Best place to go for vegetarian food. The chef made us black bean soup with cilantro pesto and a couple of meat-free entrees. Highly recommend this place.

“Best Cadillac margaritas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

After all the hype and other reviews I felt a little disappointed. The service is good by the friendly and knowledgable owner but I guess I expected a little more. It was by no means bad and I would give it another go but I certainly wasn't blown away

“Very quaint garden setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ate here for dinner (it was not open during lunch hours). Our food was tasty and portions were substantial. Our server was friendly and attentive. Nice touch sitting amongst the beautiful exotic plants. A bit pricey, though.

“Great people, great food, at a good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

I loved the house made ginger ale. The owner and wait staff were very friendly. My sister had the best martini she had gotten in Belize. My steak was wonderful and had huge prawns on top that were sooo good.

The secret garden was delicious. Excellent food and service. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and was attentive with out being over bearing. Made excellent recommendations. Will definitely return & recommend.
