We actually ate here twice during our stay; once for breakfast, and then later in the week for dinner. Breakfast was actually pretty good. Great coffee, best eggs we had while there, and very friendly attentive service. Dinner got mixed reviews for the food, but again very friendly service (which is harder to find on the island than you might think!). By far the best part about this place is the view. Watching the moon rise over the reef erases any small disappointment with the food.

Owned by Cuban expatriates, the restaurant offers up authentic Cuban prepared cuisine, that unmistakeable island "sabor." The evening buffet, all you can eat, is rich, hearty and varied. There is interior and beach side seating with colorful decor.

If you're looking for the best value feed in town, look no further. For $28 (Belize), you get a huge buffet full of several meat dishes, great sides (potato salad, coleslaw, garden salad, homemade bread), and tea/coffee + dessert (four different homemade cakes, banana bread, biscuits and fruit). But the absolute star of the night was the amazing suckling pig roast. It was the juiciest, tastiest, most tender pork roast I've ever had. They have a special thing going there.
There's seating indoors or you can sit on the sand outside on the water's edge.
The staff are also really friendly, have fun conversations with you that only adds to the great island culture, and always encourage you to eat seconds and thirds rather than glare at you when you return to the buffet!
The only disappointment of the night was that my stomach wasn't big enough to keep eating!

We love pork, and couldn't resist the spit roasted meal. We'd watched it being roasted throughout the day, had spent some time almost next door at the Beach Bar jam session, and couldn't resist the all you can eat buffet at 6:30. All you can eat roast pork complete with crispy crackling, shrimp in curry sauce, vegetables, rice, potatoes, and cake for dessert. Yummy.

The buffet may seem to be expensive if you have been living in Central America for a while, but the food is all fresh and very good, and I know I drank my money's worth in good Cuban coffee, included with the meal. The pork and the "special sauce" (garlic mojo?) were wonderful, and the potatoes and salad completed the meal. Not to be missed.
