While staying on Ambergris Caye we wanted to try different restaurants for dinner each night. One night we found ourselves at 'O' on the Las Terrazas property. This review is a comment only on the restaurant.

Overall the food was very good. We enjoyed our appetizers and dinner. Our waiter was friendly and provided good service.

A couple of negatives:
1. It is definitely a standard type of restaurant that you find at many holiday resorts in the Caribbean and in Mexico;
2. With only 2 people at the table they still charged us a 12.5% gratuity. I don't believe that for a table with only 2 people that this should be automatically charged. If I have good service and food I generally tip 15 - 20%. But I shouldn't have to pay a certain amount and then on top of that be expected to tip the waiter a second time. Which apparently was the expectation.

There are so many locally owned and managed restaurants in the area that offer a much more Belizean experience. I would definitely go to these first the next time I am on the Caye.

Recently visiting the island and being foodies we wanted to find a must go place to eat when visitng, we stayed at Captin Morgans and asked about near by restaurant, being so far from town there is limited options, having heard mixed reviews about a restaurant near by, we figured it was time for us to go and form our own opinion. We arrived to be greated by a very polite and personable Host Manuel, our waiter then came to introduce himself, explaining the menu and what they called their "Themed Special". The special was very well priced, it included my starter and a drink special to match, My wife got the olive tapenade to start and Seafood Risotto for Main course. We have to say this meal was among, if not the best meal we had on our trip. We found most restaurants on ambergris key to have simular ideas and food to offer on their menus, but visitng O Restaurant we noticed they have taken a different approach. It was also a treat to have met the Executive Chef of O Restaurant Patrick, He has an incredible story about how he came to be in Belize and certainly has a bright furture ahead of him. I know many restaurants back home who would love to have a young chef so pashionate and clued into this business as him. Our night ended with a gorgeous trio of key lime, it was presented as miniture deserts (very french) and was extremly delicious. On our next trip to Belize we will be sure to visit Patrick and his team at O Restaurant. The Restaurant is found at Las Terrazas Resort about 3 miles north of town. Can be a bad drive ont he road to get there but a 15minute walk from captin morgans. The theme is casual and the restaurant is very clean and maintained.

This is the worst meal we had in our visit to belize. Extremely disappointing since we were staying at the hotel and the connivence. I don't know where to begin with describing the food. The seafood was not fresh which is unacceptable for a Caribbean location They said there was a new chief which was the reason for the poor quality. Would never return to eat here again.

The food at this restaurant is delectable! We had excellent service. The food was served with the friendliest smiles :). Being the food critic that I am, I must give them 5 *****. The atmospheres is modern and sleek and very 5th Avenue cocktail evening.... if that is even a description... you get the point. All in all, I would go back and dine and dine and dine again!
