a cute Texas couple just took over the ownership of Herbal Tribe. They have kept the island ambeince, same personel, and menu items. While adding great new items and dessert
We really enjoyed the new artwork added to the dinning tables. They feature Belizean
animals and sea life. While we were there, a couple of French artist were painting an
aquatic scene behind the bar----unique and colorful. Still dinning on the sandy beach floors!
Favorite Dish: Christines's banana nut bread with a cup of java in the morning --while watching the
sea side views.
Cale's mango salsa topped seafood and the new breakfast tacos.
And of course you have to try Geo's pizza.
Good food. Very relaxed atmosphere as well as service.
Favorite Dish: The best thing first thing in the morning?
How about Bob Marley, fried jacks and a freshly squeezed orange juice?
....and sand under your feet
With some of the other reviews I had my doubts. Wow was I surprised. The Conch Fritters were unbelievable. I had Chicken tacos which were delicious and my husband had a good pizza. The meal was slow buts what Caye Caulker is all about. If your in a rush you will soon learn to relax!
Favorite Dish: Conch Fritter hands down. (I am originally from New England a these clam fritters put us Yankees to shame)
On our noon hour walk back to our hotel from the Split, we passed by the Herbal Tribe restaurant, whose appearance enticed us to sit down and check out it's lunch menu. Because they did not yet have a day-time liquor licencse, we were invited to start off with drinks of lemon on ice (US$2 each) while we made our decisions. I decided to try their Fish Cerviche (a mixture of fish, cilantro, onions and orange peppers) with Tacos (US$5), which I spiced up a bit with a bottle of nearby Marie Sharp's Habanero Pepper Sauce! Sue played it safe with a Chicken sandwich and Fries. The meal was OK and came to a total of US$20 with a tip.
The dining area had a very nice section of paintings and murals along one wall that Sue began to video, until one of the staff approached and said it was not allowed because we might be planning to sell the images!
Favorite Dish: The next morning, we decided to give Herbal Tribe one more go, because their breakfast menu had looked interesting. I ordered a Spanish Omelette, which turned out to be Spanish scrambled eggs with refried beans and white toast (US$4.50). Sue had a Fruit Plate of banana, watermelon, papya and canteloupe with white toast (US$5.50). Combined with a cup of coffee and two more of those lemon drinks, the total cost of US$18 seemed to us to be a bit pricey for breakfast. We decided to stick with the Sand Box after our experiences at Herbal Tribe.
Herbal Tribe is a great bar and they also serve food, but the kitchen closes at nine o'clock. If you come when the chef is about to go home you might get a very raw chicken like we did... But at least they have good drinks, nice music, friendly staff and many locals hangout there in the night.
