Hello World! Last week I posted their first part of two on the little known, Best Restaurants in Belize, San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. As I was writing, I found that I had so many recommendations for San Pedro, that I needed to split the article I two.
So today I am completing the “Best Restaurants in Belize”, Ambergris Caye, Part Two, and I will cover Caye Caulker next week.
As always, I mus first make a disclaimer about the recommendations – these recommendations come from the great folks who have been to these restaurants recently and highly recommend them. Thanks go to Sharyn Cerniglia and Janet Bateman – thank you!
The first recommendation was recommended twice and is for the Black Orchid Restaurant in San Pedro: “We loved the lasagna which is totally hand made. The beer battered fish was amazing. If you bring your own catch, they will cook it for you. Tom and Maribel were amazing host! Go! You will love it!” “There’s nothing else in San Pedro to compare this restaurant to. It’s the same price as many others, and ten times better. Excellent food, excellent drinks, great atmosphere.
Also highly recommended was Casa Picasso “Great food chef jeff and his team are doing great food try the lobster sliders and drinks jason is your guy love the owners thanks jackie and adam.” “The food at Wild Mangos was memorable. Their signature cocktail the Dammed Best Margarita, is indeed the best margarita of the island!! Try the mango glazed snapper with the coconut risotto… what a treat!!! My mouth waters just to think about it!!!! The restaurant has an authentic Caribbean feel and waiters are super nice. Highly recommend it!”
Next is the Blue Water Grill: “As an appetizer we ordered the pork dumplings, which came with an savory peanut sauce. They were almost like pork fried wontons… so yummy. The grouper on plantain cakes was absolutely devine. It was so well seasoned and cooked to perfection.” “We split a few tapas and were really pleased. We split, the sticky shrimp, lobster sliders, and chicken satay after starting with a Caesar Salad. Everything was so good! We really liked the sticky shrimp! To finish it all off we had the Deconstructed Caye Lime Pie! Another winner.”
Hidden Treasure: “This is an absolutely gorgeous restaurant. It’s in an odd location , off the beaten path and in a residential area . We were the only ones dining that evening. The food was amazing, everyone said it was the best meal all week. The ambience is lovely, and the service was excellent.” “This restaurant is beautiful and great for couples. The setting is outdoors yet slightly formal. The food is amazing. Unusual specialty tropical cocktails. A little pricey but well worth it. Service is awesome too. Just bring your mosquito repellent.”
And last but not least is Elvi’s Kitchen. I’ve been to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye on many different occasions, and almost always stop in at Elvi’s Kitchen. Their food is just plain good!
“Awesome place to eat! Had the seafood pasta and it was fantastic. The ambiance is really cool and the food was great. Definitely a must try while you’re here.” “We stopped in for dessert while exploring San Pedro. Staff was friendly, location was unique with sand floors. We had coconut ice cream and coconut pie. The ice cream was tasty, but the pie was crazy good!!! The waitress said that Elvi comes in and makes all the pies herself. You could tell it was homemade with really high quality ingredients.”
