Great local cuisine

We reserved ahead for the hudutu and it was well worth it. For our last night in Hopkins we wanted to try this local dish which is mashed plantains with fish served in a coconut fish broth. Both my husband and I loved it, so we would highly recommend it.

We had several meals here, the fish was tasty. A nice spot on the beach to relax with a cold beer. If you can try her Hudut, it was great too. We had it at the drumming centre.

It was our destination for a Sunday night dinner. And well worth the adventure to the northside of the village! Miss Marva cooks up some seriously good food, while her husband Orlando keeps some cool beats playing as we sit with our toes in the sand. Cold beers and great conversation carried us beyond to enjoy a night of karaoke... More

I love to eat local everywhere I go. Hopkins is a jewell for local Garifuna food. Laruni Hati is no difference. Good people, good food

We ate here for lunch, and found she has the coldest beer on the beach! Wer had great lunches here - quesadillas, burritos, lobster, pork with rice and beans, and wonderful fried fish - I mean the whole fish, head and all, minus the guts! It's looking back at you on the plate! We have had fish prepared like this... More

Laruni Hati is a beachfront thatched roof patio serving a limited menu of local cuisine. We really enjoyed the fried fish and stew chicken entrées, both with stewed beans and rice. A special delicacy are the fried plantains, and especially the fried green bananas. Both come hot out of the oil, but the fried green bananas have a sweetness delicacy... More

Didn't stay for dinner, but had the best Pina colada of my life - actual real pineapple bits and perfect sweetness. Great location right on the beach.

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

A good good place with warm company and marvellous Marva is training her daughter! With a beautiful water views There is only outside eating. Art work on the walls is by her talented brother. I heartedly recommend this spot to chow down and soak up local flavour
