“Best Spot for Lunch on the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The menu is HUGE but you have to read it off a chalkboard inside. It includes breakfast served all day with both Belizean and American favorites. I love to go for "Brunch" since everyone can choose between breakfast or lunch options. If you arrive around noon, you can sit right on the beach and watch all the school children in their uniforms heading to home or vendors for their lunch hour. So fun.

I love the background music which can be anything from Patsy Cline to Frank Sinatra, popular standards and classic jazz. A very eclectic, fascinating place.

“Terrific breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

My husband and I went to Estel's twice in 1 week, because the breakfasts and atmosphere were so great. Beware, though--the fry jacks are incredibly addictive!

“Awesome food, beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We ate at Estel's every day for breakfast. The absolute best fry jacks can be found here. The family that runs the restaurant is so sweet and everyone is so accommodating. Everything I had to eat there was SO yummy. The view on the covered patio out back is just breathtaking.

“Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Estel is a lovely woman-we so enjoyed meeting and chatting with her outside of the restaurant. Her restaurant has always been one of pour favorites and I am so happy it opened up while we were there. She serves breakfast all day, it's right on the beach and on Sunday her musician was just spectacular. He set the right mood and ambiance, and I have to tell you he has some serious skills on the acoustical guitar. all in all a great experience, great value and those "home fries" were to die for-rockin delicious. Had to go back a few times when we were there.
