Great Food at Fantoni's Kitchen

Chef Cleeve makes wonderful entrees and they taste wonderful! We had fish when we were there and it was very tasty. I would highly recommend this spot for a nice intimate dinner in Maya Beach.

After reading about Fantoni's on Facebook and Trip advisor we decided that this would be the place to get my friend a birthday cake while on vacation. They were very helpful on the phone and had it made the following morning. We chose a chocolate peanut butter cake and it was amazing. Nothing but the freshest ingredients here. All mad... More

Great freshly cooked meals which you can order to go. There's a menu on Facebook and Cleeve will cook you specialties to order. Just like Momma makes - but only if she's a cordon bleu chef!

This place was recommended by a friend and my husband and I were not disappointed. Quite, away from the crowds and personal service just for two. It was the romantic evening my husband and I were looking for, just us two. Cleeve cooked us baked snapper with garlic mash potatoes and sautéed veggies and coconut pie for dessert. Upon our...

While renting a home in the Maya Beach region on the Belizean peninsula called Placencia, I was very fortunate to find that two houses over I had my very own chef preparing meals with TLC! Since groceries were limited in this location at the single store within an easy bike ride, even with a full kitchen at my rented house... More

My husband and I are "frequent tourists" in Maya Beach and just recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary (with 15 family members!) while in Belize. My husband and I wanted to provide our families an authentic Belizean meal as part of our celebration and we engaged Cleevey to cater the meal. I have to say it was one of the... More

We made a last minute reservation at Fantoni's Kitchen and were treated to a beautiful and tasty Chicken tikka masala. This was probably the most authentic tasting curry I have eaten in Belize. Well done Cleevey - keep it up. Dessert was Fudge covered Green Apples - Mmmmmmmm, enough said. We shall be back.

We have tried almost every authentic Belizian restaurant in Placencia over the past 7 years and now Fantoni's Kitchen is taking things to a new level! Cleevy is certainly the talent in the kitchen while Marco provides the freshest sea food caught while spear fishing off a nearby caye as well as the entertainment. Seating is limited like every restaurant... More
