“A delicious dinner in a family-friendly place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Habaneros sits on stilts, high enough to catch the sea breezes, in the middle of town.The hostess was very accommodating to our request for a table for six, four adults and two children, and the waiter was patient as we made our complicated order. Two adults shared a rib of roast pork with sides which they said was plenty for the two of them. The two girls shared a lemon garlic snapper plate. A caesar salad and an entree with a trio of appetizers (ceviche, conch fritter and crab cake) completed the order. Everything was delicious.

“Pricey but worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

We ate here on our last night in Caye Caulker. It was probably the most expensive meal we had in Belize but it was also one of the very best. The food is unique and gourmet, which you might not expect based on the name of the restaurant or the outside view--it looks more like a casual grill. However, at night the lights are turned down low and the restaurant takes on a romantic ambiance. If you are willing to pay more, this place is a must.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

The food was very good from start to finish! The prices are pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for. I didn't think that the service was very fantastic, however. Make a reservation!

“Expensive and poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

It is a very Charming place, but meal was really bad and very, very expensive!!!!!!! We ordered a chicken and a fish, and we couldn't distinguish each one from the other.... They had the same taste.... Both of them were overcooked. It's a shame, to serve frozen fish in a place like this, where is so easy to get fresh product. Service too slow. I wouldn't recommend this place. You pay as in a Michelin Star Restaurant, but you eat worst than in a fast food.....................................

“AHHH delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Cannot even come close to explaining how delicious this place is. Must get is the fish soup. My mom asked if the cook could come home with her because it was the best thing she has ever eaten in her life. and she is a well travelled woman. We got the glass noodle wraps which were so fresh and the fish platters were to die for. Staff is welcoming and the owner even gave us a ride back to our hotel as were nervous about walking back to the resort at night. Go here!
