If you are staying in Punta Gorda, eating at Asha's is a must. I was there with my sister in February and we had a most unforgettable dinner in a relaxed atmosphere complimented by a friendly staff.

The tastiest seafood you will find anywhere in a place situated over the ocean on the main path in Punta Gorda. O, and excellent live music while you eat. Try the Cassava Cake.

Asha is a welcoming host that has an authentic Belizean restaurant right on the water. The food is of great quality and flavor. Ask for Asha's delight - a chef's choice plate that we really liked.

If you are ever in Punta Gorda, Asha's is certainly worth a visit. The combination of good food, beautiful views and friendly staff are a recipe for a memorable dining experience. The mantra is "home away from home" and the comfort and ease of the vibes at Asha's serves up that feeling. This was my restaurant of choice for lunch... More

Description
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. Our 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.

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.

Marine tours, sustainable-fishing classes, sunset-booze cruises, and cooking lessons are available.
