“First vacation to Belize”

Black Orchid Restaurant

Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 March 2016 via mobile

Our first trip to Belize starting in a small town, Burrell Boom. We dined one night at the Black Orchid, a very quaint resort right along the river. The service and food was excellent. We had the opportunity to meet and chat with the Operations Manager of the Black Orchid, Ms. Beverly. She shared information about Burrell Boom and is quite knowledgeable about the other areas of Belize we were planning to visit. One regret is that we did not stay at the Black Orchid. It appears to be the premier property/resort in the area offering excursions and tours in a very quaint setting. On our next trip to Belize, two or three nights at the Black Orchid is very high on the list. Many thanks to Ms. Beverly for being a very gracious host.

We stopped here for lunch during an excursion to Altun Ha and a boat ride down the river Wallace. The lunch was a scoop of beans and rice, a thigh and leg of chicken, one strip of fried plantain. Or you could order a hamburger. The food was ok, but not too exciting. We do love beans and rice!

After cruising up the Old Belize River, River Wallace, we stopped at the Black Orchid Resort for lunch. We had a choice of beans & rice, chicken, hamburgers and other odds and ends. The food was OK. I don’t believe this place will ever get on the “Destinations You Can’t Miss” list, but the people were friendly, the food was hot, and the local Belikin Beer was cold. We stopped here as part of a Carnival tour group. The flowers are beautiful, and you may even get a chance to see the Howler Monkeys in the trees.

quite a good menu and friendly staff, great food. Ask for the friend jacks or Johnny cakes for breakfast, with honey.

I dont know that I would make a special trip, but if you are staying at the Black Orchid, the food is good.
