There’s no assembly-line production, Styrofoam wrappings, or U.S.-style short-order cook here. Which means that the speed of service won’t be up to American diner norms. So get on Belize time and enjoy this long-standing restaurant, which consistently serves hearty, tasty local fare at great prices. Best on the menu are the fresh fish or shrimp in the Belizean creole, Cajun, or curry sauces—Omar isn’t afraid to spice up his cooking. There’s a homey, welcoming vibe to the whole operation, which is located streetside on the main road. If there’s no free table, you’ll probably be able to take a seat with another fellow diner who has room.
