In addition to the places we give full listings to, if you’re hanging out by the Split, you’ll probably want to stop in at the Lazy Lizard (tel. 226-0636), a so-called “sunny place for shady people” serving cold drinks and a menu of local dishes, sandwiches, and burgers. And be sure to stop in at the Lighthouse Ice Cream Parlour on Front Street for a cone or a scoop of some fresh, homemade ice cream.

We also must recommend several simple local restaurants serving fresh fish, seafood, and Belizean standards at very economical rates. The best of these are Marin’s Restaurant & Bar (tel 226-0104), and Errolyn’s House of Fry Jacks (no phone), both located on Middle Street, near the center of town. My favorite of these local joints is Rose’s Grill & Bar ([tel] 226-0407), located on the side street, right next to Hibisca. Their display of the day’s catches makes for a fun, interactive dining experience.

For tasty pizzas try Southside Pizza (tel. 633-3887) an ex-pat run joint in a small building on Pasero Street.

The best cheap eats on Caye Caulker are the various outdoor grills that set up nightly all along Front Street, offering chicken, shrimp, beef, and lobster (in season) at very reasonable rates.
