We had an very good dinner tonight at Erva's. Our waiter recommended the Creole fish ($20 BZ) and mentioned it could be ordered as a combo with conch or shrimp.
My wife ordered chicken stew, I went for the combo with shrimp (they happened to be out of conch). It was a very nicely done gumbo-like dish, with good tomato/onion side salad and coconut rice. I was impressed.
The kicker, though, came with the bill: the dish was $35 ($17.50) -- not a terrible price for similar dish in the States, but very expensive for San Ignacio, Belize (and more expensive than anything I saw on the menu). The "combo" was fair sized, but not double-sized. It was simply a mix of fish and shrimp (six shrimp to be exact).
Unfortunately, feeling like we got a raw deal put a negative spin on the overall experience.
Though we wouldn't hesitate recommending Erva's, we recommend either sticking to items on the menu, or being sure to ask for the price first!
