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.

“Great meal”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Being from NY we kinda expect great food but Belize should be put on the map for great meals. Service was perfect, we loved the staff and always enjoyed dinner there 4 times, and breakfast 4 times. Get the fish and fruit plate

“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

The view of the jungle is fabulous and the food and service are excellent. We could see large iguanas in the trees while we were eating. At night it is also very nice. You can see the moon and the ambiance is very nice. They have live music on the weekends. Be sure to ask about it.

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Check out the Belizean breakfast. I love refried beans with my eggs and they do it very well. The dining at night is first class in a tropical, breezy atmosphere.

“Nice setting”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Though there was construction taking place during our visit, the restaurant was still very pleasant with seating on the veranda overlooking the pool and gardens. The food was above-average, with the exception of the coconut pie, which the four of us agreed was extraordinary.

“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.
