With no doubt! This is the best food of my trip to Belize, we ordered ceviche it was excellent!!... Jerk pork chops and curry chicken. Everything was delicious Mary Sharps wasn’t needed cause nothing needed anything to fix. Definitely a must try!

It took them more than an hour to bring us the food and in the end it wasn't even tasty and barely enough to satisfy a mouse.

We dined here three nights in a row because we loved the chill vibe and the amazing flavours of the dishes. The staff is super friendly and the cook is incredible. Everything we ordered here was delicious. The cocktails were superb as well!

Got in town late. Walked in and DJ was playing this cool Caribbean music. The floor is sand and I walked all the way to the ocean to take a video. The waiter was accommodating and the food was awesome. Will differently be going back.

Great food, amazing people, great music. This place has it all. Right on the main road, but it goes back all the way to the beach. Must do in Hopkins!

Best jerk I had my whole trip. There is seating in the back with hammocks and the ocean. Would (and did) return.
