“Great place for lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We had lunch here a few times during our stay and always left happy. The Rainbow Grill overlooks the ocean and we always found a table with some shade. The coolness of the sea breeze adding to our comfort from the midday sun.

The service was always friendly and fast. The menu is varied serving up good value burgers, salads and mexican dishes as well as seafood.

We would certainly recommend having lunch here.

“Likely the best on Caye Caulker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Rainbow Grill is overlooking the ocean and benefits from its breeze. The food is excellent and the day menus are generally creative and good value for money. We ate there three times and were never dissappointed. The seafood is fresh. The lemon/meringue pie is the best on the island !The staff is friendly.
Except for wines which are overpriced, local drinks are reasonable

“Worst Meal in Belize”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Ordered blackened fish burrito, and it was tasteless. The waiter made some lame comment that someone ordered Jerk Chicken once and it was too spicy so they don't make their food spicy. The fish was very lightly seasoned, but clearly not blackened, it was bland. They took the burrito back, charge us for the sides, and we left.

The only reason we ate here is because it was the only recommended restaurant on the island by the catamaran (Lady Leslie). Should have ignored their recommendation and went to one of the top rated places by Trip Advisor.

“Excellent food and superb site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

We had lunch twice here and it was excellent. Shrimp quesadillas were the recommendation from another traveller and they were excellent. Daily special included a curry lobster burger which was very good and a Red Snapper fish burger which was superb.

This restaurant also is over the water on the beach with a palapa roof semi-outdoor structure. You can watch Egrets hunting fish in the sea grass over the rails.
