Had their special cilantro chicken with rice and beans. Good portion, great flavor, chicken maybe a hair overcooked but not completely dry. The beans served in the side were amazing.

Wandered around town on a rainy night and when everything else was closed we stumbled into Cenaida's. Ate here in a large group and within a short period we were having our drinks and ordering the special of the day (cilantro chicken). VERY pleasant surprise!...More

Our last night in Belize we had the good fortune to stop by Cenaid's for supper. We ordered the special, which was Coconut Red Snapper. It was delicious, and was a unanimous "best meal" Belize. Highly recommend for quality and price.

Went here based on reviews and thought I walked into the wrong place. Smelled a bit rank upon entry, dim lighting, drab interior. Fair enough, I thought, here for the food, damn the ambiance. Two disinterested ladies behind the counter - no worries, it's about...More

We came here based on reviews and were not disappointed. The traditional stewed chicken and coconut rice and beans was a fantastic start to our trip. My boyfriend had the coconut fish special and it was delicious. Great food at an even better price!
