jerk chicken. Was not over spiced but the home made pepper sauce on the table added what was needed. Ms anna is very friendly. Love the service. Would recommend any day.
