Overlooking the sea, in quiet location on South side of town. Extensive and varied menu with plenty of local food choices as well as 'international' meals. Good value. Gets busy at weekends, get there early to ensure an outside table!

My friends and I spent 3 nights in PG and ate dinner at Asha's all 3 nights! The seafood is amazing and fresh. You pick your seafood of choice and then 2 sides to go with it, ranging from fries to salad or rice and beans. I HIGHLY recommend the Lion Fish in Garlic Sauce. Pair it with a Belikin... More

We stayed in PG for 4 nights and ate dinner at Asha's every night. Too many wonderful choices of fresh seafood on the menu to go elsewhere. Fish can be cooked one of 3 different ways (try the curried snapper). Each dinner comes with your choice of 2 sides, and there were plenty to choose from. Be sure to try... More

Excellent food and beautiful location. Walking distance from center of town. Lobster dinner was good value for money. Very cozy place to hang out on a balcony that hangs over the sea. Ian and Astrid

Much further down the oceanside road than we thought, had to ask several people where it was. The road is a bit rough, go slowly. Currently doing some expansion building a big dock, but this did not interfere with our meal. I had Snook with coconut veg rice and plantain, it was outstanding! At lunch it was only BZ$15. Fresh...

We enjoyed Asha's so much we went back for dinner again the next day. I had the snapper and the shrimp all good...the chocolate cake was home made and lucious.

Asha has owned this restaurant for some years, and it is on the waterfront at the end of Front Street. Beautiful fresh seafood and excellent beef. Dont miss it. Asha is a great host.

Great spot in PG. Food and vibes are what makes it the best. Right on the bay. Try the lion fish fingers.

You can't go to PG and NOT eat here - seriously fresh and tasty fish choices, excellent flavors and superior service. Choose from their full wall menu, order at counter and sit and enjoy the view and company. Brought a large group (called ahead to tell them we were coming) and they were quick and efficient and food on every... More

***Top quality seafood and barbeque in Punta Gorda***Relax at the only restaurant and bar around that is completely over the sea. Fresh meals are cooked to order with sustainably caught seafood; fish are often caught by Asha (the owner/head chef) himself. Open kitchen serves hearty dishes prepared with healthy ingredients.Listen to various styles of live music – including Creole and Garifuna drumming, Mayan marimba, and international performances – all while enjoying the Caribbean sea breeze with a view of the Guatemala highlands from across the bay.Exceptional service and competitive prices. Business practices are very environmentally friendly. Marine tours, sustainable-fishing classes, sunset-booze cruises, and cooking lessons are available. Great meeting spot to get to know the locals, meet other tourists, or get detailed information on Toledo. We cater to all needs; including large groups, food delivery, and a variety of events. Please call ahead for large groups, to-go orders, directions, or our music schedule.
