Best burgers you will find in Belize! Great service too which is hard to find! Cheap Belikin beers. Think it's owned by same family who owns Belikin.

I had the surf & turf burger. It was amazing! Food took a while to come out but the food was worth it. And the burger was cooked exactly how I asked! I requested medium and I got medium, not medium-well.

I ate at this restaurant a few times during my stay in Belize City and was impressed with their numerous delicious appetizers & drinks. The music is appropriate for the patrons and the outdoor terrace next to the river provides a romantic ambiance with a clear sight of the moon. The food is actually very good and reputable deserts that... More

I stayed one night in Belize City at the Bakadeer Inn and ended up going to the Riverside Tavern just down the street for dinner. I had the fish tacos and they were amazing! The manager, Marvin came over to say hi and make sure I had everything I needed. It has a great vibe and the price is reasonable.... More

It's one of those 'American' places. All decorated like a traditional US restaurant, with waiters well dressed, and the place almost full the whole time. Yes, you probably need a reservation. Main thing on the menu: burgers.
