Stopped by one of my favorite Restaurants in Belize City. It's an inside/outside tropical experience! Excellent service & the food is always delicious 😋!

We had a pretty good lunch late one afternoon. Clear winner was the ceviche but the wraps were also solid.

Food was ok but nothing worth writing home about. Service was below average and slow even for Belize City. Prices were higher than expected. Not bad but not great either. Only plus side when we went was they were open when most other places were closed.

Located by the Ramada Inn we stopped here at the end of a tour. Loved the rum punch. Then had a lunch which included, blackened fish, snapper fingers, rice and beans and plantains. They were all tasty and delicious. Sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed the afternoon. A Great stop./

The prices were obviously elevated for the foreign tourists passing through. Most entrees were between US $20 up to $38. For the ambiance and inattentive service, the prices are way out of line, even by US standards. The food was good, but not good enough for the price. We went across the street to the Radisson and found more reasonable... More

Had excellent ceviche with crisp and non-greasy tortilla chips. Friend had fish chowder. Fresh, flavorful. A very relaxed place that we wandered on to unexpectedly.

This was a good meal especially in an area with not much going on. The lobster was cooked perfectly and the price was reasonable. Give this place a shot. The service is not the greatest.

We tried this place for dinner because the Rough Guide rated it so highly. The only high thing here was the prices and not the praise for the food. It was fine but it was not as it was pitched to be. I expected something pretty awesome for the dinner price.

Saturday night in August was not the time to dine here. The mosquitos feasted on us despite the staff providing a small mosquito burner. We were the only 2 people for the first hour and then one family showed up. Maybe that is why the service was so listless. The food was very mediocre and every dish had copious quantities... More
