Had a beer and a few cocktails on our way back to the ship. Looked like a fun place. Wish we could've stayed longer and tried the good.

Before heading back to the cruise ship, my wife and I stopped in for an afternoon appetizer and drinks. We didn't care for the taste of the chips and the salsa was nothing to write home about. The restaurant is a relaxing place to sit and watch the world go by.

Hi Thomas: Thanks for your comments. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your appetizer. Actually the chips are made fresh everyday from homemade corn tortillas and on a daily basis we are selling our salsa for guests to take home with them. It is a little different than typical red salsa, but it is fresh, and very typical Belizean... More

I ordered the fish Tacos and I swear the fish was caught right before my tacos were made. Fresh fish, nice venue, Caribbean sea, sun and music...what's not to like about that?

Service was slow. Beer was cold but not Icy cold. We had Plantains with coleslaw. If it wasn't for the coleslaw they would have been inedible. Im sure you can make a better choice.

Hi Jeff: Thanks for your comments. Plantains are definitely something that requires additions like coleslaw, hot sauce, or something to add to the flavor. It is a typical Belizean dish, but plantain are not for everyone. Come on back and try something different. Thank Laura More

Fresh salsa (mainly with cucumber). Coconut shrimp is awesome. Drink is a-plenty. Ask for the drink special. (Extra toasty). Enjoy!!
