“Please Eat Here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We had a party of 8 and were given the suggestion by our rental caretaker to eat here. It did not dissappoint! As we walked up to the restaurant we were greeted by Scrappy who was very polite and friendly and immediately welcomed us in with free Rum Punches! The atmosphere is casual and laid back; and the food is absolutely amazing. Plesae try the hot sauce -- it is made on site and has a great flavor. One of my companions swears the ketchup is even better here. Bottomline -- Great food, great atmosphere, great service. We ate twice in the city of San Pedro and both times it was at Caramba!

“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We ate at Caramba and everyone liked their food. There were five of us including my 13-year old son and we all ate our dinner plus key lime pie at the end of the night. The service was very good as well. It is a great place to eat while in Ambergris Caye.

“Great Food. Excellent Service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

I visited this restaurant with a group of 12, and no one complained about their food. You can't go wrong with any of the sauces. I chose their signature sauce (can't recall the name) over shrimp. Our group was big and loud, and the servers were very polite and accommodating. Great choice.

“Terrific Inexpensive Dining with Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We ate at Caramba three times during our recent visit to San Pedro. We initially were drawn in with an offer of a free rum punch. The rum punch turned out to be surprisingly good and not watered down.

We tasted a lot of the offerings from jerk chicken to fajitas to burritos to the chicken sandwich. All of it was quite good for the price. I don't think we ever spent over $35 US for dinner, and that price includes a few beers. The service was always warm and welcoming and they definitely remembered us. Here is how good the service was - one night, a group of 20 came in (they were ready for them). I thought, oh no, we'll never get our dinner now, they'll be too preoccupied with the large group. That never happened! We got our Belikins and dinner quickly and the service was still attentive.

The complimentary snapper ceviche was also quite good and a nice touch.

Wish I was there now instead of at work!
