The service was outstanding during my recent visit. Our waiter Carlos recommended the blackened red snapper with shrimp, lemon and caper sauce and it was delicious! My son ordered the jerk chicken and enjoyed it very much. Thank you Carlos!

You won't be disappointed in the food quality and taste. Both starters and main courses were very tasty. Absolutely no complaints there. Service was completely "miss" however. It was like someone with short term memory loss giving service.

We ate dinner here two of the four nights we were in town. The service is wonderful but the food coming out might take a bit depending on the night. The best item is the beef carpaccio, it's outrageously delicious. I wouldn't suggest this place for a backpackers low budget. Prices range from $15BZ for a burger to $55BZ filet... More

They have WiFi, which always scores a restaurant points anywhere in Belize. Also, their food is great. I've been here a few times, ordering different things, and I'm always impressed with what I am served both in terms of presentation and actual taste. They have a lovely sangria. I've read the complaints about service, but I think it's something they're... More

Great environ in the city where there aren't many dining options. Have been here a couple of times and while they do seem to have an extensive menu, have basically stuck to the burgers and you must try the Guacamole/bacon one! All in all their food is good. My cons here: the service can get chaotic when it is crowded... More

Choice seating options outdoor/indoor and diverse menu selections make Riverside Tavern a good celebration place. Recommend the beef carpaccio, onion rings and mojitos.

Our evening at the Riverside Tavern was like being in a training video of how not to run a restaurant. First, we arrived to find no record of our reservation. Luckily, there was a table for 4 available, but the hint that this would be a disappointing experience came when the bus-boy proceeded to clean the table with copious sprays... More

Came to Riverside Tavern for dinner, we ordered the: Medallions with sautéed spinach and mushroom cream sauce + the surf and turf Alfredo. Both were amazing! Rich in flavor, the steaks were juicy and cooked perfectly. Prices were on the higher side depending... More
