While on vacation for two weeks in Ambergis Caye we came to El Fogon numerous times. Our favorite dish was the chicken salbutes! Another diner and local turned us on to this dish and we couldn't get enough! Our friends caught several fish on their trip and we brought them to El Fogon to cook. It was absolutely terrific! Super authentic dishes, and the staff gave top notch service.

They have authentic Belizean cuisine that represents the Island and it's various cultures. They have a lunch menu and daily specials. We had the mixed ceviche with lobster, fish, and shrimp. It was more than enough for the two of us. We should have had the daily special, but the guy behind us ordered it and it looked like way too much food for us. They also serve everything with two different types of hot sauce. Both are made with habanero sauce. Taste them first with the tip of your fork. One will blow your head off. They do take credit cards.

Close to the airport and very reasonable prices. This was the best meal I are on the island. Not a great view but the food is well worth the visit.

We really enjoyed our meal here! I had the beef stew and my husband had the lobster creole. We felt like we really got a taste of true Belizean food!

We were looking for authentic Belizian food after a day of fun in the sun...and we found it at El Fogon!

From the moment we walked up to the entrance, to the time we left - the entire staff was attentive, friendly, and thoughtful. The hostess even placed a fan directly in front of us, having just come in from the sunny day, walking and my toasted forehead, she cooled us quickly so we could enjoy the fabulous food. We had the surf and turf special, which was served up in twin kabob style servings - sirloin steak cooked to perfection with assorted veggies and the seafood kabob consisting of snapper, lobster and shrimp - though we opted to skip the shrimp and were rewarded with double lobster! So worth the return!
