SO delicious!! I ordered their signiture drink, the shrimp wonton appetizer, and the chicken panini with pineapple chutney. Everything was delicious and highly recommended. We would've gone again if we could!

Amazing service. Great drink selection including red and white sangria and infused rums. Cute outdoor seating for small or larger groups (8-10). All of the food I have had here as been amazing (especially ceviche). They have a great bakery and make lots of different cakes, pies, and cheese cakes.

Am a frequent visitor to The Guava Limb. However, i was disappointed on 2 occasions and by the same waiter. I've tried several times to get in contact with the manager and owners but they are either never around or busy i was told and apparently "I am not able to give out their cell numbers." My first incident, I... More

Friendly/helpful staff, beautiful venue, amazing (super fresh) food? Worth the walk! Our table was on the 2nd floor balcony overlooking a park and guava trees. The night's special was grilled lamb steaks over cornmeal gnocchi - delicious. Our party included a vegetarian and a gluten free eater - both were more than satisfied by the options offered - rave reviews!

Traveling from San Pedro to San Ignacio we had no idea of this hidden gem. We thought food was great on the island and we were mistaken. From the shrimp won-tons, soup of the day, drinks, meals, and the amazing banana cake on steroids. This place is locally sourced and all fresh. Plus the atmosphere is adorable and shiek. Go... More

We ate at the Guava Limb for my birthday- and wow! It was absolutely delicious. Not only was the restaurant accommodating (I am a celiac), it was reasonably priced and the atmosphere was almost magical. I had the Mayan Salad with a locally, freshly caught Snapper Fillet and it was the BEST snapper I've ever had! My Partner had the... More

The best meal I've had since I landed in Belize 3 weeks ago. Worth every $. Curried Coconut Shrimp seasoned with Kosher salt, black pepper, curry and coconut milk. Served with "delectable" ( which it was ) vegetable stuffed zucchini and a "flavorful" ( which it was ) Mexican quinoa. I ordered homemade organic carrot cake to go!

It was also by far the busiest. And for good reason. Super cute restored house and courtyard. Good menu and was mostly pretty cheap. The special turned out to be almost double a lot of the menu so watch for that. Drinks took forever but others got them fast. Was really good though. Most plates around 12 us. Had drinks,... More

I stayed across the road at D's Guest House (great spot) and smelled the delicious food coming from the Guava Limb each night. Well, after two nights, I could not resist, and I was not disappointed. The food was fantastic as was the setting and the service. I just walked in, so unfortunately could not eat outside, but the setting... More

The Guava Limb Cafe is San Ignacio's most recent addition to the Restaurant & Cafe chain. We offer a fresh, colonial yet modern option for dining in the greater Cayo District. The emphasis stands on serving the highest quality specialty coffee drinks, pastries, sandwiches, salads signature dishes and specials available in the Cayo area. We also do catering for breads and desserts. The Guava Limb Cafe has a breezy Caribbean feel with a European flavor. Organic in nature, our foods are farm-to-table local, fresh and does not have additional preservatives/flavor enhancers. The decor of the Cafe includes handmade furniture from around the world, and table ware is contemporary with simple lines to highlight the beautiful presentations of our cuisine. The Macal Park is a focal point for our patrons with the bustle of children playing, people strolling, as well as the lovely natural setting. We have a moderately priced, casual restaurant serving fine high quality food. The service style of our restaurant is a table service with a fine selection of wines. We have a relaxed atmosphere that encourages conversations between tables.
