“Great food with personality on the side!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

My wife and I really enjoy the atmosphere of the places we go.
After reading all the reviews of this restaurant, it was one place we definitely were not going to miss (so the guy who threatened to destroy the place here on TripAdvisor didn't accomplish his objective).
We were there in the early afternoon and it wasn't busy. Caroline's daughter was our waitress.
We ordered a pina colada and it was interesting just to see Caroline create it - we knew beyond the shadow of a doubt it was made from fresh ingredients because we saw here make it - and when do you see a bartender take 10 minutes on a pina colada? If you're using fresh fruit like she did, then it does!
My wife had a salad and I had stewed chicken and rice with beans - I really wanted to order a burger but like trying the local cuisine. I'm glad I did, as everything was excellent. Caroline came out and saw that I'd finished the chicken and chicken broth and was down to the rice and beans, so she went to the kitchen and came back with more broth, laughing that she stole it from the cook!
Caroline turned out to be a very interesting person and makes this restaurant what it is. I'm sure when it's busy, she can't address all her customers the same way, but it's entertaining to see how she works. She struck us as a feisty gal, and I'll bet if the guy who flamed her on here tried to take off without paying as another contributor says, he got flamed in person! A person like that simply doesn't understand how tough it is to run a small operation like hers - it's not like walking out of Red Lobster or Olive Garden without paying where they'll never miss it.
We plan to eat here again before we fly out and I'd highly recommend it.

“Amazing service and Amazing Food!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for delicious and authentic cuisine for a reasonable price, then you must eat here. It's right across from the airport so it is convenient to eat here before or after your flight! Caroline and her team make every item from scratch! I had the jerk chicken which was delicious! You must come and meet Caroline.

“We'll be back for sure!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Great food, hard-working and fabulous owner, great value! We loved our breakfasts and I'm pretty sure there isn't anything on the menu that's less than fabulous. Huge portions, very fresh and reasonably priced. Can't say enough about Caroline - she was very attentive and when it turned out the credit card machine wasn't working and we didn't have any cash, she was super apologetic about the inconvenience and said, "Just stop by another time when you have cash!" How trusting is that?!? My husband ran out to the ATM while I waited but we can't believe she'd be so nice to total strangers. Well, she doesn't let anyone feel like a stranger for long...

“dangerously delicious”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

I heard from one of the locals that this was the best place for breakfast so I headed over on my last morning and I had the Belizean breakfast....it was so tasty and flavorful and the fry jacks are to die for. I also met Caroline herself, the sweetest woman in the world. Definitely a must try and the prices were great too.

Carolines Kitchen has moved to front street, but the food is just the same. Served up hot/fresh and by the owner herself. Choose from jerk or curry, full bar. Quiet place, reasonable prices.
