Our first night to the island and it was Willy’s Birthday. There was music, a buffet, a large crowd of both locals and tourists. The food fantastic and we got to meet some of Willy’s family plus ask several locals about things we should do...More

I visited Caye Caulker in October 2016 and I'm here right now. I was told both times that Willy often closes down during slow season which I totally get. Everyone needs a break. But if you aren't open, is it too much to ask for...More

If you're chill enough to eat a backyard fish BBQ on picnic tables behind a Belizean house listening to Reggae, come hang out here. They almost always get someone's order wrong but we all love and embrace the atmosphere- string lights, palms, wooden stilt houses,...More

If you are looking for a great meal, stop by Wish Willy's. Hopefully Star will be at the grill cooking up her freshmade meals and secret sexy sauce. We had lobster, pork and chicken and were not disappointed with the entrees or the side dishes....More

Super relaxed restaurant. The tables looked like they were placed in the garden of the owners, which created a very cosy and warm atmosphere. With slow reggae music it's very different from most places on Caye Caulker, playing loud music all day, full of drinking...More

You must go here if you want a true CC experience! First, the food was great-a lobster meal with coconut rice and delicious grilled veggies for under $20 US. But the atmosphere makes this unique. It is a backyard style bbq so you feel like...More

Probably one of my favourite restaurants in Caye Caulker. A must go to if you are on the island. Had the lobster curry which was incredible. Overall vibes was just amazing. Thanks for the memories!

Set down a side street, Wish Willy's looks like a back yard and is a world away from formal dining, but don't be put off. It is simply great! Eating is done outside and rather than order individually, our group of 9 were brought loads...More
