We were lucky to dine here again on it's last night, which was Sunday, June 1, 2014. The new owners are not interested in a restaurant - what a shame to see this place go away

We loved the pizza and the salads. The drinks were great and the prices were reasonable. We liked it so much that we ate there twice in our four day stay.

Service was slow, food was greasy. Restaurant is attractive and clean. Location is on the main road, next to a great little ice cream polar.

This place has good food but is a little over priced. You can get food that is just as good in several other places for cheaper and there will be a breeze. It's a little hot and stuffy in there.

We stopped here for lunch and each had a huge delicious salad! Very pretty atmosphere (love the purple) and open air. It is hot in Belize in May, but they had the fans going and it was comfortable enough. The salads were fresh and delicious....More
