That is strange - that's what thought when I read those 5 bad reviews about this place. We stayed 2 nights at Nathalie's Paradise with a capital P and truly loved it. The calm and quiet days and nights, the fruit trees, the horses who are walking around not tight up, the chill common area and the great talks with... More

We had several of Nathalie's wonderful meals while we stayed at Backpacker's Paradise. Rising above the rest was the lion fish. Wow! Nathalie's preparation of it is phenomenal. It was one of the best meals we had in Belize (and we had a lot of great meals in Belize). And better yet, lion fish are an invasive species that are... More

The menu is simple, but the food is delicious! Definitely try the Lion fish. Nathalie is very friendly and cooks the food to order. The prices are a bit higher than the local establishments in Sarteneja, but she offers dishes that are not easily found elsewhere.

I only ate breakfast here a couple of times. The food was good and reasonably priced. I had pancakes which were well cooked and filling. It was possible to refill my water bottle at the bar which was very handy as it saved me having to carry heavy water all the way from the town.

We spent several days in the area and stayed at the Backpacker's Paradise. So we had a couple of breakfasts and diners at Nathalie's Restaurant. The food is really good and prepared from scratch after you order. But there is a noticeable difference in the quality when Nathalie herself is not cooking it. When she is working the food is...
