“conch soup; good service”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We wandered around San Pedro looking for Conch Soup. We found some available at this restaurant. It has groomed sand floors and a marine décor. It was full of locals and the service was very good. We each were given a conch soup with rice for $32 BZE total. The soup was delicious and they accommodated our gluten allergy by checking with the cook.

“Fresh fish, average atmosphere”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

The snapper was delicious and the service was good. However the place was stuffy and hot, and the windows were not open. One of our party had to leave because he got so hot it made him sick. Also, several of us got bug bites from the sand. We still had fun and enjoyed the meal, but a few fans, open windows, and bug spray would have helped the experience a great deal.

“Sand Floors”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

We shared the Seafood platter combo which included blackened snapper filet, shrimp, conch, 1 lobster and 2crab claws, served with coconut/bean rice. This was 68 B. dollars and was not a lot of food for two to share. Wilbur our waiter was attentive and refilled beverages promptly. The sand floor was interesting but make sure you you spray your ankles and legs with bug repellant before you visit.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We brought our freshly caught fish to The Reef so that they could cook it up for us. We chose to have them cook it coconut curry style and cajun style. Both dishes were absolutely DELICIOUS! I would not hesitate to go back again.

“Great Value”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

I was told to go there by Joe's Bike rental. I am glad he told me. It was one of the few places you could get real veggies and the food was perfect for what I wanted.
