Great food, great service and live music. Right on the beach. We had coconut chicken curry and jalisco snapper both were delicious, as was the frozen sangria! Service was AWESOME and FAST. Kenny is hilarious.

Belize vacations are almost made on the quality of restaurants chosen. If that statement resonates, then eat this food and make your trip amazing. I ordered bacon wrapped shrimp. It was so fantastic!!! Highly recommend.

We ate here twice while staying in San Pedro. Shout out to our waiter Kenny - very nice guy. Kenny if you read this, we are the Blues Brothers 😃. Great service, right on the water, reasonable prices.
