“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

There were 4 of us in our party and we had a great evening. Every item we ordered was great. The conch fritters are some of the best I've ever had. The fish balls were delicious as well. All fish items on the island are fresh catch so you really can't go wrong when you order them. It's a nice atmosphere, open air seating restaurant. Give them a try!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

We found this through yelp... And tried it for lunch the day we arrived. We sat outside on the covered patio. There was another couple there who we're making a return visit. Enjoyed the chicken stew, and the server was helpful. One of the best meals we had!

“A must ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This was another one of my favs and a big hit with the local crowd. The food is authentic and outstanding. Always fresh and reasonable. We left there full and with extra cash to spend. If you want local and yummy, this is the place.

“Great Belizean food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Located in the heart of San Pedro, El Fogon slow cooks their dishes all morning so they are incredibly tender when served.
The sand floor and "picnic" motif adds to the ambience, as does their friendly staff!
