Tasty but pricey

This is a little overpriced, in my opinion. The dishes are American-style, and everything I have had tasted good.

Good food, good drinks, reasonable prices. This is one of my go-to places in Belize City. I have taken friends there for birthdays, celebrations, etc. Wonderful food- a nice variety of Belizean and North American offerings like salads, burgers, wraps, etc. Drink are well served with the alcohol- no skimping to save money! The outdoor patio overlooking the river is... More

This place is a very nice place with very nice but I don't advise you to order the mini burgers because sometimes the meat is under cooked and the virgin piña Coloda ( no alchahol ) is very nice

After spending the morning looking at houses in Belize City, we asked our Realtor to recommend a spot for us to have lunch. He dropped us here. The food was fantastic, and I must say, one of the best hamburgers I have ever had.... We received friendly service, and as mentioned in another comment, it was not speedy...but is was... More

So while in Belize cruising around on scooters stopped for a beer and burger. Good local place, burger was good, beer was cold and service was good as well. So when in town give it a try.

We had a family meal here in Dec 2015, seven people. The service left a lot to be desired! The waiters seemed over worked. Forgot to bring my wife's starter completely. Had to chase for drinks and then they forgot half of our order! The waiter walked off half way through taking our order, four of us were left without... More

I have been here a couple of times for lunch and dinner, it's a great location, nice and clean, reasonable selection of well cooked food but the service is really really slow even if you pre order. The other thing that annoys me is that they add a 15% service charge for groups of 4 or more people. The first... More

I took my wife out and we had two couples come along and the place was nice. Comfortable and friendly environment but service was i little slow. The food was good but the steak we had was a bit chewy. Prices are in the upper end of other choices but still a great visit.

Belize City turned out to be a little more third world than we expected... But this place was geared more for us American tourists. And although I usually try to experience the "locals" bars, this time I appreciated it! The local beer, Belikan is quite drinkable. We didn't eat, but the food smelled good.
