We ordered the Jerk Chicken and Jerk Seafood. Umani served us and was extremely friendly- felt like home. The spice was spot on! Not all heat- was perfectly balanced, extremely flavorful Jerk, even though I ordered spicy! We drank and chatted for 20 minutes during...our meal with the staff-and will be back! 10 out of 5 stars.More

My family and I chose Caroline’s Cooking for our Thanksgiving dinner. We could not have been more pleased with the service and quality of food. This is a very small restaurant with four or five tables inside. The food is made to order so settle...in and enjoy your time together. The ladies made us feel right at home. The ceviche was some of the best we have had on the island. The lobster cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back to Caroline’s Cooking on our next visit to Ambergris Caye.More

Nice ambiance and excellent food. The smoothies were amazing with very fresh fruit. The meals take a little longer to make as they are all made from scratch.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of our small hotel. It was simply fantastic. Best meal we have had in ambergris Caye. Had the Combo ceviche, also jerk chicken, lobster, shrimp, Caribbean snapper, and curry shrimp. There were seven of us. We will try...to go again. The staff were exceptional. To tell you how much we enjoyed it, I have not written a review for over 5 yrs until now.More

I visited Caroline’s after reading reviews and no lies told. I got the snapper, rice and stem veggies, along with the rum punch. Everything was very flavorful and fulfilling. The service was great and I could not have asked for more. The only regret I...have is not stopping in the first day of our trip. Some of the best cooking on the island.More

Jerk chicken 10/10! Stopped here for dinner and had such great food. Definitely stop here if you’re looking for jerk chicken.

I ate at this restaurant 3 times while in San Pedro. It is my new favorite spot in San Pedro. I had breakfast (bacon and cheese omelet) on Tuesday, they were closed on Wednesday. I went back on Thursday for lunch and had the best...fish & chips I have ever had. I cannot even describe the breading. Then, I went back for dinner and had the lobster with butter sauce. YUM! The staff is amazing (I spoke at length with Caroline's daughter), such nice people. I wanted to stop in again before flying out but did not have enough time. I will dream about Caroline's until my next visit to San Pedro. Do yourself a favor and eat here. Support local businesses in the process.More

Everything about Caroline's Cookin' is outstanding--the food, the service, the hygiene practices (Covid), and the atmosphere. They are accommodating and gracious hosts who genuinely love what they do; we went for lunch, and loved it do mu c h we returnedthe followingnightfor dinner. The food...is excellent--you will not regret eating here!The tacos are superb (we had fish and shrimp tacos), as is the Caribbean Snapper. My daughter loved their banana juice, too.More
