Enjoyed a nice lunch with our group and had time to polish off a bucket of Belikin beer. Enjoyed the upper level.

We stopped in for a beer and ended up staying for a few and enjoying some good food. Music playing was great and the signs around the bar are hilarious. Great husband day care.

Thanks so much for stopping by and getting our deal of 2 for $5.00 beers. I also love it when our guests enjoy our sense of humor. We love searching for signs, or making them up ourselves. Glad you had a good time. Please come back for another visit. Laura More

A short walk from the cruise ship tender drop area. This place is on two levels overlooking the bay. We did not have any food here but managed to polish off a bucket of local beer for $13 which is good value ( 6 bottles in the bucket ). Staff were friendly and attentive. A nice place to sit and...

We stopped here for a cold beer and lunch after walking around the port area most of the morning. We needed our Belikin beer which is a good local beer and some conch! We ordered the conch ceviche, and conch fritters which were both very good. There was a twist in the conch fritters as they were spicier than some... More

When located in something called "tourism village" it's exactly as expected. Food all tastes like exactly what you'd get "back home" so, if adventure is not your thing, avoid. Service is fast and efficient and tHe staff are super friendly.

Thanks for your comments, I must say,I have never had salsa, or ceviche, or fritters like the Wet Lizard makes anywhere. We have been told that we offer some of the best Caribbean food, I am sorry it didn't satisfy you, but I am glad to hear our staff on point. Do come and try us again. Laura More

We were denied access multiple times to this restaurant because we were street tourists and weren't with the cruise ships. Clearly this restaurant and the catastrophe that is 'tourism village' caters only to cruise ship tourists and is horribly unorganized. We tried several times over several days to go to this restaurant and were constantly turned away. Thanks a lot.... More

I am very sorry you were not able to get in. We have to bide by the rules of the tourism village which is a duty free zone. Typically guests just have to go to the security booth to check in and drop ID then you are free to roam all over the village. If we do not bide by... More

Stopped here after wandering around Belize city for an afternoon while on a cruise over the Christmas holidays. Lunch was good, drinks were cold and atmosphere was relaxing. Wifi is free, but super slow. Would definitely come back here again to waste away an afternoon.

A great spot to have a drink, bite to eat and listen to the music. While over looking the water.. So if you like to shop and your husband likes to sit it's the perfect place.. Since the duty get shop is right next door... But they do have restriction, if you fly in you can only purchase the day... More
