We went along and took a seat in the garden one night. Although we were acknowledged, no one came to talk to us or take a drink order for almost 20 minutes. They did seem busy so we were patient but just as we decided to leave as it didn't seem like we were ever going to be served, a... More

Food was some of the best, but we showed up for the buffet he was advertising and it never happened.. He is very unprofessional and seems to not really care. The food was a five but Willy was a one... however drinks and food were pretty cheap so that was pleasant. We felt uncomfortable there because of the service. There... More

I'd have to say that the reason to eat at Wish Willy is for the experience, not the food. And the experience isn't all that great; alcohol probably helps. Without alcohol and without food, it was all sort of tiresome, without much of a payoff. The younger crowd got a kick out of being able to grab their beers out... More

We were told about this place by our travel agent so we went there for dinner one night. The owner, Maurice, was trained at the Chicago Culinary Institute - although you would not know it from looking at him. It is a restaurant like no other. People sit at long picnic tables watching all the servers scurrying around and enjoy... More

We were here on our last beautiful evening. The restaurant is really one of a kind and has it's own vibe. The fish plate was tasty although a bit sparse. The vegetarian alternative consists just out of a slightly larger serving the side dishes that other meals also got. For the same price as any other dish (20BZD) it wasn't... More

Food was fine - decent but not outstanding. Staff keep to themselves so you don't get any insight into island life etc . Good music - easy listening and inviting.

It is a unique Caye Caulker place that helps make Caye Caulker the best experience you could ever hope to have. If you like sun, fun, food, and suds you will be where you need to be. It was a great evening with a great meal and the best of service. More than a meal. It was an experience. Willy... More

Terrible service, they have some reggae music for the nice mood but they really don't act accordingly. The food is no more than average when comparing to the rest of the island. There are several better options to eat in caye caulker
