It was great to eat here the first night and not have to travel far. However, we ate at other restaurants that we liked better.

After a long day of traveling we decided to eat close to our resort, Athens Gate. It was a very short golf cart ride away. Service was was very pleasant and good. Food was of good quality, a little expensive.

Our best dinner on Ambergris Caye. We all had different meals; chicken, shrimp, steak, fish. All were excellent. We also thoroughly enjoyed the margaritas and then moved on to their signature cocktail. Definitely give it a try when you are there.

We didn't take pictures either. What you see is what you get. It is VERY nice. But you go in wearing whatever. They don't care. (They'll also give you bug spray if you need it since it is an open air place.)
