“Great atmosphere, mediocre food”

The Magic Grill Restaurant & Bar

Come here for the atmosphere and the bar but don’t expect much food-wise. Way overpriced for the quality. They do take cards though and the views are unbeatable.

We ate many of our meals at Magic Grill during our week long stay on Caye Caulker...breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner! The food was good and the wait was a bit shorter than most island eateries! We were guests at a neighboring condo, but were treated and waited on as if we were Island Magic guests! The grill boasts a nice beach, tables on the beach, and a wonderful pier in addition to the eatery facilities and hotel poolside. The staff at Magic Grill are friendly and attentive. Passers-by are tempted to enjoy the hotel’s beach facilities are treated kindly thus generating business for the bar/restaurant. One never hears “These swings and tables are for hotel guests only!” We continued returning to Magic Grill not merely due to convenience, but because the food tasted good....BUT ALSO because of the staff...one in particular...ROSITA! She has such a warm smile, sweet personality, and acute attentiveness to her customers! She is a keeper, Magic Grill!

This restaurant is at the Island Magic Beach Resort. This was the recommended lunch stop from a Coral Breeze Tours cruise passenger excursion. Lovely location, with the sea breeze and multiple relaxing wooden porch swings We pre-ordered our lunch so there wouldn't be a long wait after snorkeling. There was still a bit of a wait which is the only reason for four stars. Things on Caye Caulker move at a slow pace. Someone cancelled their order, apparently after waiting longer than they expected... They left, and the order still came out a moment later and looked delicious (salsa, chips and guacamole). We had lobster ceviche (in season) and traditional bean and rice stew and devoured it all. Another family all enjoyed their meal, except for the kid who didn't recommend his hamburger. Service was slow but the servers had smiles and got the orders right. For lobster ceviche plus two side items, the price was US $21.

The menu here is very basic aka American. You can find things like quesadillas and nachos. However, everything is delicious and the staff are really pleasant. One area that they do excel is their drinks. They make a great margarita. The view from the bar is great (swinging chairs!) and if you’re a guest, they will serve you at the pool.

We were exhausted from 21 hours of travel time and just wanted to eat something...anything within a close walk from our cabana. We were not going to be picky about anything but I must admit that Magic Grill hit the mark. The food was very good, the swinging chairs was a fun touch but waitress staff was exceptional and easy to smile and laugh with us. They were so nice that we came back with some friends and ate there again.
