A regular lunch stop which is always on our rotation. Standard Belizean fare to pretty good, but somewhat expensive pizza. The galley is a local joint on the back/neighborhood side of the futbol field in the middle of the village. Sit on the patio and enjoy the usual breeze and stewed or fry chicken. You won't be disappointed.

This place is a ripoff. Poor quality ingredients, super high prices. Ordered a meat lovers, came with what looked like opaque worms all over the top. Turned out to be at least 1/4LB of semi-cooked bacon fat swimming in grease. I took all this fat right back to them and chewed them out. Noone really cares, they act like I... More

Got food to go recently - very friendly owners. Had a drink while waiting for food and listened to some nice music. Fried food not greasy and servings large. Recommend restaurant - behind the ball field - just walk around the fence. They deliver. One of the first restaurants opened in town.

We ordered for delivery while staying at Caps Inn. We had the pizza and burgers, plus several appetizers. The service was quite fast considering they had to deliver it too. The food arrived hot, orders were accurate, prices are fair. Would order from them again.

Only visited here to pick up a couple of Pizza's. Two pizza's cost $80 BZ ($40 USD) which I found rather expensive for Belize. The pizza's were very good. Can't comment about anything else here.

This place is a little bit off the beaten path behind the soccer field. It was recommended to me by a local when I asked where I could get decent pizza. It was very cozy very small and the food was very good. Outside dining available of course. Unlike many of the restaurants in Belize the service was also very... More

This was one of my favorite meals that I had while staying in Belize for 17 days! I dined here with my husband and two other couples. I ordered the fish and my husband had the pork chop. Both were delicious. The waiter was great and our food was brought out in a timely fashion. I felt the food was... More

We tried The Galley tonight to compare pizza with our other local favorite and have to say it was so much better. Meaty, cheesy, crispy crust, and what a pizza should taste like! Thank you Nick for the great pizza and lobster fritters. We'll be back again for sure.

What Nick's restaurant lacks in ambience, he makes up in service and quality of produce. Pizza was loaded with vegetables and meat with a nicely cooked crust. Large pizza was big enough to feed 4 adults. It is worth the hike across the soccer field or he will deliver your order anywhere in the village.
