Even though the guy outside is a little rude and pushy, don't let him stop you from going inside. Ate here a couple times. Anything with pork is delicious!! The Cuban iced coffee should not be missed!

The only reason to eat here is the whole pig on the BBQ a la Cuban style. It was tender and came with mild spicy sauce on the side. The side dishes (potatoes, coconut rice and garlic bread) were ok, nothing to mention. Very nice atmosphere, kind service. They give few free drinks (run&pineapple, Cuba libre&coke) free with each dinner... More

a lovely little hostel in caye caulker. the rooms are very very small, you can only sleep there, bur you have all the beautiful island around you so you really dont need more. the host is very pleasant and nice, the food downstairs is amazing! and there is hot water in the shower :)

The title says it all. We ate here the first night on the island because we walked by and it was colorful and the guy out front was friendly. We had lobster and it was fine, but I can't even remember what else we ate there.

Great BBQ pork made fresh daily. Great menu including soups and salads. Reasonably priced. On the beach.

We ate here our first night on the island, we sat outside and had a beautiful view of the ocean and the moon. We had wonderful service and fresh seafood dishes with the drink special. Good meal and very reasonable prices on the entrees.

Ok, this was a mistake. The biggest dining mistake we made and I should have known better. First, it was not full... almost empty at dinner time and I know why. I am sure the snapper I ordered was actually some frozen fish. It was tough, overcooked and the sides were just nasty. I would not eat here again.

This was a nice relaxing spot that we actually ate at twice. We did the buffet when we first arrived and thought it was good for the price. We then ordered sandwiches to go to take on the ferry and they were very good too. The location is fantastic right on the beach. Make sure to eat outside.

Bought a Cuban sandwich here for lunch, it was ok, but had better lunches while on Caye Caulker. Best part of the sandwich was the bread.

The nachos are surprisingly good – good enough so that if you want nachos, go here. My vegetable curry and vegetarian spaghetti were not as good as other options on the island.
