AVOID AVOID AVOID! After reading good reviews we visited Wish Willy one two occasions, hoping the second time to get better food and service. The first time we went just the two of us. We ordered quickly but were quickly shocked at how one particular staff member treated other customers, berating them for wanting to see a menu and being... More

We tried this place after two fantastic nights at Maggies sunset kitchen. Very much the vibe that you are joining a local BBQ in their yard. No formality, no menu. Help yourself to a beer in the cooler service. We had grilled lobster, which was OK, a bit tough and were only given lobster tails rather than a full lobster.... More

These people know how to cook! Flavorful island food! But . . . try to get there early. We showed up at about 8 pm and very little was still available ... and they no longer had beer!

The only place on Caye Caulker that we ate at more than once, because it was so good. Grilled lobster and jerk chicken were outstanding.

We showed up this evening and the place was just starting to open up. It took a long time for food and drinks and boy was it worth the wait! No menu, just let them know what you are feeling for. We had the freshest fish ever, prepared perfectly, it literally melted in your mouth! Grilled seasonal vegetables and rice... More

Go here every time I come to Caye Caulker. The island is becoming expensive especially the medium range ones. But I like the experience here

Real deal here... Island food at island prices. Try the sampler plate. If your bug sensitive bring bug spray ( yes your eating outside on picnic tables)

we rented from Willy and his wife and it was an amazing experience, the place was nice and very convenient location and the food was AMAZING. Their dog Epu was the best, she came with us everywhere and was our personal tour guide.

What a disaster. Having caught our own fish on a deep sea dive, we were told that any of the restaurants in town would cook up our fish if we ordered sides and drinks. What we didn't expect was the appalling customer service we received - nor that Willy would help himself to our best cuts of tuna! There are... More
