We loved our food at El Fagon. Do make sure to stop and try. The Key Lime pie was home made and yummy. Great food, Great People. That's Belize

“Absolutely Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We went here on our last night in Caye Ambergris. It was recommended by another couple that we had met earlier in the day! We were so glad we went here. We had the fish balls and orange(or mandarin) shrimp with coconut rice. They were both to die for! Even the vegetables mixed in with the shrimp were perfectly cooked. Best vegetables I have tasted. I had a rum punch and my man had a Belikin. Definitely recommend this place.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Our family had our first meal in San Pedro at El Fogon and we loved it. It is a nice small outdoor style restaurant with sand floors. The service was great. It took a long time for our entrees to come out but it was well worth it. The Mango Chicken Kabobs were one of the best things I ate during our whole trip to Belize. Absolutely delicious. My kids wanted to have lunch here again the next day. If we make it back to San Pedro we are definitely stopping at El Fogon

“A hit with the Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

El Fagon was were our family had our first meal in San Pedro. We were not disappointed. It did take a long time to get our food but it was well worth it. I can't remember what each of family members ordered but I ordered the mango chicken kabobs and they were amazing. My family wanted to go back the next day for lunch that is how much we enjoyed it. It is a little restaurant that is well worth the experience.
