Food is quite good. Good menu. Clean modern place with lots of parking. Back deck overlooking the river is very nice. Inside is also good, but quite noisy when busy. Probably one of the best in the city.

Quite a large menu but the fool was great Helpings were very large, especially the Nachos. Mixed drinks were good, though a bit weak. Friendly staff.

Best restaurant I have found in Belize City during my three week stay. Food was good, service was good, and prices are reasonable. I had a hamburger, the other two guys had different dishes and they were all good. They even split the tab like I requested. I highly recommend it.

I've heard a lot about this place, so we went for a visit. Service was a bit slow, but it was busy and the waiter was very courteous. The food was good. Nothing to complain about. I loved their stacked onion rings, and the margaritas were to die for. I love the outside dining by the river...better out there. It... More

This is an excellent bar and restaurant in a fairly run down neighborhood, but most of what we saw of Belize City was. We only had one meal there, but we enjoyed it very much. It was within easy walking distance of our hotel.

Food was great, atmosphere was perfect and the service was warm and friendly. It took a little while to get our food but the wait was worth it. I'd totally recommend tavern to my friends visiting back home.
