    Tropicolada: Taste of Carribean cuisine nad Belize beer!

    by joiwatani Written Oct 5, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant is close to the seaport in Belize and fronting the cultural street. The restaurant has the colors of the Carribean: green, blue and orange.

    The restaurant has Carribean atmosphere, very cozy and busy. There is a computer in the restaurant where customers can log on and check their email.

    The atmosphere here is lively and people come here to drink the beer!

    My children shared a plate of the chicken and beans.

    St. George's Dining Room at Radisson Hotel: A Harbourside Oasis!

    by Bwana_Brown Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our next to last day in Belize, we made a harrowing and hot midday walk in downtown Belize City, as we made our first explorations in this rather rundown city. We were very relieved to switch to a taxi, which delivered us to the posh Radisson hotel, located on the harbourfront beside historic Fort George. We were both very hot after our walk in the tropical sun, so the cool, air-conditioned atmosphere of the restaurant immediately brought us back to life! It was also very nice to actually find a restaurant open on this practically 'dead' Sunday afternoon! The dining room was bright and spacious, with a great view out onto the Belize City harbourfront (second photo), and relaxing live music was being played by a one-man band.

    Favorite Dish: On entering the dining room, we first examined a great-looking buffet lunch going for US$19 pp. However, we were not feeling particularly famished, so decided to order a couple of different smaller dishes and share them. Their Club Sandwich with Ham Chicken, Bacon, Cheese and Lettuce on 3-layers of toasted bread with Fries (US$8.75) and a plate of Pork Satay skewers marinated with spices and BBQ-grilled (US$9.50) really did the trick for us! Of course, after being starved for wine in the far reaches of Belize, Sue thoroughly enjoyed her chilled glass of Chardonnay while I controlled my overheated body with two iced mugs of draft Belikin beer! With a tip, the total meal price of US$39 was well worth it.

    This restaurant also features a well-regarded Seafood Buffet each Sunday evening, also for US$19. Steve, our new-found English friend staying at the Seaside Guest House, tried it that evening and said it was one of the best meals he had enjoyed in quite some time.

  • Wish Willy's: Wish Willy's

    by Buckstop Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Wish Willy's just moved to a new location, near the split, behind Frenchie's dive shop. I'm lucky enough to live next door! Most days, I'll be over there for drinks and a sunset view from the rooftop deck, or for dinner, or both. Yesterday he made me a killer plate of lobster and snapper... the night before, believe it or not, we had sushi! Sushi's not so easy to find around here, but Wish did it right!

    There's no better place on the island to eat, and spend happy hour. Stop by... I'll be there.

    Favorite Dish: If you can get him to make you some sushi, its phennominal... or pasta with lobster tails. Or anything!

    Jaguar Paw Resort: Lunch in the jungle

    by Gypsystravels Updated Feb 6, 2009

    We were on an all day tour and breakfast and lunch were included in our adventure. Since we were cave tubing on the Caves Branch River which is located on the grounds of Jaguar Paw, our lunch included a stop at their restaurant.

    The restaurant was rickly decorated with Maya Frescos, rich woods and Mayan artifacts and decorative items. As we entered the restaurant we were greeted by the hostess and asked to choose our own seating. The tables are set up to accommodate 4 people and a nice couple from Southern England joined us at our table.

    The meal was a fixed lunch which included rice and beans, roasted chicken breast with a coleslaw and your choice of drink.

    The food was quite delicious and satisfying after especially after a two hour ride to get to the resort and an hour cave tubing.

    Favorite Dish: We had a fixed meal which consisted of rice and beans, roasted chicken breast and cole slaw and a juice of drink.

    Martha's Restraunt and Guesthouse: Good Eats

    by Neb2489 Written Sep 29, 2008

    I did not stay at the guesthouse, however, I did go to Martha's for dinner one of my nights in San Ignacio. Despite the very long wait for our orders to come (around an hour), the food was great, and the ambiance was very nice, with outdoor seating.

    Favorite Dish: The only dish I had was a very generously sized burrito, which was very good.

    Cafe Cayo: Great service and food.... a rarity in Belize

    by Bianca_Aguilar Written Jan 17, 2008

    During my stay in San Ignacio I visited Cafe Cayo on a VERY regular schedule. The food is amazing, everything is fresh and they have a variety of foods including both local Belizean and Guatamalan dishes but also traditional north american foods. It's a great place to go with groups especially when you have either picky eaters or a lot of different tastes. They have an extensive list of local and imported alcohol including decent WINE :) oh and very yummy desserts!

    On top of the food... they also have second-hand books for sale and a number of computers (with internet and printing) available.

    Good vibes... sometimes live Garifuna drummers... Sort of a central hub to the downtown with a large covered patio to watch the people and world go by.

    Favorite Dish: Garden salad with delicious homemade balsamic dressing
    Ocean Treasure - white fish in a wine-butter sauce with coconut rice and vegetables
    Banana Foster - warm banana with carmalized sugar poured on top (absolutely to die for) Also yummy banana bread for breakfast.....

    Wild Mangos: Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

    by bren1125 Written Sep 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on front street the best way to enter is from the beach. This establishment is one to be savored with the views and the patient staff. Do not hurry thru the meal. If traveling alone as I did, the service does not falter and you are not put in the hall to the kitchen. The owner makes a fantastic Mojito (rum/mint/sugar/soda) so order one with any of the appetizers but save room for your entree. The bacon wrapped shrimp is well balanced with a dipping sauce that makes the entire entree melt in your mouth. You receive 5 shrimp that are wrapped in a similar proscuitto slash bacon with a side of veggies that are crisp and flavorful. My entire bill was $48.00US cocktail(s), soup, entree, liquor. Bon Appetite!

    Favorite Dish: Again, I say the bacon wrapped shrimp. Succulent, juicy, flavorful. Presentation beautiful.

    Patty's Bistro: Great seafoods and soups

    Ambergris-FIDO'S: Decent food and nice party place

    by FireMike Written Jan 6, 2007

    This place had all kinds of different stuff on the menu, including a sushi bar upstairs that is only open certain days of the week. It's a cool thatch roof palapa (I think they said it was the biggest one in Belize). Right on the beach with a great bar.

    Caulker-Rasta Pasta's: Great Food! Great Price

    by FireMike Updated Jan 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a cool little restaurant on the beach owned by a woman and her daughter. I only saw the daughter, she was actually my waitress. You would think she was a tourist from Ireland with her red hair and freckles, but as soon as you hear her talk, you know she is local. Switching from perfect english to slick creole with each sentence.

    Favorite Dish: They have a varied menu but I HIGHLY reccommend the conch fritters, the burritos and the maccaroon cookies for dessert. The fritters are delicious and the burritos are HUGE (see picture).
    We were in Caye Caulker for 4 days and we ate here 3 times.
