I'd heard that Nahil Mayab was a unique restaurant, known for its Mojitos, but it has the coolest ambiance I've seen in Belize. I was told that it took the better part of a decade to create, and that just one wall of the bar took 6 months to sculpt, and after being there, I believe it.
It's hard to describe how unique it is. Imagine every square inch of the walls having Mayan glyphs on them. All around the ceiling were glyphs, and the columns had stella on them. I truly can't believe it exists in Belize. The detail on the waterfall wall is outstanding. It's done with painted plaster of paris or something, but words really don't do it justice, you'd just have to see it to believe it.
The drinks were good, and strong. A friend took me there for happy hour to show me the place, and after seeing the decor, and hearing about how it took years to build, I decided I must come back later for the food. The food was outstanding! I sat at the bar, since I wanted some more drinks, and to hear the bartender's take on the place. The Hawaiian mojito was really good(they are half price during happy hour), as were the peach and blue margaritas.
I had the bartender, Veronica, who made great drinks, suggest food, and Creamy Mushroom Chicken it was. It was divine! If I had stayed in Orange Walk another night, I would've gone back to try something else. The place was pretty full the entire time I was there, which says a lot. Yet, the food came out in good time, and had wonderful presentation. I can't wait to return!
