Dinners on the deck are pleasant. Breakfasts with tropical fruit and banana waffles recommend. Service was prompt and upbeat.

  • This restaurant is at San Ignacio Resort Hotel
Honoured with the title of Restaurant of the Year 2016 by the Belize Tourism Board, the Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant (located at San Ignacio Resort Hotel), offers a newly remodelled air-conditioned dining hall that boasts exceptional views of the hillside property.

The menu is international with all the flavours and the best of Belizean cuisine featuring meats from the family's ranch, Running W Brand Meats. Dining outdoors very often includes the visit of resident birds, including toucans, that come to feed on nearby trees making for a unique "dining with the birds" experience. Some favourites include specialty steaks as well as tasty Lebanese dishes derived from the family's recipes.

Running W Steahouse & Restaurant's Lobby Bar is open to the outdoor dining area and offers a modern Baroque themed décor. In this relaxed, open concept and air-conditioned setting, guests can enjoy an innovative selection of classic cocktails and Belizean mixology offered alongside a menu of light plates. With live music on some weekends, the Lobby Bar is the perfect place for an afternoon drink, early aperitif or, late evening cocktails.
