“I ate GIBNUT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was told by the locals that I should try gibnut, sort of a Jungle rabbit indigenous to Belize. I heard Miss Dawn had it sometimes so I popped by and asked her, and she was unsure as "she never knows when the hunter is going to come by with some". Awesome. Anyways sure enough I checked in two days later and not only was she serving it, but she saved some for me so I didn't miss out!! I had the last plate of gibnut and it was amazing. I ate two meals at Dawns and I think its a must. Highlights: BBQ saturdays. Its as simple and delicious as it sounds.

“Oxtail are succulent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I love food! I am a foodie and can tell you that this place has great meals. If available try the oxtails or beef stew ( not the same as stew beef) it is sooooo good. The owner is friendly and knowledgable about local cuisine. She also has dessert!

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I ALWAYS order the burrito on a menu. It's the perfect food. The breakfast burrito at Dawn's made me question what I have been eating all these years. Yes, it's that great. Dawn has a great personality and is fun to visit. I also tried her smoked chicken and it was great.

“Great food and company - recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The cajun fish and garlic shrimp dinners were wonderful and we loved meeting Dawn and her daughter, who we'd spoken with earlier in the day at the tourism office. Highly recommended!
