Don't know what all the hype is. The food was awful and pricey. 166 bz with tax and tip cause the waiter was ok..but really not great. Wish we had gone along the ocean instead, that's what we came to Belize for.

Food was decent but a bit overpriced compared to other spots nearby. We went towards the end of the night, so maybe that was a factor, but I expected a bit more based on other reviews.

Everyone kept telling us we had to try So Fogon. Very good meal with good prices. There is something for everyone. Try the coconut cheesecake and key lime pie.

This place was packed the night we went and for good reason. Inexpensive, fresh and authentic. A trip to San Pedro not complete without a great meal from El Fagon.

English creole in Belize in the review title describes a mediocre response, much as we felt. The owners are lovely; the location is perfectly convenient in San Pedro town, Ambergris Caye; the menu is fun. But many items were not available. Service was painfully slow,...More
