Delicious meal and drinks! We felt so lucky to find this spot. We had been horse riding and we were so hot and hungry and this restaurant was the perfect remedy. They had food that pleased all 4 of us (which is hard to do). I had a delicious quesadilla. The highlight was the amazing ginger, lime and honey drink, with honey from the owner”s father’s beehives. The staff was friendly.

Best in Cayo!! (Maybe the country, actually!) Fabulous food, lovely atmosphere, great value. I make a point of coming here whenever near San Ignacio/mountain pine ridge, not just when going to Succotz or xunantunich site. Even if first thought is it’s slightly “out of your way” GO!! Give it a try! the location of just up the hill from ferry does make it easy to find and convenient. We’ve been there several times for lunch or dinner, and now breakfast this weekend; always blown away by the quality and presentation. Even when we were the only ones at lunch during covid struggles, they still gave 4star meals. For locals, strawberries are an expensive imported fruit, that we rarely get. Even 4star resorts don’t serve Real strawberries, that strawberry daiquiri is made with a fake sweet mix. (Ugh!) But here they sometimes serve Real Strawberry Juice, and in the waters today at breakfast. Seriously gotta Appreciate their full quality!

A must visit! Wow what a hidden gem. We came there once and kept on coming back. This place is amazing, Rashida the server/manager is the sweetheart and we became good friends. The best and friendliest server I've ever met. The food is absolutely delicious, the omlett, the chicken teriyaki burger, honey shriracha shrimp everything is delicious and beautifully presented on the plate. We went to some hyped places like Guava limb and I'm sorry but there is no comparison, they suck comparing to this place. We will be back, thank you Rashida for your amazing service😊

Absolute gem of a restaurant!!! This newly opened restaurant/Cafe is definitely a surprise to one's senses. We went under a recommendation from the ruins tour guide looking for an authentic Belizean lunch. The atmosphere was inviting and very clean, the lemonades were beyond delicious (cucumber lemonade with vodka was a big hit with our table) and the entrees were huge and delicious. The coconut curry shrimp was amazing, the ceviche was refreshing, the shrimp plantain tostones were delightful and the rice and beans were exactly as they should be. My biggest regret was not taking any photos to add to this review. If you have the chance, stop by and check them out!!

Incredible Food We've been spending time in the Cayo District and this has become one of our favorite places. The food is delicious, and Abby the owner is warm and kind. It's really close to Xunantunich and a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Highly recommend.

Surprisingly Top Notch Not to toot my own own horn as per say, but having over 13 years in the Service Industry and having stayed in most of the 5 star elegant resorts all around Belize and tried many dishes.. I was pleasantly surprised by this place...quietly tucked away in the heart of the Village...it is a gem. I have always seen and heard people going so today after Xunantunich Mayan temples i decided to test it for myself. The place is simply a all in one, romantic setting..family oriented..kids friendly, the business worker...or the tired thirsty beer drinker.. a full fledged cafe with New York Style Coffee and Lattes..frappes...Ice Cream...oh and food...up to par...tried the Lobster tails with BBQ Cola Sauce..it didnt dissapoint, mashed potatoes creamy and tasty and on point Rice &Beans...absolutely had mo space for cheese cake or flan or pudding... Nice to have a place in your backyard with these Ammenities and At a resonable price. Kudos i say to you. See you again. Truth has been told.

We drove from up north to come here, the location is lovely, the place is rather welcoming. The staff needs to pay just a little more attention to their customers.
