“excellent local food”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Menu is limited - Jamaican chicken with rice and salad but it is fabulous and a great price. Robin and his wife are very nice down to earth folks; their place is small and not fancy but they know their chicken and this is an excellent local dish served in a local roadside cafe.

“Best Jerk Chicken Ever!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

We ate at Robin's kitchen one rainy day. We wanted to try it but it is hard to choose where to eat with so many places. We decided to turn around and split a meal at Robin's. It was the best decision. It was so great! From the coleslaw to the chicken and rice, it was all yummy. It was easily the best jerk chicken I have ever had. The serving was huge and it was so cheap. The service was so great that we gave way more than the meal cost because it was deserved. This is a great spot to stop in and grab a bite. You will not be disappointed!

“You're the man!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

It gets no simpler than this.....Robin and his wife do a great job, prepare what they serve to perfection whether you bring your fish/chicken or they do. They have a sign that says "you bring it we'll cook it". The costs are perfect, the spice's and herbs they use are marvelous...... Don't be fooled by how it looks; it's clean, friendly and you'll not regret it GO, GO, GO, EAT, EAT, EAT, GOOD, GOOD, GOOD!

“Excellent jerk chicken in Belize”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

My husband and i decided to eat at Robins because it was within walking distances to where we were staying. Glad we did. Just grab a seat and let Robin, the man that owns the place, know you are ready to eat. There's no menu. He will serve up whatever he has cooked for the day. My husband and i were both served sautéed veggie (cabbage, onions, and carrots), beans and rice, and the delicious jerk chicken, which comes with the spicy dipping sauce on the side... The meal was delicious!!!. Now i have to worn you. Robins is not a tradition restaurant. It is more of a shack on the side of the road where he cooks his beans/rice and veggies. No seating room inside. Everybody sits outside with their feet in the sand. No walls only a roof thatched roof. There are about 6 resin table and chairs. Just grab a spot. He will come to the table and tell you what he has. Also be sure to bring your own drink because he sells no drinks. For 2 meals we paid 24bze. Very very reasonable and worth ever penny!!! I would go back.

“Great food and sides! Unique little spot”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We are so glad we made a visit to this place. Be forewarned - there is no menu - it's whatever is on the grill. We bought drinks next door and sat outside while they cooked chicken on the grill and they served it with all the sides. And it was fantastic! The coleslaw was served heated and warn and I was a little worried upon first glance, but upon tasting it...fab. I loved it! The owners are friendly. They will also cook anything you catch and you just bring it in and they'll just charge you for the sides. Unique spot, unique dining. I will definitely return next time in San Pedro. Don't miss this one! Note - when we were there they were closed Friday evenings and Saturday lunch. Calling first doesn't help because they didn't answer the phone so we just asked a cab driver. The cabs know everything!
