“Mediocre AND Pricey!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I ordered fajitas and a cold beer for lunch here. I did get a nice, icy cold beer but the "fajitas" were small, overcooked chicken nuggets, sliced carrots, zucchini and onions sauteed in lots and lots of SOY SAUCE.

While the cultural blending in the kitchen was amusing, the food was dreadful. Compared to other Caye Caulker restaurants the prices here are quite high, especially for drinks.

“Very nice fish & veggie food - but dodgy drinks, and slooooow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We went for a couple of meals here and liked the food but the service was slower than slow and the drinks weren't great. The first fish meal we had here (from the specials menu) was very, very good. There are also lots of veggie options which were nice. The service was slow but not so slow as to put us off a second visit. Our second time the food was still tasty but the service was glacial. And don't order the gin and tonic if you want anything that tastes like gin, or tonic - beer is a better option.
The food here is good and the atmosphere is nice with fun swing seats at the tables and bar. Just don't show up tired or feeling too hungry or you'll find the service hard to bear.

“Yummy dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Food and service were good. It's a cute place with swings as chairs all around the bar area. Had the catch of the day, red snapper, creole style was delicious. Prices are not so bad. My dinner plate was $22 Belize price which was around $11 US. Great view of the island.

“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

It us our first time to caye caulker and this turned into our favorite place to eat. The food is really good and the view right by the water is great! Kick off your flops and dig in your toe in the clean sandy floor!
