This was the best meal that we had in Belize. They were out of fish which seemed strange for a restaurant on the water, but the waiter recommended the burgers and steaks. Excellent choice. The burgers come in 3 sizes (up to 16 ounces) and were cooked perfectly. The bun was excellent and the Belikin beers kept coming. Service was... More

After a day traveling to the ruins at Altun Ha & The Baboon Reserve our tour guide Frank told us this was the best place to eat. The food was great, and the portions were generous. The drinks are awesome, and the service as fantastic. I highly recommend this place to the weary travelers.

We were there on our trip to Belize city. It looks like American concept. But it was clean and it has its own parking place in front of the restaurant. The food looked better than it tasted but we were finally glad that we ate something familiar in Belize city.

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
