Service was super and so friendly. Food was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Pick from their seasonal selections. Menu is... read more

We had heard about Marian's but it took a bit of searching to find her. It located in the large grey concrete building on the water's edge.Look for the gate on the right side of the camper. We had our first meal there on Christmas day and she served us a great turkey and ham dinner with great sides. In... More

There aren't many places to eat in Punta Gorda, which makes this place a no brainer. The restaurant sits over the ocean and has great views. The restaurant itself is very quaint and is basically one room with a large outdoor deck area over the water. They have rocking chairs as a very nice touch 😀. The food was really... More

Marian's serves served cafeteria style. You state your choices while they fill from behind the counter. Very fresh, good Belizean food. Clean. Screened in 2nd floor looking out on the ocean provides a wonderful view and breeze.

This review is based upon Belize and Central American comparisons. My wife and I had two lunch and dinner with Marian. The restaurant is on the waterfront several blocks from the central park area of town. The restaurant is on the third floor a cement building and you actually dine on the roof. The building is not much to look... More

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.

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!
