I don't know what all the fuss with this place is about. I had a juice that was a cold tea and the brownie and coffee was just ok, the price is much more than a "cheap eat" as advertised on TripAdvisor and they added more than 10% to the bill, when I've mentioned she just changed without saying sorry, which suggests she might have done on purpose... on top of that they put a box with tips in front of you. Lunch might be good but I wouldn't go back.

We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience with us and apologise that there was a miscalculation on your initial bill. I can assure you that it was not done deliberately - all our employees are honest and trustworthy but sadly Maths is not taught as strongly here as it is in other parts of the world. When they make a mistake it often provokes an embarrassed silence in them - so we are sorry you didn't get an apology on the spot.
All of the 10% service charge that is charged is shared equally between the 3 local Mayan ladies we employ, who are all single mothers raising children. Often times customers are so happy with the service they provide they want to leave more than the 10% which is why the tip jar is there.
We have plenty of cheap-eats options available on our menu - snacks starting at Q16, and main dishes from as low as Q32. If you had tried some of our main dishes perhaps you would have seen what all the fuss was about.

Been traveling through Belize, Mexico and Guatemala for over two years and can tell you this was one of the few menus I've seen with extensive goat cheese accompanied food items! Missed it so much.

The lounge is very relaxed with hammocks
Delicious hot cocoa
Very large menu with plenty of healthy options
Clean!

We always seek vegan restaurants when away and the food at fifth dimension is insane. We had the pizza flatbread and the stir fry which were both super super tasty.
While your food is being prepped you can relax in hammocks and the views are also good.

If you visit San Pedro make this restaurant part of your trip for lunch

Fresh and tasty! A lot of ingredients in every meal that make every bite rich and delicious.
By the way, sit at the third floor! The view is amazing
