What a great find on Caye Caulker! The amount of food for the money was beyond anything we could have imagined.

My boyfriend and I both had the chicken stew. It was so delicious and came with coleslaw, coconut rice and beans and chicken stew! Only 10 Belize dollars each and great service, highly recommend if you’re looking for yummy authentic food!

Our family of four stumbled onto Meldy’s on the recommendation of a local. Recently moved from the main strip, the place is a bit removed from the noise of the beach. A no-frills picnic-table place with absolutely AMAZING food. The kids were thrilled with the...More

During our stay, the hotel suggested this place for nice eats and it was. We had ordered Rice and beans with stew chicken, fried chicken, and another I forgot. In all, the food was really delicious. I recommend eating here if you're unsure for lunch.

If you're the type who enjoy's flavorful food and family style service this is the place to eat. It is located across the only bakery in Caye Caulker and not too far from the only bank on the island, Meldy's is the place for amazing meals at an affordable price. It's a small place, but even if it's a little crowded or if you're in a rush, ask about take out, the extensive menu includes seasonal lobster,fish, burgers and everything in between. Also, be sure to ask about Meldy's bacon wrapped baked chicken, it is nothing short of spectacular. So look out for the little pink and green building on middle street, tell them you came to see Meldy. If she's in, she might be able to fix you a customized menu based dish to suit your taste, just ask, this is your mom's kitchen away from home.
