I had a very nice meal here - chicken breast stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes etc - and served with a rich mushroom sauce. A Duchesse (?) potato slice and fresh vegetables accompanied the meal that I washed down with a glass or two of pinot grigio

We came here for dinner with no expectations, but the night ended up being fantastic.
Expect to spend money here as it's not super cheap, but in the Europe or the US, you'd pay much more for a great evening.

FIRST: You sit outside in the garden so be sure to spray for mosquitoes. The night we went, the wind was a bit calm, so spraying was a necessity. There are fans there - which makes for a nice little breeze - but recommend spraying anyway.

We ordered a few pizzas (margarita and pepperoni) which were fantastic. They are a bit bigger than a personal size, so it's possible to share with another person if you (a) are not super hungry or (b) are having something else. We didn't see a wine on their list that we wanted, so we asked if we could bring one of ours for a corking fee. The corking fee was a reasonable $20 Belize (USD $10). We finished our meal with a lovely flourless brownie and ice cream.

The music that evening was an amazing American (I don't remember his full name - ...Michael....). He could cover anyone and did an incredible job doing so... Really, really, really enjoyed his music. I'm not sure if he plays every night, but would be worth inquiring and trying to go when he does.

The service is also very good with the waiters very attentive and helpful. Il Pellicano is a great place to spend an evening where it's not loud, you can get great food and there is fantastic entertainment. Highly recommend it here..

Great service, ambiance and good food make this restaurant well worth visiting when you are on the Island. The waiters were efficient and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble even though we were a table of 7. The live music playing was a bonus too!

Our most favorite restaurant on the island. The staff is wonderful and the food is fantastic. We tried the antipasto for an appetizer, the lasagna, a pizza, the chicken Marsala, pappardelle bolognese, and the chocolate molten lava cake. All were excellent! And of course a bottle of Pinot Grigio. We are happy and very FULL
