“The Place to Eat in Hopkins – Hands Down!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Great setting on the beach. The service is fast (for Belize). Make sure to look at the specials board before ordering. Chef Tony does a great job of providing multiple flavorful options (steak, chicken, seafood, pasta, pizza). The smoker on the beach and the pizza oven in the kitchen provide the best smoked meats and pizza in the area. This is the place to eat in Hopkins. Make reservations as they do fill up and will turn people away. Happy hour starts at 4:00PM and has ½ price beers and rum. Closed on Tuesdays.

Diner 1- Grape Fanta, Barracuda Bites (spicy flavor), chicken adobo (tender smoky goodness), coconut flan (great texture and subtle flavor)
Diner 2 - Squealing monkey drink (a lot of alcohol), Barracuda Bites (spicy), snapper in a cream sauce and pasta (snapper was tender and flavorful), amaretto cheesecake (dense heavy consistency)
USD $71.00 without tip

Diner 1- Barbecue pizza with chicken, green onion, and barbecue sauce (good crust and flavorful sauce), one Lighthouse Lager, and two Belikin beers
Diner 2 - Mushroom, onion, and pepperoni pizza (crust held up to toppings), and three Belikin beers
$57 USD without tip

Diner 1 - black and blue steak (very tender) with gorgonzola and mashed potatoes and vegetables (a little over done), coconut flan (the best around), and one Belikin beer
Diner 2 - jumbo shrimp (done perfectly) in assiago sauce and linguini, chocolate mousse cake (very chocolately), and mango daiquiri.
USD $74.00 without tip

Diner 1 - black bean nachos (only okay), chicken adobo (the best!!), coconut flan (texture and flavor are great), and two Belikin beers
Diner 2 - shrimp etouffe with rice (a little overdone), raspberry ice cream (great flavor from tropical flavors), and two Belikin beers

“Wonderful, Classy”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Great resturant right on the beach. The owners were right there to greet us upon arrival. Menu was wonderful, food delicious. Atmosphere cannot get any better being right on the beach. Waiter George was great. Stopped here because owners are from Alaska and so am I, they did not disappoint :)

The food was really tasty, plus it was awesome that we could walk up in our bathing suits and have dinner.

We tremendously enjoyed our dinner for four. Varied menu selections and good kids menu. I enjoyed the ribeye with fresh salad and vegetables. Very convenient to beach resorts. Make reservations.
