THE place to have seafood in Punta Gorda. Nowhere else in Punta Gorda has the seafood options that are on Asha's menu. I love how you get to choose from a large variety of side dishes. That little touch ensures a personalized plate to please the palate like none other. The deserts are made from scratch decadence.

Good local Belizean cuisine with a chalk board menu that you choose your main and two sides from. The restaurant sits above the ocean and has an open air appeal with outside tables as well. The sound of the water under your feet is unusual and appealing. Our meals were tasty and we especially enjoyed our Lion fish starter. My... More

We had dinner here with our tour group, Discovery Corps. Restaurant knew we were coming ahead of time but the service time from order to service was over 2 hours! The food was fresh and delicious but Asha definitely need to work on customer service if they want to appeal to foreign visitors. Complimentary snacks and/or drinks brought to the... More

Show up a little early to ensure you get a deck above the ocean seat. We watched the moon rise over the Caribbean Sea as we sipped rum drinks and ate delicious curry dishes and stakes. It's more than other restaurants from a cost perspective but the quality of the dishes makes it very well worth it. Ate here twice... More

Fresh seafood with delicious side dishes and drinks at an extremely affordable price. Absolutely loved the atmosphere and friendly and hospitable staff. Asha came out to greet all of us and that made it extra special. Our first night we had a special buffet made for our group and the variety of main dishes were great! The second time I... More
