Right next to the hotel st Christopher, delicious curry shrimp and good drinks to enjoy after a day of traveling. Can be buggy, but the open air is worth it, and they will provide bug spray. Very nice owner and wait staff. Wifi, too!

We had dinner at the Paniscea Restaurant tonight. The atmosphere was awesome and the location has got to be one of the best in Orange Walk. We had the cevechie apply, garlic chicken, and the sea bass. Everything was awesome. Not exactly traditional Belizean and at US prices nonetheless - but the food was excellent. My only criticism is that they only fill the draft beers up 2/3s of the way to the top. This would never fly in a Canadian restaurant. Anyway - check it out. We loved it.

Lovely location along the river. The bartenders are inventive, friendly and willing to listen if you want something tweaked for your own taste. The food is great- a bit more pricey than others- but well worth the cost-- great food, fresh preparation, wonderful combo of flavors. Outdoor seating only so mosquitos may be a little problem sometimes, so bring your bug spray. Really lovely place.

Next to the river and below the House of Culture, this restaurant and bar was a great find for us. The selection was superb, prices were very reasonable and the quantities huge compared with other restaurants we've been to in Belize. There was a great variety of dishes and the food was delicious. The Canadian and Belizian owners/partners have done an amazing job re-establishing this restaurant and the surrounding area. highly recommended,

Close to the river and a super short walk from Hotel De La Fuente. The smoked pork chop was seriously one of the best things I've tasted...anywhere! The snapper was also amazing. Perhaps not every item on the menu is super 'authentic' it was all amazing. If this place keeps up the good work, and keeps getting people to try them out...Nahl Mayab has some serious competition. This place is not to miss if you find yourself in Orange Walk!
