Take away section is separated from the restaurant. Sweet and sour lobster - sauce is good but breading is too thick and very much pronounced. I think it is better to pay 5$ more and take grilled lobster. Fresh salad is too expensive and not worth spending money. Fresh juices are actually fresh and moreover without sugar, which is a...

What is open in Belize city at 900 pm on Monday? Chon Saan. And it was pretty busy for Monday night. We had shrimp stuffed eggplant which were excellent! We also ordered two conch dishes, the pepper conch was a little bit better than conch with vegetables. Our waiter was great and we liked the friendly family atmosphere.

The next morning when we went to the place at 8am,... More
