We stopped by after our Sit and Sip adventure. Cheap bucket of beer! A lot cheaper than the ship! Good service, good food, fun atmosphere. We enjoyed our stop.

Nothing out of the ordinary. The staff seemed distracted, missing some of our food order. We had to ask for our bill and it was messed up. Just a mediocre experience overall. Probably would skip if there again.

I don't usually have high expectations of restaurants that cater primarily to tourists, but we were tired and hungry after a tour, and it was convenient. My friend got the appetizer sampler and I got the pork tacos and a plate of fried plantains, and...More

Good service, cold beer, and tastiest conch fritters. Definitely a must do. Right on the cruise ship dock, so you don't have to walk far.

Convenient location on the pier of the Belize cruise ship port. Downstairs offers great cocktails and light snacks, the upstairs is a full restaurant offering the best of Belizean cuisine. Conch, shrimp, fresh fish. Everything is made fresh daily. A great place to spend the day, to relax, or get up dance and party with us.
