We planned to visit this after my brother decided to stop by one day and tour the grounds. This is a great spot and one can see why it would be perfect for weddings or family reunions. The restaurant is expensive, but well worth it. This is the place to eat for a romantic dinner. We celebrated my sister's anniversary... More

Stayed at Victoria House where this restaurant is located. Initial concern about resort restaurant as it is the only one. Pleasant surprised by quality. This is one of the nicer restaurants on Ambergis Caye. We dined here twice and enjoyed both dinners. Seafood and vegetables are fresh and delicious. Wine selection not extensive but good. Excellent service. They go out... More

Went there with two good friends and my wife to celebrate her birthday. We were attended in an excellent way by Marlon who showed us to our table and took the orders. Food was outstanding, albeit a bit high-priced. This is to be expected though, as the food was superior anything we had on Ambergris. Highly recommendable.

Probably the only high end restaurant on the island. Very nice atmosphere with very well prepared food and the only decent wine list we saw while we were there.

We stayed at VH and dined here several times. The food did not disappoint, and the staff was beyond exceptional! They are especially accommodating when you catch fish and ask them to prepare it to your liking. HIGHLY recommend dining here, even if you don't stay at Victoria House. They treated every guest with first class service!

We dined at Admiral Nelson's twice. My husband was not impressed with either of his meals and one of mine (pizza) tasted like the frozen box variety.

We’re sorry to hear your dining experience at Admiral Nelson’s wasn’t typical of what most of our guests relate to us. We're all proud of the dishes we make from scratch (including the pizzas) in our kitchen and welcome feedback on all of our offerings. We hope to see you again. More

Had a nice dinner sitting on the patio with a view of the pool and the wind coming in off the beach. It was late, so the sun was completely set and I couldn't see the beach. I made a special request that they top my grouper with the pineapple salsa from another dish; it was amazing. I wasn't a... More

The Victoria House is an incredible property to stay if you are looking for top rate service, food and accomodations. Views of the Caribbean Sea from every room. It can't be beat.
