Description: Mangos Belize is a locally owned bar and restaurant located in Maya Beach, Belize (20 minutes north of Placencia Village). It has been a local favorite for seventeen years and is known for being a great place to relax, meet new friends, tourists and locals alike. Our restaurant has a unique structure with great second story views of the Caribbean…ambience second to none! There are plenty of places to socialize, have some privacy, as well as rooms for private parties. We offer an assortment of culinary options ranging from American favorites to local Belizian fare. The key to Mangos is not just the fun atmosphere and ambience, but also its fantastic food. In addition, we’re pleased to announce that we now offer take-out, along with daily Happy Hour 2-5 pm. Under new management, we purposely kept our talented chefs and wait staff. Serving lunch and dinner from 12 pm – 10 pm daily! Come see what all the buzz is about!

We dined here last year, a vibrant beach eatery. Since then, numerous improvements and touches have been added. Cushions on seating, many tables w views, nice rustic decor. The menu has specials from pizza, lasagna, Hamburg, Greek salad, peel n eat shrimp! The drink du jour was a Salty Dog and I just had to restrain myself from gulping. The tomato basil is the fresh kind. The pasta is tossed w oil n you add cheese. It has baby tomatoes, basil. Fresh good flavors and light. The Greek salad was well prepared and packed w fresh things, peppers, feta, onion, good season. Service was fine. Our cc didn't work after a couple tris w different cards so we paid about 165 BZE for linguini, five cocktails, shrimp and Greek salad. Take cash in case this happens to you. The salty dogs were advertised as 8 bze but we were charged 10 bze, inexplicably. Specials aren't on menu but on board to the right once you climb stairs.

We stumbled by Mangos on our golf-cart day and decided to stop in for drinks, appetizers, and a swim break for our 10-yr old. It was the perfect spot, right on the beach and ocean. My son was able to swim, snorkeled a little, race in the sand, and we tried to catch the lil sand crabs as they were digging their holes. We enjoyed the frozen drink specials, chicken wings, and fresh shrimp. The drinks were delicious and filling. The wings were fresh, not breaded, and good. The shrimp was large and you had to take off the legs, etc., but worth the work to eat them. The restaurant was clean, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the location cannot be beat! We were there around 3pm and the breeze was nice. We would definitely go there again and try their dinner(s).

Food was more American table fare, lasagna, burgers, pizza and tacos, which actually looked more like a burrito. It was all good food quality and large portions. There was quite a crowd, filled with locals and tourist which was good considering it was "off season" at the time.

Our food was good and the service was good we just felt like we paid a bit much for what we got. The atmosphere was very nice and we loved the sea breezes as we enjoyed dinner.

The dinner was plentiful and very good. The view was lovely and made it worth a stop in. The menu options were fairly standard but enjoyable.
