About
At our cultural center we invite families, guests, visitors and tourists to come in to see local Belizean culture. In our country there are many ethnic groups yet we are all Belizeans. One of the most dynamic and interesting ethnic groups is the Garifuna culture. We offer a full presentation of our culture on request. Live Drumming Displays Food Dances Videos Information Clothing Language and lifestyle. This restaurant has a very unique atmosphere. There is an indoor space as well as outdoor space. It is cultural decorated in traditional Garifuna style, demonstrating our unique artifact, and with the instruments we use, when playing music. This restaurant is locally owned by a Belizean Garifuna family. We serve traditional food and local Belizean food. We specialize in food prepared using coconut milk. This gives our food an authentic flavor which is enjoyed by many. Fish is our main diet so fish is served in many forms, and is always available. Some of our main food serving: Hudut or fish serre and plantains Coconut white rice Coconut luxury rice Rice an beans Stew chicken Fish balls, pork chops, pork ribs and more Our tradition menu is available as You walk into the restaurant. If You are a vegetarian there is a wide variety to choose from. Lunch is great with us. Dinner is even better, as that is the time when the drummers are in and Belizean Garifuna music and dance takes place. Friendly people, Friendly drummers, Atmosphere local Belizean style!

Amazing Food!

Great food and great owners! It may be off the beaten path, but it's worth a visit. Was happy to support the Garifuna Belizeans in San Pedro.

Great food here! The combo hudut is delicious, highly recommend it. We didn’t see much of the cultural entertainment side, but the food alone is worth the visit by itself.

Unique Cultural Experience
May 2019 • Family
We bring our teenage tour group here each time we visit Ambergris Caye. The dinner followed by a video on the Garifuna followed by drumming and dancing is a unique cultural experience. We like it because our students get to learn about a native culture and the stories as related in the video provide lots of thoughtful information. We arrived at 6pm and did not leave until 10pm. The food was Buffett style and plentiful. The musicians are all local Garifuna. The video shown is old but still informative. The drumming and dancing is great (audience is asked to get up and learn the dances). The one downside is that if the weather is not right (if too hot) and mosquitos are out, sitting in the chairs provided for 4 hours is a very long time. Even with good weather the show can run a bit long. But if you want a bit of culture, then don’t miss this.

Traditional & authentic food, like no where else on the island.
Prices are great, service is great.
If you want to try something different - this is the place.

Look for and follow the signs as this restaurant is no longer visible from the main road as a shipping container has been placed to obstruct your view. But the signs are great - just follow them - the restaurant is less than a minutes walk from the main road.

Best restaurant we found in all of Belize!
Jan 2019 • Family
My family and I were thrilled when we found this amazing gem of a restaurant after ending up at a long list of awful touristy places with overpriced, bad food. The food here was truly fantastic and we actually loved it so much that we went back three times!

Note that this place may be a bit hard to find because the owners are being bullied by an awful foreigner who is hellbent on buying their property and is trying to destroy their livelihood because they don't want to sell. He owns much of the property around them and has placed a giant garbage container in front of their restaurant that says "dump recycling here." All the more reasons to support this local-owned, wonderful restaurant. Once you get inside, you'd never know the place is hidden behind that big metal box.

The BEST resturant for GREAT authentic Belize and Garfiuna food.
Dec 2018 • Family
We had the Hudut and Belizan patty. They have great vegetarian options; my 12-year old daughter said " I am vegetarian haven." We stumbled on this restaurant. I saw advertisements from the road and was intrigued by the advertising of learning about the Garfiuna culture. The only accept cash. Great food, great potion and great prices! This is a must visit!

Hudut is a traditional fish stew with coconut milk and plantains. Three of us had different versions of this. It was delicious. Friendly and laid back. Let me keep a bike inside for a few hours. Cash only.

What a find!
Apr 2017 • Solo
Accidentally found Black & White down a side street close to my hotel. What a surprise. Frank, the owner, was very humble and cool guy. Try the Hudut which is snapper cooked in cream with peppers, cilantro, and onions. The Broil Up has everything from fish to egg to pig tail with carrots, plantains, and cassava.
