A quick tip for those on a budget: the restaurant offers its lunch menu during dinner time (6-9pm) with items like fish and chips, quesadillas, burgers and sandwiches. Prices are around half that of the regular dinner menu.More

Average $100-120 BZ ($50-60 USD) per person with drinks at a top restaurant. You can eat for much less and have an exquisite meal at many of the local establishments.
