Restaurant is mostly outdoors under an enormous tree and is beautiful at night. So the setting is worth eating here at least once. However, you can get a better (and cheaper meal) across the street at the Radisson. The setting is beautiful, though.

We had a great dinner here during our stay in Belize City. The red snapper, crusted, was delicious as was the blackened red snapper. I only wish we had been able to return to try other items on the menu. The waitress was excellent.
