“quaint lunch in the "jungle"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I and two friends had lunch at Aji on our recent trip to Ambergris Caye. We shared zucchini ravioli, garlic shrimp, fish tacos and bacon wrapped dates. All of the dishes were delicious, but the dates were delectable. I would also recommend trying the Purple Parrot to wash it all down.

“Wonderful Breakfast Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

My husband and I came here for breakfast at the start of our vacation, I read about the seafood eggs benedict and had to try it. We were still on US time & ended up arriving here early, so we walked the beach & sat at a palapa/pier dock right next to this restaurant and enjoyed the scenery. Needless to say, I was ravenous by the time we were seated & couldn't order my seafood eggs benny fast enough. The waiter brought out the coffee, just like I like it, hot & strong, thank God - I hate weak coffee. Score 1 point. Then out came the Seafood Eggs Benny & they were wonderful! Score 2 points. Our male server was very nice & polite. Score 3 points and the bill was very reasonable. Score 4 points. We wanted to try dinner but never made it back, I'm grateful though that we were able to experience this very nice restaurant.

The first place we dined on the night we arrived. The food and sevice was great. Beautiful open air seating by the caribbean. Only issue was, the bathroom looked clean but didn't smell clean.

“Beautiful spot, so so food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Lunch at Aji was a bit disappointing. First the service - I ask the waiter two things - what kind of fish is the fish and chips and is the salad made with head lettuce - the answer to both was - I don't know. Not I will find out for you just I don't know. The appetizer we had was fried cheese which was barely cooked so the cheese was still hard inside and was also tasteless. My husband had the special fish tacos which were good but you need two orders as was very small portions. I had the fish and chips, the portion size was good but just run of the mill. Our meals with two cokes was $75bz, which is a bit pricey for lunch. What redeamed Aji is it is a lovely spot, romantic and right on the sea. I think maybe it would be a better spot for dinner and order off the dinner menu.

“Romantic setting,good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants on the beach. The whole experience was enjoyable. Tables are set out under the trees with plenty of room to provide for privacy.We particularly enjoyed the shrimp tapas and the red snapper. Prices are on par with others in the area - expensive. If you visit in the evening be sure there is the usual breeze or the bugs will spoil your meal as with all the other beach restaurants.
