Stopped for lunch. I had beef with rice and beans. Tasted like mom's pot roast cooked in a tomato based sauce. Very good flavor and very tender. Wife had shrimp with rice. Also, very good. Would go again. Probably try breakfast next time.

I Love Tina's! I went here 4 years ago when it was located at the south end of town and just came back to Hopkins and had to go to Tina's again. It was just as delicious as I remembered. The tortillas are the best thing ever, I had one with every meal. We tried the belizean breakfast, pineapple pancakes,... More

If you are looking for a taste of ethnic food Tina's is the place to go. It's on the outskirts of the village but worth the trek. They made sure we were taken care of. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and polite. The fish was fresh and the seasonings were great.

Do not judge it by modern looks. Her food was amazing. Best quesiadia my wife ever had. I had the chicken and rice. The she cooked me a flaming banana desert. With multiple drinks. Was also the most inexpensive place. $11.00 US for all that. Simply amazing bargain.

Lord the food!! Bless the Cook!!! I loved it. The food was reasonably priced and you got your fill. I was stuffed and only spent maybe $20USD including a tip, a drink, food, and a alcoholic beverage. Must Visit

Dropped in for lunch at this open-air restaurant in the heart of Hopkins, Belize. It is a family owned establishment. The kitchen is right next to the dining area so you can actually watch the owner as she prepares your meal. The food on the lunch menu is typical local fare... beans, rice and chicken served with fabulous flour tortillas.... More

Went to his local spot one night during a 10 night stay. Food was delicious. Bugs attacked us but that was fairly common anyway. You must eat here if you have time.

This place was great! Authentic and affordable. Waitress was kind and singing along to the music. My boyfriend ordered the Belizean breakfast special (fish, beans, Johnny cakes, and salsa) and I ordered veggie omelet (doesn't come with cheese so don't expect that) and a side of bacon. We each had coffee. Total was $31 BZ.

The food was only ok. The service stunk,,,the waitress was too busy watching tv with her boyfriend to pay attention to her only customers, us. I won't go back

Tina's Kitchen has been opened since 2011 and is currently at it's third location since business started due to the demand for more and more seating . The Owner Ms. Tina as she is known decided to start her own small business after working at various resorts where she mastered her cooking craft in Belizean Cuisine and the traditional Garifuna dishes which is a part of her rich culture. At Tina's you won't see fancy dining sets and so fort but the meals that are basically home cook and made to order is what keeps quest coming back. We have a very small staff of hard working Belizeans that are ready to cater to your needs and they always try their best to insure the Customers leave happy.

So the next time you are in Hopkins Village, Belize or planning a vacation to Belize then you would want to put Tina's on your list of places to dine. I can assure you the experiences will be worth it.
