We had the fish fillet with ginger rice which was excellent. Washed it down with a couple of ice cold el presidente beers. Beautiful view over looking the Gulf of Honduras.

Talk about fantastic food! Asha's unique formula is his unbounded smile and fresh ingredients . Sit on the deck looking out at the blue sea in this refreshing setting helped by most friendly staff. Best chocolate cake in the world.

Lobster tail was good. The drink named the touch was delicious. The restaurant was empty and prices were a bit higher than we have seen at other places

We went here on the advice of a local and found the fish to be excellent. We had fried Lion Fish and grilled grouper with sides of fried plantains, yams, and coconut rice. All the food was very fresh and Asha was a very nice and passionate chef. The prices are Avery reasonable but slightly higher than some other restaurants.... More

I was truly amazed. Now coming from Canada, some might consider my exposure to seafood as being somewhat limited. But I have always been a person that jumped at any opportunity to try something new. Especially something different than our normal western cuisine. But today I enjoyed a seafood dish that I can assure any of my family and friends... More

Asha's was recommended to us by a couple of people and was the only restaurant in town open on New Year's Day evening. It was fantastic! We had lionfish, calloloo (a yummy, tender kind of greens, similar to collards), and plaintains. Everything tasted so fresh and delicious and it's all prepared with passion and love. I love the ambiance there... More

I was in Punta Gorda for 7 days and had the opportunity to eat at Asha's just down the street from my hotel at the Blue Belize and the food was excellent. Great atmosphere on the water, relaxed and found several fellow travelers to talk with while I was there. Highly recommend.
