“River life”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Riverside Cafe is like going home from a long trip. The locals hand there, people that are going to Cayes or fishing gather there, MR. Egburt and Ms. Madeline are very gracious hosts. The food is always good.

“Great food and beautiful river and ocean view”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

On May 2nd, we went to the old location and found out they had moved to a much nicer location which is located west of bridge. The food was great...I had fried fish with coconut rice and beans and my friend had chicken with rice and beans.
The owner Mrs. Maudeline Westby was very pleasant and provided us with great information about the country. The view and sea breeze was breath taking. We just wanted to sleep there after eating.

“Best place to try garifuna cuisine”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Tried my first taste of garifuna cuisine at the riverside and it was fantastic. Tried two local soups, the deliciously sweet Hudut and the hearty bundiga. Also tried Madeline's house special fish fillet, cassava fries and rum, tomato and soy sauce. Madeline is also very helpful with information for travellers. She let me into the kitchen and we made a little video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3bvbvkCiwI

“Resting place for all purposes”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

There were not so many places in Dangriga town where you can sit and rest for longer than the time you need to finish your meal, but Riverside Cafe was one of those few places. We had great lobster there, as well as a good chicken burger, with cold beers. We were also told that this was the place where all information on transport out of Dangriga can be obtained.

Had a really good meal at the Riverside Cafe. The lady that runs it is super helfpul and friendly. The snapper that I had was one of my best meals in Belize. Definitely recommend eating here!
