With all the rave reviews we had to try it. Ordered the chicken stew and the nights special, snapper stuffed with goat cheese and spinach. Good food. Special overpriced. Chicken stew was good for $10 US. Special was $27 US and good but not great....More

Maybe our favorite restaurant on the island. The stew is incredible, and a Belizean classic so I’d highly recommend it. We also had stuffed snapper (a special), which was delicious. The mango sauce that comes with the fish kabobs was also amazing.

El Fogon was a delightful surprise. The restaurant is small and unassuming but service was good and the food was spot on. I had lime and garlic sauce, yummy, and my companions had curry that they raved about. We shared conch fritters that were crispy...More
