If you ask a local where to eat they will say Cenaida's. The best food at the best price. Great service and really helpful staff. You may be the only tourist in the place.

You'll find this eatery across from the post office in San Ignacio in a quite alley/side street. The food portions were great and quality was excellent for the price.

This is definitely local cuisine. The menu is not very varied, but it does have some good solid food. Service was efficient, if not overly friendly. We set on the porch, thinking it would be cooler. It turned out to be hotter than inside, so not extremely pleasant. One thing you can say, it is extremely inexpensive.

After a long hike, Cenaida's is an economical and delicious choice for local Belizean fare. The coconut beef dish was quite satisfying and paired well with a banana smoothie.

The service was very fast, and the food was delicious. My wife and I each had the Stewed Chicken, and each dinner cost only $3.50 (American) per person!

The stewed chicken was the great, the best we had during our stay. It's a local place, when we went we were the only tourists. Service was very friendly and efficient. The interior was very clean. Prices were very reasonable and the portion sizes were good. The smoothies were tasty.
