Everybody at my table ordered a different thing and everybody loved their food. The ginger lime conch, which I had, was fantastic. Definitely eat here at least once if you’re on the island!

We asked the locals where THEY would go eat. I don’t like going to touristy places. They said here. It was great. Small place, small menu, authentic cuisine. Good pricing. Good portions. It was exceptional. Definitely a must if you want authentic Belizean cuisine.

When first entering, the aroma already makes you want to eat here. Simple tables, small setting, with a large open fire hearth with large pots cooking up delicious dishes. I ordered the special for the night. This started with an amazing tortilla soup ( vegetarian),...More
