“Beautiful restaurant”

Reviewed 25 April 2017

The restaurant has outside dining, but after sunset the better choice is inside. Menu is quite varied, and food is prepared in the Belizian style. Service is excellent, and the place is very clean and beautiful. Not overpriced! At first, when you see the prices, they seem a tad high, but they are quoted in Belize dollars, which are half of the US dollar. What looks like an investment at $50 is actually a bargain at $25.

There were only two other groups there. One couple and one group that had 4 kids that were really well behaved. My husband asked the owner the next morning if it was always this quiet.nShe said on the weekends it was usually booked with locals. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of fresh fruit.We left on our adventure to Hopkins and stopped by the Zoo just up the road a half an hour.

We stayed only 1 night before our actual adventure trip in Belize started. This place was super clean & super friendly! Unbelievably peaceful. They have a lovely restaurant open for B, L & D. A cool screened-in bar by the pool and everything is situated right on the Belize riverbank. The all-included breakfast was terrific!! Our driver, Walter was excellent. Every staff member introduced themselves and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Also included in our room rate was free shuttle to & from the airport. So easy. Walter was waiting with a smile when we walked out the door from the airport.
I highly recommend taking the sunset river cruise! Gorgeous! Our guide, Edmond, was THE BEST! He could spot the wildlife long before we were upon it. He was so knowledgeable. He has lived on the river all his life and you could tell he loved where he lived and what he did. He was a charming, gentle, young man.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
And take the river cruise!!

This place deals adequately with hunger and the food is well prepared so you don't need to worry about getting sick. The shape of the room and wall colors are quite striking, and you can choose a table that is on the screened porch which wraps around the dining room. But there is nothing even remotely "excellent" on the menu. My wife ordered fish with cole slaw on the side. It was served with potato salad on the side. She pointed this out to the waiter and her replied that "on Sunday you get potato salad". Maybe cheeky can be funny, but to these tired travelers who had never met him before, it just seemed sort of hostile. The next morning our tour group was scheduled for breakfast. We went in and started on the buffet (nice enough) and half way through the waitress showed up with breakfast plates for each person. Fried eggs, toast, a little fruit. It all worked, but they seemed pretty disorganized. If you want reassuring predictability, this place is fine, but in the two meals that we were there nothing appeared that looked like fine (or even particularly good) dining.

Quick stop for lunch. Nice surroundings. Quesadillas were yummy. Would suggest for anyone in the area.
