I have been here several times and had several items off the menu. To this day I am not disappointed in the food. They have a great selection of burgers 6,10 and 12oz. Everyone is very polite. Great staff of waiters. The Bartenders Marlin and Rosa are the sweetest girls and they will take care of you. I would defiantly... More

The food was supper. The stone crab is worth going well out of your way for. The waiter Alex was very friendly and helpful and the price was reasonable. The view of the garbage across the river could be cleaned up.

The service & food were great, we called for a seating of 14 and the team was quick to set up and accommodate our meeting & dinner. The staff are professional & courteous. The food was fresh & tasty. Each time I am in Belize City we visit the Riverside Tavern at least once sometimes more. It's a great place... More

We had read about the burgers, but figured that being so close to the sea, we needed to try the seafood. We have been eating great meals throughout Central America for the past three weeks and all six of agreed that this was our best meal of the trip. Our server Leroy, who did a wonderful job, recommended the stuffed... More

Burghers are of 3 different sizes: 6, 10 and 12 oz if I remember correct. Tavern burgher is not something special. Fries are not the best. No fish at all, no lobster. Salad with chicken, apples, goat cheese and caramelized walnuts (25 BZD) is ok. The tavern has an outside sitting area but surrounded by a net with... like in... More

Often i go to Riverside for a good ambiance and great food, either lunch or dinner. I love their burgers "real burger", and we can choose fresh fries or healthier some veggies. I love their fish tacos as well, and bruschetta fish sandwich is excellent. Not to mention excellent Filet Mignon. In Belize the chef is one of few who... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Belize City. The food is very good, and it's on the channel, so the view is nice. Service is usually very good, and there are a variety of menu options to choose from. If you are shopping or visiting sights in BC, have time before your flight, or get there early for the water...

The food was relatively simple, but great. It's always good to have a nice view and comfortable atmosphere. We enjoyed our meal while watching iguanas next to the Belize River. We will go back the next time we visit Belize City.
