We had lunch here one rainy day in December--it was great being under cover while watching and hearing the rain outside. My shrimp scampi skewers were delicious, service was great, and loved the open air-like set up of the restaurant!

Barb S....We really appreciate you taking the time to write this excellent review. And yes we love the rain while in the Restaurant.....The sounds, the Tropical Aromas all while staying dry in nearly 80 degree temperature......Another great reason to love Belize.....Oh and yes of course the Shrimp Scampi Skewers.....Also one of my lunch favorites.....

Don't let the ride down a long dirt road stop you. Wasn't that long but at one point we wondered if our hotel staff had given us the correct directions. This place is well worth it. Excellent meal and they were more then happy to make a small change to mine to accomodate my gluten free needs. had a nice chat witht he owner, who is from Wisconson and his wife is the chef. Food and service both excellent.

about 2.5 miles south of town, over an unpaved road filled with small swimming pools lies the balck orchid. a couple from california built a beautiful building, then proceeded to produce some of the most delicious seafood ever. the recipes were imaginative, flavorful and done to perfection. the server was a charming young lady who worked hard and did so with a smile. she is a delight. the owners are outgoing, funny and very industrious. all this combined to make this penultimate dinner on ambergris caye one of the best meals ever.

Many wonderful meals including fantastic breakfast menu. Judy Ann and Tom do an excellent of providing fine dining and ambiance. We caught Wahoo, Baracuda, and small tuna on a day fishing trip and Judy Ann prepared the fish and served it family style for our group. A meal to die for.
