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.

Visited the tavern with my friends and I must say the place surpassed my expectations. The outside does not do justice to the inside. The set up inside is beyond impeccable. The drinks are amazing.

The service was outstanding during my recent visit. Our waiter Carlos recommended the blackened red snapper with shrimp, lemon and caper sauce and it was delicious! My son ordered the jerk chicken and enjoyed it very much. Thank you Carlos!

You won't be disappointed in the food quality and taste. Both starters and main courses were very tasty. Absolutely no complaints there. Service was completely "miss" however. It was like someone with short term memory loss giving service.

We ate dinner here two of the four nights we were in town. The service is wonderful but the food coming out might take a bit depending on the night. The best item is the beef carpaccio, it's outrageously delicious. I wouldn't suggest this place for a backpackers low budget. Prices range from $15BZ for a burger to $55BZ filet... More
