Description: Our dishes are made fresh daily. We have a large variety of delicious seafood, beef, chicken and pork dishes. Our desserts are as special as our savory ones. We are situated on the beach in front of the Belize Water Express at the end of their dock. We cater to locals and tourist alike. We only create dishes of seafood that have been caught and delivered to us fresh from the local fishermen here in San Pedro and you may see them deliver this fresh fish to us while you are enjoying a refreshing drink or eating a meal from our kitchen. You can indulge in some fresh Sashimi or Poki Tuna while sitting here and enjoying a clear view of the second most longest Reef in the world only half a mile away. We do make fresh vegetarian foods as well for the customers that choose not to eat fish or any meats. Please note: We do take credit cards.

“Fabulous food & drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

You can't help but want to stop here, Mario the owner is at the front step to genuinely greet you. Mario makes great drinks....homemade drinks with fresh fruit and ice cream! We also had a fabulous lunch....Wow! Special kudos to Frank for making the best margaritas I've ever had (and I've had a lot)! Loved his special touch with the cute creature he made out of a lime for my drink!

“Great lunch n the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Dropped in for lunch when my wife had a mild recollection of a recommendation. The fish and chips were great, with a lovely tartar sauce. I also had a well stocked bar. The prices were good and the owner was friendly.

“Great grouper!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in for lunch. I had the blackened grouper sandwich and the Mister had a burger. It was the best cooked grouper I had on the island and quite tasty. The burger was quite good as well. Nice covered roof deck with a great view and convenient in town beach location. Service was a little slow, but not too bad. All around quite tasty.
