The food and service are both of great quality. And how can you beat a place that remembers you when you come back. We had their Fried Chicken for lunch and came back for their 3 course dinner a few days later and they remembered us from the previous visit. not on one of the main areas and probably why this family run place keeps it quality and good service.

This quaint little restaurant had some of the best traditional Belizean food we have tried thus far. The key lime pie that finished the fabulous three course meal we had was definitely a delight, the food was freshly prepared and the flavours were fantastic. We had the shrimp creole and the mango shrimp, both done to perfection. If you like hot sauce, this is definitely the place to go. The heat from the sauce is enough to scorch the inside of your mouth. A special thank you goes out to our waiter Henry. We have attended restaurants all over the world and he is one of the best waiters we have encountered and better than most, very personable and provides exceptional service. If you visit San Pedro on Ambergris Caye I would highly recommend attending this establishment for an excellent dining experience.

This place has the real deal if you are looking for local fare! Try the Salbutes - yummy (they also have the hottest sauce on the planet if you're into that) Great service - all fresh food!
