This review is for Ali Baba in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. It is not located in San Pedro Colombia in Toledo District, which is where TripAdvisor has it listed. I asked TripAdvisor to correct this error, but it has not been done yet. When we entered, our table had two hookahs, which the waiter (who I think is also the owner) quickly removed. Ali Baba is right on Coconut Drive and from our table in the front room, we could smell the strong exhaust from the numerous golf carts passing by. Our order was quickly taken, but it took well over an hour to get our food, even though there was only one other couple in the restaurant. My daughter ordered the vegetarian platter, which was supposed to come with baba ganoush, but they substituted a small scoopful of rice without telling us they didn't have baba ganoush. The exact same thing happened to the other couple in the place. Since the falafel platter (which is the vegetarian platter minus the baba ganoush) cost $5 less than the veggie platter, the scoop of rice cost $5. Really??? The waiter didn't even have the decency to ask us if we wanted to order something else. Instead of apologizing, he started getting defensive and was quite rude. The food was mediocre. The falafel tasted like it was microwaved. When the waiter asked us how our meal was, we said the service was incredibly slow. He insisted that he had 50 take-out orders, which was clearly a complete fabrication. We had many delicious meals in San Pedro. This was NOT one of them. Eat here at your own risk!
