One of the most dynamic and interesting ethnic groups is the Garifuna culture. We offer a full presentation of our culture on request. Live Drumming Displays Food Dances Videos Information Clothing Language and lifestyle. This restaurant has a very unique atmosphere. There is an indoor space as well as outdoor space. It is cultural decorated in traditional Garifuna style, demonstrating our unique artifact, and with the instruments we use, when playing music. This restaurant is locally owned by a Belizean Garifuna family. We serve traditional food and local Belizean food. We specialize in food prepared using coconut milk. This gives our food an authentic flavor which is enjoyed by many. Fish is our main diet so fish is served in many forms, and is always available.

Hudut is a traditional fish stew with coconut milk and plantains. Three of us had different versions of this. It was delicious. Friendly and laid back. Let me keep a bike inside for a few hours. Cash only.
