Lily's Treasure Chest is overall average for the price and what you're getting. It's nice because it's right on the beach but nothing special.

The service was extremely slow. We would have to flag staff down for simple requests. And once my husband had to go inside to ask for silverware. I ordered a tuna fish sandwich. It was a small Dollop of tuna and mayonnaise, maybe two tablespoons worth, between two pieces of anemic bread. No lettuce tomato Or onion. My side was... More

We ate lunch at Lily's after a local recommended to go there. We were told the ceviche is great at dinner. We had the chicken and shrimp fajitas for lunch and they were delicious! The tortillas were homemade and fresh, which made the meal perfect!

Lily's has a great breakfast menu and the real watermelon juice is not to be missed! You can't beat the beachfront location either.

Stopped into this place for a quick bite and we were happy we did. I had the lemon fish - it was a very soft fish, well breaded, flavorful. Service was good and it was fun watching the activity on the pier in front. Some guys showed up with a mechanical bull in a cart. Wonder what that was about?... More

I was GRANDPAcking in San Pedro for 18 nights. I found myself down at Lily's often. It's a simple place. Quiet and relaxing. They play good background music. It's on the beachfront with a view out over the marina. Happy Hour is 3pm to 8pm. 3 local beers are BZ$10 (they are BZ$5 each elsewhere). A nice place to kick... More

We ordered the shrimp ceviche. It was good. We ordered a couple of beers and weren't too cold. Service is average- no smile and no proper greeting. :) If there was space on the outside tables, we would have spent more time. Great location as the beach is right in front.
