What People are Saying

“Excellent & Friendly Staff”

Excellent service, friendly staff, affordable prices. My first time but will definitely be back. I appreciated the fact that they provide a vegan option which is not a basic salad.

“Loved this Place”

Loved this place! Outstanding food at terrific prices. Nice sized portions, good menu variety, and super attentive staff. No Doubt the owners take great pride in their restaurant. If you’re going to Xunantunich, this is a “Must Stop At” place, right across from the river ferry to grab lunch/dinner and rehydrate in style!

Great for relaxing after exploring the ruins After exploring the Xunantunich ruins for most of the day, I needed a place to get a late lunch. The location of the restaurant is ideal because it's the closest to the ferry bridge that accesses the ruins. Without knowing what to expect, I found this to be an extremely fancy place to eat with a first-class menu. There's something for everyone on this menu and they even offer a kid's menu. Coffee drinkers will also love a menu that has a lot to offer. Currently, they only offer outdoor seating for patrons but the weather is very pleasant in December.

Great Restaurant My friends and I went out for a late lunch yesterday at the restaurant. It’s fairly new so it was my first time there. What a wonderful dining experience! The food was incredible. I had the shrimp Alfredo pasta and it was soooo good! The service was great, too. Very friendly staff. We will definitely come back.

Brunch before Xunantunich This was an impromptu brunch before our Xunantunich visit and what a great discovery! So very clean—restrooms and dining room. Was told it was the 2 month anniversary of the opening. People were super nice and so kind. The food was outstanding. Had the orange strawberry juice and it was so tasty. Everyone in our party raved about their food! I will post pictures. The choices of hot drinks and desserts were numerous. We were stuffed but wanted to try so much more. Highly recommend!

Lunch after visiting the ruins We visited the ruins nearby and came here for lunch afterwards. It was close by and had great food! The fajitas were especially good! Also they have pastries and local chocolates that were superb.
Lunch We were very lucky to discover this little gem. One of us had a ceviche and the others ordered the special of the day witch was chicken with homemade mango sauce with vegetables. Everything was delicious! The lime, ginger and honey juice was really amazing. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant !
