I had high hopes, staying at a resort nearby, we had dined out the previous night and heard good things so...this was a mistake...we were seated in an empty restaurant. My partner ordered a martini and I had water. When I asked for a refill,...I was advised I would be charged by the bottle. My partner tried to order another martini, but the waitress was too busy with her friend who sat after us. It took 35 minutes for the soup, which was outstanding, to arrive, and then apps and entrees both arrived within 5 minutes. Bad waitressing and kitchen planning. Food from there below average, salty and my rib risotto was dry and uninteresting. We asked about dessert...there was one item. We paid and left to have dessert at Guava Limb.More

One of the best meals in a while. Very quaint restaurant on a side street. The food was amazing! The beer braised beef risotto was outstanding. We arrived a bit late and we were afraid they would not sit all 8 of us. But they...did. So happy they did! I highly recommend.More

Excellent cocktails. Had dinner at bar & had high expectations based on the reviews. My steak was excellent & Lamb chops a little tough. Service a bit slow.

We visited this little gem because someone on our travels recommended it and we were not disappointed! The best Steak/ Beef we are in the entire or our 3 weeks in Belize! This place is honestly worth the visit! Make sure you book or you...won’t get in as it’s only small. Thanks for looking after us! We’re still raving about you 6 weeks post visitMore

Went with 2 couples to this cozy, recommended spot. This tiny restaurant caters to tourists and affluent Belizeans and has only about 7 tables. We were told we would need reservations. Fortunately, we were able to get the last table on a Monday evening. 3...of the 4 of us rated our meals excellent. My short ribs were truly delicious. My husband's baby back ribs were dry so he was underwhelmed. The eggplant appetizer was some of the best eggplant I have had. Yum!More

My husband and I popped in for dinner one night and we were so happy they were able to accommodate us without a reservation. Food was superb. Vibes were nice. Will definitely return.

We plucked a restaurant from Trip Advisor to eat at our 2nd night in San Ignacio. Lucky us, we picked correctly. We wanted to eat outside and the only available table was sitting at bar stools at the bar. Again - lucky us. We were...treated to the hospitality of Alejandro himself (owner and chef). We asked him for his recommendations and I followed his suggestions. I started with Mussels with some type of lip smacking marinade. (I had to swat away many hands from my husband and friends in order to eat it myself.) This was followed by Lamb, with a chocolate reduction with wine, etc. (Never heard of this type of sauce, buy lord oh mighty, it was heavenly.) I ended the evening with a wonderful dessert (that i did share with my husband.) Never did we dream that we would find this type of cuisine in such a remote section of Belize. Thank our lucky stars that we did! If I go back to Belize again, it will be to eat here.More

Stumbled upon Crave while wandering around town. The food and drinks are fantastic. Service may be a little slow, but it is definitely worth the wait. The owner Alejandro is a Master chef and pays attention to all the small details to provide the best...experience. Be sure to call ahead to make a reservation the night before.More
