Rotisserie Grill, Specialty at Banana Beach's El Divino

If you love barbecue, fasten your napkin and raise your fork tines: you’ll find a dream come true at El Divino Caribbean Steakhouse and Martini Lounge. And as El Divino’s long official name suggests, you’re also likely to find more types of martinis than you’ve ever heard of before.

Banana Beach’s El Divino restaurant features both outdoor seating and indoor air-conditioned split level dining with high ceilings and unique local artwork. A spacious yet intimate setting creates a romantic ambience with exquisite menu presentations that taste as delicious as they look.

For breakfast, try oak smoked salmon on bagels and cream cheese, or belizean banana pancakes with whipped cream. For lunch, try a sirloin burger, charred beef carpaccio, or a gourmet pizza. For dinner, a “must” is the Brazilian-style rotisserie grill, a house specialty. Marinated and grilled beef, seafood, poultry, pork, vegetables and a few other surprises are brought to your table, presented on a skewer and served. It promises to be one of your most memorable meals in Belize.

Just inside the door at El Divino is an eclectic lounge where you can enjoy the island's largest selection of cool tropical cocktails and martinis. If you’ve never tried a martini, this is the place to start, with almost a dozen to choose from, including the James Bond Martini, Mudslide Martini, Almond Joy Martini, and the San Pedrini.

Banana Beach is located on one of the best stretches of beach on Ambergris Caye, just far enough south from the town of San Pedro for real tranquility.

The two, three and four bedroom suites have jacuzzi bath tubs. The suites are all furnished with locally made Rattan furniture, decorated with ceramic art and hand-woven tapestries from the Yucatan.
