This dinner and performance was a spectacular evening for our family.
The food is delicious and unique and the dancing and drumming is high energy.

The location was about a 15 minute taxi ride from our hotel the Blue Tang inn.
The venue itself is fairly low key but comfortable and the staff made us feel very welcomed.

They gave us a welcome drink and then an interesting history of the Garifuna culture,
The food was prepared and laid out on a table buffet style with curry rice,rice and beans,2 types of fish,a meat dish,bread,and much more as well as dessert.
the food was plentiful and tasty.
Then the performance with dancing and great drumming and singing.All of us joined in the dancing and after the show we played the drums and took photos with the whole family and performers.
Overall it is a great night out,lots of fun and an excellent cultural experience.We were thrilled that we were able to have this memorable experience!

Highly recommended!!!

Julia and the rest of the staff were absolutely amazing. The food was excellent, the cultural education memorable, and hopefully our dancing not too offensive. We had a great time and would certainly recommend that visitors to Ambergris Caye visit Black & White Cultural Entertainment Centere.

This family owned and operated restaurant and cultural center is a wonderful authentic experience! The food was delicious, and the portions were large for the price. The drumming and dancing with storytelling made for a unique experience in San Pedro, and a great insight into the Garifuna culture. So glad we stopped by and spent an evening here! This family is wonderful, and they really put their hearts into this place.

I had read the reviews and decided to go. We all enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was gracious the food was abundant. We would have liked to stay longer to listen to the music and enjoyed the beautiful night. Good deal and informative.
