“It keeps calling me back for the beers, shots and ceviche!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

The best ceviches in Orange Walk, I keep going back for the ceviche everytime just don't get brave with the peppers. And I forgot the name of it but there's a specialty shot that they also make, I do recommend asking about it, it's a part of the experience at Paniscea that you don't want to miss, located beside river, it can be great for a romantic night out as well.

“Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The food and drinks were fresh and tasted wonderful! I would eat here again! The restaurant sits right on a river so watch out for misquitos.

“Our own restaurant?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Traveling before the real tourist season hit, we came upon this little gem when it was recommended by staff at the Hotel de la Fuente. The view of the river is very nice, but the high point is definitely the staff and Lucy! Lucy is one of the owners and she stopped by for a visit to share her knowledge of the area. When we first stopped in, the restaurant/bar was in the process of opening for the day. We sampled the licuados as we enjoyed being the only patrons. Our bartender produced some of the best, most professionally prepared drinks of our trip! Try the Mudslide on a hot afternoon and don't blame me if you get a brain-freeze when drinking it too fast!

Oh, yeah... the cook is a local woman (Lucy's mother) and if I wasn't already married...

“Its Gr8!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

Gr8 environment, apart from the bugs.
Bugspray is provided.
Stone's throw away from 2 of the best hotels in OrangeWalk.
The waitstaff are very knowledgeable at what they do & actually want to help out.
Theyre gr8. Got a chance to meet the owner. He introduced himself.
The place has been revamped tremendously. Great job with the food & drink selection, man.
The server Rogy makes the best mixed drinks.
Kudos, Rogy.
Will be returning soon. Hopefully with tables for only two.

“Great food on the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Right next to the hotel st Christopher, delicious curry shrimp and good drinks to enjoy after a day of traveling. Can be buggy, but the open air is worth it, and they will provide bug spray. Very nice owner and wait staff. Wifi, too!
