“A welcome change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We stayed in San Ignacio at the weekend and since it rained every evening we ate at our hotel for the first two nights. Finally we decided to put-up with the wet and walk to Hode's. We were glad we did as we had good service in a restaurant which was very busy on a Saturday night and the food, boiled shrimp and roasted vegetables for mains was fine.
The place itself is pretty large with outdoor seating either in the garden or under a big roof (given the weather we chose the latter).

“Rice and Beans or Beans and Rice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Either way - the food was great! We enjoyed both lunch and dinner at the restaurant. The outside dining was cool and very comfortable.

“Nachos Supreme = Awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Get the Nachos Supreme IMMEDIATELY. Other food was good too. They deliver in town. Nice place to have a meal, or just a drink after your activities for the day.

“Not quite meeting their potential”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

I'm a regular at Hodes. They have a nice garden with outdoor seating and usually a cool breeze. But they often miss the mark with the quality of their food and lately the service has fallen flat. Some (not all) of the servers seem to have no enthusiasm for their jobs. I want to be greeted by my server with a smile and a bit of enthusiasm. I don't want to see them at the front counter with their heads on their arms looking bored. Hodes is a popular restaurant with locals and tourists and I know that they can do better. On the up side, I still believe their stewed chicken with rice and beans is the best in town! It's what keeps me going back.
