“Excellent First Meal on Caye Caulker”
Reviewed December 25, 2009

My wife and I picked Femi's for our first dinner on our Caye Caulker vacation and we were not let down. I had the whole snapper (it was indeed a whole fish) and my wife had the coconut shrimp. The beans and rice that came with the entree were delicious, though I nearly rendered them a fire hazard by over applying Femi's homemade hot sauce. It is very spicy. The drinks were great and the setting is tough to beat.

Certainly recommend.

“Good deal in a great location...always open?”
Reviewed October 22, 2009

We eat at Femi's pretty often. It is a cute little restaurant perched out on a dock over the water with swings at the bar instead of chairs. It really makes for a great tropical experience. Lots of options for fish, lobster, and conch. I haven't been there once when it was not open. Very early morning and late at night. This is great when traveling with small kids. The food is a great value, very tasty, and consistent. I recommend taking advantage of their specials.

“You know you lare having a good time when you are sitting by the sea at Femi's watching the sun go down.”
Reviewed October 15, 2009

What we like most about Femi's is unquestionably its idyllic setting but also its location just off the main drag and right over the water, its good food, its good service and Femi herself and her husband who are always there to make sure the customer gets satisfaction. It's the whole package. Check it ot

“Great food, one of the best locations, good service”
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.”
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.
