Great curry, friendly staff, a good find!

We had a lovely dinner tonight at Serendib Restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and our order came out quickly. Big portions, and yummy food. The chef has been there 14 years, so he knows what he is doing. We asked for mild as our bellys have been a bit delicate the last few days... read more

Had an upset stomach after eating the food here. There may have been something with one of the food items we ate.

All I had here were the drinks. If you're looking for a great value on alcoholic beverages I would recommend Serendib. Best spot is to sit in their courtyard, and it's lovely to be by the square at nighttime.

Awful food, weak drinks and super slow service. Positive reviews are undeserved for this place - recommend to skip it, as there are too many other good places to eat in San Ignacio

I must admit, we only came here for drinks! But the cocktails are very good - the bartender is great! - and there is a nice beer garden out back!

If you are around for Happy Hour, stop in here for an ice cold bucket of beers. The patio is a nice spot to sit and while away the afternoon/early evening.

We happened across this place in the afternoon and popped in or a beer and a cocktail. We received a very warm welcome and popped out the back to sit in the sun. We chatted to the young man behind the bar and it seems his family own this place and another up the road and that historically Serendib was... More

LOVE the burgers! Best in town! And for only $7 bz, even budget travelers should add the burgers to the 'must eat list! The only place I've found with quality Thai food in Cayo! Although the plates are a little pricey (for budget eaters), the flavor is fantastic! Great deals on drinks @ happy hour!
