fantastic service good food

I never expected to get 5 star treatment like this in San Ignacio. The chef came out the table to discuss his dishes and recommendations... don't second guess the chef, everything he recommended was fantastic! And service was second to none.

I had the fried fish, which was good, my partner had beef which was unfortunately overcooked. The highlight was the desert called "Mayan temple" i think. Ice cream, tortilla dough, fruits, chocolate - Bomb! Located in a side street, it was really empty when we went - so ambiance was meh Recommended by our taxi driver...

This is a great local spot with lots of local charm and a fairly deep menu. It's a block or so off the main tourist avenue, which makes it a nice quiet location. The one small drawback was the barking dog at the residence across the street from Erva's. That's certainly not their fault, but it does detract a bit... More

I had the Belizian Stew. Let me tell you.. that was some of the best stew I have ever had! This is a nice little place, open concept so you can watch your meal being prepared if want to. There was a butterfly flying around the restaurant, which made our Belizian experience even more surreal. I fell in love with... More

Place visited by locals and tourists. The food was good and the prices average. We went there twice and enjoyed a lot. The terraza is very pleasant at night.

We had to try Erva's out after having it recommended to us by the lady running the guest house we stayed in and then meeting Guermo (sorry if I'm spelling your name wrong) at D Catch one evening while watching a concert. We were so glad we went!! My husband tried Guermo's special that evening which was an amazing fish... More
