El Patio has the greatest poppers and Island chicken. The staff always makes me feel at home. See you next year!

“Awesome entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Live music, on a patio setting on sand! The watermelon drink was spectacular, and the service was prompt and courteous. The giant fountain added to the ambiance of local flavor, embracing the wonderful Belize weather. Other structures blocked the wind for relaxing dining. I don't know what they would do about a visiting young cat, since the restaurant is so open, but my daughter didn't mind at all. We were just careful not to feed it.

“They can handle large groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Seventeen of us had dinner in their patio area one evening. Groups that large can be challenging, but they did very well with the food and service. Extensive menu. All of us were satisfied.

“Not a good restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

This is our second time in San Pedro, and first time to this restaurant. We thought the food was very disappointing. The fish tasted old and reheated. The prices were expensive for this island. During our 11 nights here, it was by far the worst food that we had.

“good food, rather pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The food here was good. American prices rather than Belezian prices. There are many restaurants in San Pedro with really good food and prices more suitable. Many Americans are used to paying 24 dollars for a seafood meal. You can find the same for 12 if you look around.
