Caribbean and Central America Restaurants

  • Cuban Food

    Varadero Restaurants

    Directly across the street from Sunbeach, to the east, is a small outdoor patio bar that is open day and night. It is right on the corner, and you have to go down a few steps from the sidewalk to reach the tables. This little place often has music and we enjoy going here for a cold drink (3CUC for Coronas!) or a light lunch when we get tired of our...

  • Bahamian Food

    Nassau Restaurants

    Out of all the restaurants we ate at, Twin Brothers was the best. We loved the conch fritters (Bahamian specialty) and the strawberry daiquiris (the best). The drinks (non-alcoholic) were made with fresh ingredients. You can mix and match your desired fruit i.e. mango/strawberry, pineapple/mango, etc … The first time we went the waitress was nice,...

  • Metropol

    San Juan Restaurants

    Metropol is the worst restaurant in Isla Verde. My husband, my son and me went there and they served us a fish full of worms. We notify them and they said nothing at all and after all this we have to pay 74.00 for the food. Not Recommended. NONE

  • El Conuco

    Santo Domingo Restaurants

    Gloria (the guide) asked us if we wanted to shop, and I said no, so we got back into the car and drove to a restaurant called El Conusco. She said this is where all the tours go for lunch. It is well set up for large groups of people and has a buffet of national foods for people to eat. Egarrido explained to me that the word "conuco" is a Taino...

  • Frida's

    Antigua Guatemala Restaurants

    We had read good reviews of Frida’s on both VT and elsewhere and as it was just up the road from our hotel we were keen to try it for ourselves – and we were not disappointed. Frida’s is a Mexican restaurant themed around the life and work of Frida Kahlo, although the décor is such an eclectic mix that the theme is lost in places. On entering the...

  • Machu Picchu Restaurant

    San José Restaurants

    On my fourth trip to Costa Rica my girlfriend and I discovered this gem, I have always been disappointed in my restaurant experiences in Costa Rica and this restaurant changed my point of view.

  • Kentucky Fried Chicken

    Grand Bahama Island Restaurants

    We wanted to have lunch in Freeport and couldn't see any place to eat except Burger King, KFC, Subway etc. So we started out on foot to look for a place to eat. A local lady asked if she could help us, and we told her what we wanted. She led us to two local places but they were closed (as in not opening for lunch), so we finally ended up at KFC...

  • The Columbus Tavern

    Paradise Island Restaurants

    The Columbus Tavern is located at the small boat harbour of Paradise Island. From the first floor of the restaurant you have a nice view over this harbour and the adjacent bay. Everything on the menu is OK, but try out the Bahamian coffee at the end.

  • State Owned Restaurants

    Holguín Restaurants

    This place has not been in the guidebooks I have seen as it is relatively new. It has a covered area for dollar paying guests and another patio style area for people wanting to pay in pesos. I thought it was going to be much more expensive than it was but most entrees were about $3-6. Not sure about the peso menu. Service was polite but the food...

  • Smokey Mermaid

    Belize City Restaurants

    If you like classy places, stop by The Smokey Mermaid situated in the inner courtyard of the Great House Hotel in the Fort George area. A wonderful Caribbean ambiance is in the air at this restaurant with tropical fruit trees and plants adding to the lush setting. Eat inside or out, and try some the international cuisine which favors both Central...

  • Jake's Purple Space Monkey

    Placencia Village Restaurants

    We found the Purple Space Monkey to be very satisfying. We ate there for breakfast and enjoyed scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast, fry jacks, and orange juice, which all tasted great. We also used their WiFi and it was fast and reliable. We enjoyed live music while eating there for dinner. The nachos were great as well as the chicken teriyaki...

  • Hannah's Restaurant

    San Ignacio Restaurants

    Hannah's ingredients are for the most part organic. They apparently have their own farm from which they get their meat and eggs. You can definitely taste the quality. Also they have fantastic breakfasts. Great waitstaff- one of our favourites was "Mercy" One of the best hamburgers I've ever had!

  • Paladares

    Cienfuegos Restaurants

    Best food in town! We loved it! They serve cuban and international cuisine with a variable menu at a very reasonable price. The house has been resently restored keeping the beautifull colonial style of architecture in the area. This place is well located at the beginning of Malecon on 40 AVE. witch make it very accessible to new visitors. I visited...

