My wife loves conch season in Belize, so we tried conch fritters at every restaurant that we visited during our recent stay. We were told they were the best by Elsa at Coral Bay Villas. She was right. Absolutely great with bigger chuncks of conch than others and a great taste. If you go here during conch season, make sure to try them. We also had some great mojitos, healthy portions and fine service. It's not on the beach, but it's worth finding. We will visit again.

We ended up going to El Fogon per recommendation by several hotel employees. Wow, I'm definitely glad we listened! We ended up staying for five hours drinking, eating, and chatting with our amazing waiter, Farid.
The food was delicious and fresh... fish will never taste the same to me again here in the U.S. I had the grilled grouper, my partner in crime had the fried fish balls and we couldn't get enough!

Not only is the food great, but the staff is warm and welcoming. They were genuinely nice and we laughed and joked around with Farid for hours. He deserves a raise! He made it go from a good experience to a fantastic one.

What a wonderful place. We sat a bit to close to where things were being cooked which was quite hot but that was our fault. The food was delicious, great bar drinks & wonderful service. Stewed chicken & rice-excellent!
