Description: ***Top quality seafood and barbeque in Punta Gorda***Relax at the only restaurant and bar around that is completely over the sea. Fresh meals are cooked to order with sustainably caught seafood; fish are often caught by Asha (the owner/head chef) himself. Open kitchen serves hearty dishes prepared with healthy ingredients.Listen to various styles of live music – including Creole and Garifuna drumming, Mayan marimba, and international performances – all while enjoying the Caribbean sea breeze with a view of the Guatemala highlands from across the bay.Exceptional service and competitive prices. Business practices are very environmentally friendly. Marine tours, sustainable-fishing classes, sunset-booze cruises, and cooking lessons are available. Great meeting spot to get to know the locals, meet other tourists, or get detailed information on Toledo. We cater to all needs; including large groups, food delivery, and a variety of events. Please call ahead for large groups, to-go orders, directions, or our music schedule.

“99% Love.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Asha's restaurant not only has incredibly delicious food, but an incredible service and staff. Ashton, the owner goes above and beyond to make your experience perfect and the restaurant has a very nice feel and atmosphere. Eat in or out in the porch under the stars and by the sea, they sometimes have music and friendly people to talk to. Can't wait to go back when I find myself in PG again, highly recommend it. Ask Asha about his main ingredient and you'll find a lovely surprise!

“Great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Asha's may be a bit more expensive than other places in PG but it is well worth paying a little extra. He does a wide range of seafood and meat dishes but vegetarians (like me) don't miss out. The vegetable curry is yummy and there are plenty of sides to choose from. All food is fresh and cooked to order.
Asha's also has a great atmosphere - whether you're there for a drink or to eat, you can usually enjoy live music (mostly local drumming) and the entire building is built over the sea, meaning there's a great view wherever you sit. There's even a jetty at the back of the building where you can chill in the evening. Definitely worth a visit

“Great place to eat in PG”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Asha's is a great option for dinners in Punta Gorda. The view can not be beat, the food is some of the best you will find in town and the vibe is laid back. If you are in a rush this may not be the place to be as they cook everything from scratch but if you want a good meal at a relaxed pace Asha's can't be beat.
