Went to El Fogon in May. We got there a little early for lunch and someone from the staff gave us a tour of the fire hearth and the food. We got stew chicken and stew beans and rice. Excellent food at a very good price. El Fogon gets very high ratings from me in every category.

Mmm, where to start, everything is soo good! My fave: White rice, with stewed beans and whole fried fish! It's good! Fogon is definitely the right place to go if your looking for authentic Belizean food! It's a few steps out of town and doesn't really offer much for view but trust me the food cooked on a traditional fogon definatley makes up!

Stopped in for a light lunch and shared their Conch Ceviche... Very tasty! The Belikins were ice cold and the menu had many interesting offerings.

Like most Belizian restaurants, the atmosphere is very casual.

My wife had a traditional dish of stewed chicken with rice and beans and a tasty beverage. She loved the chicken and rice and raved about the drink.

I had the Gibnut (Royal Rat) with rice and beans. Delicious. Has a taste all its own and there's really nothing I can compare it to that most people would find familiar. The Gibnut does have bones so if your wanting boneless, go with the chicken or pork. I also had a Mango/Ginger Mohito that was a perfect complement to the meal on a hot day.

Enjoy!
