We stayed at the hotel here so eating was convenient. The restaurant is right on the sand and water. It is very close to the piers and daytime activities like snorkelling and diving. The wait staff was helpful and charming.

The menu is simple with mostly Caribbean dishes. Foods are well prepared but be ready for spicy flavors. Everything comes with rice and beans.

There is live music most evenings. On Wednesday and Saturday there are are all- you- can - eat jerk dishes.

This was advertised as a dinner buffet on Wednesday and Saturdays. Went there with some friends, but no band. Told band member wouldn't be there, but didn't see other. They should have received a discount since there was no band! We were planning on dancing the nice away! Our group was 4 and only 8 people were there.
Food was good especially the fried plantain and rice and beans.

We stopped here for dinner, and if everyone else on the island had been hiding the really spicy jerk chicken, we found it here. This was very Jamaican, which made me wonder if the Belizean Jamaican food we'd had elsewhere was deliberately less spicy, like a regional slant on the cuisine. This was the place to get your hot fix. We got the jerk chicken and the jerk pork, both of which were very good. Luckily the veggies and plantains and rice helped balance the spice, so it made for a nice plate.
The place is located kind of wedged into the side of a resort, but there are signs everywhere for it, so people can find it pretty easily. They offer a buffet Wednesday and Saturday nights if that interests you as well.

I've eat at Jambel's many times over the years while visiting Ambergris Caye. Their location has moved several times and they are now located at the Sunbreeze Suites. I was told that this will be the last move.

I enjoyed coconut curry chicken with rice and coleslaw. As always, their flavors are authentic, portions generous and prices very reasonable.

I always make it a point to dine there whenever I'm on the island.

We came here on a Saturday night for their buffet. It wasnt very busy due to low season so they weren't doing their buffet but they were nice enough to accommodate us and serve us family style everything they would have offered for their buffet and give us seconds of the dishes as well!
We loved the conch fritters, the jerk Shrimp and plantains. The jerk pork and chicken were very good as well but spicy so be prepared!
Great drinks and great atmosphere right on the beach!
