My wife and I had dinner here on the second night of our honeymoon. The restaurant was top rated on TripAdvisor, so we thought it would be a good place to start. I must say, the French Touch has earned its reputation and should remain...in this top spot. We were one of only two couples seated for dinner that night, so we had a very close and intimate experience from the start. This was not like your normal restaurant experience…more like a dinner party with old friends. Patrick and Cynthia were immediately welcoming, gracious, and engaging hosts. Our fellow diners were a treat, and were celebrating a birthday while we were celebrating our recent marriage. Within moments we were all laughing, sharing our stories, dancing to Nina Simone, and drinking fantastic cocktails. Patrick ran the kitchen but was very much a presence in the room. Cynthia was lovely and shared a pre dinner dance, while we waited for our delectable appetizers. Dinner was a lamb ragout (for me) and short rib (for my wife). Both were outstanding and fall off the bone perfect. The sauces were spot on and the sides were well chosen. We were not unsurprised by the quality of the food. This is, after all, the top rated French restaurant on island. We were, however, happily surprised by just how much fun we had with the People! I highly recommend this restaurant. Bring your appetite, your open heart, and leave your expectations at the door. You will enjoy every minute!More

My wife and I had a GREAT experience tonight at the French Touch. The food was incredible from the appetizer (grilled shrimp) , a wonderful ceasar salad, the braised short ribs and lamb were perfect, and we capped off the meal with bananas foster to...die for. Besides the outstanding food, we really enjoyed the interaction with Chef Patric and team. We will make sure we make reservations before we arrive next time to ensure that we can enjoy another night. Make the French Touch a part of your memories of San Pedro.More

I am a 2 time graduate if the Culinary Institute of America so to say I'm a foodie is an understatement...we went to The French Touch our first night in the island. It is a quaint restaurant with an awesome atmosphere and the food is...amazing! You will quickly become friends with the other diners in the restaurant as well as the servers and owner/chef. Such a great vibe here! We loved our meal here so much we came back a second time. The souffle is not to be missed!More

Having dinner at Chef Patrick's The French Touch is unBELIZEable. My husband and I will definitely be back! It's like stepping into his house for a dinner party. Come for his warm hospitality, stay for his souffle.

The food, the service, the ambiance all combine to the best food experience in Belize. The chef is clearly so talented and ensures you have a truly fun and delightful experience. I don’t know how to top it here on Ambergris Caye. Don’t miss this...opportunity for wonderful French food.More

This was my first visit to The French Touch and I kick myself for not going sooner. Un-freaking-real!!! We sat at the Chef’s Table and watched the master create dish after dish. I had the bone-in pork-chop and without a doubt it was the best...pork chop I have ever eaten. (I ate at Perry’s Steakhouse last week and while their pork-chops are outstanding… there’s a new Big Dog. At most restaurants there’s always loud banter throughout the meal….not at The French Touch. When the food arrives, it goes quiet. I can’t wait to go back again and share this experience with others. Patrick is the real deal. You will not be disappointed!More

Excellent cuisine in a pretty setting with a charming host and EXCELLENT Chef! The restaurant is small and cozy. The food is EXTRAORDINARY! You can still have a comfortable laid back San Pedro vibe while dining on excellent French cuisine right here in town! Host...Christian will set you up with a drink while you consider the menu. You are able to watch Chef Patrick do his magic in the kitchen which is enclosed with glass panels but visible from the dining room. Tonight we started with caprese salad and snails. The pesto on the mozzarella had the nice crunch of pignoli and fresh basil. Needed lots of bread to dip into the garlic butter on the escargot. As mains we had beef short ribs and lamb stew Provençal. OMG! Both dishes served on top of mashed potatoes. The meats were melt in your mouth tender with rich and satisfying sauces. Crème Brûlée finished off our meal. The menu is broad- beef, pork, lamb, fish, all prepared with skill and care. Wine list is very good. Call today to make your reservation. You’ll thank me later.More

We came to the restuarant in June ( he was just about to reopen) At first by a taxi driver we were told the restaurant was closed. However, we were out in the area and saw Chef Patrick fixing up the place. I stop by...and he let me know he was a little booked but he fit us in and he asked if it was a special occusion and I let him know it was my birthday, etc. He gave a smile and said wonderful! We arrived and had a little wait because he was packed and the needed to make room but within 15 minutes or less he had a table for us. He had ran out of a few menu items but was very accomdating. I love the fact you can watch him cook and do his thing and let me tell you it is fun and intersting to watch. we loved every minute of it. We love every minute of our food. If i could have I would have licked my plate..lol. It was that good. The best testing food me and my husband have had in a long time. It brought us back to our time in France. The decor is beautiful and nicely lit. The bartender/waitier made me and my husband a dessert drink to die for..I mean it was yummy. It made the ending to my birthday week so special. Patrick the chef and owner was great to talk too and very personable. We really enjoy our dinner and will comeback when we return in September. So thank you for the marvelous meal and atmosphere.More

Most places in San Pedro do- unless you're eating at a small outdoor stand you can rely on using your card (we found this to be the case in San Ignacio and Placencia as well).
