Terrible service! Never got my food. We sat down and ordered right away. Just chicken strips as an appetizer to share. 1 hour and 10 minutes later nobody ever asked if we needed a refill or new drink and the food never came, even when...people came after us and got theirs. They seemed to have forgotten our order. We cancelled our food order and paid for our expensive drink and water. Not crowded at all and plenty of staff waiting other tables.More

Try this place. The food was average at best. The prices were fair. Not a lively place, but over the channel.

We went out for dinner and to put it in a nutshell - it wasn't tasty. "Baked potato" was cooked, not baked. The meat tasted as if it was reheated. Big difference when compared to other places in Caye Caulker that we visited, whetr everything...was fresh, and the most pricy too!More

Nothing particularly great or awful. Is open convenient hours, and location on water is nice. Food priced for tourists, it locals.

Loved this place. We were told to eat here by our tour with Amigos Del Mar. I was skeptical of whether it would be any good. But it was sooooo excellent. Easily it was thE best salad I had anywhere during my stay on San...Pedro. The snapper was soooo fresh and delicious! The restaurant sits out over the water. It is so perfect. I said I wasn’t giving any 5 star reviews bc everything is over priced but this place was priced cheaper than San Pedro. The chef herself came to our table to check with us if we were enjoying our food. Sooooo good. I will miss the fresh fish. Thank you Rainbow Grill!More

The Rainbow Grill is built over the water, providing the perfect place to enjoy a meal with a fabulous view!

Nice location, right on the beach. Largish covered area. Varied menu. We were keen to try conch which we'd never had before. It was served deep fried in batter. But it was so tough - reminiscent of poorly cooked octopus. Suspect it is not always...like that. We were in a group but even allowing for that the service was rather chaotic and too slow. Were they understaffed perhaps.More

Located right on the water in Caye Caulker, this is a great place for a relaxed, casual meal. Service was fast and friendly and the food tasty with a good selection of seafood choices.

The service was great and so was the snapper. They also make a nice rum punch. The view was lovely from the table.

We went fishing and caught a lot of Snapper. Our guide cleaned them while we were cleaning up across the street at the Rainbow Hotel. The guide took the fish to the Rainbow Grill and they prepared them for us. Had both fried and grilled...Snapper, have never eaten a better fish than that whole fried Snapper! WELL DONE RAINBOW GRILL!More

You can't beat the location for a relaxing, comfortable dinner. The food and service were also very good with large portions of fresh fish. We ate there more than once.

Decent seafood, nice location next to the water. Price was fine, but not the value of some other places on the island, and overall didn't make a strong impression on me.

Wayyyyy overpriced and the service was okay. My fish sandwich was almost inedible because of how soggy it was. The cheese fries tasted like they were from a middle school cafeteria. Pina coladas were good.

Besides having one of the best settings for a restaurant in Caye Caulker, they have really good food and their service was very friendly and efficient. My wife had a chicken burrito and I had a fish burrito. Both were huge and very flavorful. Mine...was loaded with grilled snapper and the tortilla was really good too. Great dinner!More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us. The fact that there was no one there at dinner time should have been a clue. After we walked in and were greeted by a less than enthusiastic server who basically threw the menu at us, we decided...to just order a beer and something simple, and leave. We chose the nachos. BIG mistake. Worst nachos I have ever had. A plate of soggy chips, covered with something resembling salsa. Not really sure what is was. If you want to stop for a drink and enjoy the oceans views, fine. If you want food, go somewhere else!More
