“Great food, one of the best locations, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2009

This restaurant was great. The location is one of the best on Caulker; tables sitting on a deck over the sea. Great view from your seats. We ordered shrimp kebobs and lobster kebobs. They were fresh out of the ice chest directly onto the b-b-q pit. We drank Belikins and fruit smoothies. It was relatively inexpensive as well; we paid $70 for 7 people to eat and have drinks.

“We ate here 4 times in 5 days.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2009

On a recent trip to Caye Caulker with my wife, this was by far our favorite restaurant. We ate here 4+ times (not including stopping by for drinks and shakes) over a 5 day trip. It's that good. Femi and her husband can be found behind the bar, and the friendly service is worth the wait. (There are signs that apologize in advance for how long the food can take to cook -- like everything else in Caye Caulker, Go Slow! Though honestly we didn't notice anything that took too long.) .. order another Belikin and enjoy your wait with the beautiful views around you while waiting.

“Never wanted to leave this restaurant on the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2009

Femi's Restaurant and Lounge was missing from all the guidebooks we read. It's a shame that someone might go to Caye Caulker and not realize Femi's is a destination restaurant. Femi's is right on the water and it's laid-back, homey feel is inviting. But its food rivaled the location itself for top honors. The specials change nightly, but get the whole snapper if you can and the seafood chowder was certainly worth writing home about. The smoothies and mocha drink were good in the morning, afternoon, and evening.
