When we sat we we greeted with a "roach" that the prior dinners left behind. The couple we were with were from Colorado and were use to it. It added to the local flavor. Willy and his partner Belle were gracious hosts and servers. Six of us had pork, fish and chicken. All with Willy's special BBQ sauce. Very good... More

Wish Willy is a legendary spot on Caye Caulker but this was my first visit. It's Willy, his grill, and some picnic tables so it definitely has a 'no frills' feel to it but the food is absolutely mouth watering. Our group had grilled chicken, conch, and barracuda. We all sampled each other's dinner and all agreed we would have... More

Relaxed atmosphere. Grab a table and one of the staff will wander over and tell you what's on offer that night. Normally a selection of fish or meat with rice and BBQ'd veg. We got one pork chops and one shrimps to share. Flavour of the BBQ chops was insane! Not as cheap as we thought it would be but... More

We'd heard so many great things about this place... What a disappointment when we saw the poorly decorated garden in which we had dinner. The table was very uncomfortable. The service was reggae style, quite pleasant, but very slow... Food was tasty but we had to stop in another restaurant after our dinner at Wish Willy as we were still... More

Great hosts, great food. We had forgotten our cash and they let us eat/drink and come back later to pay! Nice trust!

This place is hilarious. You seat yourself. You can either bring your own booze or grab endless Belikin Beers out of their cooler. There is no menu. You get a choice of beef, chicken, pork, fish and shrimp. The food is great, the atmosphere better and you are sure to have a great time. Go for the experience and the... More

This place was great! Menu was dependent on the day and was great! Willy is a great owner and very friendly. Friends of mine told me to make sure I went here and I am glad I listened. Will definitely go again.

just go early check its open, what time, what food, get your group together and go have fun....if you're alone, no worries, most people eating here are cool anyway, check out the sunset then get some nice Belizian food. I'm veggy gluten intolerant and it was no problem...
