We had ham and pineapple pizza and watermelon salad - service was pretty good as we were the only people in the restaurant as it was slow season, portions were good as we shared the pizza and salad

only on Caye Caulker Island can you eat a great sit down linen cloth and candle light dinner like this with a view of the barrier reef too. From a nice wine choice, the wonderful appetizers and a main dish choice that will surprise you.
They also have one of the best lattes and cappuccinos on the whole island in my opinion.

Our experience with the food was good. The food is expertly prepared and presented and can compete with high end restaurants in the US. We started with tasty Tuna Croquettes as our appetizer. They gave us puffed crackers with mango salsa instead of bread as a starter. We loved the pasta with lobster and shrimp, chicken piccata and the coconut crusted snapper with a delicious mango salsa. Their lime juice is very refreshing.

The only bad thing about our experience is that we were sitting outside on the deck and the table next to us decide to lean over the railing and feed stray dogs with their food. It was cute and sweet until one of the strays came onto the deck and to the tables. The waiters did not do anything about it, until we complained, as our daughter is afraid of dogs. I don't know if this is a common occurence, but it was a little disturbing.

Bottom line: Their food is excellent for human consumption. Beware, the stray dogs like it too!

Entering the restaurant, we tried to tell a man standing in the archway that we wanted a table for two. Playing on his phone, we assumed he didn't work there and as we walked past, he said "excuse me-can I help you?" - he was also wearing a baseball cap which I found strange for a waiter. The service from then on was terrible and quite frankly, very poor. I felt so sorry for the lady who clearly owned the place as the waiter really let the place down. He told us we had to wait for our meal because of the other group and then when we asked for something like olives in the meantime, he shrugged and said "what?" in a very rude manner. Although I felt sorry for the manager/owner, she didn't come over to speak personally to the other tables who had to wait for about 50 minutes after ordering due to other big group. It has good potential but from our experience (mainly with the waiter), we wouldn't recommend.

My wife and i ordered pepperoni Pizza and shrimp and lobster surfatelle, both were fresh and excellent. Service a little slow but we had drinks and enjoyed the conversation and wonderful sea breeze. Was worth the short wait to get fresh food so good.
