Description: Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in our indoor/outdoor restaurant.The Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant's menu has both international and Belizean Cuisine featuring meats from our own family's ranch. A full menu of fresh tropical fruits, seafood, Mayan, Lebanese, and Belizean dishes are among some of our specialities. Our indoor dining area features a decor of rich, locally made mahogany furniture. The outdoor, terrace dining experience very often includes the visit of resident birds, including toucans that come to feed on nearby trees. This makes for a unique, and not to be forgotten, "dining with the birds" experience.

We took most of our meals in this restaurant during our stay at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel. Obviously it was convenient, but the main reason was that the food quality, service and setting were ideal for us. I especially loved the variety of birds and wildlife we saw from the beautiful outdoor patio dining room.

After reading favorable reviews about Running W, my husband and I decided to make it our last dinner before leaving Cayo. Running W is located right on the edge of San Ignacio next to the Pearl Casino (don't mind the armed guards...) As with any establishment in San Ignacio, the journey to get there is often bumpy and colorful. Running... More

This is one of the few resort restaurants you will enjoy the experience. Try the soup. How they can make carrot soup taste so good is beyond me. Try it. The service was prompt. Drinks delivered quickly. Food delivered hot. Prices are very affordable. You will enjoy this experience.

We had spectacular meals here and I was never sure I could possibly eat again by the time I was done. Definitely don't miss the shrimp poppers... I want to get those shipped home!

You could drive to the Running W Ranch where the beef is raised in about 5 minutes. That should give you an idea of how fresh these organic happy steaks are. Belizeans love to burn their steaks and cook them to a crisp. Go to Running W for American style juicy steaks.

I think I tried almost everything on the menu within 5 days and it's all good!! Appetizer not to miss - shrimp poppers in cocktail sauce! Boneless pork chops are fabulous if you don't want steak. Not a bad choice, that's for sure!!

Breakfast was very good... just the way we ordered everything. Lunch was pricey and the soups were a bit odd.

I was not staying at the San Ignacio resort hotel but ended up at the Running W Steakhouse because I asked downtown where I could have a decent steak. The Rib Eye was tender and tasty – reminded me how red meat tasted like, years ago. Asked for medium rare and it was impeccably prepared. The Chef (a very nice... More
