We heard the Running W had the best steaks in San Ignacio, so we went for dinner. From the beginning it was clear that service was not the strength of the restaurant. The onion soup was excellent. My wife's aged steak was largely gristle. Mine was okay. This was our most expensive dinner in Belize, but definitely not the best.

Sitting with friends on the far corner of the balcony that evening was one of the most peaceful and yet sensitizing experiences. The ambiance, both natural and created by the hotel was brilliant! All this before the Toucans dropped by for a late evening visit!!! Service was courteous and prompt. The wine and food was delicious and well presented. Kudos... More

Had dinner at Running W and had a great time. Our server (Michael) was great telling us the history of the area and resort. The food was excellent and we definitely recommend.

Belizean breakfast was delicious - absolutely loved the breakfast jacks (rather like sopapillas, but without the honey, or Navajo fry bread for those of you that know southwestern food). My scrambled eggs were perfect - they best I have had in years in any restaurant. My husband had the grilled pork chops twice in the four nights we spent here... More

We LOVED the Running W steakhouse! The dining room was beautiful and the balcony also had beautiful seating that featured monkeys in the trees nearby! I had the filet mignon and it was incredible on its own, but the mashed potatoes, veggies and sauce that came with it were all perfectly cooked and seasoned. We had a great time with... More

This year's Thanksgiving dinner was excellent. The soup was perfection, and the stuffed turkey was delicious. The apple pie was really too good to be true. Totally enjoyed it!

The Hotel's all-day dining restaurant offers a newly remodelled air-conditioned dining hall that boasts exceptional views of the hillside property. The menu is international with all the flavours and the best of Belizean cuisine featuring meats from our own family's ranch where the Restaurant got its name. Dining outdoors very often includes the visit of resident birds, including toucans, that come to feed on nearby trees making for a unique "dining with the birds" experience. Some favourites include our specialty steaks as well as tasty Lebanese dishes from our family recipes. Running W Steahouse's Lobby Bar is open to the outdoor dining area of our Running W Steakhouse & Restaurant and offers a modern Baroque design themed décor. In this relaxed, open concept and air-conditioned setting, guests can enjoy an innovative selection of classic cocktails and Belizean mixology offered alongside a menu of light plates. With live music on some weekends, the Lobby Bar is the perfect place for an afternoon drink, early aperitif or, late evening cocktails.
