“Great local gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

Recommended to us by a local, Little Kitchen didn't disappoint. We ate here two nights ago. It's hidden back in a neighborhood off the main drag and up a couple of flights of stairs. The night's menu is on a chalk board. We all ordered the creole lobster, which was delicious and each entree came with a full plate of three side dishes (mashed potatoes, sautéed zucchini and pasta). The cook and owner is an older woman with a friendly smile. We felt like we were eating home-cooked specialties. Great find!

“Good view, meh food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

This place is in a really weird spot in a neighborhood off the main drag. You get a decent view of the backside of the island once you get to the rooftop where it's located. They had about 10 drinks on the menu but were out of everything except lime juice and rum (seriously you're out of rum and coke?). The GF got jerk chicken which wasn't great. It came covered in a strange tasting BBQ sauce that I wouldn't place as jerk seasoning. We also got lobster which was ok. Overall, it's an interesting trip to get there and a nice view but I wouldn't expect this place to amaze with the food.

“Surprise gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

An adventure to find, hand painted menu, in quiet working class neighborhood, but worth the search. Good food, very reasonable prices, and good service, will go back!

“Worth finding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

This excellent little restaurant is well worth scouring the back streets of caye caulker for. We went there for lunch and had some of the most delicious lobster was had on the island - the plate of lobster tails was huge - so many mouthfuls of yumminess, and the whole lobster was perfectly grilled. Both meals came with plenty of sides, and a rum and lime drink on the house. The outside of the restaurant is very unassuming, but it is worth persevering up the stairs - it was clean, welcoming and delicious, and very good value for money.

“One of our favorites!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

This was one of our top three meals while on vacation. The service is warm and inviting and the atmosphere as well. And the food!! It was delicious. We had 10 people and a variety of meals and no one had a bite of food left on their plate. It was one of thr best meals I have ever had. If its available- try the jerk shrimp. And the lobster is equally as delicious. Price was right and service was fantastic. A must try for sure! Oh and the kids said it was the best watermelon juice anywhere.
