“Must Try!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

I can't say enough about this wonderful restaurant! Everything we tried was good. The owners were so friendly & welcoming. I tried the coconut rice from other places-This has the best Coconut Rice in town. You must go there & try it! Hubby had the tri-tip & still talks about it. He's very picky on what he eats so you know it's very good when he loves it. It was hard coming home & cooking after being at this wonderful place. We can't wait to get back to Belize!! Tahnsk Guys!! We Will be back!

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We rented a golf cart to cruise around the island and stopped at the Black Orchid for dinner. The owners were so warm and friendly. We found out we are from the same town in the US! Our dinner was wonderful. We started out with an appetizer of calamari which is the best we've ever had. I ordered the orange crusted grouper and it was amazing. My son and husband both had the shrimp which they savored every bite. We hope to return next time and save room for dessert. Judyann and her husband have created a restaurant that is truly fabulous. The enterance is wide open as you walk in and reminded me of something out of the movies. Thank you both...

“"Sunday Brunch": the best on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Just a few nights ago we had an excellent Seafood Pasta for dinner.
We returned for Sunday Brunch . . . . it was crowded; we got one of the last tables.

Excellent atmosphere, the best brunch on the entire island. Their homemade baguette is indeed the best bread on the island !
Friendly and quick service . . . brunch comes with a Mojito or another tropical island drink of your choice.

“A great addition you must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The front of this lovely restaurant is wide open, and like so many of the other well-considered details, the openness adds nicely to the ambience. Everything at Black Orchid was great, from the friendly and attentive staff to the truly delicious food. I agree with another reviewer who said you must try the eggs benedict for breakfast- really special.

If you are staying in the heart of San Pedro, it will take you about ten or fifteen minutes to get to this restaurant in your golf cart. But of course that drive is part of the fun, and it really is worth the trip to try this lovely place.

I noted that they had a long table in one side of the restaurant, so evidently they can accommodate large groups. They also have intimate booths on the other side of the room, so they have a nice range of options.

Black Orchid is a wonderful addition to the island!
