This is not a traditional Belizean restaurant. It has an interesting vibe though, and offers delicious meals. My favorite was the Jalapeno Burger and the Belizean hot sauce is a must to try.

This is one of the few places that serves draft beer so we had a pitcher. It is closed on Sunday. The hamburger was very good and the cerviche was much larger than anticipated.

Really enjoyed this place. Food was well above my expectations, draft beer and good value. Alex our server was very welcoming and helpful. Would go back. And far enough away from docks that it was not a cruise ship place, thank goodness
