Had breakfast here after passing the friendly hostess on the street numerous times. The fresh squeezed juice was great and had omelets, which were very good. However, they could use more cheese in our opinion. Wait staff was attentive and they also have Free WiFi for the customers. They also serve lunch and dinner. The selections looked good, but haven't... More

I regret nothing more than choosing to go to this restaurant. The staff had no idea what they were doing and took our orders wrong. I also noticed another couple get up and complain to the apparently non-English speaking hostess/waitress and chef several times. The menu was also an exact copy of another sub par tourist restaurant down the road... More

We went to La Bodeguita to order out. Asked for a medium pizza and 2 lobster shishkebabs . The waitress/hostess (?) took our order and said it will be about 20 min wait. The scene was as follows; a group of 11 with drinks, couple of guys with drinks, two couples with drinks, a single guy having dinner, and another... More

When the fry jack lady (on middle street) was closed, we went here instead - bypassing Amor y Cafe because it was busy. This place was a ghost town. We should have followed ours - and all those other people's instincts! The food - not great. And the prices. AWFUL. We were so used to getting huge stuffed fry jacks... More

We stopped at this restaurant the first night we were on the Caye because it was close to our accommodation. We quenched our thirst, and ate supper, but it was very disappointing. The grilled lobster skewers were barely cooked, and had a funny taste. No ill-effects, but not a place to recommend.

Loved this restaurant! Food was well prepared, they had a very good variety of dishes. The potato salad was over the top. Service was very congenial and we even got a free golf cart ride back to our house from the Spanish only speaking chef. This place was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Hot, thirsty, walking down the street, I heard " mojitos...." and saw Yadi with her big smile. Who could resist? B. del Medio became our home away from home away from home! Breakfast fruit smoothies before diving, afternoon mojios post diving, and fresh grilled fish prepared by her husband at night!. They even arranged a private party for us with... More

Four of us enjoyed a quiet meal at a more than reasonable price. The two girls split a huge crab dinner, my brother had the Snapper, and I had the chicken tacos-all for $65 US. The service was was quick and the fish was cooked on the grill near our table. If you are looking for an out of the... More
