We were with a large group of about 20 so the choice of meals was pre-picked every night, however I enjoyed each one. The Lasagna was the best I have ever had.

Hopkins is fortunate to have someone like Chef Rob who obviously loves uses fresh,local ingredients to introduce and create amazing meals for his diners-and we appreciate it. Moses and him do all the cooking. King is an entertaining bartender who makes a nice cocktail. It's clear there is a great team here that enjoys food and people. I could probably... More

We really enjoyed our lovely four course dinner on the beach. This newly renovated restaurant just opened the day before we dined. The service was fantastic. Chef Rob and his wife are so friendly. Michael, our server, was wonderful. Chef Rob's wife explained the menu which can be either a 4 course meal or ordering a la carte. They offer... More

Super relaxing atmosphere and the food was really good. The meal was a four course set menu and was a nice variety of flavors. Get out of your hotel and come here for a nice meal. Heads up, the only credit card they take is visa.

I had breakfast here and even though it was a simple meal, it was absolutely delicious. Everything from the waiting time to he presentation and taste was 5 stars. The day before, my mom had ordered a salad, and she could not stop talking about how great it was. She even went to compliment the chef. And that's just a... More

We dined with Chef Rob and his staff during Belize's slow season in September and Chef Rob and his wife were renovating the original restaurant which is located actually across the street from their residence. During the reno of the restaurant they actually set up limited dining from their home, with just a few tables (only 4 or 5) on... More

After reading many reviews, I thought that we would have a delicious meal. We were not impressed by the flavors of our food or by the service. We made reservations but when we arrived we got the impression that our server would have rathered had no one to serve. I ordered the Chef Rob Lobster. I didn't care for the... More

We spent 5 nights in Hopkins and one night we decided to try Chef Rob's Kitchen (temporary located in his house). I will start with the food: we had a three course dinner plus dessert that was amazing! Starting with some soup, followed by a salad to end up with a lobster cooked almost to perfection. We had the opportunity... More

Chef Rob changes his menu on a daily base inspired by the freshest products delivered to us by the ocean and the land.

Enjoy a 4 course gourmet menu or 'a la Carte' options while zipping a tantalizing cocktail overlooking the Caribbean sea.

We do welcome vegetarians and will cater to any menu restriction, within reason.
