All of the locals we asked about restaurants pointed us in the direction of this place. It is really good food at a great price. They are famous for El Salvadorian Pupusas - think corn pancake stuffed with meat and cheese. In addition to the Pupusa style street food, they have massive burritos with every form of seafood you can... More

Don't miss the lobster burrito, great value. Also chicken and shrimp burrito were good. Has a sand floor, so take bug spray, just in case. Good service, excellent value.

They have a good selection of seafood dishes with good portions. They also have fresh handmade pupusa next door. Just be prepared to pay a little more. Stone crabs were 60$ belize which is $30 USD.

Food here was great but service was not. I ordered a papusa that they prepare in the front of the restaurant. So did another member of our party. Both of us also ordered quesadas but they never arrived. Everyone else's good looked great and the prices were wonderful. We never found the waiter to tell him we didn't get our... More

One of my favorite meals in my time in Belize. The lobster burrito is huge with lots of lobster. The mojito was the best I have ever had. It is right on the street and great for watching the city flow by.

Warugama was one of our favorite restaurants in San Pedro. Very laid-back and kid-friendly, but with terrific lobster dishes!

Wow - the lobster was so good. This place was recommended by some locals. You get more than enough food for the money. We actually ate here more than once because we liked it so much. The wait staff was super friendly. Note: they only take cash.

I hate giving negative reviews but my visit to this restaurant wasn't great. We had a party of five. I was the first to receive my food. The other four people in my party didn't receive their food for an additional 20 minutes. In other words I was done before they even begin eating. I will say that my food... More

They serve large portions of the best food!!! We had shrimp ceviche that was so good I craved it everyday. We sampled so many different items and were not disappointed in anything. Don't miss out on an opportunity to eat here!!!
