We visited here for dinner after dark so we cannot speak of the view although we assume it is lovely. The indoor bar decor is mediocre and did have the smell of spilled beer. The food, however, was excellent. We recommend eating here for the...More

I've known the owner, Jamil, for a long time and Manatee Lookout used to be one of my week end haunts. I left Belize for eight years and returned. Nothing had changed. Same good food, same good service and ambiance. Jamil hasn't changed a bit!...More

The place is good, just that there are lots of sand flies so take your repellent with you! My friend and I ordered the chicken fingers, it was really good and I love the dipping sauce. Only slight issue is that they take long to...More

Went to this place as it was the only close by eating option for us (we stayed across the highway at Vista del Mar, no car). I should say, it was probably the best dinner we had during our stay in Belize. Sure, the waiting...More

The chicken is excellent. The Kafka was decent too. My son liked the beef. Did not see any manatees but the spot along the river is pretty.

Sat on the back porch. As it was dark, I did not see any Manatees. I wish I had a flashlight as I hear the Belize river is full of Crocodiles, especially on the other side in the mangroves I was fortunate to sit with...More
