The view was amazing!! We enjoyed the food and drinks but they were somewhat understaffed for the crowd that day. We would definitely try again.

So glad you stopped in will visit us again. Out staff definitely works hard when we get busy. This staff has been with us many years, but it is difficult to find others who can and will work as hard. Hope you didn't have to wait to long. See you again. Laura More

Our fish tacos are one of our top sellers, along with the super sized whole fish. So glad you enjoyed yourself there, and found yourself a seat. Some days it can get a little crazy, but that also makes it a lot of fun. See you again. Laura More

We entered the Wet Lizard and placed our order. The wait was extremely long and when the waiter came out he had food for everyone except me. There were 7 of us. He then informs me that they were out of what I ordered. REALLY SIR!! He offered to get me something else however it was almost time to get... More

I am very disappointed myself to hear that if they ran out of your order they should have told you before all the other food was delivered. My apologies. I will be sure to address this issue.

This was our last stop for the day while waiting for the tender to the ship. BTW fellow cruisers, Belize is shallow, so as far as I know, no cruise companies can dock there, everyone tenders. The islands were great, we went straight there to snorkel with the ship's excursions. This is one of the few places I would use... More

Happy to hear you had a good time snorkeling in Belize. It is truly a great spot for that. I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the ceviche. That is one of our best sellers, and people take it with them. We buy all our vegetables locally and sometimes the prices of tomatoes (other item in the ceviche) is... More

We ate here on a port stop and we're so glad we did. Sana was the best server we have ever had on any of our trips in the Caribbean. She was super friendly and extremely efficient! The food was amazing- try the coconut shrimp- and the drinks were hard to beat! A must go when in Belize City!

I will be sure to pass on your review the Sana. I always like to let them know their hard work is appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the food and drink. We will see you again soon I hope. Laura More

This place was fun, cute - love the "Husband daycare" signs!!! The drinks were good and priced right. Beware of the green stuff on the nachos - they are cucumbers and not jalapeños. Interesting but would not order those again. The site was lovely and perfect for cruisers just wanting to hang out before hopping on the tender and the... More

I guess you don't like cucumbers? LOL We make our salsa fresh daily with a variety of vegetables. That is something that makes our salsa different and requested a lot buy folks. True, a little different for some. Sorry you didn't like them but so glad you enjoyed yourself. Thanks for coming by and spending time with us. Look forward... More

This was just a short stop for us right on the water. Very nice place with a shop just under it. We were treated to a tribal dance with both men and women and in full dress to make the singing enjoyable to watch and listen to. Well worth the stop at a great location.

My husband and I visited the Wet Lizard while on our cruise a couple of years ago. The drinks were great and not overpriced (unlike many other restaurants at cruise ship docks) and we had the best chips and salsa ever.

I can tell you, you are on the right track. If you make it back to the Wet Lizard, or our sister bar in Nassau, the Bearded Clam, maybe we will reveal a few more secrets. Glad you had a good time and enjoyed our food. Can't wait to see you again. Laura More

Convenient location on the pier of the Belize cruise ship port. Downstairs offers great cocktails and light snacks, the upstairs is a full restaurant offering the best of Belizean cuisine. Conch, shrimp, fresh fish. Everything is made fresh daily. A great place to spend the day, to relax, or get up dance and party with us.
