Syd's has some of the most excellent comfort food on the planet. We went to Syd's every day we were on Caye Caulker. We enjoyed giant portions for only about 5 USD each. The restaurant is unassuming, but clean; the food excellent, and the staff friendly. I would most certainly return.

Tired of paying extortionate prices for mediocre food, we asked a local who recommended Syd's.
We got there around 5pm only to find it closed (it was low season), luckily for us by 6pm the doors were open wide.
Super friendly staff, really fast service and the best ever fried chicken!
All the ravings about the chicken are spot on! Both of us ate very well for far less than what we paid for a skinny pizza at Caulker Pizza.
Visit Syd's on your first day and you may never go elsewhere.

The food was good, but they did not have several of the menu items. That may have been due to the fact it is slow season and not many people on the island. The chicken was ok but not sure that it lived up to all the hype.

I don't even know where to begin with all the various reasons as to why you should eat at Syd's......The food (best stewed chicken anywhere - biggest pieces of meat). The price ($4US and for us small eaters, you have take home). The quantity (small eaters have take home, big eaters won't leave hungry). The staff (I ADORE ADORE ADORE Nigh and Auntie - they make this place special). I eat here just about every day as I love the food, I love the price and there's something special about hanging with the locals who make you feel like family. Oh...and you have to have to have to enjoy the whole fish (steamed) at least once! OMG!!!!

We visited Syd's in April twice. Had to come back again this trip. The food is fantastic and service homey. They fix some of the best fried chicken anywhere and the burritos are great, too. This is where the locals come to eat. Prices reasonable and you feel right at home.
