We pass by and saw some locals buying whole roast chicken; we combined it with tamalitos ( there is a lady who sales them right in the corner) and was super tasty! Great lunch . On budget!

I love coming here for lobster fest. They have some of the best food on the Island of Ambergris Cay. Really cheap but GREAT!!! They have two locations on the Island.

Authentic, delicious food. Great service. Generous portions. This has become a standard stop on our visits to San Pedro. The pupusas are amazing!! And if you are craving lobster, you won't leave disappointed or hungry if you order the lobster burrito!! The margaritas are excellent too!!

So we were told this is "THE" place to go for lobster burritos. Like they are the best on the island. Unfortunately, we did not have the same taste buds as everyone else. I had the chicken quesadillas and my partner got THE lobster burrito with coconut cream sauce. First, mine was more like chicken queso in tortillas, although abundant... More

This was one of my most memorable meals in San Pedro, Belize. My three friends and I were the only people in there, just a small little hole in the wall, the waiter running next door to grab our beers and other items. The highlight of our orders was my friend's seafood burrito, an epic burrito like you've never seen.... More

Service was amazing and the food matched the service. Seafood Platter was good. No ceiling fans or A/C so expect to sweat while dining.

I was excited because I love pupusas but they were average. They were a bit soggy and bland. However, for the price it was an okay late night meal!

So I wasn't expecting much from this place because it had several recommendations and signs in San Pedro. Translation, I thought it would be a subpar restaurant catering to tourists (like my hotel restaurant, but that's another review). Negative! I had my favorite meal in Belize here -- a lobster burrito. Damn that thing was good! Great call to get... More

The restaurant looks more like fast food place from the outside but I can assure you this was one of our favorite places to eat. The food is delicious! Each one of our group of 6 ordered something different and we were all pleased with our orders. There was a lot of taste sampling going on, lol! Put this restaurant... More
