Maurice is an amazing cook. We ended up having 4 out of 7 dinners here the week we stayed because no other place compared. Staff is super friendly, and it has a very cool atmosphere.

not fancy, very simple! BBQ lobster was yummy. All meals are 20 Belize. Choose from pork shoulder, chicken, shrimp, lobster, fish fillet. Depends on the day. Each meal served with vegetables, rice and beans.

"Mama Star's the name; cooking's my game" we heard as we walked in... To what appears to be literally just be someone's back garden with a few haphazard tables thrown up. No menu - mama star came over and brought us a couple of cold beers and told us what she was grilling tonight. Lots of happy chattering filled the... More

If you just want to show up and eat whatever Willy wanted to cook that night, just go there! Amazing food, great atmosphere, perfect place to spend your evening after watching the sunset. There are a few tables in his garden and he cooks just a few dishes a day, that ensures fresh food. I tried it 2 years ago... More

I was with a tour group and our last dinner together was at Wish Willys. It was a great way to spend our last night at a big family style table with loads of food. Everything was fantastic. We all had fun!

This is a cool little spot and a must to visit. It's basically in someone's backyard but that's what makes it so special! Star was working the bbq and let's just say she is a master griller! Food is amazing!

It was the best meal we had on the Island Lobster tails, chicken cooked perfectly Vegetables which were like a ratatouille Beers cold that you get... More

I was here some years ago. Our water taxi broke down on the open water for 4 hours. We got in late and were starving. A girl on the boat told us about Maurice. At 11pm he jumped out of his hammock and whipped us up curried veggies and a chicken, belekins, and even a smoke within minutes of sitting... More
