Flavourful simple food at cheaper prices than elsewhere in town. Owner not very pleasant to his staff who where running around like headless chickens without a good system in place. It felt like we walked in on a domestic argument a little. When we asked...More

We loved Wish Kelly's. The night we went there were not many people there and Star, our server was so great and kept our rum punches full! The food was the best we had on the island. Try the jerk snapper if it's available!

It was my first day in Caye Caulker and I was starving. Although I had to white a little while for them to finish cooking the food, it was worth the wait! The food was outstanding.
