“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

This beautiful ocean view restaurant was a perfect find in Belize City. The host Andrew was very informative about the country and city as a whole, he sat down and spoke with my wife and I for 20 minutes discussing the great things about the area.

For starters the shrimp ceviche was amazing huge hunks of shrimp with chips could have been a meal in itself. My wife had fried shrimp with red beans and rice, while I had fried conch with red beans and rice. The conch was delicious and in season while we were there. I would recommend this dish to anyone! Topping the meal off with a locally brewed Beliken beer is a great way to start your experience in Belize!

I would also like to state that prior to visiting Belize City I had read several bad reviews of the area, and our cruise line generally discouraged exploring the area. My experience exploring and talking to the locals could not be more opposite. I found the locals extremely friendly and informative of the rich cultural history of the area. I would encourage everyone to go experience the city for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

“"Great Food"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

This is a nice small restaurant underneath a palapa that overlook the sea. The atmosphere is really nice and the place is a mixture of locals and tourist. The food is really good and nice and cold belikins and different varities of drinks. I loved to take my family here to eat whether its lunch or dinner and the staff are great, sometimes the service can get slow when it really gets busy but the food is worth wait,that makes you relax along with its atmosphere

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This open air palapa was just what we were looking for. It has a beautiful view, charming staff, and a nice mix of tourists and locals. We started with an enormous cup of conch ceviche which was more than enough for 3 people to share. It had just the right amount of spice and the chips were great. We then had 2 fried conch and 1 grilled shrimp plate. All were fresh and delicious and the ambience was lovely. The entire bill with drinks and tip came to $110 BZ ($55US).

“The place to go !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Great place recommended by our guide Modesto....Great fish! Cold beers and a fantastic view....what more could you ask for. Did I mention Reasonable pricing.. They take a little more time to serve but that is because everything is cooked to order and is Hot and fantastic....Been a lot of places and this is one to return to .
