Excellent food and service

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 been to this establishment every single time I visit Belize. The food here is always cooked to perfection! 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

Overall great experience. I had the Crispy Fish Burger. Yummy. The ones that had the beef burgers enjoyed them greatly. There were no left overs. It was spacious comfortable and service very good.

I went to the Riverside Tavern on a recent business trip to Belize. Very nice place! Atmosphere is like a sports bar. Burgers come in 6oz, 10oz, and 16oz sizes. I ordered the small one, and I could sense the burger's weight; plus it was cooked to the exact term I ordered (médium, with pink center). My choice was the... More

food was good although a little expensive. Had a shrimp cocktail and a Vietamise spring roll and a local beer. $25. US plus tip. Mostly all locals, friendly, clean. They take credit cards.
