Really enjoyed our dinner here. Great service and the restaurant is right on the beach. Awesome blackened snapper and sangria A little more expensive than some of the restaurants we ate at.

Lick the plate clean coconut curry with red snapper. The freshest and most flavorful I've ever had. The blackened conch was amazing too. Not too spicy and blackened to perfection.

This outdoor and indoor Belizean Mexican restraunt is a great place to visit for awesome seafood and great ocean views. The blackened fish and conch are exceptional, the ceviche is good, and the fajitas are great! Definitely a place to check out!

We were unable to get in the first 2 nights because you had to have a reservation, they were packed out. The night we went (which was Sunday night) it wasn't crowded. We ate outside on the deck, great atmosphere overlooking the sea.... More
