“Gourmet in San Pedro, Belize”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

What a shock to find a trained chef (Judy Ann) and husband Tom operating a restaurant in San Pedro! Watch out for those great margaritas from Tom!
Even though the low season brings fewer customers, the Black Orchid offered wonderful lobsters accompanied by a 4 oz ribeye to our party. I had the grouper and it was terrific, but managed to sample my wife's lobster and beef. Desserts included carrot cake and chocolate cake. Super! Dolores was our server and she was attentive, quick to respond to all our needs. Nice selection of wines as well. Very nice looking restaurant and modern. They also serve iced water...others just give you a semi-cold bottle of water. Highly recommend.

“Excellent Grouper”

Celebrated my mother's 70th birthday with 13 family members and her friends who live on the island. They recommended this restaurant, and it definitely did not disappoint! Excellent food, everyone enjoyed their meal.

They were lovely at the Black Orchid, they accommodated our party of 15 for a birthday dinner. Everyone was so pleased with their food, I am sure we must have had everything on the menu.
Service was terrific, definitely worth a visit.

“Beautiful restaurant, great service, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Our party of SIXTEEN ate at Black Orchid and had a grand time. I should think it would be difficult to please so many people, but every single diner raved about their meals. The staff is excellent and Judyann and Tom made each of us feel welcome. They really outdid themselves!

“Another Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We ate our last dinner on the island here and we were not disappointed. I had a pan-seared fish, coconut rice and steamed vegetables. My wife had pasta. Food was really good.

Clean, friendly place for an enjoyable night out. (No ocean/beach views)
