Some nice vegetarian items plus food your meat loving pals will love

The veggie options are very tasty!! The devil potatoes are BOMB!! It's nice to have this place as an option on Burns, esp when you sit on the back porch ... away from the hustlers trying to sell you this and that.

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!

Dont usually review restaurants but the food here is excellent. A good selection, offering excellent burgers and fantastic Sri Lankan meals.

I came here with a large group to watch the entertainment which was fun. We got hungry and ordered a bunch of appetizers, all of which were really only sub-par. The drinks were good, though I don't think any of us would have complained if they weren't since we were in good company. We decided to come back and eat... More

I highly recommend sitting on the patio out back for dinner, and looking out over the square. The food was decent, but the atmosphere is great.

Probably serve one of the best stewed chicken, rice and beans in the area. The grilled red snapper was also very good. We sat outside on the back patio and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Service was a bit slow but worth the wait! We will definitely return.

When I first started to eat at Serendibs 2 years ago I absolutely loved it. The food was fantastic, Letty the cook was amazing along with the rest of the staff. Even the owners at the time were wonderful and made sure not only their customers were happy, but also took great care of their staff. However, it is now... More

This restaurant used to be amazing, sadly after being sold that is no longer the case. I'be been in there twice after the change in owner and both meals were horrible. I thought maybe the first time was just an off day so I gave it another shot and round two was so much worse. If I didn't have so... More

We only stopped for a cup of tea and a snack, but the coconut sambol was really, really delicious. We sat at an outside table, and it was nice to watch people strolling along Burns Ave.
