Cool bar & hangout place, but based on our experience, don't count on it for food. The shrimp ceviche was 90% onions, peppers and tomatoes, and 10% shrimp. To add insult to injury, it was expensive.

Very accommodating to our large group, made the night so fun! Took care of the Bride and Groom to be, and the plethora of family. Delicious good, and great drinks too!

Not my favorite on the island! Drinks were not good! Went once and never returned! Great scenery but not worth it the overpriced drinks!

This is a good place to hang out for a while, have some beers, or try the coconut mojito! So good! I think I was the oldest person there, i'm only 48! ;)

Great location to look over the water, take a quick dip close to the deck (watch out for boats) with a cheap drink. We waited a long time to close out our tab during happy hour one day. But definitely try it out at some point!

Spent the day on Caye Calker with my wife. We stopped in for a drink and a snack around lunch. Friendly staff, good drinks and a reasonable bar menu for food with larger meals as daily specials (including lobster). Wonderful views, nice music and plenty of things to do including laying out on the dock, swimming in the channel, kayaking... More

Good place to hang out at sunset by the water. Great 2x1 happy hour 5-6pm every day when a good crowd turns up.

The Lazy Lizard offers one of the best places in Caye Caulker to hang out, enjoy drinks and fully enjoy the go slow vibe. Go upstairs and take in the views of the split and people swimming and sun bathing.

Hi phil0859, Thanks for your review. Upstairs is my personal favorite spot to sit and have something to eat and drink. Love the views from up there. Hope you had a chance to taste some of our delicious food from the restaurant!! More

This is the place to hang out during the day in Caye Caulker, the split is beautiful, but the food and drinks are expensive and there was no one waiting on tables during the two hour we were there.

Thank Gloria F
Tom A, Guest Relations Manager at Lazy Lizard, responded to this review

Hi Gloria F, Thanks for your review! I will definitely pass on your comments about the slow table service. Odd to hear that since we have multiple wait staff working the tables and sun tanning crowd. Hope you make it back again soon to see all the big changes going on at the lazy lizard! More
