If we take the tender in from the cruise ship, we always have lunch here because service is not bad and the food is good. We ate in the upstairs restaurant verses the deck over the water since it was full and too loud from the speakers. Service was good and the food above average,

This place is located right on the pier as you tender in from the cruise ships. It is open-air, funky and crowded when the ships are in port. But the food is good and the drinks are well done. A DJ spins in the downstairs, over-the water area and the upstairs, across the street seating allows you to catch a... More

The view was amazing!! We enjoyed the food and drinks but they were somewhat understaffed for the crowd that day. We would definitely try again.

So glad you stopped in will visit us again. Out staff definitely works hard when we get busy. This staff has been with us many years, but it is difficult to find others who can and will work as hard. Hope you didn't have to wait to long. See you again. Laura More

Our fish tacos are one of our top sellers, along with the super sized whole fish. So glad you enjoyed yourself there, and found yourself a seat. Some days it can get a little crazy, but that also makes it a lot of fun. See you again. Laura More

We entered the Wet Lizard and placed our order. The wait was extremely long and when the waiter came out he had food for everyone except me. There were 7 of us. He then informs me that they were out of what I ordered. REALLY SIR!! He offered to get me something else however it was almost time to get... More

I am very disappointed myself to hear that if they ran out of your order they should have told you before all the other food was delivered. My apologies. I will be sure to address this issue. When you come back to Belize please see Ellie, my daughter who is managing it and she will be sure to see to... More

This was our last stop for the day while waiting for the tender to the ship. BTW fellow cruisers, Belize is shallow, so as far as I know, no cruise companies can dock there, everyone tenders. The islands were great, we went straight there to snorkel with the ship's excursions. This is one of the few places I would use... More

Happy to hear you had a good time snorkeling in Belize. It is truly a great spot for that. I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the ceviche. That is one of our best sellers, and people take it with them. We buy all our vegetables locally and sometimes the prices of tomatoes (other item in the ceviche) is... More

We ate here on a port stop and we're so glad we did. Sana was the best server we have ever had on any of our trips in the Caribbean. She was super friendly and extremely efficient! The food was amazing- try the coconut shrimp- and the drinks were hard to beat! A must go when in Belize City!

This place was fun, cute - love the "Husband daycare" signs!!! The drinks were good and priced right. Beware of the green stuff on the nachos - they are cucumbers and not jalapeños.

I guess you don't like cucumbers? LOL We make our salsa fresh daily with a variety of vegetables. That is something that makes our salsa different and requested a lot buy folks. True, a little different for some. Sorry you didn't like them but so glad you enjoyed yourself. Thanks for coming by and spending time with us. Look forward... More
