We were lucky enough to stay at the Mariposa and enjoy several excellent breakfasts, poolside snacks and fabulous dinners during our stay. The setting next to the pool and ocean is absolutely gorgeous, the service is excellent and the food and drinks are truly outstanding....We've been to some great restaurants in NYC, Paris, London, Rome, Chicago, Cartagena, Medellin and other cities in the US and Europe and the Breezeway is one of our all time favorites! Keep an eye out for the daily cocktail specials. We tried 3 different ones and they were all excellent with or without alcohol. Outstanding dishes you must try: -Butterfly broiled lobster -Seafood risotto -Spicy Mayan fish -Sweet potato croquettes -Mayan breakfast -Miguel's Special (cocktail) -Copalli Club Martini -Belize bread pudding Breezeway is 1000% worth the trip from Placencia and far beyond!More

We were staying at Mariposa Beach Resort for a week and I am not kidding when I say we ate here for almost every single meal. The food was incredible — and we ate way too much of it because we wanted to try everything...on the menu. I can't believe I didn't take any pictures but it was all presented so beautifully and it tasted even better than it looked!! I highly recommend the mayan breakfast, nachos, marinated skirt steak, tacos, and seafood risotto!!More

Can't say enough about the quality of the food and drinks. We got focused attention from wonderful staff and the seafood dishes were excellent. Reasonably priced as well (Entrees around $18). We could hear the waves of the ocean just meters from our table; beautiful...location.More

Excellent experience all around. The food was delicious and had a good balance of local and American cuisine. The service was first class and hearing the team’s personal stories and backgrounds was one of my favorite parts of our trip to Belize. Esdra and Donnie...are amazing and you are all in great hands with them. Ambience is lovely as the restaurant is 20 feet from the water, which the moon shines brightly aboveMore

Quite honestly one of the best dining experiences in all of Belize. The restaurant itself was unassuming off the main road and we were the only patrons in the there, but after our first cocktail order we decided to stay for dinner. Highly recommend the...Miguel’s special (jalapeños rum red wine mojito?!) quite unique and delicious! We had re Mayan fish and special shrimp, both to die for. Esdra was our sever and he was extremely friendly and conscientious. 5/5 for food and 4.8 out of ambience (maybe a less rainy, busier night would have made it a 5!).More

We stayed at the Mariposa for 10 days for our wedding and honeymoon. We not only had the BEST food, but the drinks were absolutely amazing. The service was off the charts. The attention to detail is above any restaurant I have ever visited. We...originally planned to leave the resort for more meals but when people are coming to the resort to eat how could you leave.

My partner and I had a flight delay at the near by airstrip and found Mariposa right down the street. Reviews said Mariposa had a delicious breakfast and a very pleasant beach view. The breakfast was delicious, a delightful spin on huevos rancheros and a...perfect breakfast burrito. Gladis, our server and morning welcomer was kind and attentive. After hearing of our morning mishap, she went out of her way to organize a ride for us back to the airstrip from Mariposa, letting us avoid a walk back to the strip (we were not staying at the resort). The resort looks lovely and quiet and the food was great. Thank you to Gladis and the Mariposa morning staff.More
