Awesome food with a nice Mexican fuzz to it. The best jalapeño poppers (stuffed jalapeños) I've ever had. Friendly staff and owner who checks on customers. A good view of the town and on clear days you can see villages 10 miles away.

Rolson's is the epitome of a local restaurant in San Ignacio. The restaurant is very private, the food local, the service makes you feel like you haven't left your house and the prices are more than reasonable. To get a true idea of what it's like to eat like a Belizeano stop by Rolson's Cocian Cantina.

We enjoyed watching the views from the balcony. The food was tasty served hot and our waitress took very good care of us. I recommend a reservation to get a table with the best views.

We ate here our first night in Belize, and really enjoyed the chips and salsa..great flavor in the salsa. The food is also good, pretty much what I expected from a Mexican restaurant, and a good price.

Rolson's is a Mexican restaurant that is situated high enough to look over the lights of San Ignacio and Santa Elena at night. The food and service is very good and the atmosphere is relaxing. We have often taken visitors there.

I have eaten here on two occasions, and both times, either the order was wrong or the food was cold when it arrived, only to be sent back to a microwave. The drink prices are also off the charts. Don't bother eating here.
