Restaurant details
Description: The Yugadah Inn and Cafe has the best Garifuna cuisine for lunch and dinner in the village of Hopkiins. The Cafe is clean, seats about 25 people and has a nice array of tropical drinks. The fry fish and stew chicken are the BEST!! Rosie, the waitress extraordinaire, was trained at Journey's End in Ambergris Caye. Her sister is the chef and a chef extraordinaire. Make sure you try the authentic Garifuna meal but reservatiosn must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

I wanted to eat here so bad! Just last week (March 2013) this place converted to a pizza place. I was quite disappointed when we got to Hopkins to find the place changed. It took me walking into someone house (by accident!) to realize the change occurred. We were also notified of the change by the owners of our hotel... More

We loved our meal at Yugadah! It would be a 5 stars if her kid wouldn't have put her shoes on our table while we were eating... I had a fish fillet with a soy based sauce and "vegetable rice", rice with vegetables all cooked in coconut milk. Super tasty! You can actually see the owner cook your food while... More

Don't go here if you're in a hurry because everything at Yugadah's is prepared from scratch. We arrived late on a rainy night, the restaurant was empty, and the menu was full of chicken this and meat that (my family is vegetarian). So, of course, we started heading back out thinking that perhaps we'd risk one of the resorts up... More

We only ate here once and it was a good experience, good food and service, however, it wasn't our favorite place. Was told that this was the place to get wings at but never had the opportunity

My husband and five friends ate at Yugadah's last night. The experience is one that should not be missed! Rosie is not only a great cook(along with her sister) she is an awesome server and has a wealth of knowledge with respect to the Garifuna heritage and culture. Her stories and demonstrations come complete with artifacts passed down from her... More

My husband and I visited Yugadah's on our recent trip to Hopkins. The food is terrific and Rosie is fantastic (and her daughter is a doll!). Highly recommended.

It was always interesting to see if Yugadah (You Got To!) was going to be open when we went by. The food is very good and Rosie is a treat.

This place was awesome. The owner was hilarious and super sweet. She gave us the whole spill on all the specials and sat down with us to go over the menu. I ordered grapefruit juice and she picked the fruit right off of the tree in the backyard and squeezed it herself. Everything was so delicious.I had the shrimp and... More

Rosie and her family make you feel right at home from the minute you walk in the door. Rosie explains all of the dishes on the menu, so you know exactly what you are getting when you order. Everything is home made to order. It is just Rosie and her family cooking, so there will be a wait, but you're... More

No specific comments except to say that this place was great, and if you are interested in trying the local food, Yugadah's is the place to be.
