There's no question that if you walk through the back alleyway that leads to this restaurant, you'll turn around and walk the other way. You'll get whiffs of a foul fishy stench. Broken planks of wood liter the grounds leading to The Little Kitchen. A large weathered purple loveseat sits abandoned under a palm tree right next to the stairs... More

Agree with what some other reviewer's have said, the conch fritters are unbelievable. It's a little sketchy getting there, but once you've made it, it's wonderful. Nice rooftop beautiful breeze the staff was incredibly friendly. Definitely a place to go multiple times if you are on the island for more than a few days.

This was our first meal on the island. Although the island is small, this is definitely off the beaten path away from the "night life". Walk upstairs to helpful, welcoming service. We had a curry lobster dish and also something with shrimp. Both were very tasty and fresh. I would definitely recommend the little kitchen!

Probably the best food option on the island in terms of value for your money. (All foodstuffs are grossly overpriced throughout the island, but at least here the prices are slightly more reasonable - and the friendliness and personal service make it squarely the best option on Caye Caulker)!

After reading several reviews and looking at pictures, I thought this was going to be a hidden gem. Arriving there the smell alone should have told us to turn around. The area was not what you'd expect for even back street dining. We were the only ones there. The bugs were awful. Thankfully we were brought a bottle of bug... More

There are signs posted which makes it easy to find, and so worth it! Truly homemade, local, secret recipes here being passed down from generations. Mom, the owner, has taught her daughter the ropes, who is teaching her daughters! Nice selection, fish dishes are fabulous, gotta go!

This restaurant is tucked away from the main street, but it is worth the search. Up a flight of stairs, and there you are. The prices are reasonable and the food is very good. What more can you ask for?
