We had our last dinner on this beachfront restaurant. It was a gorgeous night with a full moon and the waves crashing onshore with the locals playing a board game under a nearby palapa. There were two fish specials. One was snapper and the other they couldn't recall the name of the fish. Hence, I decided to try the "mystery"... More

Stopped in for a late lunch as we were very hungry driving from Belmopan and saw good reviews on TA. What a great place to find, right on the beautiful beach, so refreshing after a rough drive. My wife really enjoyed her fish with stew beans, and I thought the stew chicken was amongst the best I had in all... More

I have now made 2 trips to Hopkins in the last few months. I stay fairly close to Laruni Hatie, and found myself their once a day eating the same meal over and over. The fish with stew beans, rice and a small salad. The fish is usually fried, but if you request, she will grill it for you. At... More

We came across Laruni Hati driving around Hopkins and thought we'd check it out. We must have eaten here at least 3 times during our stay at Jaguar Reef in Hopkins. The food is really good there, especially the fish with green banana. She prepared the banana like potatoes with salt and pepper. It sounds weird, but green banana isn't... More

It's has a simple furnishings and decorum (with good pricing) and when I was there on a weekend partaked in lively conservation with locals as well as tourists. It's a place in Hopkins that is still off the beaten... More

We ate here twice during our week in Hopkins, one for dinner and once for lunch. Both meals were very enjoyable. Local fish and chicken with rice and beans in a wonderfully rustic setting right on the beach in the north end of Hopkins.

Great location and easy to find. Our food was tasty and the portions were good. It took awhile to get our food, but it was worth the wait. We had the fresh fish, and it was really good. Prices were reasonable also.

A rustic spot on the beach serving up some amazing food at great prices. My husband and son had the barracuda which was served as a steak and fried to perfection. I had the whole grilled fish and cleaned every morsel off the fish. Emma opted for the fish taco which was prepared with a fruity salsa that added a... More

Really looks and sounds like my kind of place. We followed some half-way directions from the UK tripadvisor, travelling each way from the police station, then asked some locals who shrugged their shoulders. I figure they were so inexpensive and delicious that they have closed up shop. If I am wrong I apologize.
