First place we ate on our trip to Belize. As mentioned in other reviews, the windows are very tinted so we were not sure it was open.

The security guard stationed at the door did greet us and invite us in when we stopped. Throughout our stay in Belize City it appears to be the norm to have a security guard at the front of every shop. If it creates jobs and promotes safety, no complaints here. Everyone was very friendly also.

Belikin, the official and only beer legally allowed to be brewed in Belize is very good and available just about everywhere. We ordered fish with coleslaw and chicken stew with rice and beans. All very tender and tasty. Service was attentive and friendly. Our tour guide later that week recommended Tropicolada and mentioned they have a karaoke night.

While walking through Tourism Village stop in for a nice meal and drinks.

A simple local food restaurant and bar only a block away from the fray of the cruise port. They even had free wifi. Handy for us that were in for the day from a cruise ship. The food was tasty, I inhaled my jerk chicken! It had a little heat but didn't blow my head off. It was quiet and cool inside, nothing fancy, and reasonably priced.
Don't be afraid to try the local cuisine.

After two other failed restaurant attempts, we stumbled upon Tropicolada and were so grateful they were open. Had a great drink menu, good bar food and the service was quick! Only place in the city open pass 6 on a Friday and they saved our evening and bellies!

There is absolutely nothing special about this restaurant and particularly the advertised authentic Rice and Beans. The stew is OK, DO NOT EAT uncooked items (salad and others) .... Hygiene is a major problem on those areas.

Tropicolada had good tasting food for a cheap price! Definitely has a local feeling to the place.. The Windows are very tinted so it looks closed all the time, but they have a person who sits at the door whose sole purpose is to open it for you.. like an automatic door! I loved the strewed chicken.. And, their smoothies are good!
