Best Restaurants San Pedro Belize
When we first got to this little island I was disheartened, we had tried a few places with not much success. The food was downright crappy. The supermarkets were expensive, the fruit and veg not fresh and it seemed there was nowhere to eat. Especially for a family who don't eat seafood.
Then we read SanPedroScoop and got in touch with Rebecca for some advice. And the very first night, on her advice, we ate at DJ’s & met Joe, a Belize expat who had a great deal of knowledge on where to eat. And with his list in hand we finally started to find a few treasures on the island.
But first a few tips:
- If you are driving around looking for food it may very well elude you. Jump out of the golf cart, walk down to the beach and all of a sudden you will see the restaurants… lots of them.
- Don’t be put off by the word “bar”. We, at first, hardly ate anywhere cause everything was a “bar” and with kids we did not think that would be appropriate, but most of the places are super kid-friendly and have yummy food, not just alcohol.
- The food takes awhile everywhere. Most food is made fresh on the spot so add in your wait time and get there early, not when you’re starving.
You only need this one list for your enjoyable San Pedro, Belize getaway. That’s right I compiled a delicious and tantalizing list for your drooling, wishing and hopefully tasting pleasure. Enjoy!
Located on the beach. Park the golf cart on Front Street at the very southern end near the chocolate store and walk to the beach. Beautiful location overlooking the aqua sea.
We tried several times to eat here before we finally managed. It’s always packed and there is good reason, it’s delicious. Amy’s Salad, Taco Salad, Tacos (crispy like I like them), pork chops, the guacamole - all of it excellent. Smoothies are delicious and can be doubled for $3.25.
This had to be one of our absolute favourites. Whenever I needed a salad there was no where else to go. Yummy.
