Looking out for the best food places to go to. Coming in May for 5-6 days. We will be 5 miles north but will travel down daily. The taste and quality of the food is most important and then environment and then if it matters the actual ambiance.
We love all cuisines and want to surely experience authentic local food too.
We like nice sit down places and roadside hang outs too. Places with a good pub/bar night life is also good to knock off food and dance and drinks together.
Also, is there a special special place I can take my wife on our 10th anniversary evening. Possible a local romantic secret. I mean the whole place seems special special so I do not know how to top it.
On the water: Blue Water Grill (lunch and dinner) Lily's Treasure Chest (lunch, great for people watching) Wild Mango (lunch or dinner) Fido's (great music and key lime pie) Estelle's (best breakfast on the island)
In town: Caramba's The Reef (great prices) Mickey's El Fagon (authentic Maya food, secluded spot near airport) Elvi's (Maya buffet on Friday nights)
For sunset over the lagoon, back side: Sunset Grill
For romantic, out of the way: Hidden Treasures
Great burgers and live music: Legends Burgers (just north of the bridge; great music and dancing on Tuesday nights-jam night)
Great BBQ: Lazy Croc (about one mile north of bridge, on edge of small lagoon with crocs)
Near Lazy Croc: Ak Bol (a yoga retreat that has a bar and restaurant right on the water that has great food for breakfast or lunch at great prices. Beautiful and peaceful--toes in the sand...)
I also heard that Red Ginger at The Pheonix resort is great.
The papusa stands on middle street are great too.
For delicious frozen custard try DandE's on middle street next to Caramba's.
There are so many wonderful choices that we can't fit them all in on our visits! Enjoy!
On the very north edge of town, the island is "cut" in two by a "river" that flows from the ocean side to the lagoon side of the island. It separates San Pedro from the much larger and less inhabited north part of the island. There are many nice resorts up north.
There is a small toll bridge that crosses the river. Up until 2006, it was a hand-pulled ferry crossing...
I loved Lily's Treasure Chest for lunch - And Blue Water Grill was so nice for dinner. It's been over 3 years, and my hubby still raves about the Key Lime Pie we had at Ramon's. I was sad to see that Ambergris Delight is gone - that was our favorite spot for dinner
