After many pizzas (delivered) from Erva's, I still find myself going for their fish platters. This family owned restaurant offers friendly service and .quiet atmosphere. My favorite is the Caribbean fish.

Erva's was our first dinner stop during our time in San Ignacio, based on our recommendation from a local. I had the special and my wife had the chicken with rice and beans. We both loved our meals. We had planned on going back a second time during our stay, but logistics got in the way. If you have the... More

Fabulous shrimp ceviche--generous portions! We dined on the patio and enjoyed the "off the beaten path" evening atmosphere. Our waiter was one of the most enjoyable people we met in Belize. An excellent experience which I highly recommend!

Myself and 5 other family members went to erva's our first night in San Ignacio. I had the special with lobster and steamed veggies with coconut milk. They make their own coconut milk and it is fabulous. You can watch them cook your food which was really fun for us. Germo, and his employees were so friendly. We had rum... More

We chose Erva's on our first night in San Ignacio because it was about 25 yards from our hotel (Martha's Guesthouse; highly recommend) and because of reviews, and we liked it so much we went back on our 4th/last night. Service was really good, and on our second visit Guillermo even remembered that my wife dislikes onions and made sure... More

Hubby and I went on a Sunday evening and it was pretty dead as we were the only ones inside and another table outside. However the food was pretty good with lots of flavor and fresh ingredients. We ordered creole fish and stew chicken and both dishes tasted good. A good spot to visit in San Ignacio.

We actually wanted to try El Fuego, a restaurant recommended to us by our ATM guide Patrick. However, that restaurant is closed on Mondays, so we wandered over to Erva's instead. When we arrived, we hesitated because we didn't see many people eating on the front patio or inside the restaurant. Not a good sign. But as we peered inside,... More

Great local restaurant with good specials! If in San Ignacio, it's a must! Had the snapper and a club sandwich. Both were wonderful!
