We love small Mom n Pop type businesses, and this is a perfect example why. We were greeted at the front door by a woman grilling fresh pupusas (kind of like a tortilla), and a local man earnestly reported the food here is good, before he took off on his bike with a sack full of pupusas. Not a fancy... More

Loved the pupusas! I had one for an appetizer and then ordered 4 more and had to take one home.......prices were great, including sodas and waters.......You can eat inside or walk up and buy from the street. The very sweet lady making the pupusas is super friendly and our waiter was great too. Cash only! No A/C but lots of... More

This was only a short walk from our hotel (Sun Breeze Hotel), and with the great TA reviews decided to try it out. Never had a pupusa before, so it was fun to try. Very good, and very local. For two of us we had four pupusas, shrimp ceviche and two milk shakes for 50 Belize dollars including tip ($25... More

I was disappointed when I compared this place to some other restaurants on the island. I ordered a burrito and there was so much garlic it was inedible. Service was not bad but again, I had better on the island.

Go try Pupusas and you will keep going back . First off this is the least expensive meal you will find in San Pedro . But , more importantly it is very very good as well . You will be amazed how good these are . If you go past and they are not open .... go back again .... More

The tastes of Central America! Full of delicious options this pupuseria is the best on Ambergris Caye! You can mix and match your fillings for pupusas to your liking with vegetarian options as well! If pupusas aren't your thing, there are plenty other options to choose from to include delicious ceviche, tostadas, burritos and more. The staff was kind and... More

This is a great local place with outstanding food. One of our favorite places we discovered. The best places to eat are not along the beach where all the tourists walk. You have to get off the beach and go to places like this. We ate here several times. Great service and the pupuses are delicious. They are small tortillas... More

Oh my goodness what a great place. Very rustic. Great food. My husband and I shared the shrimp ceviche and it was the best we have had on the island. We then started on the pupusas which are made freshly in front of you with your choice of fillings. They were yummy. Good food, friendly staff, good value. Perfect. Hope... More

After reading reviews, we decided to stop in for a quick mid afternoon bite to eat. We ordered up a plate of 3 pupusas and a chicken burrito. The burrito was quite large and taste was ok, but didn't stand out. The pupusas were very good. Clearly fresh and very tasty. The problem came when we got our bill. Belizian... More

Loved the food! We tried the tostadas, quesadillas and several kinds of papusas! There was something for all of us--a vegan, a vegetarian and two light carnivores. We had a late dinner there and went back twice in the afternoon after returning from morning snorkel and fishing excursions. The servers could not have been more helpful and friendly!
