This lovely spot was just down the beach from our resort. We had such a wonderful dinner here that we returned for another! Food and service were outstanding. The owner stopped to chat, which was a very nice touch.

Very nice place on beach. The paella was delicious and the key lime pie for dessert was yummy. Service was very good. Very accommodating as they picked us up and brought us back to our hotel in 2 golf carts because we were 6 people.

Great view with awesome food! I got the Belizean Paella and my husband got the fish tacos. Both were amazing! It’s out of the way but well worth it!
