Enjoyed with friends. 4 happy clients leave the restaurant with full stomachs. Professional staff with good approach. And the kitchen could make smaller portitions. Next time again!

We were only in Belize city for a 1 night stopover and had no idea where to find a nice meal. We walked here from our hotel on the river at night, didn’t feel the safest but we were fine! Burgers were great!
