We love this place for a cruise stop on any ship. It is a part atmosphere, and you tend to meet folks from your ship while you are there. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon out of the sun, drinking yummy cocktails and...More

Nothing out of the ordinary. The staff seemed distracted, missing some of our food order. We had to ask for our bill and it was messed up. Just a mediocre experience overall. Probably would skip if there again.More

I really can't say, it's been several months since I have been there. They do have a good menu, very fun place. Give yourself time to enjoy it.

Convenient location on the pier of the Belize cruise ship port. Downstairs offers great cocktails and light snacks, the upstairs is a full restaurant offering the best of Belizean cuisine. Conch, shrimp, fresh fish. Everything is made fresh daily. A great place to spend the day, to relax, or get up dance and party with us.
