This place is smack dab in the middle of the main drag, so be prepared for traffic and some competition among local restaurant owners vying for your business. The food was so good we went back twice for cheap, cold beers and absolutely delicious food. The chicken and the fish were both amazing. Sit outside for good entertainment while you... More

I had a great lunch here with basic Belizean food, typical lunch, if I remember black beans, fried bananas, rice, etc. Wish I could remember what the order actually was, but I liked the ambiance, casual meal, and taking my time. The staff had a "what me worry" attitude, but was served fine and felt comfortable. Inexpensive.

My second visit in a year to Flayvas for breakfast was once again a wonderful experience. Love sitting out on the patio in the morning enjoying my coffee and the friendly chat with the owner and staff. Food was once again great... perfectly cooked omelette and excellent fry jacks. A great choice in my book!

There should be a sign out front: Lousy food, bad service. We'd just arrived in San Ignacio and made the mistake of eating here. The sign out front actually says, Eva's, not Flayva's but it's the same place. The service was EXTREMELY slow in fact they finally brought us 3 of our meals and never brought the fourth until we...

Good spot for drinks and people watching. Bad for everything else. Traditional tourist fare - overpriced and the same as everything else on Burns avenue. Try Martha's Kitchen or Elvi's kitchen instead...this place really has nothing to offer...

We ate both breakfast and dinner here and the food was good. The service, however, was extremely slow both times we ate there. We had a tour to go to and decided to grab breakfast before hand, it took over an hour and we had to take our meals on the van. Not ideal. For dinner this was fine as... More

My stuffed fry jack was rather doughy. My wife had the standard Belizean breakfast, which was just that: standard. The atmosphere was cheery, staff was ok, we were pitched for a tour while we waited. We probably wouldn't go back.

Upon first arriving in San Ignacio we stubbled upon Flayva's Bar and Grill and decided to stop and have lunch here. We ordered some burritos and beers. The beer was cold and food was fine but nothing very special. The service was courteous.

During a recent trip to Belize, I ended up spending a fair amount of time at Flayva's because of the good music, free internet, and interesting array of characters - both locals and tourists - that flowed through and around the restaurant. In addition to soaking in the the great vibe, I loved getting coffee and having a breakfast burrito... More

We started each day with a plain omelette as breakfast here. Very friendly people. At night sometimes drunk people came annoying us, but the lady/manager sent them away, she took care of her guests. Though sometimes it was really busy and there was not enough staff to handle all orders, people had to wait for more than an hour for... More
