We met Mario when walking up to the restaurant. He is the owner and immediately friendly and looking to make sure we had a pleasurable experience. The food took a while so ask for some chips and salsa to hold you over. The food was definitely worth the wait. Freshest seafood that I have ever had! I had the grouper and my husband had the snapper. So good! The view of the boats coming in and leaving is picturesque. Great service and decent prices.

Our 5th trip to Ambergris Caye, always up for new spots to try! Discovered Licks Beachside Cafe this time and couldn't stay away. First time out, blackened snapper sandwiches, fish was perfectly cooked-moist and flaky (which wasn't our experience at some of the other spots we tried) and the seasoning reflected a light hand, not overpowering the taste of the fish. Second time out, fresh, just off the boat, grouper and jack, again perfectly cooked, with the flavors and textures of the fish at center stage. Hours away from catching our plane off the island, our third meal was brunch, breakfast burrito saucy and sassy, and while it wasn't on the menu that day, upon request, another blackened fish sandwich (yes it is that good!). Mario is not only a great host but a terrific San Pedro/Ambergris Caye/Belize ambassador. Will be a first stop when we next return!

I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the blackened fish sandwich. I wasn't sure how it was going to go over, but it's a big hit. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed all of the meals you ate here at Licks. It makes cooking them that much better, hearing people enjoy them!

The food was outstanding, definitely a cut above the neighboring restaurants along the beach in downtown San Pedro, and the staff is the most friendly around, making this the place we wanted to hang out at, drink coffee and chat all day long. We went first for dinner after a day of touring the mainland and were happy to stumble in and eat a fantastic plate of grouper and a conch shell full of shrimp and conch curry. The upper deck has a great view of the ocean and lured us back the next morning for breakfast and an extended coffee while reading the news over wifi. The breakfast was equally good, having been recommended to us by another couple staying on Ambergris for six months. Fantastic!

Thanx for the great review.
I'm so glad you found the food so enjoyable. It's music to my ears to hear that you enjoyed it so much,
Yes, the staff at Licks is very friendly and do a very good job at serving you.
I'm glad to hear that your meals were fantastic. The upper deck is the place to just sit and relax and look at the reef and the beautiful ocean.
Thanx again for the great review and dining with us on two occasions!
Hope to see you back at Licks again!
