On Saturday evening at about 10:30 in the evening, I decided to pay a visit to meluchi`s.
Apart from four friends of the management, the place was empty. I aske the female manager and she said she had no explanation as the place was well attended the previous night.

I ordered a Pina colada and what I got was crushed ice with blue and red sweet liquid.for 12 belizean dollars( or six US dollars)

I wanted to sample some food and ordered 6 chicken wings accompanied with some french fries. The portion of french fries was small( a handful) and not crisp. But the chicken wings were ok with a sweet sauce for 10 belizean dollars(5 US).

I left quite disappointed.

Dear vnazaire,

Thank you very much for your honest feedback, we always appreciate feedback be positive or negative as we can learn from both. I assure you that what you experienced is not the normal Meluchi's. We went through a period of management changes and staff changes and that gave us an unbalance in our operations. If you are ever back in Belize please stop by and we will make sure to make up for it!

Best Regards,

Roberto Harrison,
Marketing Officer

We were looking for a new lunch place that we hadn't tried before. We love wings so decided to try Meluchi's. We found out it was half price taco day (Tuesdays), so we had an order of wings which came with fries and some pork tacos.

The wings were very meaty with lots of sauce. If you like them drier, you might want to note this. The tacos were excellent.

We were the only patrons there at the time. The waiter was very friendly and helpful explaining the menu. The person cooking puts out some amazing food from that small kitchen.

Definitely a return to place.

Thank LeeMike

Fun place with good food. Took the family, was a little unsure if it was appropriate for two teen agers but we all enjoyed it. Good food, good music, great atmosphere, great friendly staff. We will definitely go back again next time we are in Belize.

Decent prices but not great happy hour prices. The drinks are satisfactory. It can be fun when there is a crowd
