Tucked behind the main street this simple restaurant serves some really tasty local food. It is not fancy at all and a bit slow - as it seems everything is prepared fresh - but we really enjoyed the food.

I went to Erva's my first night in SAN Ignacio because of a review I read on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We sat on the patio facing a quiet street and were immediately greeted by our waiter who brought us our drinks. Two of us had the fish with fresh vegetables and one of us had a pork... More

This was undoubtedly our best meal during our vacation to Belize. We had shrimp curry, pizza, and coconut fish. Everything was delicious.The owner and his employees were wonderful and I'm glad we ate here.

We went early for dinner and were the first ones to arrive. Spoke with the chef and explained we are vegetarians and what we can eat. He made suggestions and explained what the dishes are and helped us decide. Food was great and very reasonably priced. Later, the restaurant got crowded and we were waited by a second person. When...

The service was fast and friendly but the food and drink were only ok. We ordered vegetarian fried rice and foundnit was a bit overpriced for the quality. The fresh juice was also a bit watered down but not bad.

It was our first meal in Belize and It was so good!! We had curry shrimp and stewed chicken, and the fried chaya as an appetizer. Everything was tasty and tasted very fresh!

We had dinner at Erva's after talking to a local. Food was delicious! I had the coconut shrimp, which had lots of nice vegetables in it and my other half had the shrimp coconut rice, which was also really nice. The outside of the buidling is not that attractive, but the food and service definitely makes up for it!

Was recommended this place by a local. We ended up having New Year Eve's Dinner here! Food was very very good! (Maybe marginally salty but it really depends on your threshold.) The bbq smoked pork chop was soooo good! like a really well smoked slab of smoky ham (this one was not too salty). Everything else we had - some... More

We were at Erva's twice and it was honestly the best food we had while staying in San Ignacio. While we tried a couple of the "busy" spots (busy with visitors), they paled in comparison. If you want great, fresh Belizan food for a very fair price, this is the place to go! We even took some of their homemade... More
