We ate here several times during our stay because it was close to the drum center. The food was very average. The pricing was very reasonable which kept us coming back.

Had a great dinner here on a calm, clear, quiet evening. My Moon guide book says this is the only beachside restaurant in Hopkins owned by a local (Garifuna) woman. I loved being able to eat outdoors and look out at the sea right there. Can't wait to go back and have more meals there. This is not fast food.... More

Imagine, you're walking on the beach on a sunday around lunchtime and all of a sudden the sea breeze blows the smell of delicious food in your nose. Locals are gathered around tables and they feast on delicious dishes like grilled fish, chicken, fajitas...Don't resist, you've found Laruni Hati, just sit down, order a cool beer, wait for your food...

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
