We ordered tabouli and were served salsa. There was too much tomato, was not impressed, could have just told us there was no parsley available. Cilantro is NOT a substitute for parsley. Also not much choice other than fried foods, more like a bar establishment.

At night, they have great music, friendly staff (owner), very good Arabic food, shisha, and an especially good place to meet people. I recommend this place to everyone, no matter where you come from or which language you speak.

I have no idea what made the owner decide on Caye Caulker as his final destination...but I am very glad he did. I would never have guessed I'd be able to find a big, tasty dish of hummus, replete with delicious pita, available on the...More
