Fantastic Mr fish!

Loved their daily specials we are including twisted lobster! Very impressed with their sides also which included pumpkin, fresh veg and garlic mash which were all so tasty and good portions. Service was great and the girl behind the bar let me try the wine before buying, she was wry friendly.

Delicious and fresh. I am not a seafood lover, but loved the seafood I ate here! Asha and staff are friendly and informative. Higher end, but reasonably priced food and drink - meal with a "slow creeper" (alcohol drink) comes to about $15 US. Order at the counter, and they bring the food to table. Can sit inside the spacious... More

This restaurant is right on the sea front and has both indoor and outdoor seating (important to have the option in Belize!!). There is a great choice on the menu and lots of seafood dishes, I had the curry lionfish which was delicious! The place has a nice atmosphere, and the night we were there they had live drummers. I'd... More

A short walk from our hotels, Blue Belize & Coral House, recommended by the owner's of both. Food is very tasty, enjoyable, However, they are very short staffed, so be prepared for a very long wait until you are served. Twice, we arrived following a large group & they don't have the staff to handle it. It took over 1... More

We had a group of 12-15 people and every meal was fabulous. Very generous portions and the prices were crazy inexpensive. Dessert, why yes it was the last day of our vacation after all, amazingly yummy and large enough to share with half the table!

Asha's sits on the waterfront on the north edge of Punta Gorda, so its a great place to drink Belikin's, watch Pelicans, and eat all of the lionfish that your belly can hold. The best part about eating lionfish is that you are doing the reef a favor by devouring a nasty invader that would otherwise be killing off the... More

A night at Asha's won't disappoint with a great selection of sea food and salads, and the strongest rum drinks in town! Best place in PG for a seaside sundowner (even if the sun sets in the jungle)...

Pg is not endowed with haute cuisine... Which is part of its charm.... Ashas has to be one of the best dining experiences,... With local cuisine and a stunning venue, perched over the water. The service is excellent. We will go back there again.... And we are all besotted with the key lime tart. Save some space for that!
