I loved loved LOVED this place, and so did my husband! He had the BBQ chicken and thought it was phenomenal. I told the waiter i was vegetarian, and told me they would fix me something good.

We ate here the first night on AC. The food was very good, and even though we didn't have a reservation, they got us seating quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals and their drinks. The piano player was a nice touch!

My husband and I have been to Belize many times and this was perhaps one of the best dining experiences we had. The food was wonderful from the mixed ceviche, shrimp with lime sauce to the shrimp with curry sauce, each better then the next. Even got to meet the owner Luis. Dont miss this place. I will definitely visit... More

We had read many very nice reviews so we were expecting a wonderful evening. The food was pretty good, but the service was terrible. The waiter performed the barest minimum and disappeared for long periods. The very idea that we might want a second beer or dessert did not seem to have crossed his mind. When we finally sent word...
