My favorite place is a new one called Mangos. Really cool people there. Prices are moderate. Food is Cajun and Carribean.

Estel's Dine by the Sea in the center of town on the beach is my favorite breaksfast stop. Nothing like watching the sunrise over the Caribbean, with your feet in the sand sippin' the coffee. Belize and American foods, plenty of music and great people.
Do a search and you will find everyone's favorites!

Whatever you do don't miss BC'S BBQ on Sundays. The food is excellent and you will have a great time. It starts around 11:30 and I hear it sells out around 4. My boyfriend and I liked Lilly's for breakfast and dinner.

Nothing beats rum cake from Celi's Deli for breakfast. Dinners at Celi's on the beach are great too.

This was taken from an earlier post....
The only thing that is different since the hurricane is that the Smokehouse is no longer there.....I heard today though that the guy that ran it is now at the Palapa Bar & Grill north of the cut. I hope so....he's got Great food!

There is one I'd like to add to the list....Papi's Diner.....good food......good prices and great company! It's behind the Seven Seas Resort on the beachfront. Just find Seven Seas....and then go to the street behind it....or ask anyone in town....they will direct you.

Also......Elvi's is back in business and lookin good.....great job on their building.
They are ready to serve up that great food!

I fell in love with Estell's when I first visited Ambergris Caye in 1995. The food was good....the grouper sandwich was excellent. I think breakfast is also my favorite time there. It is great to sit outside with your feet in the sand and watch the water while having your morning coffee. I think the sea breeze aids in digestion too....LOL. I don't dine there often now....not because the food isn't good...it's just that with inflation...the prices have gone up a bit since my first visit there. If I were on vacation I probably wouldn't mind it...but living here I try to watch my budget....lol.
Here are a few of the local places that have good food at great prices.(Most of these Jesse mentioned earlier...we must eat at the same places Jesse...LOL)

JAMBEL JERKS is one my favorites. Nice atmosphere, great fish basket and coconut curry chicken. He makes a mean pina colada too! HUGE!

CANNIBALS is my lunch hangout every day and favorite. They have great baked potatoes with various toppings and good salads. The pan fried fish dinner is really great. Good prices too. They dont do dinner though. This is another good breakfast spot....on the beach too. Great waffles!

REEF RESTAURANT on middle street. Cheap...good local food. I get lobster burritos for $5 bz. You can get a whole fish fried with rice and beans for about $7 bz. Sand floor...nice staff...clean bathrooms.

CELI'S DELI on Front St. Good sandwiches! Great tamales! No burgers though.
SMOKEHOUSE at THE BOATYARD...ask anyone in town...they can direct you. The food is a little bit higher but not unreasonable. They make a great burger....and the smoked chicken is very good. Nice potato salad too! You get the added plus of sitting lagoon side here...and there is always a nice breeze. I've had very relaxing lunches here.

TACO STAND...at least that's what I call it...LOL It is next door to the Rock's grocery on Middle St. Just a little hole in the wall....painted blue...very tiny. They have good tacos and burritos there. The tacos are 3 for $1bz....you can rack up on these....

RUBY'S DELI...Front St.....good place to get breakfast...wonderful cinnamon buns....place is always busy in the AM.

CORAL BEACH DIVE SHOP....LOL....yes a dive shop....for breakfast. A little known fact amongst tourist is that they have the best Johnny Cakes I've ever eaten. For a $1.50 bz each...you get a bisquit-like bun filled with this shredded chicken mixed with a sauce. To this day I've been begging for the recipe. Put a little hot sauce on those and boy...you've got a meal. That is the poor man's Belizean breakfast....LOL
OOPS!.....I forgot a couple

The girls at the Hideaway make mean down home cookin'! Good prices and great laid back fun!

Just north of the Belize Yatcht Club.....on the same side of the street.
Good food.....good service and good prices.
Great Curry!.....the Sweet and Sour ain't bad either!

Has Elvi's rebuilt on their original property? I think this would be a good thing to post!

Jambel's Jerk Pit is the greatest! No wimps though, its real jerk. The jerk lobster special is to die for, moderate prices too.
Best deal is sidewalk cuisine, go to the one that has "Coca Cola" on it. Stewed chicken rice and beans plate, burritos, everything made from scratch, yum!
Papi's Diner on Middle Street, in residential area past the high school. Great food, inexpensive.
Ambergris Delight on Middle Street has best fried chicken in town. The Reef, also on Middle Street has great food at low prices, the stewed lobster is wonderful.
