After eating out at nearly every restaurant north of San Pedro over our two week stay, Aji was our favorite dinner spot. Best and most friendly staff we found.

This restaurant is a hidden find on ambergris caye. It is tucked in an out of the way location and you almost pass it. However the location is phenomenal and the meal was delicious! A great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Caribbean Sea.

I can't say enough about our excellent dinner at Aji!! The service and food were the best on the island. And the ambiance can't get better!! If you are in Ambergris Caye, you have to eat at Aji!

One word.... Paella. I ordered it twice on our trip. Generous portions of fish, shrimp and lobster. Awesome! Great food, atmosphere and service. I would have liked to see a better wine list.

This place was so hidden, it was very underrated. This place was mentioned to us by a local so we decided to check it out. It is in the back of a hotel and it is very secluded and hidden in trees, super romantic. The...More

We retuned three nights in raw! Tried almost all vegetarian (veg paella, stuffed tomatoes and salads) and seafood dishes and they were all delicious. Location is wonderful, right in the beach, outdoor sitting only, lots of great atmosphere! Did not fail us.
