    Unknown: Don't leave without eating Chicken Beans and Rice

    The Belizean style of BBQ chicken is fantastic. I was starved after our cave tubing excursion, and they had a small BBQ joint right where we parked our bus. The locals were really cool, and friendly beyone belief. I got a plate with chicken, beans and rice, pasta, delicious garlic bread, drink, and a piece of homemade chocolate cake for $5!! What a deal

    Directions: At the cave tubing site

    Good food, Santana and nice people

    by arbeid74 Written Oct 28, 2003

    in the "main" street during daytime it is an open area between 2 wooden houses.
    In the evening it changes into a open air bbq place, where the local policeman ( you cannot miss him due to his size)
    gives you a very warm welcome, accompanied by a continues stream of all santana songs.
    You can have bbq chicken, ribs, lobster, stingray accompanied by a nice cold beer.
    The taste is superb and the atmosphere very good.The service is very nice with a smile and a chat.I loved the place

    Address: Main street

    ?? If you know please tell me!: Dutch Delight

    by susmraz Written Jan 19, 2003

    My friends and I stumbled upon this little place. For the life of me i cannot remember the name, but i can give you directions. If you go to were the Lazy Iguana is, and take a left on the dirt road going towards the airstrip you will come along a little organic shop run by a aesthetically beautiful dutch family who speak many languages. There they serve breakfasts like homemade granola with homemade yogurt fresh walnuts, fresh fruit from their trees and rainforest honey. You can also drink "jungle juice," illegal in the U.S., or an omellate with dutch cheese and fresh herbs. what a treat. be sure to check it out!

    Favorite Dish: Granola, tea, Jungle Juice, fresh squeezed juices, eggs, you name it, it was incredible. I even tried to take some home, but that didn't work.

    Address: near the airstrip

    The dirt floor of this 'restaurant' made it really look authentic. Well, it was authentic, anyway. I think it was more of a home than a restaurant, but the food was good.
    No lines, no wait. No seats to speak of. Evokes memories of a Belize I used to know. A time, long ago, when as a youth, I traveled. Magical, now, as then.

    Favorite Dish: I dunno where the restaurant was, although you can be sure it was NOT a tourist joint. They served iguana in a spicy sauce, and iguana eggs....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Pick any restaurant on the main road, they're all just as good.
    Every restaurant has a unique vue on the Carribean Sea. Some also have docks.

    Favorite Dish: Sea food - could it be differently? - is fabulous. You can order your lobster in the morning and you can be sure it'll be freshly caught for you!

    politigal's Restaurant Tip

    If you love seafood, this is the place to go, if you don't like seafood, stay on the mainland. You will most likely be served something that was plucked from the sea no more than a few hours before it is placed in front of you. Conch, a large shell fish is one of the specialties of Ambergris Caye, I had a conch burrito that was wonderful. The food has a very Jamacian flare, lots of red beans and rice, fried bannanas, very few vegitables.

    I don't know its name and I'm not even sure it has but in three days on the island I have tried most of the restaurants if not all and this is definitely my best liked: fish fillet or a whole fish cooked on a grill like the one you can see under the palm in my pic, served with curry rice, mashed potatoes, beer and/or lime juice, on wooden tables, in the open air... and you can find this place going towards the airport, it's the last restaurant on the right but do not mix it up with the posh one just next the airport ;-)...
