the food was great, i am just not a huge fan of buffet style eating. however, the location at the top of a building gives a great view over the bay, the food is really nice, and the lime drink is a perfect compliment to the spices.

Super friendly service. The food was excellent and the lime juice....mmmm....can't get enough! The rice was so good! Sitting over the water with great view it is definitely a great placebo eat!

Marian is a very sweet woman who will create quite the spread of a family style meal if you call her in advance and see if she is free. We took a group of 15 or so to her restaurant and ate some of the best Belizean food for a very good rate. Very filling and delicious! Not to mention... More

We headed into Punta Gorda Town from Hickatee Cottages in a taxi and asked the driver for a recommendation for dinner. So happy to have asked since Marian's was her recommendation! We enjoyed choosing from a colorful array of Belizean and East Indian dishes which we devoured with gusto while gazing out over the water. Recommended!

Wow - the view and the food are a twin bill. The shade was welcome. But, really, it's the food. The lunch buffet was exceptional - a curried style fish dish, and several other unique local dishes.

Our first day in Punta Gorda and we were just getting acclimatized to the area. Although Marian's is only open for supper she invited us in for lunch. Very good East Indian food.

I enjoyed the buffet here, especially for the money. It was also good to be able to try many different dishes. The service is impeccable! Very friendly! I also loved their hot sauce and lime juice.

I had the best fried Snapper with an Onion Sauce and Rice and Beans.I ate as I sat looking over the Punta Gorda Bay which is a view of power. Make sure to ask Miss Marian for a bottle of her habanero Pepper Sauce which she makes and bottles from scratch.

Marian is a great cook, but not so keen on the cafeteria style set-up for lunchtime...but go at night and you know what you are getting is fresh, especially if you order shrimp or fish, which she will fry there and then! Great views across the sea, but the outside look of the building is a little eclectic!
