Description: Fantoni's Kitchen is a home operated small business. That caters to those looking for a quiet place to relax and enjoy the non-antics of the busy world with great food & desserts to soothe the taste buds. We are tucked away in Maya Beach on the Placencia Peninsula on the lagoon side, with a peaceful view of the lagoon and beautiful mountains in the west. We offer a very small menu of items for Dinner and we try to cater to our guest needs of personal service and that great Belizean hospitality that you all hear about Dinner is served from 6pm - 9pm. We ask that you make reservations for dinner a day in advance as we do not take walk -ins due to the fact that we have limited seating. Also we have a BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze) Policy. However we can have a bottle of something for you chilling in the fridge. We welcome you to try our delectable items.

Chef Cleeve makes wonderful entrees and they taste wonderful! We had fish when we were there and it was very tasty. I would highly recommend this spot for a nice intimate dinner in Maya Beach.

“Made with love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

After reading about Fantoni's on Facebook and Trip advisor we decided that this would be the place to get my friend a birthday cake while on vacation.
They were very helpful on the phone and had it made the following morning. We chose a chocolate peanut butter cake and it was amazing. Nothing but the freshest ingredients here. All mad from scratch. The cake turned out perfectly moist and was so huge that we were able to enjoy it for days.
I highly reccomend anything from Fantoni's. They use only the freshest ingredients and it is evident that they put the love into their work.

“Wonderful culinary experience. You can order to go!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Great freshly cooked meals which you can order to go. There's a menu on Facebook and Cleeve will cook you specialties to order. Just like Momma makes - but only if she's a cordon bleu chef!

“A new idea for dinning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This place was recommended by a friend and my husband and I were not disappointed. Quite, away from the crowds and personal service just for two. It was the romantic evening my husband and I were looking for, just us two. Cleeve cooked us baked snapper with garlic mash potatoes and sautéed veggies and coconut pie for dessert. Upon our requested he had a bottle of red wine waiting. The personal service was fantastic. Great spot! Fantoni's home kitchen is the best. Just remember to make reservations if you are going as seating is limited. Thanks for a wonderful unforgettable evening.
