Description: Honoured with the title of Restaurant of the Year 2016 by the Belize Tourism Board, the Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant (located at San Ignacio Resort Hotel), offers a newly remodelled air-conditioned dining hall that boasts exceptional views of the hillside property. The menu is international with all the flavours and the best of Belizean cuisine featuring meats from the family's ranch, Running W Brand Meats. Dining outdoors very often includes the visit of resident birds, including toucans, that come to feed on nearby trees making for a unique "dining with the birds" experience. Some favourites include specialty steaks as well as tasty Lebanese dishes derived from the family's recipes. Running W Steahouse & Restaurant's Lobby Bar is open to the outdoor dining area and offers a modern Baroque themed décor. In this relaxed, open concept and air-conditioned setting, guests can enjoy an innovative selection of classic cocktails and Belizean mixology offered alongside a menu of light plates. With live music on some weekends, the Lobby Bar is the perfect place for an afternoon drink, early aperitif or, late evening cocktails.

“Right now it's under renovation....”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Tables are in the foyer and on an adjacent patio while renovation is done. Spoils the atmosphere a bit. Food was fine, if un-memorable. I'll bet it's a good spot when they're back to normal.

“Fantastic Food for all”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We stayed at San Ignacio Resort and Hotel and ate here every day for a week. We mainly at dinner here along with a few breakfasts. Our three children are picky eaters and they found numerous items on the menu that they very much enjoyed. Aaron and Johnny are wonderful servers here!!!

“Good steak, Really?”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I cannot believe other reviewers calling this a steak lovers paradise. Four of us ordered steak and we all thought it was the worst steak ever! The rib eye was very tough and although ordered medium rare arrived medium well at best. Service is good and the staff are friendly but the meal was a total disappointment.

“Steak Lovers Paradise”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I don't eat red meat in the US, because of the chemicals and treatment of the animals. The Running W Steaks are all grass fed, free range, delicious healthy organic meat, that reminded me the way beef is supposed to taste.

“Great setting and food”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Steaks tender and full of flavour. At San Ignacio resort hotel. Bit more expensive than other places in town but well worth it.They hosted a party here for us on our last night in San Ignacio with our friends and family. Thank you!
