A must for breakfast. Closed Tuesday but well worth it any other day. You can go inexpensive or full out the fry jacks with honey or jam are great. The food is fresh the help is friendly and the view is wonderful. You can sit right on the beach or up on the deck. Highly recommended

Estels is right on the beach in San Pedro. We had the chicken and rice which was fairly priced and delicious. Would recommend Estel's

This place was delightful! The view is spectacular, it's a family owned restaurant with delicious food. The corned beef hash brought us back for another breakfast, the beignets were scrumptious. The bloody Mary's were spicy and the fresh juices and fruits were perfect too yay!

Breakfast here can't be beat. If you're looking for a mid-priced meal that comes with a view, look no further! Traditional Belizian breakfasts (i.e. fry jacks!) were phenomenal here. You also can't beat the view since it's right on the beach and surrounded by palm trees!

This is a great place to go for breakfast or lunch. They serve all items on the huge chalkboard menu all day long. Local food fare, and delicious! right on the waters edge, so the view is great. Sand on the floors, open air style eating on the patio deck. A very comfortable place to eat, plan your next trip... More

Yummy breakfast stop! The food is delicious and there are many many options to try. The menu is on a chalk board as you walk in and is a little overwhelming the first time you see it mostly because there are so may good tasting options! note-they are closed on tuesdays.

Just visited Estel's for breakfast. They were closed for remodeling last year so was really excited to get to eat here again. The prices used to be reasonable but I guess they are recouping their cost since the food prices were really high. You will pay 19 Belize or almost $10 US for basic breakfast burrito which was dripping in... More

No credit cards! Sand floor! One of the best Lobster omelet, fried jacks and Belkin meals on Ambergris Caye.

They just started serving a brunch here while we were visiting. The food was good but the portions are lacking a bit. We had Eggs Benedict and they could have inexpensively added some potatoes but didn't and didn't even allow us to purchase potatoes?? No sides available to purchase for brunch we were told. It could be great but fell... More
