We got in Ambergris Caye a little earlier then planned. So we stopped here for lunch, great drinks and food beachside, we loved the breeze and views as we ate.

Came here for lunch based on good reviews but may be bad timing for us. Service was slow. Chicken nacho was just OK. Portion of guacamole was not impressive. Won't be back.
