Our hotel (Almond Beach Resort & Spa) recommended we visit Chef Rob's, and boy was it a great decision. My boyfriend and I are both vegan and often have a hard time eating while traveling. We immediately informed the server at the restaurant and asked if there was anything on the menu we would be able to eat. He went... More

You have to eat here if you're in Hopkins. The food was amazing, the hosts, Rob and Corrie, were very gracious and welcoming. The staff was super friendly and attentive. It was a wonderful experience on our last night in Hopkins.

Great food and service in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Highly recommend the seafood options. Best lobster I've ever had. Excellent place to take family and friends but overall it's very romantic with the water just feet away and the palapas roof.

My boyfriend and I ate here while on our trip to Belize. From the outside during the daytime it doesn't look like much of a restaurant. But sitting along the ocean shore tables at night for dinner felt so romantic. I ordered the 4 course meal which included a delicious soup to start, fruit salad, unbelievable garlic shrimp with rice,... More

Truly happy you enjoyed your food and service We change our menu on a daily base, based on all fresh ingredients. All food is cooked fresh to order and nothing is pre-cooked. There for it might take a bit longer at times but it is surely fresh and flavor full. Hope to see you back soon More

We ate here one evening on our honeymoon. It was right next to the hotel. The service was great and so was the food. It was a breezy evening, but made for a nice setting. I got beef and lobster. Chef Rob himself came and greeted us. A nice romantic place in Hopkins!

Yes sometimes mother nature plays little trick on us, it can be a bit windy at times when your table is about 60 foot away from the ocean. We are happy you enjoyed your dinner with us though. . Maybe you should make Belize vacation a yearly event to celebrate you anniversaries. We do have wonderful new rooms at Parrot... More

Sat at ocean shore table, very romantic. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Place is a bit of a mess since they are remodeling. Should be lovely when complete. One of the best in Hopkins.

Thank you for your visit. We were renovating our restaurants and added some hotel rooms and agreed it was a bit messy at times. 99% of the work is done now and we think the place looks great! More

2016 was our third successive Thanksgiving to spend at Parrot Cove & Chef Rob's Gourmet Cafe - and he never ceases to amaze! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is perfect, and you couldn't ask for friendlier staff. Definitely recommend it to anyone!

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.
