Nice place, great food

The place is nice, has a great variety of drinks and liquors, and the music and people makes it a good options to have some drinks. The fried scampi appetizer is tasty, good and nicely cooked pasta as well. If you sit out in the terrace there might be some unpleasant smells from the river.

Superior design with central 4-sided bar and outdoor patio. Use of wood is spectacular. Black bean soup and pan-fried grouper were tops. Will return for a repeat. Service is outstanding with Leroy taking the lead. Owner Dustin spent time with us serving up fascinating family history, culinary tips and most interesting information on the city and his country. Truly enjoyable... More

Very inviting atmosphere. Service is very professional. Appetizers of onion ring tower and firecracker shrimp were wonderful. Rib-eye steak was amazing!!! Tender, juicy, and flavourful. Cocktails were refreshing and great also. Highly recommend this r3staurant after 2 visits.

I ate there once during a visit to Belize City for medical reasons. The food and the service was excellent. Frequented by ex-pats as well as locals. Great menu and bars

I've had the filing mignon ordered medium and it has always been cooked perfectly to what was specified. Their shrimp ceviche is the best I've ever tasted and my Favorite appetizer is their nachos. Homemade tortilla chips covered in melted cheeses,... More

This is a popular restaurant along the Belize River. Sit outside if weather permits and watch the boats go by in the evening. They offer multiple shrimp dishes that always are wonderful. Try the local Belikin beer! On my last visit they were working to arrange for some local game meats to be supplied from a local farm. I wish... More
