Very nice restaurant, with a great garden. A little hard to find, but Caye Culker is not that big... We had dinner there twice and the food was really good. Italian food, ok prices. Recommended.

We only visited for carryout pizza, but the service was excellent, atmosphere was a very pleasant surprise! We're going back in December and this will definitely be on our list of places to visit.
