Went here the first night we arrived. I got the lobster special. It is possibly the best lobster I've ever had. The coconut rice is great too. My wife had a great chicken dish. It's a little south of town, but well worth it.

Hello dano31....Thank you so much for an excellent review.....Our staff is so happy to hear you enjoyed the Lobster.....I have to forward the credit to our Head Chef Hortense Gomez....Her local Belizean Recipe and Secret Seasonings add just the right amount of flavor to a fresh caught delight. Lots of warm breeze wishes from all of us at the Black Orchid Restaurant & Lounge........

we had lunch here. The fish and chips were fantastic as was the grilled cheese (think gourmet grilled cheese ok, don't judge me)! We would recommend for sure. Cute place and great service.

Kate G.....So happy to read this review.......Your comment about the Grilled Cheese Sandwich made us laugh....It took sometime before we perfected a Grilled Cheese sandwich that would meet our standards.....However, it has turned into a favorite for many of our guests and I'm soooo glad you like it.....Thanks for this great review and we hope to see you again.

On our recent trip to Ambergris Caye, we were very glad that Black Orchid re-opened while we were there! The owner, Tom, and his wife, who is also the chef, have created a great atmosphere and some really delicious food! Definitely worth a visit!

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!

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...
