“Puerto Barrios - Guatemala - Coral Restaurant - Basic but good food and location”

Coral Bay Restaurant
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 3, 2015

This place is next door to the boat jetty and juts out into the water to give some excellent views across the bay. However, when you approach it from the roadside, it doesn't look at all inviting. You walk down a long wide corridor from the entrance and it's a bit bleak, until you reach the large restaurant area which juts out into the water. Even then the central area is bare with only tables around the outside to give everyone the advantage of a water view. This probably reflects the number of visitors really as Puerto Barrios does not strike me as being a great tourist stopping off place. More of a passing through town. We took a table overlooking the water and it was really nice. A young lady came out of the kitchen area and served us and she was very pleasant. Now don't expect full waiting staff. This was more of the kitchen people running the service also and if you needed anything then you just gave them a call. As we had spent the morning sorting out our boat tickets and the immigration border crossing requirements ( we were taking a boat across to Punta Gorda in Belize ) it was virtually lunchtime so I went for the burger and fries. Great choice. The serving wasn't huge but the taste was great. We had some coffees and soft drinks and spent a nice hour enjoying the views and waiting for our ferry. The ladies who served us were quiet but friendly with it and nothing was too much trouble. The cost was really inexpensive, which we probably expected but we had a good time. Probably not a place I would visit in the evenings but great for what we needed. It's a shame really as the views across the water are superb.
