Probably the best food option on the island in terms of value for your money. (All foodstuffs are grossly overpriced throughout the island, but at least here the prices are slightly more reasonable - and the friendliness and personal service make it squarely the best option on Caye Caulker)!

If you don't follow the handpainted signs, you will not find this place! They had a delicious Rum Punch made with fresh mango and pineapple juice! I had the coconut curry snapper filet and JD had the coconut snapper filet. It was delicious!!! Abby & Carl, our new friends from Dublin showed up and we had a nice visit with... More

After reading several reviews and looking at pictures, I thought this was going to be a hidden gem. Arriving there the smell alone should have told us to turn around. The area was not what you'd expect for even back street dining. We were the only ones there. The bugs were awful. Thankfully we were brought a bottle of bug... More

There are signs posted which makes it easy to find, and so worth it! Truly homemade, local, secret recipes here being passed down from generations. Mom, the owner, has taught her daughter the ropes, who is teaching her daughters! Nice selection, fish dishes are fabulous, gotta go!

This restaurant is tucked away from the main street, but it is worth the search. Up a flight of stairs, and there you are. The prices are reasonable and the food is very good. What more can you ask for?

DO NOT GIVE UP TRYING TO FIND THIS PLACE! Yes, it's situated waaay back off the road and you have to go down a path that looks like you've certainly gone in the wrong direction but TRUST ME you're headed the right way and it's totally worth it. Look, this island is small and everyone is friendly so you are... More

When I first biked by I was not impressed with the setting. I am so happy we went here for dinner. The restaurant is upstairs on a deck. It feels very private and feels lightyears away from busy Front Street (which is a 4 minute walk). The food was excellent. Service was relaxed caribean. No rush mon.

We ate dinner here on our last night on Caye Caulker from the recommendation of another couple we met the night before at Wish Willies. The location is on the opposite side of the caye from the split and you have to keep following the signs and climb two flights of stairs to some terrific local fare. We had whole... More

Amazing food off the beaten bath. Just down from back street, have to look for signs. Seems like your not headed the right way but keep following signs. On the 3rd floor with a great sunset view. The food was incredible. I ordered garlic butter garlic shrimp and the portion was good sized. Also came with spaghetti type noodles and... More

Yes it's a tad hard to find, but not as hard as other reviews make it out to be. There's signs guiding the way. It's back, around, and up. Do t be scared off by the sketchiness. The one waitress is very attentive and got our order and drink right away. Everything they serve is written on a blackboard so... More
