“Awesome dinner, cool concept”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

The best part about the restaurant is the everything! Picnic tables in a backyard, awesome servers, cool music and amazing food. I think our favorite part is that you don't really order and just get what they are cooking. We had more than enough food and such a great variety. Jack fish, shrimp skewers, pork, beef, grilled veggies and coconut rice. It's a super chill place, would recommend it to anyone.

“yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Delicious fresh food served in an attractive setting-local fish, prawns, lobster all washed down with the local beer-an excellent way to spend an evening on this lovely island

“Great value meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Served family style. You get entree with sides and the rum punch is cheap and not watered down! Served in a yard at picnic tables. A must visit.

“Chillaxed Belizean experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

This place is an institution for a reason. The food is local, fresh and hot off the grill nearby your incredibly relaxed outdoor seating. I went with a large group of travel buddies and shared a BBQ buffet filling the length of our one big table. Willy definitely made sure everyone was well fed and watered (staff even visit the neighbors to trade beers if they don't have something specific you're after).

Yes, I imagine sometimes there'll be a longer than usual wait time for food, but that's a small price to pay for genuinely fresh seafood cooked to order on a random Belizean island. Chill out under the palm trees, have a chat with Willy and his friends, order an extra beer, and simply enjoy the complete lack of rush around you. You'll be glad for this experience.

“Not Impressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Sitting at our table, waited over 2 1/2 hours for our meals to come! Sure, i get the "island time" thing, but this was beyond rediculous. Almost walked out - Something I've never even considered at any restaurant before. Not worth the wait either. The food was stone cold by the time it reached our table, and the "jerk" sauce on both our dishes was nothing more than soy sauce and water. Extremely disappointing. Why on earth is joint rated so high?!
