Looks like a very simple cafe but the food was priced right and really tasty. Super nice staff and owner.

Ate here a few times. Food was delicious. My wife is vegetarian and they were happy to whip up something not usually on their menu. Very friendly. Great place to get information about heading to cayes or going on fishing/snorkelling trips

You'll get everything Belizean on the menu here, plus hamburgers, at a great value. This is the meeting place for all boat trips out to Tobacco Caye, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The ambiance could best be described as utilitarian but basically clean.

I was traveling with my boyfriend who doesn't speak/understand much English, and I have a slight hearing problem. So, the complete lack of menu was difficult for us as I had to hear and understand the waitress and translate everything she said. Also, as there was no menu, we have no clue what we should have been charged. She was... More

The fry jacks are great! Often they have fresh juice. Great value. Consistent good food. Coffee is nescafe. This is my "go-to-place" when in Dangriega. Nothing to look at from outside. right by dock where oen can catch a boat to Tobacco.

This place is impeccably clean from the rooftop dining area to the bathrooms. That's right, a honest to goodness clean bathroom! Don't waste time with other places this place is... More

Riverside Cafe is like going home from a long trip. The locals hand there, people that are going to Cayes or fishing gather there, MR. Egburt and Ms. Madeline are very gracious hosts. The food is always good.

The food was great...I had fried fish with coconut rice and beans and my friend had chicken with rice and beans. The owner Mrs. Maudeline Westby was very pleasant and provided us with great... More

Tried my first taste of garifuna cuisine at the riverside and it was fantastic. Tried two local soups, the deliciously sweet Hudut and the hearty bundiga. Also tried Madeline's house special fish fillet, cassava fries and rum, tomato and soy sauce. Madeline is also very helpful with information for travellers. She let me into the kitchen and we made a... More
