We recently visited Aji Tapa Bar and Restaurant and cannot say enough good things about it. The location is amazing, a beach restaurant right on the ocean with a view to die for, although not a great sunset view as it faces east. The night we were there it was packed and they were back up at least two hours,... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. I am happy you had a nice time and apologize for the waiting. We make almost everything from scratch and it takes time with our smaller kitchen. We hope you will return to our beautiful island and restaurant. Mike More

Had 9 of my family members here for relaxing dinner. Need to make reservations. Service was wonderful, good drinks, and great food. Plan for a leisurely dinner--not for anyone is a rush. Beautiful atmosphere and friendly people. Would highly recommend.

The is a beautiful beach setting. We had good fis dishes, but a bit pricey compared to the rest of the island. Service is excellent. Many choices.

We happened upon Aji on a beach walk one day and fell in love with the atmosphere and made reservations for our last night in San Pedro and to celebrate our anniversary . From the main road it is such a beautiful walk to the beachfront dining . Stunning actually ! So beautifully decorated tables, plants, white lights, stoneware, everything... More

This was our best meal while on the island. My husband had the red grilled snapper which was excellent and my children had meatballs and pasta. All was very good and seasoned well. I would highly recommend.

We recently spent a couple weeks on Ambergris Caye and drove by Aji's on our way back from Secret Beach. We stopped in as they were setting tables, and were at once taken by the ambience. Although we were early for dinner, and they only accepted cash (due to new management), we looked at the menu and made a point... More

We were in Belize celebrating our wedding held at Coco Beach Resort. We slipped away from our 40 guests for an intimate dinner for two. Our experience was amazing! Compliments to the chef!! The servers were very attentive and friendly.

I can't count how many times we send yummy and wow. The oceanfront setting amongst the mangroves was beautiful. The service was great and the food was amazingly good. We also enjoyed the sangria with watermelon slices. We had the clams and artichoke appetizer and then shared the stuffed grouper. This will be a place we return to and recommend... More

The staff and ambiance are great. The food, while at times great (the carrot soup hits very high notes), is inconsistent. The atmosphere makes up for any shortcomings and I do highly recommend this experience as one of the very best north of San Pedro.

We had planned on hitting a different restaurant for every meal so we could get the widest sample possible. That went out the window after the first dinner! Aji's is great -- super menu, every dish fantastic, impeccable service. We had to force ourselves to only eat there twice!
