Hi from San Diego!

Does anyone have ideas for places to hold a rehearsal dinner for 30 people?

I could suggest El Divino,a new restaurant that is located at Banana Beach Resort.
Email me for more info:

Capricorn Restaurant: north of the river cut; wonderful food; small and tropical; right on the beach at the sea with wonderful view; operated by a great couple, Annabel and Clarence; Clarence is the head chef; recommend you contact them and discuss menus and options; you could set up nice evening boat rides or sailing to the restaurant; see Capricorn Resort under "Goods and Services" menu above; we've had reunion dinners there that were excellent with great service; happy trip and dinner!

Well, there's this one place, where you could have probably the whole place with that number of people, it's very nice and has a great wine list, champagnes, foods everyone can enjoy, either plated or buffet/cocktail party style. The chef is an amazing talent in all repects, but her desserts are truly amazing. It's rated as one of the nicer restaurants around, but of course you would not need to spring for boat rides for 30 people, so you'd have more budget for wine and food, I suppose. Hmmmm...Travellin man, anyone else, what's that place called? Don't they have a website? :rolleyes:

If you would like an awesome belizean BBQ, (seafood, ribs, chicken, etc.local fare, hearty dinner on the beach) try BC's bar. Charlene the owner does an awesome job and catered a wedding over Thanksgiving and we saw her handy work first hand. Plus they do the famous Sunday BBQ you may have read about on this message board. You can contact her at bcbar@btl.net

The food is tasty, plentiful and the price will be reasonable. Tell her Robert and Laura from Colorado sent you . Charlene is the hostess with the mostest and will bend over backwards to make sure you have a great meal and event. Also, Ernie the bartender will make sure your glass is never empty. What more could you ask for?

I can't recall for sure, but it seems like the place had a "classic" sort name.

Yah know, it won't hurt much if the owner did a little unabashed self promotion.

Well I don't think there is any question about where I would have my rehearsal dinner. Casa Picasso! Great Food, Amazing atmosphere and good wines. The great thing about Casa Picasso is that they are in town no need to take the ferry across the cut. Their web site is not finished yet but you could check them out at www.78746.com/casapicasso sorry Marty but the web site will be available here in a few days.

Email Chris and he will take good care of you. I also know that for special parties of this size you will have the restaurant and staff all to yourself. Tell Chris the TravelinMan sent you. Maybe I can get a Martini out of the deal. Just “Joshing”

Chris is also very knowledgeable in the Fine Wines...

My humble opinion is that your dinner is about "experience" which includes setting, food and atmosphere. Taking advantage of the tropical setting on the little island is the strength of the memories you will create. I second Capricorn Resort Restaurant as a unique experience. It is open air, on the beach just feet away from the sea, wonderfully decorated, tropically landscaped and set by itself in an uncrowded, unspoiled area. You could probably just buy the place out for that night for your party. The owners are terrific cooks with everything from sandwiches to pasta to crab claws and much more - blending local ingredients with special recipes. They can arrange water transportation for your entire party - the boat ride is a fun part of this special experience. Just my thoughts. You can eat at the other good in-town places and hotel restaurants for other meals during your stay. Best wishes with everything.
