Our first night in Orange Walk we walked [no pun intended] to this wonderful restaurant from our hotel! Menu was extensive [lots of seafood] and the alcoholic drinks were enticing! Two gals got "sex on the beach" and the guys drank tried and true Belize beer! We had a great time. Food was delicious, staff friendly and the atmosphere was... More

The Nahil Mayab is an interesting restaurant, with a charming garden setting. Attention is paid to Hallmark holidays as the restaurant is decorated for each event. The Mayan decor adds to the ambience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

If you're in Orange Walk, this is the place to eat. The Mojito was perhaps the best I've ever had, the unusual dishes will stimulate your taste buds, and George will provide the ultimate in service. All at an affordable price, in a pleasantly decorated space, with great tunes to dine by.

We ate here twice. One of the draws is the wonderful atmosphere. The bar is nicely done with some of the higher end spirits (scotch, for example) that aren't widely available. The indoor restaurant is nicely decorated and the outdoor area is a pleasure to eat in with lights strung out but not garish at all. The food was good.... More

The waiters are really nice, the place in pretty, the beverages are really good, I had a fish soup with coconut, IS AMAZING, the portions are big, like for two persons, my friend got one of the traditional chicken dishes and he ate everything, the prices are good for the quality and portions.

The ambience was good, the service was good, and the food was served very timely. We all had fish and it was delish.

I went to this restaurant in 2014 and was really pleased with the food and service. I wanted to go there again and I was checking their Facebook page and TripAdvisor prior. Both stated that restaurant should be open. Unfortunately nobody felt the need to announce on Facebook (although they are quite active there) that the restaurant is closed at... More

Dear LaVie2010, We have no excuses, except to say that it completely slipped us to put a notice on our Facebook page that we were closed from Dec 25-27. Our sincere apologies. Please note that we are open as of today on our regular schedule. We wish you a Happy New Year. Regards, Osmany Salas Owner/General Manager More

The food is good but we waited about 1 hour for the appetizer. It was really too long. We ate inside and the room is very noisy. It was not a pleasure moment

Hello enemsguern, Thank you for informing us about your experience. We pride ourselves in serving freshly prepared food within a reasonable time. However, last night we had issues with our Point of Sale ordering system which we have now corrected. Apologies for the noise. We had a full house including a happy crowd celebrating their friend's birthday. I hope you... More

We particularly enjoyed eating outside on their patio. The food was very fresh and delicious. Like many restaurants in Belize, the fresh fruit juices are superb. We will return to this restaurant when we are in the area again.

Food was good but the drinks were not good. The Orange juice was sour so we ordered ice tea which seemed to be a few days old . Would still recommend
