The service was good and the location was convenient but I thought the food was a bit pricey for what you got. My husband ordered the Shrimp gumbo (he loved it) and I had the shrimp pasta. I couldn't finish the pasta bc there was too much butter. I would have been just as happy I think with tortas.

The location along the river couldn't be better. My wife and I have eaten here one evening and stopped by for coffee after a rainy morning. Both times the service was excellent, and Doug (the owner) took time to speak with us at length. I learned a great deal about local politics, places to visit, musical trends, and just had a great time. The warmth in his interaction with us enhanced what would be a wonderful dining experience on its own. I strongly encourage you to visit him and have a great meal.

We were tipped off about this little gem from a Swiss couple on our Lamanai River trip. I had a one and a half inch thick smoked and grilled pork chop with steamed vegetables and baked potato. They were able to cook an off menu vegetable coconut curry dish for my wife who was suffering from a vegetable shortage due to our starch laden Belizean diet. A short walk from the neighboring St. Christopher Hotel and the Hotel El Fuentes. The menu is North American cuisine. The food is prepared fresh to order in the kitchen which means this is not "fast food" it is great food.

A little hard to find (at the end of town by the river) but not to be missed. Lucy has done a wonderful job of good food and peaceful location. We were on our way to Chan Chich and this was the perfect spot to stop, eat, stretch our legs and then get going. This was all capped off by going to Popular Bakery just down the street...I would not go through Orange Walk without going to both these places!
