I went to Asha's several times during my stay in Punta Gorda and enjoyed every meal. The food was delicious with a wide variety of choices. The cobia fillet, lionfish fingers and twisted lobster were all really tasty. There was also a large range of sides- I recommend the plantains! The atmosphere was great and the restaurant itself was so... More

I went to Asha's a few times during my stay in Punta Gorda in August. It has a beautiful setting over the water and has a great atmosphere. Make sure you try the lionfish fingers while you are there. Not just do they taste great, but you also support the local lionfish spearing programme as they are an invasive species... More

Large portions, low price, but the lobster was tough . . . but given that it was large, and cheap, it was a good value.

We were served delicious red snapper and our first taste of lion fish as we watched the waves roll in under the decking of the restaurant's floor. The Asha's seaside location guarantees a fresh breeze. The food was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. We enjoyed the food, the music, and the view. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Wonderful food and great atmosphere! Right on the water, so you can sit with a Belikin and enjoy the view and the breeze. I recommend the fish curry.

Not only was the food a delight, so was the staff. The lobster was the best I had in all of Belize. I came back to Asha's several times and was never disappointed. I ate at other places in Punta Gorda but none could compare to Asha's. Don't even bother going anywhere else.

The seafood are fresh and portion very generous. I had the steamed red snappers and they gave me two! They also have a local band and they are the perfect complement to the food and cold local beer.

I would come to Punta Gorda just to eat at Asha's! Paid a reasonable price for the best lobster I've ever had! Service and location are outstanding. This restaurant is off the beaten path but well worth a little extra effort to get there! Beautiful ocean view! Amazing atmosphere! We will eat there again!

What can I say? Our group (14 people) was scheduled to eat at Asha's for one night during our four night stay in Punta Gorda. After our first dinner, there was a daily "cry" for Asha's. So, we ate at Asha's several more times - breakfast and dinner meals. If you are in Punta Gorda or surrounding area....don't miss out... More
