We came in, like many people, from a dive trip and the boat suggested that we pre-order our dinner since there were 18 of us. So we did. But instead of doing the prep for the dishes so they could get them together properly when we arrived, they went ahead and made the dishes and let them get cold. Completely... More

This charming restaurant shares the same building as the Great House Hotel, but they are independent from each other. I've eaten there at least about 3 times, and I've always left very satisfied. The food is terrific! It's a bit on the pricey side, but you will enjoy your very tasty and creative meal. I had a fish dish with... More

I found this place on Google before to took a cruise on the Carnival Breeze. I found the place and ate there February 16, 2017. I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is a big, clean, open aired place with a mysterious, alluring atmosphere. There are water ponds and mermaid statues throughout. The service was very efficient and friendly. They were... More

Beautiful little dining area out back. That's where the beauty ended though. Service was ok. The food was ridiculously overpriced for what we got. Two wilted salads, soup that tasted like it was out of a can, and their version of shrimp scampi that was over cooked shrimp in chicken broth with frozen vegetables. Save your money and go somewhere... More

Smoky Mermaid was a very good choice for us. I loved the outdoor atmosphere and the cool Caribbean breeze that was blowing which made our experience comfortable. The food was excellent, I will recommend the grill fish, vegetables and bake potato it was delicious! The food was well cook and the service was great. I will definitely return there perhaps...

We had an OK lunch off their lunch menu and chose to return at dinner time to enjoy a main meal. That was a mistake. We should have stopped while we were ahead. I remember that a year or so ago that I had been served a very delicious whole grilled red snapper here. So we sat down and spoke... More

We walked over for dinner. We sat at a table. We were descended upon by biting insects that left welts on our legs and arms. Moisquitos in scenes was brought too late. We had fresh red snapper fillets, one grilled and the other encased in flakes of yuca. Both were well prepared and delicious. They were served with a few... More

The meal was very mediocre but the service was even worse. We had a last night on the town after our dive trip. We should have gone to the Radisson restaurant where the service was good and the servers were happy you were there. We sat in the air conditioned part of the restaurant and were basically ignored.

We went here our first night in Belize City because it was adjacent to our hotel and it looked very pretty and romantic. What a disappointment! Firstly, the cabernet was drinkable but very rough, not pleasant. My husband ordered a seafood Alfredo pasta dish, with which he was moderately satisfied and therefore the only reason I rated this place a... More