  • Jambel Jerk Resturant

    Ambergris Cay Restaurants

    I checked out the Jambel Jerk Restaurant after my morning out snorkelling. I was quite hungry and did not want to wander far for a good place to eat. The Jambel did the trick. I am fond of Jamacian food in general and this place was just a short walk from my hotel. To my pleasure the food was good and they serve Red Stripe beer, which is a Jamacian...

  • Caliente's

    San Pedro Restaurants

    Caliente's is right on the beach, so you're able to eat your food and enjoy the sea at the same time. Everything on the menu is DELICIOUS!!!!! It's a family run restaurant and the staff is related in some way. The service is very laid back and they always have a smile on their face. As soon as you walk in the door, you are thought of and treated as...

  • Jovaninis, Ltd.

    Freeport City Restaurants

    This is a tiny restaurant, so either make reservations or go really early. It is small and informal, but has really good food that is not expensive. The first time we were there, 6 couples were celebrating something, and the table stretched almost the full width of the restaurant. They wanted pictures taken of the whole group, so I did that (4...

  • The Pub at Lucaya

    Lucaya Restaurants

    While roaming around the Market we got hungry and stopped in here. The food was pretty good, prices about average, the view was great, people were friendly but the service was OK at best, but all in all not a bad place to eat. This place was rather busy, we thought it kind of suprising for Christmas time. We would eat here again, the food range was...

  • Mopan River Resort

    Belmopan Restaurants

    Mopan River Resort's food is outstanding! Miss Pam, as gracious husband Jay likes to call her, has bookshelf after bookshelf in their hacienda devoted to cooking.

  • MacDuff's Bar & Grille

    Norman's Cay Restaurants

    The only place to eat on the island where someone else does the cooking is MacDuffs. We dinghied in one afternoon, and had drinks at the bar (didn't eat there). Bob had a sprite and I had a rum revenge without the rum. (Pineapple, orange & coconut). It was very good. During the super bowl, there was a super bowl party here, and the revelers tried...

  • Hamanasi Resort

    Hopkins Restaurants

    Hamanasi is one of the two big resorts near Hopkins. It is beautiful but very removed from the local community. It seemed like most of the people staying there were unaware that the Setlement day festival was coing on near by. The food here was excellent and at least slightly inspired by local fare but it was basically American fare.

    Alice Town Restaurants

    Restaurant sits on the top of a the rise looking out over the Gulf Stream. Service is attentive, and thoughtful. I had a wonderful lobster special and Bob had the catch of the day. The bread was hot and they gave us a pitcher of iced tea. There was lemon cake for desert.

  • Chub Cay Club

    Chub Cay Restaurants

    Restaurant is the only place to eat, and it has two sections - one for Club members and one for non- members. Restaurant good but expensive- cost $40 to $50 for the 2 of us to eat, picking the cheapest stuff (no $29 lobster), and drinking water. I asked for riggatoni, and after a considerable period they came back and said they were out of the...

  • The Berry Island Club

    Frazer's Hog Cay Restaurants

    This is small restaurant that is mainly for the guests at the hotel or the marina but if you call from Chubb Cay, they will come and get you (for a fee) and take you back. You have to pay in cash - no checks or credit cards or even traveler's checks are accepted. It is really good fresh food-Bahamian/Cajan ranging from $12-$23 for an entree....

    Crooked Tree Restaurants

    the man who had opened the room had disappeared but a nice young lady had appeared in the kitchen after we had asked the man if they served meals... so I went to her to get a confirmation that she was cooking just for us and to ask at what time they served dinner: she apologized saying she wouldn't have been ready till 18.30... and when back from a...

  • Dockside Grille Old Bahama Bay

    West End Restaurants

    The only game in town unless they open the hamburger bar on the beach. Very nice restaurant overlooking the marina with linen napkins. Very expensive - one of the most expensive meals we had on our trip. Cost $59.00 including tip for two of us, drinking water and iced tea and ordering cheaper things on the menu. I can't remember what we ate. Their...

  • Janet's Catering Service

    Highbourn Cay Restaurants

    Janet of Cool Runner (the name of a boat) makes very good bread (which we didn't get a chance to eat because of Bob's heart attack). She also will bring food to you if you ask by mid afternoon. You her call on the VHF radio (which is the method of communication on most of the islands). Janet catered an all-you-can eat (conch chowder, bbq ribs, mac...

