2miles restaurant reviews for January 2008 - 01/28/08 12:31 AM

Quickie report: We were in San Pedro for 10 days with 8 guests and a bunch of our local friends. This is my first food / fun report so bear with me.

Lunch - Blue Water grill Great as always, Friendly staff

Dinner - (a few times) at El Patio really good, nice staff, all of us Loved it. Saw IgaKen / IgaMel there too.

Lunch / Dinner - Sweet Basil's, again, everyone loved it , Great staff, Very friendly owners, Excellent service, (No I am not related to them) Dinner and desert were outstanding. Loved meeting Rex their old English sheepdog (kinda partial we have 2 ourselves).

Breakfast - Luna (Journeys end) very good breakfast, friendly staff.

Lunch - Tackle box Norte (Way Up North) stopped by for some afternoon appetizers and drinks. Did some snorkeling right off their docks, food is good ,small menu but good for a quickie lunch. Nice staff.

Dinner - (Take out) Pasta La Vista lasagna and garlic bread for like 20 people. (Big football party @ 2miles house that day)- Fantastic, Doesn't get any better, every one had seconds. (Thanks Sherry)

Breakfast - Captain Morgans - good food no complaints

Lunch - Carumbas - Me & Captain Jeff, I had a fajita and I forget what he had because I was too busy bull$#!ting with him. Very good, nice staff. (Disclaimer: I am stealing this portion of Captain Jeffs food report this month as I bought him lunch so I get to report on this restaurant) smirk .

Dinner - Casa Picaso - What can I say that hasn't already been said? Totally satisfied customers here, every last one of us. Thank you Chris & Jenn for your great food and super hospitality
Absolutely one of our favorite restaurants on the island.

Party - BC's Beach Bar, Great BBQ on Sundays With Dennis Wolfe and the usual suspects to set the mood. We had a contingent of 20 or so people from north of the cut there with us, And some of us jammed with the band. This is the place to be on Sundays for sure. (It's good other days also) The Bartenders are great and lots of fun too. Oh yea, saw Tacogirl, The Iga's, to name a few.

Provisions - My man Simon at Lagniappe Provisioning www.lagniappe-belize.com hooked us up with the freshest stuff on the Island delivered right to our kitchen and into our fridge. (Sorry about the 2 trips you had to make Simon) blush

2miles, great report! I too enjoy Capt. Jeff's company. Glad y'all got to "hook up" for lunch.

Thanks for the report! I need some suggestions when I'm down with the fam in a few weeks. Wish you and the Mrs. were down too! frown

Since Hamiltonís has closed and Sweet Basil has opened we have a new tradition here for night of arrival. Iíve had a lot of guests since the first of November and I have taken each and every one of them to Sweet Basils. No one has been disappointed and they have all wanted a return trip.
The other day my daughter and I had a mid day lunch/dinner and I am still amazed at the salad they prepared. Can you believe shredded lettuce, cucumbers, tomato wedges, hard cooked eggs, boiled potato cubes, tuna and anchovies? YES anchovies! All dressed with a basil vinaigrette dressing.
Great fun to find a creative chef.
And no - I am not related.

Wow! Don't know if I want to take resturant advice from someone who can't even manage to remember her own log-on info. How can we be sure she remembers which restaurant she visited?? wink
