“Manatee Outlook Restaurant and so much more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Jameel, Jameel, Jameel, a restaurant genius and more. Laid back, easy going, but dynamic and so unique here in Belize. His Lebanese tubule garnish, humus, flat bread, with Lamb, chicken, or beef kabobs are to die for. The scenery on the river, the restaurant and bar, serenity packaged. If you lived in Ladyville or anywhere near it, this would be your "hangout" place. It doesn't get any better than this. The service is personal, flexible, and first rate. And the food is so flavorfull and delicious that you will be looking up Lebonese Kabob recipes on Google. Jameel says that if you don't constantly improve what you are doing in this business you will be out of business! We have been in Belize recently for 5 months and have been coming down for over 5 years. Will be moving into the Ladyville area in March. We have been into the Manatee outlook only 3 times and just met Jameel this last time. He doesn't owe us anything and we don't owe him anything, except honest praise for a very great attitude, location ambiance, and really great food.

“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

I had never had Lebanese food before but the Manatee Lookout has turned me into a fan. The food was great and the people were very nice.

“Eat it Up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

One of our favourite spots to stop coming to or going from Belize City. Great location although parking is a bit limited. The food is excellent (Lebanese options), and the service is great. The staff are friendly and always have big smiles. You can dine inside (but sounds echo loudly here) or on the waterfront or in the courtyard - lots of options. The site also boasts cabanas and a bar or two. The owner is very friendly and easy to talk to. And get a load of all the trophies hanging on the walls. Oh and yes, Manatees can be seen (occasionally) from this location. The facilities are on the Belize River and dozens of tour boats roam up and down in search of the elusive Manatees - so you can be quite busy waving to all the smiling tourists while you eat. Enjoy.

“Went above and beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We were on our way to the airport after a fabulous week in Belize and happened on Manatee Lookout Restaurant. They were not quite open yet that day, but still went out of their way to accommodate our rather large group, including some boisterous children! Beautiful view, awesome parrots, and delicious food. I highly recommend it.