  • Local food

    Puerto Rico Restaurants

    All sorts of Pork can be found in Puerto Rico. They love it! Pork, plantains, and rice are probably the 3 major food groups! Anyway, driving around you can find folks selling roast pork on the sides of the road. It is delicious! I recommend trying it, street food can be a concern for some people. But I can promise you won't be sorry! **Ps. It is...

  • Bahamian food

    The Bahamas Restaurants

    Bishops Point was recommended to us by a local. The restraunt was right on the ocean and the food was great. We tried the fried shrimp, clamari and some snapper. It's a little out of the way from Lucaya and freeport but well worth it. The beach is beautiful and the drive was nice too.

  • Caulker-Rasta Pasta's

    Belize Restaurants

    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. They have a...

  • Tropical Wings Nature Center

    Cayo District Restaurants

    Before we went to the butterfly farm, we decided to eat. Unfortunately, nothing that was on the menu was in stock. Eventually we decided on an egg salad sandwich. They were made right there while we waited (I think the eggs had been boiled in advance).

  • Sea Food

    Varadero Restaurants

    I tried on several occasions to go to the restaurant in the cave,, where you can buy a bottle and hide it in the walls, however it was never meant to be as even when supposed to be open they seemed to close early or open late. My first try I wasn't sure if they would open so I tried out El Retiro as advertisements for the various places to eat...

  • La Bodeguita del Medio

    Havana Restaurants

    There's a bar at the front that holds around a dozen people from which it is packed. The restaurant through the back is bigger. Unless though you are a real Hemmingway zealot, this is an unremarkable place. The other Hemmingway place is the Floridita a few mins walk away and while nothing mega to get excited about, is the better of the 2 to have a...

  • Senor Frogs

    Nassau Restaurants

    For the young at heart that don't mind a crowded place with loud contemporary music blaring and people trying to karaoke. Small dance floor, enjoyed this place immensely even though the age group was younger. A good place to let your hair down and dance & sing the night away. Ordered several appetizers. The grouper was delicious, the nachos so-so,...

  • Local Cuisine

    San Juan Restaurants

    Located in Old San Juan, where it seems no restaurant opens nowadays but posh and expensive "fusion" and "eclectic" restaurants, El Jibarito is a terrific landfall for those looking for some good traditional Puerto Rican food. The place is on the guidebooks and it is crowded with tourists and locals. Don't expect anything else than good food...

    more
  • Baskin Robbins

    Santo Domingo Restaurants

    One scoop of icecream in a small cup, one chocolate milkshake made from a scoop of icecream plus ice, milk (I think) and cream on top: $9.00. Was it worth it? Would you pay this at home? Nope. Nope. The mango icecream was very good and so it should be at $4 per scoop, but it wasn't $4 good.

  • Cafe Sky

    Antigua Guatemala Restaurants

    A great view of the city and volcanos. Be sure to go all the way to the roof - there is a small spiral staircase on your right when you reach the second floor. The chips - guacamole - salsa platter with a Zacapa rum makes for a pleasent afternoon nibble. Some backpacking aquaintences ordered the nachos - which was almost as large as their heads...

  • Nuestra Tierra

    San José Restaurants

    A nice, huge restaurant on a busy street corner on the east side of the city. Kind of touristy, with traditional dancers dancing during the busy dinnertime. Good enough though. Grilled pollo w/rice & beans and a potato salad I think.

  • Don Corleone Caribbean Trattoria

    Caye Caulker Restaurants

    Don Corleone's Caribbean Trattoria turned out to be one of my favorite restaurants in Caye Caulker. As soon as we walked in, I very much enjoyed the elegant yet cozy atmosphere of the place, and got a kick out of all the "Godfather" posters! Our waitress was very friendly and she brought us a menu that had such a great selection of pasta and pizza,...

  • Burger King

    Grand Bahama Island Restaurants

    When we went into Freeport on the jitney bus and went looking for a marine hardware store, tools and groceries, the Burger King was the first place we saw to eat. We looked everywhere, but were not able to find a local eatery. We didn't actually eat at Burger King, but the best we were able to do was KFC.
